Party Time

Here’s an original song that is another collaboration with JYP. Besides being Music Monday, I thought our song would go well with celebrating the conjunction of Saturn and Mars. JYP wrote the lyrics inspired by a party. I wrote the music, played, and recorded the song. Since I haven’t been to a party in years, I had to borrow party footage for the video.

I went out at 5:30 this morning and photographed the pre-dawn sky partying over the conjunction of Saturn and Mars. A thin cloud cover softened Venus, Saturn, and Mars. However, you can almost see the rings of Saturn in the last shot done with the Bazooka. I’m hoping for a clear sky tomorrow morning to try and get a photo with better-defined rings of Saturn.

Wide and normal shots with the conjunction. The third photo is of the Big Dipper.

God Bless Those Who Bring The Party
By JYP

Blessed are those who bring on the party
Blessed are those who bring on the party
Blessed are those who bring on the party
Blessed are those who bring on the party

You can’t have spiritual without the spirits
What’s the harm? Why you fear it
Turn up the volume so we can hear it
Yes! Your heart and soul can bear it
God bless those who bring on the party

Good times are we’re romancin’
Or we may not get the chance in
May as well start a dancin’
Up and down yeah now we’re prancin’
God bless those who bring on the party

While the world may be sleepin’
There are those who keep the beat in
Keep us all from wailin’ and weepin’
On the floor we’re a creepin’
God bless those who bring on the party

Time to share some gratitude
For the one who keeps us in the mood
Bring the music, wine and food
We got it down we’re feeling good
God bless those who bring on the party

They pick us up from devastation
Set the stage for celebration
Then we feel exhilaration
They’ve have filled our expectations
God bless those who bring on the party
