Little Heaven

A quick post and then I’m off to bed. The song with which I awoke will also be the song that sends me to sleep. Toad the Wet Sprocket‘s “Little Heaven” with all it’s dulcet tones was the song in me noggin’ this morning. You have to love waking up to a band named after a Monty Python sketch. Hopefully, falling asleep to a band named after a Monty Python sketch will be equally peaceful.

The World Where You Live

For the first time, I was able to recognize three separate songs before full wakefulness. The first was a Bruce Springsteen song. I’m not a huge fan of Bruce so I’m not sure how he got in there. Maybe he impressed himself in my mind when he jammed his crotch into the camera during the Super Bowl half-time show.

I don’t know the name of the song but could find it if I took the time. I’m just glad it wasn’t accompanied by visions of his crotch-tacular acrobatics.

The second song was “The World Where You Live” by Crowded House. The video is below. Check out how young those guys are. I think the song is from way back in 1987. Weren’t they still Split Enz that far back? I guess not.

The last song was “Walk On the Ocean” by Toad the Wet Sprocket. Love that song. It makes me think of my buddy, Icehole, for some reason. We used to live together back in the early 1990s and I probably heard that song a great deal around the house.  I love that band.

I’m not posting them, though, as their song really only joined the chorus of voices in my head as I rose for the day. I don’t think it counts. What do you think?

Quick, of what does this song remind you?
