Jukebox Saturday Night for January 20th, 2018: The Grover, Brian, and Queen Edition -OR- Radio Ga Ga, Radio Goo Goo

First up, a really nice piece from the late, prolific Grover Washington Jr ...

"Protect the Dream" by Grover Washington Jr. from his album Time Out of Mind (1989)


Next up, something new and nice from Brian Culbertson ...

"Colors of Love" by Brian Culbertson released as a single in 2017 but slated to be the lead song on his soon-to-be-released album of same name (2018)

According to Mr. Culbertson's website, the album Colors of Love is due out on Valentines Day. By the way, I really like the picture of him on his homepage.


And we'll end with one of the great songs ...

"Radio Ga Ga" by Queen from the group's album The Works (1984)

I love this song -- and the lyrics are quite poignant.

The video features clips of the legendary 1927 German expressionist sci-fi film Metropolis and, yes, that is the late, great Freddie Mercury as lead vocalist.

"You gave them all those old time stars / Through wars of worlds - invaded by Mars / You made 'em laugh - you made 'em cry / You made us feel like we could fly / So don't become some background noise / A backdrop for the girls and boys / Who just don't know, or just don't care / And just complain when you're not there / You have the time, you have the power / You've yet to have your finest hour / Radio (Radio)"


OK, that's all for now. My next planned entry will be late Monday (or early Tuesday).
