Music Monday ~ It's Gonna Be Me (David Bowie)

R.I.P. David Bowie. You'll be missed.

My son wrote a post about Bowie for my other blog, Life With Dee. It includes a 25-song playlist which is well worth checking out.

Music Monday ~ "Just Like You" (Keb' Mo')

I've been doing my "Music Monday" series on my new blog, Life With Dee. However, I think I will move it back here. I may start posting some other things here as well. With this being a presidential election year I may very well have something to say about all that. ;) I'm also considering starting up my Saturday B.S. Roundup posts again.

Temporary Hiatus

The Well-Groomed Hippie is taking a (hopefully) temporary break. On September 1st I launched my new site, Life With Dee. All content from my former blogs, Tea With Dee and Dee's Kitchen has been imported to the new site and I am now posting there every day. I also have some guest writers, including my son who is doing a weekly feature called "Timely Tunes". I am continuing to post "Music Monday" on the new site, as well.

I hope you will check out what I'm doing on Life With Dee. And if you miss my political commentary, be sure to follow The Well-Groomed Hippie page on Facebook.

Be back soon...

Music Monday ~ Bohemian Rhapsody (Queen) performed by Edgar Cruz

We spent the weekend at our favorite Oklahoma City hotel, The Skirvin. Just as we were finishing a late Sunday morning breakfast, a guitarist began setting up right next to our table:

He handed David a flyer listing his music and upcoming shows. Turns out this was Edgar Cruz, a well-known guitarist. Even though we had finished our breakfast we stayed long enough to enjoy several songs, including Bohemian Rhapsody: 

Pretty incredible, right? Once again we were in the right place at the right time.

Music Monday ~ "Evening Kitchen" (Band of Horses)

Last night a friend asked me on Facebook if I listen to Band of Horses and specifically recommended this song:

Beautiful, isn't it? And yes, I do listen to them:

"No One's Gonna Love You"

Have a beautiful week, my hippie friends!

Music Monday ~ "Harvest Moon" (Neil Young)

Sometimes we watch the webcam at Tropical Isle in New Orleans. We have several musician friends who play there. We can watch the webcam and text them song requests. Last night our friends, Rhythm and Rain, played "Harvest Moon" for me. This past April when we were there our dear friend "Captain Ron" requested this song. They had never played it before but that didn't stop them. They did a beautiful job. I requested it in honor of "Captain Ron" and they were happy to oblige. It's such a beautiful song.

As I was writing this post I remembered that I had recorded a bit of Rhythm and Rain playing this back in April:

Captain Ron

Happy Monday!
