Playlist: Listen, my friends! ~ April 2011

April 1, 2011

In the words of Moby Grape… listen, my friends! Yes, it’s the (hopefully) monthly playlist presented by George’s Journal just for you good people.

There may be one or two classics to be found here dotted in among different tunes you’re unfamiliar with or never heard before – or, of course, you may’ve heard them all before. All the same, why not sit back, listen away and enjoy…

** Did you know… songwriter David Paich gave this tune its title following his break-up with actress Rosanna Arquette – as to it actually about her though, well, that’s probably unlikely
