IT'S A BEAUTIIFUL, SUNNY 85 DEGREES HERE IN LOUISVILLE, KY TODAY
Time to Party
For your listening pleasure today I found these wonderful videos of Tim Krekel. Tim's a music legend here in Louisville, Ky and in my house we play his cd's all the time.
From his My Space page:
I'd encourage everyone to check out his My Space page because he has some audio recordings of some more of his songs that you just gotta hear! And for politico's like me, you will especially appreciate his new song - Bailout blues.
And now ladies and gentleman, the music of TIM KREKEL
Unfortunately this final video doesn't have the video and soundtrack in sync so you don't want to watch the video but you will want to listen to the song because it's one of the most beautiful love songs I've ever heard. When we see Tim sing this live we get chills up and down our body. It's truly a beautiful song. I hope you enjoy it as much as we do. Incidently Tim has quite a few cd's out there that you can purchase if you like his music, like we do.
