Jukebox Saturday Night for January 21st, 2017: It's Miss Riddle's and Crystal Whispers -OR- The Contact: Anywhere Is Edition

"Miss Riddle" by Boz Scaggs from his album Dig (2001)

This is a lovely song -- so mellow and smooth jazzy and wonderful.

Of note, according to Wikipedia, the album Dig was released on September 11, 2001 ...


"Crystal Whisper" by Paul Hardcastle from his Hardcastle VII release (2013)


And to conclude -- at the start of this Trumpian nightmare regime and after having just re-watched the Jodie Foster movie "Contact" tonight, I think this is appropriate ...

"Anywhere Is" by Enya from her fourth studio album The Memory of Trees (1995)

The lyrics are awesome and worth posting in full:

I walk the maze of moments
But everywhere I turn to
Begins a new beginning
But never finds a finish
I walk to the horizon
And there I find another
It all seems so surprising
And then I find that I know

You go there you're gone forever
I go there I'll lose my way
If we stay here we're not together
Anywhere is

The moon upon the ocean
Is swept around in motion
But without ever knowing
The reason for its flowing
In motion on the ocean
The moon still keeps on moving
The waves still keep on waving
And I still keep on going


I wonder if the stars sign
The life that is to be mine
And would they let their light shine
Enough for me to follow
I look up to the heavens
But night has clouded over
No spark of constellation
No Vela no Orion

The shells upon the warm sands
Have taken from their own lands
The echo of their story
But all I hear are low sounds
As pillow words are weaving
And willow waves are leaving
But should I be believing
That I am only dreaming


To leave the thread of all time
And let it make a dark line
In hopes that I can still find
The way back to the moment
I took the turn and turned to
Begin a new beginning
Still looking for the answer
I cannot find the finish.

It's either this or that way
It's one way or the other
It should be one direction
It could be on reflection
The turn I have just taken
The turn that I was making
I might be just beginning
I might be near the end.

OK, that's all for now. My next entry will likely not be until Tuesday night. Please see my previous entry for an entry.
