Terribly sad news in the music industry. (Heard about it a couple of hours after yesterday.)

Rock ‘n roll musician and legend Chuck Berry has died. 😦

Rock ‘n Roll Legend Chuck Berry Dies at 90

Chuck Berry, Rock ‘n’ Roll Pioneer, Dead at 90

I’ve been listening to rock ‘n roll for most of my life, to be honest, and this news was both saddening and shocking to me for various reasons that I’m not going into here. Chuck Berry was one of, if not, rock’s greatest practitioners, guitarists, and the best pure rock ‘n roll writer who ever lived. He’s going to be sorely missed.

Here’s the iconic song from 1958.

*sigh*

It’s Monday morning.

Start of another work week, right after the switch over to Daylight Savings Time. So I thought I’d offer something pleasant for the morning. This is Delta Goodrem performing one of her huge hits, “In This Life”. (Back in 2007.)

One of the things I’ve always said is that I’m quite likely to die with a stack of books that I won’t have read left behind.

Here’s proof of this. This load of books arrived in snail mail yesterday, Monday the 6th.

And here’s the second batch of books that was waiting at my door when I got home this afternoon. (There was also a Delta Goodrem CD with this package, but you can’t make that one out too well.)

I’m glad to have received the books, now just gotta find time to read them all. 🙂

Home from work. It has been a long day, and I’m tired, still somewhat sick, and my foot problem is bothering me quite a bit today.

So I figure I’ll brighten my mood. I love Mike Oldfield’s music, and one of my favourite late 1980s videos of his music is this lovely, cheerful (somewhat weird) piece. Enjoy the video! 🙂

And for those who want to see it live, here’s a version of the performance version of the song.

Haven’t heard of this artist until yesterday, but there’s something about Tove Lo‘s music. Note this video is NSFW due to some of the lyrics and the last part of the video. So be warned. And I’ve been earwormed. 🙂

I’m not sure why, but I have a feeling that it’s going to be one of those days.

So, in that spirit, I present this video today.

This needs to be posted today, at this moment.

Seems…fitting.

Seeing as it’s Christmas, I thought I would post up this Jethro Tull Christmas video. Fits the season, for sure. 🙂

In honour of my having seen Rogue One: A Star Wars Story this past week, I thought I’d post one of my favourite music video parodies…

Enjoy! 🙂
