My name is Chris and I am a Florida girl who loves flower photography, chasing light, and guitar players, among other things. All images are mine unless otherwise specified.

 

Elton John - Goodbye Yellow Brick Road

By request for cattyfantastic - How could I do the 70s and forget Elton?  Thanks for the reminder, Mel!

Creating a huge spreadsheet to catalog antique watches.  If “fob” wasn’t a funny word before, after typing it a bazillion times, it damn sure is now.

Linda Ronstadt - Blue Bayou - 1977

Originally recorded by the iconic Roy Orbison in 1963, it became a massive hit for Linda Ronstadt in ‘77.  It is on the soundtrack of my childhood because it is one of my mom’s absolute favorites.  Even now, if I play it on the big stereo, she gets this sentimental little smile on her face and stops whatever she’s doing to listen to it.

Glen Campbell - Rhinestone Cowboy - 1975

Need to get a little 70’s country in here.

Barry Manilow - Even Now - 1978

By request for gabalotmom: My girl has rich and varied music tastes.  

Vintage Barry, feathered perm and all.

Supertramp - Take The Long Way Home - 1979

By request for ohhelloholly: These live versions are the only videos I can find.  Close enough, right?

Rufus and Chaka Khan - Tell Me Something Good - 1974

By request for embracethelost: I feel like I should find a way to photoshop Chris Evans into the video for her.

Bonus points to whoever can tell me who’s introducing the band at the beginning of this clip?

Queen - Fat Bottomed Girls - 1978

One of the many, many songs I will play at dangerously high volumes in my car.

Linda Ronstadt - Poor Poor Pitiful Me - 1978

There might be more than one Ronstadt song today.  This one is just pure fun.  And dig that cowbell intro.

Wire - 1 2 X U - 1977

Requested by vasolinejesus: Punk rocker til the day he dies, if I don’t miss my guess.
