And you may find yourself living in a shotgun shack
And you may find yourself in another part of the world
And you may find yourself behind the wheel of a large automobile
And you may find yourself in a beautiful house, with a beautiful wife
And you may ask yourself
Well...How did I get here?

Letting the days go by
Let the water hold me down
Letting the days go by
Water flowing underground
Into the blue again
After the money's gone
Once in a lifetime
Water flowing underground

And you may ask yourself
How do I work this?
And you may ask yourself
Where is that large automobile?
And you may tell yourself
This is not my beautiful house
And you may tell yourself
This is not my beautiful wife

Letting the days go by
Let the water hold me down
Letting the days go by
Water flowing underground
Into the blue again
After the money's gone
Once in a lifetime
Water flowing underground

Same as it ever was...
Same as it ever was...
Same as it ever was...
Same as it ever was...
Same as it ever was...
Same as it ever was...
Same as it ever was...
Same as it ever was...

Water dissolving...and water removing
There is water at the bottom of the ocean
Under the water, carry the water at the bottom of the ocean
Remove the water at the bottom of the ocean

Letting the days go by
Let the water hold me down
Letting the days go by
Water flowing underground
Into the blue again
Into the silent water
Under the rocks and stones
There is water underground

Letting the days go by
Let the water hold me down
Letting the days go by
Water flowing underground
Into the blue again
After the money's gone
Once in a lifetime
Water flowing underground

And you may ask yourself
What is that beautiful house?
And you may ask yourself
Where does that highway go to?
And you may ask yourself
Am I right?...Am I wrong?
And you may say to yourself
My God!...What have I done?!

Letting the days go by
Let the water hold me down
Letting the days go by
Water flowing underground
Into the blue again
Into the silent water
Under the rocks and stones
There is water underground

Letting the days go by
Let the water hold me down
Letting the days go by
Water flowing underground
Into the blue again
After the money's gone
Once in a lifetime
Water flowing underground

Same as it ever was...
Same as it ever was...
Same as it ever was...
Look where my hand was
Time isn't holding up
Time is an asterisk
Same as it ever was...
Same as it ever was...
Same as it ever was...
Same as it ever was...
Same as it ever was...
Same as it ever was...
Same as it ever was...
Yeah, the twister comes
Here comes the twister
Same as it ever was...

FNS: The Best Music Videos, Ever

Guns N' Roses - "November Rain"

The show tonight pays tribute to some of the greatest music videos ever created. The only rule is that the song has to have a great video illustrating it. This is about the combination of great music + great images. Any era, any genre. Requests taken all night long.

Strings, weddings, funerals and nightmares, oh my! It takes a powerhouse rock band to pull off an epic, nine-minute long video complete with a cryptic, dramatic storyline involving the lead singer at his wedding/funeral -- or is he dreaming? Axl Rose pounds the piano after emoting his way through the clip as Slash shreds and an orchestra vamps and you know you've just seen Guns 'N Roses doing its bombastic best. [Billboard]

When I look into your eyes
I can see a love restrained
But darlin' when I hold you
Don't you know I feel the same
Nothin' lasts forever
And we both know hearts can change
And it's hard to hold a candle
In the cold November rain

Jamiroquai - "Virtual Insanity"

The show tonight pays tribute to some of the greatest music videos ever created. The only rule is that the song has to have a great video illustrating it. This is about the combination of great music + great images. Any era, any genre. Requests taken all night long.

Full disclosure: This writer once made a documentary series about music-video directors, during which Jonathan Glazer said if he had a pound for every time he’d been asked how he did “Virtual Insanity,” he’d be able to retire. The short answer is that the walls move, not the floor.

Yet with all the visual trickery in the world, the video simply wouldn’t work without lead singer Jay Kay’s effortless dancing (which he cleverly tried to re-create at that year’s MTV Music Video Awards). It’s that combination of human creativity (on the parts of both Kay and Glazer) and technical flourishes that still make “Virtual Insanity” so compelling to watch.

Oh yeah, what we're living in (let me tell ya)
It's a wonder man can eat at all
When things are big that should be small
Who can tell what magic spells we'll be doing for us
And I'm giving all my love to this world
Only to be told
I can't see
I can't breathe
No more will we be
And nothing's going to change the way we live

Duran Duran - "Girls On Film"

Look, no matter how you look at it, Duran Duran were masters of the video format, and you really could almost choose any video. They knew their audience, they knew how to appeal to MTV, and they owned the video-waves, and the airwaves, back in the day. They were making videos during the Golden Era of video filmmaking.

Hozier - "Take Me To Church"

+Sean Cowen​, I was completely floored by it the first time I watched it. I had absolutely no idea what the song and the video were about. It made me cry.

But it was powerful.

