old school friday...shoulda never been made  

Posted by SjP in

Oh Yeah! It's FRIDAY!!! And that means it's time for some old school jamming and par-taying in the blogosphere! This week's theme is "This Song Should Have Never Been Made".

For the last couple of weeks, I've been driving to the plantation listening to the one and only Jimi Hendricks on full blast. Jimi lived only a short 26 years but his music continues to live on. So, needless to say, that there is not one song of his that "should have never been made". But, there is one song - the Anthem of Nam - imo, that should have "never HAD to be made". That song is "Machine Gun".

Mrs Grapevine and Ms. Marvalus are the creators of this bloggie meme. Click here for more info and join the fun.

There's some real pain in that song. He should never have had a reason to make it.

Great choice!

Aside from the fact that Hendrix has always been my musical hero and the sole reason why I picked up a guitar, I like your take on the theme. You're right, the pain in this song should never have been given the reason...

Very, very nice twist on the theme. What a brief and brilliant life.

Happy OSF!

How I love how you looked at this theme...and this song is PERFECTION in how it showcases all the pain...

You are my shero!

Well said SjP, well said; there should never have been a reason to create this song.

@ George,

Good to see you my good friend. You should be able to click the "follow" button. If that doesn't work, you may need to subscribe to my feed. Let me know.

@ VP,

Yes, every time I hear this song it sends a pain right threw my heart. Had way too many relatives and friends who went to Nam...brings back bad memories.

@ Keith,

Kinda figured you'd like this one. I know you're a Jimi fan, too!

@ PDR,

He certainly made a huge impact on so many. Brilliant is right!

@ Ms Marva,

Always amazed me how he was able to get that guitar to sound just like a machine gun. Haunting...

You making me blush

@ HG,

I hear you!

Hoping and praying that all is well with you.
