Music Monday, On Tuesday, Changes in Attitudes

 I heard this song this past weekend and like an insidious ear worm it’s playing in a continuous loop in my head.  But, it’s really got me thinking about attitude.  My favorite part isn’t the chorus but this…in the campo.

Oh yesterday’s over my shoulder
So I can’t look back for too long
there’s just too much to see waiting in front of me
And I know that I just can’t go wrong.

And you?  What’s your favorite section?

Changes in Latitudes, Changes in Attitudes

I took off for a weekend last month
Just to try and recall the whole year
All of the faces and all of the places
Wonderin’ where they all disappeared
I didn’t ponder the question too long
I was hungry and went out for a bite
Ran into a chum with a bottle of rum
And we wound up drinkin all night

Chorus:
It’s these changes in latitudes, changes in attitudes
Nothing remains quite the same
With all of our running and all of our cunning
If we couldn’t laugh we would all go insane

Reading departure signs in some big airport
Reminds me of the places I’ve been
Visions of good times that brought so much pleasure
Makes me want to go back again
If it suddenly ended tomorrow
I could somehow adjust to the fall
Good times and riches and son of a bitches
I’ve seen more than I can recall

Chorus:
These changes in latitudes, changes in attitudes
Nothing remains quite the same
Through all of the islands and all of the highlands
If we couldn’t laugh we would all go insane

I think about Paris when I’m high on red wine
I wish I could jump on a plane
So many nights I just dream of the ocean
God I wish I was sailin’ again
Oh, yesterday’s over my shoulder
So I can’t look back for too long
There’s just too much to see waiting in front of me
And I know that I just can’t go wrong

Chorus:
With these changes in latitudes, changes in attitudes
Nothing remains quite the same
With all of my running and all of my cunning
If I couldn’t laugh I just would go insane
If we couldn’t laugh we just would go insane
If we weren’t all crazy we would go insane

  1. Great song. Our sailing theme song of his is One Particular Harbour. Played it at every new anchorage we arrived at.

    He’s right we would be insane without laughter. Thanks for posting this, we went on a little JB YouTube tour playing a few of our favorites. Hard to believe he’ll be 70 this year.

      Happy to oblige. I’ve got Thursday’s video planned with the two of you in mind. Watch for it!

    One of the best concert ever was Jimmy at the Mountain View, California Amphitheatre. The cloud was so thick and low that all you had to do was inhale.

  4. Yea…. we could smell that all the way to San Francisco!

I'd love to hear from you!
