Jukebox Saturday Night for July 1st, 2017: The Bob Thompson, Steve Winwood, and Maroon 5 Edition -OR- Half Way Through the Year

First up, a nice piece ...


"Coming Home to You" by Bob Thompson from his album Love Dance (1992)

To be clear, this piece is by Bob Thompson (pictured left) of the Bob Thompson Band. It's a bit confusing since there was another musician named Bob Thompson who passed away in May 2013 whose musical genre overlapped somewhat with the Bob Thompson whose piece is featured above, specifically, in the smooth jazz area.

As a complimentary (not complementary) piece, the Bob Thompson featured in tonight's Jukebox Saturday Night edition is the artist who produced this lovely, mournful piece:


"Sometimes I Feel Like a Motherless Child" by Bob Thompson from his album Ev'ry Time I Feel the Spirit (1996)

I really like this piece although the title is almost too poignant for me.

Shifting gears, here is one of Steve Winwood's big song hits ...


"While You See a Chance" by Steve Winwood from his album Arc of a Diver (1980)

It's a pleasant, melodic song -- at once sad and upbeat and with poignant and poetic lyrics. As for the video, it's a strange and slightly psychedelic one suitable, I suppose, for what was really the end of the 1970s.

Finally, let's end with something a little more recent and while it isn't particularly Saturday night energetic, the video accompanying it certainly is ...


"Daylight" by Maroon 5 from the group's Overexposed album (2012)

This video version is set to action-centered clips of the 2012 movie The Amazing Spider-Man -- and not to be confused with its 2014 sequel The Amazing Spider-Man 2. (For clips from the latter set to this song, see here.)

Sally Field stars in these movies as Aunt May. Has Sally Field ever been in a post-Gidget/post-Flying Nun roles that wasn't dour life-and-death?

OK, that's all for now. Please see my previous entry for an update.
