This week’s Easy Friday’s episode features one of my all-time favorites.
I remember the first time I heard this song, I was still young and stupid that I don’t even know the title and the artist! However, I continue to hum along and do the slow headbanging motions.
It’s chill . . . It’s from rock n’ roll’s glory days — an era when people love rock more than pop music (not that I have a big grudge against pop, but one does feel like most modern pop songs sounds awfully alike in some way). Anyway, Foghat might not be as big as The Rolling Stones or David Bowie in the 70’s, but they made an impression (at least to me) that will last throughout my shortening lifetime.Continue reading Easy Fridays 011: Slow Ride by Foghat→
As my fingers danced across the keyboard, composing this post, the welcome silence that I’ve been craving for months has finally arrived. In observance of the holy week that leads to Easter Sunday, everyone’s expected to be quiet and repentant, at least in an environment dominated by religious Catholics.
I remember, when I was young(er), my mom used to play this cassette tape of The Greatest Hits of America on her boom box almost every day. She’d play the whole thing — side A and B — and move on to the next record. Then, whenever she’s not around, I’d play that America record to three particular songs, hitting the forward and rewind buttons over and over again to my heart’s content.
And so today, while thinking of the right soundtrack to the weekend to feature on Easy Fridays, Ventura Highway immediately came to mind.

Whenever I hear this song, it just makes me think of long drives with friends, windows open, wind blasting my hair from my face and laughing at some old joke that only we can relate to. It’s a nice image that I miss doing so much. I wonder when we can do that again. It seems like ages since. Hmm. . .
