I confess that once I get The Mowgli’s song San Francisco stuck in my head, it has a tendency to stay there absolutely all day long. I make no apologies for this, you see, because I’ve been in love with love, and the idea of something binding us together for a long, long time. Anytime I can get someone to transform that idea into a hook that will lodge inside my consciousness in a cheerfully seductive way, I’m all ears… plus songwriter Colin Dieden is from Kansas City, so there’s that.
I confess that I’ve listened to enough sad white guy music to last me for several lifetimes. So on this Monday morning I offer a link to this short video for your viewing pleasure, and to remind you that life is too short to spend it toiling away at your desk, or grumping at your people…
The Mowgli’s – San Francisco
I’ve been in love with love
And the idea of something binding us together
You know that love is strong enough
I’ve seen time tell tales about that systematic drug,
Yeah that heart that beats as one
It’s collectively unconsciously composed
I lost my head in San Francisco
Waiting for the fog to roll out
But I found it in a rain cloud
It was smiling down
Do you feel the love? I feel the love
C’mon c’mon, lets start it up!
Let it pour out of your soul
