Since one of my all-time favorite bands, WEEZER, recently released their new cover songs album (the TEAL ALBUM), I’ve been loving their rendition of ELO‘s famous song “Mr. Blue Sky“. I’ve kind of been listening to the entire TEAL ALBUM on repeat for the past couple of days now, & after listening to their track “Mr. Blue Sky” (which has quickly become one of my favorite tracks on the new album), it prompted me to listen to the original song as well. Then after that, I was inspired to watch a clip of this song being performed at the 2012 London Summer Olympics.

I also looked up the lyrics to this song & sought out the meaning behind band member Jeff Lynne writing this song. He originally wrote this song while hiding himself away at a Swiss ski lodge for 2 weeks. The weather was rather gloomy & uninspiring during his stay, but then one day of his stay, the skies opened up to beautiful blue skies & sunshine. That inspired Jeff Lynne to write this exact song (as well as the other songs on the band’s album “Out of The Blue”).

This particular song has been really lifting my mood lately, & I just wanted to share this with everyone. So, please enjoy this song along with me.

I’m a pretty ecclectic person when it comes to music.  I listen to almost all genres of music, including: Pop music in various languages, Alternative-Rock, Top 40 Urban, Punk, Ska, Classic 1950s-60s Pop & Motown music, Techno/Dance, etc.  Recently, I’ve really gotten interested in Jazz music.  Well, I mean…it’s mostly Bossa Nova, Soft Jazz, Brazilian Jazz & some Verve Jazz.  I’m not really familiar with Rythm & Blues, or the Bluegrass stuff.  I just mostly listen to the tropical/Latin type of Jazz music…with songs like “The Waters of March” & “Corcovado.

I’ve heard of Jazz music since I was a kid, but I never really knew anything about it until probably 2-3 years ago.  I first kick-started my interest in Jazz music when a friend of mine mentioned that his favorite ‘crusing’ song was “The Girl From Ipanema“.  I had never heard of that song before, so I decided to look it up on the Internet.  Little did I know, that this would be the song that threw me right into the deep end of the Jazz genre.  I was instantly hooked the moment I heard that song.

Now, I still don’t know a hill of beans about Jazz music… Some would still say I’m a “noob” (in Internet lingo), but I am excited to share this with everyone.  It certainly broadened my musical tastebuds.  These are some of the Jazz-type artists that I know of & like.  I have included links, so you can sample their songs.

I hope you enjoy this music as much as I do!  Curl up with a nice hot cup of coffee & gaze longingly out the misty-faced window on this brisk Autumn evening…
