tunes i like tuesday: waiting for the sun



Have I mentioned that I hate the cat and mouse game Spring likes to play?  A snowy morning on Sunday and temperatures in the low 20s tonight are not the harbingers of Spring I've been hoping for. They do, however, make me think of The Doors and their song "Waiting for the Sun"; leftover from their album of the same name, the song eventually found a home on the 1970 release,  Morrison Hotel.  While Morrison Hotel didn't father any major hits for The Doors, it marked a return to their bluesy rock and roll roots. Personally, that is The Doors sound I love the most.


Waiting for the sun 
Waiting for the sun 
Waiting for the sun 


Can you feel it 
Now that Spring has come 
That it's time to live in the scattered sun 


So while we wait for Spring to cooperate (at least here in the Mid-Atlantic), enjoy some Doors and think great Spring-y thoughts. What songs does all this waiting make you think about? Perhaps another song by the same name, like The Jayhawks "Waiting for the Sun"??? (An excellent, though very different, song.) Let me know... if I have to wait much longer, I'm going to need a musical intervention!

  4. I hate the Cat and Mouse game of Spring too and so do my allergies. :/

    But I love Waiting for the Sun (the song, I mean). I often wonder what would have become of Jim Morrison had he lived. He was so talented...

  5. Your song choice is perfect for how Spring has been springing erratically this year! :)

  7. No sun here either and the wind even has a bite to it. Yesterday was gorgeous, but no sun. We even put our screens back in our windows. ~hehe~ Thanks for playing along. Hope to see next week too. Although today's theme was Christian music, but to each their own. ~hehe~

  10. I know exactly what you mean, the sun arrived but until today it has been accompanied by a strong north westerly wind, which is not so good. At least winter is officially over. I enjoyed as always listening to your Tuesday Tune.
