Today is my darling hubby's birthday. We decided to have a day out at the seaside. We were just going over the Humber Bridge, the sun was shining and this song came on the radio. HAPPY!

I love the first Audioslave album and have been listening to it as often as I can recently. My favourite track is probably Cochise - which I have already jammed about 3 times. It has been really diffcult deciding which track to jam next. I like them all. This one came out of the hat but I will probably be jamming more in the future. PLAY IT LOUD!

I'll confess that I'm not the biggest Progrock fan......yet. I am trying. (Hubby would probably interject with "Very!" there). The very patient @mikelowe and @21schizoid are doing their best to educate me. I do like some stuff but can't listen to it for hours at a time. I really like this track and hope it is an acceptable offering for #progweekend . :-)

by Electric Light Orchestra
I first heard this a few months ago on the Chris Evans' show. He liked it so much that he immediately played it again. It has a great riff. Listen through some decent headphones and turn up the volume. :-)
Jammed: 3rd Aug 2014
I really enjoyed my recent holiday and had a lovely time meeting friends, old and new, in Glasgow, Skye and Edinburgh. I'm now looking forward to getting back in the Jamming groove. I think this song is ready for another play - it reminds me of a nice, warm, rainy day in Scotland, with a log burning fire and delicious soup and cake. :-)

Hello! I'm back. What's that? You hadn't noticed my absence? That's OK. :-) My first jam for a while is for my dear hubby, Ian. Today is his birthday. PS - Thanks to @mikelowe who was concerned enough to mount a search and rescue mission. :-)

by Ram Jam Band
Girls names - Song 19. I've just returned from a lovely weekend away at a spa. We were all very well behaved. There were 11 of us there for my daughter's "hen do". There were 3 Beckys but no Bettys. I have jammed this before but it was a while ago and it fits in with my theme. It is a great song. Excellent guitar,drum and bass playing. The only thing wrong with it is that it is far too short!

by The Police
Girls names. Song 7. This brings back happy memories - including driving around with my sister, with all the windows wound down, singing along at the top of our voices, no doubt annoying anyone in earshot. But when I hear Roxanne I mainly think of when we saw The Police at a gig at the Milton Keynes Bowl in 1980 ( http://www.ukrockfestivals.com/Milton-Keynes-1980.html ). The atmosphere was fantastic - with thousands singing along, in the dark, knee deep in mud.

by Barry Manilow
Girls' names. Song 6. I've loved this since I first heard it back in the early 70s. I wouldn't necessarily choose to listen to a lot of Barry's stuff, but.....I think this is a great song, well sung. :-)
Jammed: 31st Jan 2014
Song 2: - My little sister, Jennifer, was 9 when this was released. She quickly got fed up of us singing "Jennifer Juniper" every time we spoke to her or called to her. I think it is a sweet little song.

by Dr. Feelgood
I've decided to have a theme for my next few jams. The songs will be quite varied and some may be more popular than others. I like them all. This is number 1 of the series. I think it's a cracker. :-)
Jammed: 7th Jan 2014
by The Miracles
There I was, pondering, as I drove home from work, thinking about what my next jam should be, when this came on the radio....and I pondered no more. It was the line - "I'm just a love machine, a hugging, kissing fiend" that decided it for me. :-)

I first saw this band at the Sheffield Polytechnic (now Hallam University) Students Union Nelson Mandela building in 1980 when my little sister was a student. It was one of the best gigs I have EVER been to. The band was fantastic. They had so much energy and enthusiasm. I saw them a couple more times in the early 80s. They are still touring all over Europe and the UK - perhaps a little more sedately than they did 30 odd years ago. I like so many of their songs - this is one of my favourites - recorded in 1980. :-)

This is my cousin Paul's band. They started out in 1979 and disbanded in 1983. The band reformed in 2010 and I was at their first performance in 27 years in their hometown, Hull, at The Adelphi on 20 November that year. It was a great gig. I have seen them once since then but have been unable to follow them to subsequent gigs in the UK and in Europe. I wish them well. Why not give them a listen?
Jammed: 1st Dec 2013
by Bryan Ferry
Oh how we danced..... I heard this on the radio yesterday and remembered how we loved dancing to it back in the 70s. There was a rather repetitive dance move which involved swinging your hips low followed by a knee lift/kick. Sounds a bit odd but we thought it was very sexy at the time. I don't think my hips would do it justice now. :-)

by Dusty Springfield
My Dad had quite a few records. Mainly LPs - but he did have some 45s. One of those singles was Dusty's 'I just don't know what to do with myself' - a great song. I always preferred the B side - 'My colouring book'. As a young child I thought it was strange that a grown up would be singing about a colouring book - but even then I thought it was a beautiful song. It is nearly 23 years since my dear Dad passed away. I still miss him. He liked this song too. I would have preferred a video that just showed Dusty - but this was the only version I could find.
Jammed: 19th Oct 2013
by Roger Daltrey
I've liked this since I first heard it in 1973. I didn't know who had written it until I saw this video. It couldn't have been anyone else really, could it? It seems so obvious now. :-)
Jammed: 12th Oct 2013
This is one of my "special" songs. Hubby and I got engaged just over 32 years ago in September 1981 - 5 months after meeting on a blind date. He would sing this to me whenever it came on the radio and it became "our song". We got married in March 1982. Still love the song and the man. :-)

by The Police
The Police at their punkiest for #punkweek. This was the first single they released (in 1977) - when guitarist was Henry Padovani. This live version is, of course, with the great Andy Summers. I found it hard to decide what to jam this week - this just beat another favourite - Visions of the Night ( http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KkzFOC15P8s ).
Jammed: 27th Sep 2013
by The Rolling Stones
I remember going to my Grandma's house in the 60s and listening to my Dad's youngest brothers' 45s. I loved so many of them. This was one of my favourites from their Stones collection. It doesn't seem to get much airplay these days. I think it's worth a listen.
Jammed: 14th Sep 2013
by Peter Gabriel
I think this is a great track. Best listened to on vinyl through a high end hi-fi system using really good speakers that can deliver the great bass sounds ...but headphones and a lap top are better than nothing. I think drugs may have been involved in the video production.....weird.

by Samuel Barber
This music is beautiful and moving. I love the way it builds and builds. It is particularly intense from approx 5:00 to 7:00. It is especially breathtaking at 6:40 to 7:00. If you don't like the words on the video - just close your eyes and let the music speak to you. I'm jamming the Adagio, not the Desiderata. This is longer than a lot of jams but it is worth a listen. If you like choral music - this is a good link: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KkObnNQCMtM
