Five on Friday Set 108

Posted: Friday, February 17, 2012 by Travis Cody in

We don't get all that chuffed about Valentines Day in the Travis and Pam abode.  If we can't get a dinner biggie.  If we can't get away for the biggie.  If there's no chocolates and biggie.

Wait...yes, there is always chocolates and flowers.  What do you think I am, anyway?


But the point is that Pam is not just my Lady, my love, and my life on Valentines Day.  She is every day.  She is every moment of every day.

She just is.

For Set 108, I thought I would try to tell you about that feeling in music. 

It can be sweet.  It can be silly.  It can be surprising.  It can be inexplicable.  It can be maddening.  It can be raw and full of lust.  It can be quiet and comfortable.

It is never boring.

Here, There, and Everywhere, written by Sir Paul McCartney, released by The Beatles in 1966
