Music Monday Twofer

Because I've been so lame about blogging lately I am posting two videos for Music Monday. Oddly, both feature Eric Clapton. Happy Memorial Day everyone.

Today's video selection is in honour of Pete Townshend's birthday tomorrow. It's an audience shot video that leaves much to be desired but the audio is keen and shows Pete at his best (IMHO), solo acoustic. Especially love when he calls a heckler a cunt. Bravo! Hey Pete, your genius is showing...a touching tribute to the great and legendary Jim Capaldi.

Peter Dennis Blandford "Pete" Townshend born 19 May 1945 in Chiswick, England

I just haven't felt like it.

Happy (Belated) Birthday Donovan

Donovan (Donovan Phillips Leitch, born 10 May 1946, in Glasgow) with The Jeff Beck Group backing. I love this song.

To a Stranger ~ Walt Whitman

Passing stranger! you do not know
How longingly I look upon you,
You must be he I was seeking,
Or she I was seeking
(It comes to me as a dream)

I have somewhere surely
Lived a life of joy with you,
All is recall'd as we flit by each other,
Fluid, affectionate, chaste, matured,

You grew up with me,
Were a boy with me or a girl with me,
I ate with you and slept with you, your body has become
not yours only nor left my body mine only,

You give me the pleasure of your eyes,
face, flesh as we pass,
You take of my beard, breast, hands,
in return,

I am not to speak to you, I am to think of you
when I sit alone or wake at night, alone
I am to wait, I do not doubt I am to meet you again
I am to see to it that I do not lose you.
