Stormy Weather

We've had an unusual week of Spring like weather here on the plain Plains. Today, rain and cloudy...but still relatively warm. A Billie Holiday kind of day.



And...I can't stop:



More, more, more:



There are worse ways to spend one's Sunday, methinks.

A Sunday with Bilie is a perfect Sunday for me.

jadedj said...

Bob---Yes indeed...still listening to her at this moment.

Mr. Charleston said...

JJ's in a melancholy mood. Shit fire boy, you could be watchin' the Daytona 500!

MRMacrum said...

Surely beats the head bangin festival over to Randal's. One of the greatest American voices ever.

Punch said...

Mr. C. candy ass race if you axe me. At least a boy won in a Wood Brothers rig.
I hate it when I wake up and the news is on recappin' the race.
Why do the t baggers like a racing style that only turns left.

jadedj said...

Mr. C---Well piss on the matches and eat my grits, boy...my wife read me the headlines from Yahoo, regards Daytona, with that look of "don't be fucking with those hillbilly races when there's Billie Holiday on the Ipod...right now, Roy." Understand?

MRMacrum---Truer words were never spoken. Although...there's something to be said for headbanging too.

Punch---I present to you that one must know one's right from one's left, before realizing that it is a commie thing that one is participating in.

Mr. Charleston said...

I gotcha JJ. Or is that Mrs. JJ? I saw a blurb on a film today that starred Billie Holliday. Should have watched it.

Any day is a great day for listening to Lady Day!

Chimp said...

Yes, "The Lady Sings The Blues" and smooth jazz singing, very well. I do like her vocals on a rainy day.

diane said...

I've got a Billie Holiday station on Pandora, it plays her and music that's similar. Great stuff.

Harlequin said...

agree, agree; a great way to spend a sweet sunday. methinks any gorgeous creative expressive indulgence also qualifies.

Susan said...

Hey, aren't you supposed to be getting a snowstorm?

YELLOWDOG GRANNY said...

my second favorite singer.

jadedj said...

Mr. C---Missed it.

DSWS---A seeker you are.

Chimp---No mere simian, you. Actually, I thought you would be a fan.

diane---Oh wow. I had to Google Pandora...that is coooooooool! Thanks. Good find!

Harlequin---The two go together.

Susan---We dodged it! Turned back cold again today, though.

YD G---And first?

Chimp said...

Your Simian friend, Bonzo, is in the news again.

Tom Harper said...

Great tunes. I'm one of those versatile (some people might use a different term) people who likes Billie Holiday AND head-bangin' metal.

jadedj said...

Chimp---I thought Bonzo had a memory problem...thinks he is the ex-president, even though he is deceased.

Tom---I like pretty much every genre...except...you've probably guessed it...Rap. Rap trap, I call it.

YD G---Another great soul singer!
