Episode Nine -- It's Not My Song

THIS LAST WEEKEND, ONE OF MY KAREOKE D.J'S, JON B., ASKED IF HE COULD SING A SONG THAT I'VE BEEN DOING FOR A LONG WHILE, A SONG CALLED "GOODNIGHT, SAIGON." BILLY JOEL WROTE THIS FOR HIS FRIENDS WHO HAD TO GO OFF TO FIGHT IN VIETNAM. AS BILLY JOEL PUT IT, "THEY LEFT AS BOYS, AND CAME BACK AS OLD MEN. AND THEY WERE THE LUCKY ONES, BECAUSE MANY OF THEM DIDN'T COME BACK AT ALL." IT BROKE MY HEART TO GIVE IT UP, BUT IT'S JOHN'S SONG NOW. IT'S NOT MY SONG. REALLY, IT NEVER WAS MINE. SO WHY DID I SING IT IN THE FIRST PLACE? I WAS WAY TOO YOUNG TO HAVE TO GO TO VIETNAM. WHY WOULD I FEEL SO STRONGLY ABOUT A SONG ABOUT THAT WAR?

I blame a lot on My Unfortunate Condition.  But, to be fair, a lot of what has happened to me has been my own fault, and it's about time I said so.

Theme Music: "Hot Swing" from Kevin MacLeod  http://incompetech.com/m/c/royalty-free/

The featured song at the end is "Dreaming My Life Away" by Al Carmichael.  I got it from Garage Band, at http://www.garageband.com/artist/betteroffdud

I tend to believe everybody, though I know I shouldn't.  Which means either something bad happened this week, or didn't. 

The theme music is still "Hot Swing" from Kevin MacLeod (http://incompetech.com/m/c/royalty-free/).  I re-engineered a bit, hope it doesn't blast you out of your chair anymore.

Oh, and I ended with a feature song I thought appropriate, and I think you'll like, and if you liked it, here's how to get a high-quality copy for yourself.

I'VE DECIDED TO GO AHEAD AND HAVE MY MID-LIFE CRISIS NOW. I GATHER THAT'S ONE OF THE THINGS I'M SUPPOSED TO DO AT SOME TIME. BUT DOING THE MATH, I DECIDED THE PAST FEW TIMES IT'S COME TO MIND, IT WAS TOO EARLY.

I'M A READER. I'M NOT JUST AN OCCASIONAL READER. WHENEVER I LEAVE THE HOUSE, I HAVE A BOOK WITH ME. WHENEVER I'M TAKING A BREAK FROM DOING SOMETHING ELSE, I'M READING. SOMETIMES WHEN I'M DOING SOMETHING ELSE, I'M READING.

Got my first audio comment, from Rich from the "Bloodthirsty Vegetarians" podcast, which I added at the end of the show.  Always nice to be appreciated; haven't done this long, so I sometimes wonder if I'm doing it right...
