Today’s Daily Tonality is brought to you by two days into the future.
This coming Thursday evening, I am going to see Alice Cooper in concert for the second time. Alice has been touring and releasing albums constantly since 1969. He is 74 years young. And he is not slowing down. It is amazing that he is still relevant and cool 53 years later. I am lucky enough to get to see this show with my longest serving friend, Josh. Shirley, Josh’s dear old Ma passed away in late 2021. She was a BIG Alice Cooper fan. This will be a special time, and I cannot wait. We both know that Shirley will be there and spirit. The Alice Cooper track I chose for this song of the day goes way back into his catalogue. From his 1973 album Billion Dollar Babies, here is Raped and Freezin’. Personally, I think it is one of his best.
All I’m saying is…if you don’t appreciate Alice Cooper, shame on you.
Every month or two, I create a new Spotify playlist. Quite frankly, Spotify is probably my favorite internet based music application. For ten bones a month, I get access to pretty much any song I want, at any time. So naturally, I like to create playlists. There is no real rhyme or reason to the songs that I add to my playlists, except they all have one thing in common. I like them. I suppose my mood has a lot to do with my monthly list of songs, perhaps the time of year as well. I would like to share with you this months tunes. Maybe you can find some inspiration, something you’ve never heard, or rediscover some greatness. You will notice I added an entire Alice Cooper album; Killers. This was no mistake. Great record by one of my favorites.
