Your Love Keeps Lifting Me Higher

I’ve heard many versions of this next song while growing up. I know it’s a tune from the sixties, sung by Jackie Wilson and later recorded by Rita Coolidge in the 70’s. But I forgotten about this great version by Michael McDonald. This came on iHeart Radio this morning and immediately I felt a smile come across my face and I found myself dancing and singing along! The happiness is the beat and lyrics are contagious!  When you first hear Michael’s rich throaty vocals – he is easily recognizable as the “voice” of the Doobie Brothers in the 70’s.  Great voice – great memories – fun song!  What song gives you a feeling of dance and makes you want to sing along?

Here’s to putting a dance in your step and a smile on your face today  🙂


Enjoy and God Bless


Long Train Running (Without Love)

I heard this on my car radio yesterday.  I have it tuned to one of a couple of stations devoted to the “oldies” or “hits of all time” – I can’t remember which.  Anyway, this song came on and I remember loving it – and all the Doobie Brothers songs of the 70’s.  You will be seeing a lot more of these as I hear them.  These are the sounds of my youth – and in some ways I do miss these groups – even though I do like a lot of the music of today.  But there in nothing like what reminds me of “back in the day”.   With this song I’m driving down the road and I’m about 16.  Sweet memories.

Enjoy and God Bless

Down around the corner, half a mile from here
See those long trains running, and you watch them disappear
Without love, where would you be now
Without love

You know I saw Miss Lucy down along the tracks
She lost her home and her family and she won’t be coming back
Without love, where would you be right now
Without love

Well there’s the Illinois Central
And the Southern Central freight
You got to keep on pushing mama
I know they’re running late
Without love, where would you be now na na now
Without love

Well there’s the Illinois Central
And the Southern Central freight
You got to keep on pushing mama
You know they’re running late
Without love, where would you be now
Without love

Well distance keep on turning
and the wheels go round and round
and the steel reels are cooling hard
and the mountain ain’t going down
Without love, where would you be right now
Where would you be now

Mmm..ooh you got to get the baby thing
I want to move it down
I want to move it down
Baby baby baby babe oh won’t you move it down
There’s a big train running
With the train I’m moving on
I got to keep on moving, keep on moving
