Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays to everyone that reads this blog. I wish you all the best!
To close out our favorite Holiday Songs series I have two special Holiday Greetings from the southern US where I live. First up is Christmas in Dixie which was written and recorded by the group Alabama. For those of you that are not from the US, Dixie refers to the southern states in the US.
Next up is a great song by Jimmy Buffet called Merry Christmas Alabama.
Our final post in this series is my all time favorite Holiday song, I Believe In Father Christmas by Greg Lake one of the very best voices in rock music. Christmas, as it is celebrated today, has become overly commercialized in my opinion and I think this song is a wonderful protest against what Christmas has become. As always…..let me know what you think!
Up first in the “My Final Playlist” series of posts is a song from Jimmy Buffet.
Years ago I read a book about Steve Jobs titled “The Journey Is The Reward.” That title (which I later learned was from an old Chinese proverb) really made an impression on me and has shaped the way that I look at life. In my opinion, life is not about the wealth that we accumulate, the fame that we achieve, or the things that we buy along the way. Life is all about the journey and the people that we meet (and help) along the way.
With this philosophy in mind, there is no better metaphor for life than a cruise which makes today’s song is a strong contender for “My Final Playlist.” When I sail into that final port, I want everyone to know that although the cruise is ending it has been lovely and I wouldn’t change a thing.
