This weeks "My Music Highway Project" Featured Blogger is the always inspiring Pia Savage of Courting Destiny...


1) What song has truly inspired/touched you? (Name of Artist and Song please)

Warren Zevon "Keep me in your heart" from "The Wind"---the whole album

Shadows are fallin'
and I'm runnin' out of breath
keep me in your heart for awhile

If I leave you
it doesn't mean I love you any less
keep me in your heart for a while
When you get up in the mornin'
and you see that crazy sun
keep me in your heart for awhile

There's a train leavin' nightly
called when all is said and done
keep me in your heart for awhile

Sha-la-la-la-la-la-la-la-la-la-la-la-lo
Keep me in your heart for awhile
Sha-la-la-la-la-la-la-la-la-la-la-la-lo
Keep me in your heart for awhile

Sometimes when you're doin'
simple things around the house
maybe you'll think of me and smile
you know I'm tied to you
like the buttons on your blouse
keep me in your heart for awhile

Hold me in your thoughts
take me to your dreams
touch me as I fall into view
and when the winter comes
keep the fires lit
and I'll be right next to you

Engine driver's headed north
to Pleasant Street
keep me in your heart for awhile
these wheels keep turnin
but they're runnin out of steam
keep me in your heart for awhile

Sha-la-la-la-la-la-la-la-la-la-la-la-lo
Keep me in your heart for awhile
Sha-la-la-la-la-la-la-la-la-la-la-la-lo
Keep me in your heart for awhile

Keep me in your heart for awhile...

2) How did it inspire/touch/ or change you?

He wrote it when he knew that he was dying. The whole album is about love and living each hour to the fullest. I had gotten bad blood tests and spent the year finding out that they were meaningless--always had perfect ones
before--but as I went from specialist to specialist I would listen to this CD and feel hope, for he knew that he was dying. "Keep me in your heart" is a plea to both be loved and to be remebered. It taught me to be as honest and raw as possible in my writing

3) What is one thing you wish for the future generations?

That they live a healthy and long life. The change in the enviornment is scaring me more than anything. Then of course peace in the world, tolerance, and caring for one another.

4) What is one "Project"/ "Charity" that is dear to your heart?

I can't believe that I'm saying this but anything dealing with the enviornment--because damn I want kids to live a long life--then we can get back to peace on earth. So Al Gore for president in 08!

If you think long and hard about it... music is a language that everyone speaks. Without divisions and barriers it brings us together as one. No matter what type of music you prefer... it is music. Wouldn't it be nice if we all could ride down the "Music Highway"... just to know that we, for one moment, could have a sense of togetherness?

WHY NOT have a "sense of togetherness"? It is so very true that music is a language EVERYONE speaks. This world has to much hate... So... Let us travel down a different highway... a highway of music... so we... for one moment can have a sense of peace... together. I started this project not knowing how well it would take off. Thanks to some wonderful bloggers... it has taken off beyond words. Click here for more info.
