Male artists is the theme for this week’s Music Moves Me Monday at XmasDolly.com.
I consider several male artists to be my favorites. John Lennon, David Bowie, Alice Cooper, Billy Joel, Elton John, David Byrne and Freddy Mercury are all at the top of my list. Each one is (or was) an extremely gifted song writer, recording artist and performer…loaded with talent and timeless appeal. At least in my mind.
But this week, I’m working with photos from last year’s family summer vacation and I struggled a little in my search for a fitting song by one of my favorite male artists. Many of John’s songs were either too angry/political or too deeply in love…not a good match for the mood of my pictures.
David Bowie’s and Alice Cooper’s songs weren’t fitting the bill and Billy Joel wasn’t hitting the mark either. When I stumbled on Paul Simon’s “Kodachrome” I knew I found my song.
I could easily include Paul in my list of favorite male talents and the song seems very fitting for my intentions.
