Ruby Tuesday

What is playing on my Virtual Victrola this October Tuesday evening? Ruby Tuesday, of course. It is my song for you. This version by Italian music genius, Franco Battiato, is my absolute favorite. Plus, I love all music by Franco Battiato. The soft melodic tones in his Ruby Tuesday version are beautiful. I love the angelic voice of the opera-style singer in the background who blends so well with Battiato's voice. When I first heard this version of Ruby Tuesday, it was also the first time I had ever paid attention to the lyrics and their meaning. I had heard it a million times by the Rolling Stones. But, Battiato's version made me actually stop and listen. It is the perfect song to have on my Virtual Victrola this evening as I pause at the end of a busy day to say, "Goodbye, Ruby Tuesday." Well, it is after midnight now and officially the start of Wednesday. Some of my best thinking is done after midnight. Good night. Click HERE and enjoy my song for you.

Sealed with a Kiss, Kirsten
