Rainy Days and Mondays Always Get Me...

The ending word to this Carpenters title is ... "down". But I would have to disagree. At least today. However, I have that song in my head now, so I will torture you with it as well for a moment.

And now the title looks dumb since today isn't Monday.  I just realized that.  Oh well.

I once saw an interview with Olivia Newton-John (one of my other childhood idols) where she mentioned that Karen Carpenter had perfect pitch.  Can you imagine singing any song you want and being able to hit each note perfectly? I never knew that about Karen, and I never appreciated the ability to hit a note perfectly until I started playing Rock Band.

... And mention of Olivia Newton-John has caused me to post one of my favorite songs by her.

Huh... and now after hearing her sing "Magic" live, I can see why she would appreciate the ability to sing pitch perfect. No offense, Olivia.

This wasn't what I wanted to blog about.

But, I'll save my experience jogging with my puppy Travis (who turned 8 on the 10th) in the downpour for tomorrow.

I don't know...I thought she was great. It was strange to see a concert without all the "shock and awe" stuff...just the artist singing. I still like her.....lol..Mom
