Loving Life after 50

Come Sail Away, Come Sail Away, Come Sail Away with Me.

Feeling a tad bit nostalgic with the sad demise of so many icons in 2016. This weekend marked the departure of Canadian Teen Idol Bobby Curtola ( Fortune Teller) and of course Muhammad Ali on Friday

Its a sad year already and we are not even half way through, so Come Sail Away seemed a fitting tribute to reminiscing of by gone years and glory days. How many of you even know what I am talking about with “Come Sail Away”?

STYX,  American rock band formed in 1970 from Chicago that became famous for its albums released in the mid -1970s and early 1980s. They are best known for melding the style of pop rock and hard rock with the power of a hard-rock guitar, strong ballads and elements of international musical theater. (thanks Wikipedia)

Styx is best known for the hit songs “Lady” (#6, 1973), “Come Sail Away” (#8, 1977), “Babe” (#1, 1979), “The Best of Times” (#3, 1981), “Too Much Time on My Hands” (#9, 1981) and “Mr. Roboto” (#3, 1983). Other hits include “Show Me the Way” (#3, 1990), “Don’t Let It End” (#6, 1983), “Renegade” (#16, 1979) and “Boat on the River“, a big hit in much of Europe and Japan. 
Quite the  throwback in memory for sure and I have to confess I got to see them again in 2014 at the Ottawa Bluesfest and possibly I may now have an autographed album… 
So Come Sail Away just seemed so appropriate for today’s outfit don’t you think??
