Pruzy Is Wings Greatest the band or the album name? Or is it the Paul led Wings which means it is both 🤔 1mo
Kimbono @Pruzy The greatest hits of Paul McCartney & Wings. Your question made me feel old, haha. 👵🏻(me) (edited) 1mo
Pruzy @Kimbono Whaaat! No! Everyone knows the Beatles...I‘m sure next to everyone knows Wings since it is the next logical listening step! 1mo

New books! I can‘t wait to read Big Sky but feel like I need to take a peek back at the series first. I think I‘ll cheat and rewatch the series instead of rereading all of the books. 😋

Friday morning reading soundtrack with special guest Gus. #readingsoundtrack

Bookwomble Dusty ❤ 2mo
Kimbono @Bookwomble I‘m late to the party with Dusty but wow, is there a better song than No Easy Way Down?!?! 2mo
Bookwomble @Kimbono Well, I do love her version of "If You Go Away". ? https://youtu.be/wyCVxPEPx5Y 2mo

Bookwomble @Kimbono You've for me listening to Dusty in Memphis, and No Easy Way Down is a gorgeous song. She has such a pure, emotive voice. She and Scott Walker would be my dream duet. 2mo
Kimbono @Bookwomble I had not heard of Scott Walker. What an interesting voice! I think he and Dusty would have made for a great duet. 2mo
Bookwomble Scott had the best voice. He was American, but better known in the UK with his 60s/70s group, The Walker Brothers (none of them had that surname and they weren't brothers!) Scott's first four solo albums are classic, winning him celeb fans like David Bowie. His last few albums were avant garde experimental works, still with his distinctive vocals - I'm gushing because I love him so much! Sadly, he died earlier this year 🖤❤🖤 2mo
Kimbono @Bookwomble I‘m going to have to spend some time and go down a Scott Walker YouTube rabbit hole 😀. I feel the same way about Jeff Buckley as you do about Scott Walker. I bet I‘ve listened to his album Grace at least a thousand times. ❤️ 2mo
Bookwomble @Kimbono If you search You Tube for Scott ave Dusty, there's a duet of them from Dusty's TV show - audio only unfortunately, but it's a great song. I love Jeff Buckley, and has father, Tim, as well. It's tragic how young they both died. 2mo

Saturday morning reading soundtrack #readingsoundtrack

LiterRohde This is nothing like the description of the book, but the title reminds me of the one thing I hate about living in an apartment building. The smells mixing from all the apartments. Sauerkraut mixed with burnt cheese mixed with cat urine mixed with potpourri. 6mo
Kimbono @LiterRohde I remember that smell! My grandfather lived in a high rise apartment building in Philly with interior corridors. When we‘d visit him around dinner time...WHOA! 6mo

rretzler Too funny! J‘zargo also loves to wiggle around on his back, and loves to have his belly petted! But no rubbing his paws together, sadly. 😂 6mo
