Jukebox Saturday Night for June 2nd, 2018: Rainy Old Fashioned Edition -OR- In Xanadu ...

OK, let's start out with a really smooth jazz piece whose title seems appropriate for the weather …

"Rain Down on Me" by Euge Groove (feat. Peter White) from his album Got 2 Be Groovin (2014)


Next up, some old school "bebop" jazz …

"I'm Old Fashioned" by John Coltrane from his album Blue Train (1958)

"I'm Old Fashioned" is from 1942 song and was composed by Jerome Kern with lyrics written by Johnny Mercer, but this is a Coltrane non-vocal bebop ballad.


Finally, we'll end with something suitably Saturday night upbeat …

"Xanadu" by Electric Light Orchestra with lyrics by Olivia Newton-John from the soundtrack album of same name and video excerpt from the musical movie of same name (1980)


I've already featured this song way back in this March 2014 JBSN edition, but I think it's fine to re-feature it.

OK, that's all for now. Please see my previous entry. My next planned one will be late Monday or early Tuesday.
