My music playlist for today (June 1, 2012 edition)

My lovely wife and I did our usual bit of after-sundown Saturday night dancing over in her music teaching studio last weekend, and although I had other things going through my mind at the time that kind of dampened my enthusiasm a bit, it was still fun.

What helped to make it fun was the music we were dancing to.  We were dancing to some of the best of Ray Charles.

With most of the tunes I played that night, I preferred the ones where I could just grab on to my lady, hold her tight with her head either close to my cheek or resting on my chest (there is a somewhat serious height difference between us), and sway to the music, even on a tune that prompts you to move a bit more — like “I Got A Woman.”  I needed the closeness more than anything.  It was comforting.

And then we had to close it out with “What’d I Say.”  That got me moving a bit more.  As for my lady, she was dancin’ up a storm, enjoying herself — just the way I like to see her, with a smile on her face.

She and Ray gave me all that I needed to lift my spirits a bit that night.

About A View From The Middle (Class)

Hi, my name's John. I've thought about this blogging stuff for a number of years now. I got into it for real on November 10, 2011, after suddenly losing my job in late October. I've been blogging ever since, and I kept it up over a period of a year and four months of being unemployed or under-employed, to try and paint a picture of what being jobless with a family to support can be like. Finally, on February 28, 2013, I got a better job that puts us back into the "middle class." I won't stop blogging, though. Who knows, maybe I can actually turn this blogging stuff into a way to earn a living someday! If you go to my blog at http://viewfrommiddleclass.wordpress.com/ and click on my About page, it'll tell you a lot about me -- maybe more than you ever wanted to know. I'm just your average, laid-back guy who's GOING TO MAKE IT IN THIS WORLD, despite all the roadblocks thrown in the way. I also launched a "niche" blog on music at http://thecrossovermusicchannel.blogspot.com/ that I'm very excited about because of the popularity of music playlist articles here. Also, check out and "Like" this blog's Facebook page at https://www.facebook.com/daddysangbassdude2 for instant updates. Look forward to seeing y'all around!
