The music in a Bent mind

The music that plays in your head from day to day can be an interesting mix. Sometimes it stays on topic, sometimes it's all over the place. I'm doing this thread as much for my own benefit as I am to maybe introduce some of you to music you may have forgotten or were never aware of. My taste vary widely; mellow to turn it up til your ears bleed.

Unless noted otherwise I'm going to stick to my album collection for as long as possible/tolerable.
I'll add one or two songs on a regular basis, Comments and observations are welcome. I do ask that you please leave the music to me.

Some tracks I may give some insight into why the song was in my head; sometimes I won't have a clue why it was there. Sit back and follow along with the travels of a Bent brain; which was a nick name growing up for some reason.


Collective Soul - "Under Heaven's Skies"
For some odd reason over the past week my mind keeps wandering back in time.

Box of Frogs - "Just a Boy Again"
Sometimes its just chill.

Concrete Blonde - "Why Don't You See Me?"
Still chilling.

Given the title I was worried about where this thread could go...expected Total Coelo or some such thing...but it is nowhere near that bent.

Mostly mellow from my persective.

I can dig it.

Yeah, kind of been just a little spun lately; mellow kind of helps with the Energizer Bunny syndrome.

Some days, though, it's all about a particular album.

But nowhere in my mind's travels, I still don't eat cannibals.

I thought this’d be similar to the David Bromberg version. Nope. Very wrong.

Quite different. Thus far, and for the foreseeable future I'm sticking to my CD and LP collection. The YouTube version may show some of the tracks are from "Best of" albums, I tend to avoid; I end up missing out on too many great tunes.
