I am planning on posting a Friday playlist tomorrow but had to do a little preview after hearing “Mona Lisas and Mad Hatters” this morning.
For some reason it really stuck a chord. I love this song. And I missed it. It reminds me of Almost Famous which makes me happy. I sang along right in front of my students as they wrote, and they didn’t mind. The really cool ones Some of them even sang along,too.
I wish one of the Idol’s would’ve sang this song on Elton John night, though I loved Paul’s “Rocket Man,” and Casey’s “Your Song.” Hailey’s “Bennie and the Jetts” was my favorite! I love when she gets all Janis-y.
Here is the video for “Mona Lisas..”
and a few of my favorite lines…
…And I thank the Lord there’s people out there like you I thank the Lord there’s people out there like you
While Mona Lisas and Mad Hatters Sons of bankers, sons of lawyers Turn around and say good morning to the night For unless they see the sky But they can’t and that is why They know not if it’s dark outside or light
