' I've lost the power I had to distinguish between what to ignite and what to extinguish' – Rowland S. Howard

Shadows & Light – A Theme Time 45 Minutes or thereabouts

Have decided to include colours in the definition of ’light’, so here goes…

Will start with Bob Dylan’s favourite Lightfoot song…

1. Gordon Lightfoot ‘Shadows’:

Will follow it with another ‘Canadien Errant’:

2. Joni Mitchell, ‘Shadows and Light”:

3. Rory Gallagher, ‘Shadowplay’:

4. Joy Division, ‘Shadowplay”:

5. Rowland S. Howard, ‘Autoluminescent’:

6. REM, ‘Green grow the Rushes O”

7. Orange Juice, ‘Blue boy’:

8. Bob Dylan, ‘Its all over now, Baby Blue”:

9. Roy Orbison, ‘Blue Bayou”:

10. Eric Andersen, ‘Blue River”:

11. Michael Martin Murphey, ‘Red River Valley”:

12. Joe Heaney, ‘Roisin Dubh’:

133. Christy Moore, ‘Black is the Colour”:

14. The Pogues, ‘A Pair of Brown Eyes’:

15. Lal Waterson, ‘Red Wine Promises”:

16. Jimi Hendrix, “Purple Haze”:

‘On the Road…again’: a Theme-Time 30 minutes – Part 2

Of course, after finishing the first post, I began to think of a large number of other songs that included the word ‘road’ in the title.

Hopefully, these are some of the best of those

1. Jonathan Richman, “Roadrunner”

2. Ray Charles, ‘Hit the Road Jack”

3. Johnny Cash, ‘Wide Open Road”

4. Robert Earl Keen ‘The Road goes on forever’

5. Luke Kelly, ‘Raglan Road”:

6. Mary Gauthier, ‘Same Road”:

6. Eric Andersen, ‘Today is the Highway’:

7. Schubert, ‘Der Wegweiser (‘The Signpost’) Fischer-Dieskau/Billing:

8. June Tabor, ‘The Turn of the Road’:
