Usually on Tuesdays, I post a poem. This Tuesday, however, I couldn’t find a poem that suited my mood. So I thought maybe a song, since lyrics are essentially poems. Again, I couldn’t think of an appropriate song, so I googled “greatest song of all time.” The search results sent me to Rolling Stones 500 Greatest Songs of All Time. Their number one song was no surprise “Like a Rolling Stone” by Bob Dylan. I hate Bob Dylan. I can’t understand a word he mumbles. I do like his son’s music though. Is it a joke that Rolling Stone picked “Like a Rolling Stone“? I looked and couldn’t find any place that said it was a joke. Anyway, that’s me babbling for the day. What is your greatest song of all time? Mine might just have to be “The Impossible Dream” from The Man From La Mancha. That’s the one that came to my head anyway.

About Joe

I began my life in the South and for five years lived as a closeted teacher, but am now making a new life for myself as an oral historian in New England. I think my life will work out the way it was always meant to be. That doesn't mean there won't be ups and downs; that's all part of life. It means I just have to be patient. I feel like October 7, 2015 is my new birthday. It's a beginning filled with great hope. It's a second chance to live my life…not anyone else's. My profile picture is "David and Me," 2001 painting by artist Steve Walker. It happens to be one of my favorite modern gay art pieces. View all posts by Joe

    Sometimes listening to Mr. Mister’s “Kyrie Elaison” has moved me when I have felt alone and was answering God’s call. Bon Jovi’s song, “It’s My Life” has reminded me not to be drawn into other people’s shit that might prevent me from moving forward. Nina Simone’s “One More Sunday in Savannah” always has me in tears as I remember the context of the MLK assassination and leaves me longing to be in my hometown. It always leaves me in tears: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gLWSw01NxKY.
