The Sound of Returning to Yellowstone

Movie and TV soundtracks are a musical art form reliant on imaginative pressure points and successful through emotional connection. Somewhere between the macro and the micro of the sound is the sweet spot of where we find ourselves between the intricately placed notes of the composer.

A “Full House” is always the best.

Always!

Everywhere you look (everywhere)
There’s a heart (there’s a heart)
A hand to hold on to.
Everywhere you look (everywhere)
There’s a face of somebody who needs you

Now this is worthy of the top-shelf on Throwback Thursday!

Hangin’ Out, Down the Street (Again!)

Apparently, the kids who were always “hangin’ out, down the street” together arranged a piano number this past Tuesday night at a quintessential LA pad to reminisce about those days from about a decade ago in real time and more than 30-40 years ago in sitcom time.

Clearly, the basement was just being renovated or something.

A reunion was groovy enough, but “the gang” decided to take it a few notes further…

The still photo above is evidence, as reported by a few of the former Point Place troublemakers, of a “That ’70s Show” sing-along to, you know…
