If you’re just joining the party now, let me update you briefly. We’re celebrating the re-launch of Living by Ear, a novel about music, Boston, family, divorce, and love. Yesterday’s post gives more information about the story, so I’ll cut to the chase today.
If you’d like to be entered in a drawing to win either a Kindle or paperback copy of Living by Ear, post a YouTube video of a song you like in the comments section below. And if that isn’t working for you, it’s fine just to post the name of the song and the artist. The party will run until Friday, September 19, at 6:00 PM, so you can post any time before then. I’ll also be posting videos referenced in the book on Twitter all week long. If you’d like to listen in, my Twitter handle is @maryjrowen
Yesterday was mellow and bluesy, so today let’s get it rocking just a little more with the Rolling Stones classic “Sweet Virginia.” This is one of my favorite songs from my favorite Stones Album, Exile on Main Street. In Living by Ear, it’s one of the songs Chris and her ex-boyfriend Curt used to play on the streets of Boston. I won’t say any more about that, so as not to give away any plot spoilers. But here’s the video. I hope you enjoy it. I don’t know how anyone could say that Mick’s not at the top of his game here, but I welcome all comments and opinions.
OK! Please post your favorite videos below. And remember, if posting a video doesn’t work, just post the name of the artist and their song. That’ll enroll you in the drawing!
Thanks so much! Again, I’m really looking forward to hearing some good music today!
I don’t know how to post videos, but Jason Mraz’s Come Back Home has been running through my head today. Beautiful song…
Thank you, Claudia! I think this is the song you’re referring to. What a lovely message! Thanks for sharing! You are now in the contest!
This is a suggestion from Sharon Anderson. It’s Lorde’s “Tennis Court” –another great one from that amazing new talent.
