Bring It On Home to Me

“If you love something let it go free. If it doesn't come back,
you never had it. If it comes back, love it forever.”

- Douglas Horton
(27 July 1891 - 21 Aug 1968)

Dear Friends and Schoolmates,   

  I saw (or rather, heard) this song the other day on DirecTV's Channel 802 - Malt Shop Oldies and I thought I'd use today.

BONUS - - Bring It on Home to Me - Sam Cooke


"Bring It On Home to Me" is a 1962 soul song written and recorded by R&B singer-songwriter Sam Cooke. The song, about infidelity, was a hit for Cooke and has become a pop standard covered by numerous artists of different genres. It is one of The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame's 500 Songs that Shaped Rock and Roll. Cooke's recorded version has Lou Rawls singing responses as an uncredited background singer.

This song is considered by many historians of soul music to be the founding, or at least definitive soul song, as it provides the formula that is still popular today. Cooke's live version of this song that he performed in Miami, from the album Live at the Harlem Square Club, 1963, can be seen as his personal vision of what soul music should be, owing to the texture and emotion conveyed through his vocals that night, and that were probably standard in Cooke's near-nightly shows in primarily black clubs.

Teenage Driver

I decided to stop worrying about my teenage son's driving and take advantage of it.

I got one of those bumper stickers that say, "How's my driving?" and put a 900 number on it.
