Willie and Lukas on a Monday-How funny time slips away

Happy Monday y'all!!
Hope everyone had a great weekend.  I 'll have to tell you tomorrow because i'm super busy today for work.  Time is flying by and i cant believe we're already in the second week of August.  Made me think of a song ' Funny How time slips away
Here is a song that Willie Nelson wrote back in the 70's. Its a classic and i love it!

His son Lukas did a cover of it recently and i really like it!!  I think he did his Father proud. Its very laid back and he was hanging out in a friends cabin. He even said apologies to real piano players. It was one of the first times to attempt the song.


Have a WILLIE nice day yall!!

  1. Hi, dear Holli! It starts with a great song. That's what I always say, and Willie's "Funny How Time Slips Away" is a great song. I never heard either of the Nelsons sing it and I enjoyed both of these clips. As a lover of Soul/R&B, my experience with the song, the record I have in my personal collection, is the bluesy million seller by R&B artist Joe Hinton, simply called "Funny." Sadly, Hinton's time slipped away far too soon and he died young at the age of 38.

    Have a wonderful Monday, dear friend Holli!

  2. When family members get together and sing, it's always a much better harmony (providing that they can carry a tune). Think about all the great "family" groups: The Jackson 5, The Osmonds, The Cowsills (probably before your time, ha ha), etc. They all had great harmonies and I love that.

    Stay cool, girlfriend. The weatherman just told me (via the tube) that you're gonna be a little warm. Have a great day, lady!

  5. I am a big fan of Willie's song writing, and his stylizing, but have never been a fan of his voice. I like the timber of Lucas' voice more! Not so tinny and whiney. (I know, it is blasphemous to say that in Texas!)

    1. That is blasphemy but I wont tell!! I love Willie. I love his voice and I've seen him in concert numerous times. I'm glad his son is pursuing his career in the music business because he's doing quite well.

  6. I love Willie! My son is in Austin right now. I told him he could bring me home a cowboy as a souvenir and he said there weren't cowboys in Austin just old hippies. So I said, "Bring me home Willie Nelson. I've always found him quite sexy in that hippie kind of way".
