From sweet and smooth classics, to new names, to old names with new music...the focus here, is to shine a little light on some damn fine music.

I'll find it. You can listen, review, or tell me I wouldn't know good music if it kicked me in the ass. I personally don't give a shit.

Santa and the Lady in Red... ho, ho, ho

It's funny how ideas can just come out of thin air. I wasn't really thinking about writing for Lance's 100 Word Song this week. I'm in the middle of a review, and there's an interview to transcribe. But for some odd reason the phrase "Christmas in July" came to mind, and boom. Had an idea.

It came all at once, wrote it, looked at the word count... 100. Read it through, didn't change a thing. So it's fresh and pretty much unedited. But nobody dies so there's that.

Ruby picked the song this week, and though you can use any part of it as inspiration, it's the title that sets it all up. It's an blast from the past by Chris De Burgh.

"Lady In Red"

He looked up from the work at hand and caught her glance. Even in the same red dress she’d worn forever, she still took his breath away.

Catching his glance, she smiled. After all these many years, he still had that twinkle in his eye. As much as she loved this busy season, the 26th could not come quick enough. She missed him, and if that sigh he let out was any indication, he missed her too.

Soon enough the gifts would be delivered, the helpers gone home, and they’d have some time alone.

And to all, a good night.
