The Beach Boys Plan Free Show In Denver On 9/11


Dear Song List:

One of the six greatest bands in all music, to me, will always be The Beach Boys.  Here are my three favorite ballads/torch songs by this incomparable musical act–who are still together, enjoying the lonely sea and writing beautiful, incomparable music.  Ah, those beautiful harmonies!

love : young beautiful couple in love


Without the notion, possibility or choice of forgiveness and a second chance, it’s not really possible for any kind of love or friendship to triumph and live forever.  Is there?

Patrick The Poet



It doesn’t matter if your heart is misunderstood
Or if the love you give others does not outlive them.
Though you have been cheated and betrayed and seen no good,
When someone begs for forgiveness–you should forgive them.

And it doesn’t matter if your heart feels misbegotten,
Or if the love you give others is years above them.
Though you have been lost and deserted and forgotten,
When someone prays and pleads to be loved–you should love them.
