It's neat to know that this is his first album out in five years, his eighteenth solo album of his career, and his first #1 Billboard album in thirty six years. At 76 years old, he is both still rocking out and harnessing a life lived by weaving his humanness into sweet songs that make for the perfect soundtrack for solo walks around the city or dinner making dance parties in your kitchen. I'm not wishing away time, but have got to tell you that these songs make me feel more hopeful about aging. What if getting older could mean gathering more gold for the things we create?
If you're feeling in need of some motivation to keep making the magic, head on over and give it a listen and let me know what your favorite song on the album is! I keep changing my mind but today, I'd say I'd have to go with Happy With You, which has some of my favorite lyrics I've heard in awhile.
I walked around angry
I used to feel bad
But nowadays my days
Don't have to be sad
'Cos I'm happy, with you
I got lots of good thing to do, oh yeah
Take care this week, Friends! There's lots of good things to do.
