Music Mondays, Ressurrected

Today we have a number from Ryan Shupe & the Rubber Band's latest album, Last Man Standing.  You can listen to the album version through the band's Jukebox at Shupe.net, or here's a live version I really love: 



(Hopefully you won't have the same buffering trouble I did today.   I think it's time to reinstall XP.)

This one always makes me misty-eyed, for not only am I a complete sucker for a good retrospectiv, and have been to a lot of the places and experienced a few of the things Ryan Shupe sings about, but I'm blessed enough to get to feel this way about a man who feels the same way about me.

All I Need

I’ve been to New York City Central Park 
Then headed out to upstate Lake Champlain 
Crossed up to Montreal and heard a band playing mandolins 
While we were standing in the rain
I’ve seen castle walls and waterfalls 
And bridges spanning over Venetian waterways
Backpack summer drifting through the mountains 
Filled with European hostel stays

but all I need is you, here, falling in my arms 
and me, there, subject to your charms 
and I don’t know if I have ever felt this way before 
all I need is you 

I’ve sailed out in the San Francisco Bay 
And I’ve seen fireworks light up the night 
I’ve eaten dinner with good friends 
Authentic Mexican patio dining in the moonlight 
I’ve spent days skiing sunny powdered peaks 
And hiking up to zions where the angels land 
I’ve dropped off cliffs into the crystal blue 
And I’ve set up tents on golden sand 

but all I need is you, here, falling in my arms 
and me, there, subject to your charms 
and I don’t know if I have ever felt this way before 
all I need is you 

I’ve been all over the rocky mountains 
Splashed in England’s Hyde Park fountains 
Seen Denali rising up at three A.M.
Watched the wind blow through the redwood forest 
Heard the tabernacle chorus 
Singing songs like angels do in heaven 

but all I need is you, here, falling in my arms 
and me, there, subject to your charms 
and I don’t know if I have ever felt this way before 
all I need is you

Thought you might enjoy knowing of a new LDS online radio station. www.yldsr.com stands for yourldsradio
Not quite as intuitive as kzion, but it was just launched today and seems to be promising. I need to get Jenni's music on there soon, if I can.