The Smiths - "Stop Me If You Think You've Heard This One Before"

The show tonight pays tribute to some of the greatest music videos ever created. The only rule is that the song has to have a great video illustrating it. This is about the combination of great music + great images. Any era, any genre. Requests taken all night long.

This is basically a three-and-a-half-minute guide on how to be a Morrissey fan. You get all the major pieces of Smiths-era iconography (Strangeways, Oscar Wilde), plus a primer on the proper choice of glasses, blazers, bicycles, denim jackets, and haircuts. Will prove strangely exotic to American fans who've only previously heard of "Whalley Range" in the song "Miserable Lie". Plus it pairs with the video for "Tomorrow" as a demonstration of the man's uncanny power to turn other people into Morrissettes. [Nitsuh Abebe/Pitchfork]

Britney Spears - "Toxic"

The show tonight pays tribute to some of the greatest music videos ever created. The only rule is that the song has to have a great video illustrating it. This is about the combination of great music + great images. Any era, any genre. Requests taken all night long.

While i wouldn't normally play a Briteny song here, this video was completely cool and ear-catching with the music and it will stand the test of time, imho.

In 2004's Joseph Kahn-directed "Toxic" video, Britney Spears proved that she comes in every flavor: futuristic stewardess, fiery "Alias"-esque agent, and brunette super-heroine. But the one role that stays constant through the dance-heavy clip: Sultry maneater. [_Billboard-]

The Postal Service - "We Will Become Silhouettes"

Good morning, and in case I don't see ya, good afternoon, good evening, and good night! Thanks for the flood of comments tonight. You all lift me up. Danke schön!

Scenes of post-apocalyptic domestic bliss and loving close-ups of 1980s appliances can't distract from the fact that Ben Gibbard makes the best frumpy suburban Dad since Chevy Chase-- the way he hands the cookie to his kid halfway through is like a 1985 Father of the Year poster. If only the video ended with him punching a moose and taking John Candy hostage. [Rob Mitchum/Pitchfork]

I've got a cupboard with cans of food, filtered water,
And pictures of you and I'm not coming out
Until this is all over
And I'm looking through the glass where the light bends
At the cracks
And I'm screaming at the top of my lungs pretending
The echoes belong to someone
Someone I used to know

Blind Melon - "No Rain"

How could we ever forget this video? It speaks to us on so many levels, and it has the shadow of rock n' roll lore attached to it.

Where Every Night Is Friday Night. Best Music Videos of the 80s to Today's Great Songs. 80s Friday Night show starts at ...10PM New York | 7PM Los Angeles | 3AM London
Introduction
Welcome to FRIDAY NIGHT SESSIONS - Where Every Night Is Friday Night. Since October 2011.

Over 3 years ago, I got a wild idea in my head to regularly post fun 80s videos every Friday night. I started to call my regular gig - Friday Night Sessions. It has been a lot of fun taking requests on all sorts of dance videos, top-40, pop, pop-rock and more. I realized (though a friend) that maybe we could do this a bit better via a PAGE. This is that page, and I've initially asked six friends to co-manage this page with me (all are interested in being a guest DJ whenever possible).

We've kicked the idea around a bit of having Theme Nights, and I like that a lot. So, look on this page for all announcements about #fridaynightsessions and we're glad you're here!

We're adding new shows to the schedule in 2015 and hopefully there will be other exciting changes to announce. Stay tuned!

-Sean Cowen, Founder of FNS

Our Page Managers In No Particular Order:


Ross Fergus ...         Andrew Coffman ...  Yonatan Zunger


Matt Tuomala ...       Johnny Zed ...            Samuel Vain


>>>>>>>>>>  We've just added a PUBLIC CALENDAR for FRIDAY NIGHT SESSIONS here:
_________________________


Ryan Van Sickle

Ryan is thinking about hosting an American Folk Roots Songbook night or something like night.  Old folk/blues to modern folk folk/rock.

Writing songs of character and integrity that resound the timeless and universal, Ryan Van Sickle uniquely translates the themes of love, war, life and death and the epic and mundane struggles within.  Following in the steps of the masters from his native Canada, Ryan draws on the influences of Neil Young, Daniel Lanois, and Leonard Cohen alongside American greats Bruce Springsteen and Emmylou Harris.  With the release of his latest album Ghosts Of The Brokenhearted on iTunes - http://goo.gl/9VZ00 , and on Google Music - http://goo.gl/89RIf, Ryan emerges as a powerful singer songwriter; asserting prowess in building a lyrical highway with a strong voice to carry his listeners on the journey. View his website at ryanvansicklemusic.com

Roger R. H. King
Roger genuinely loves many genres of music as long as it is, as he says, "Worth crankin' up!" Raised on the the sounds of Motown, "Classic" rock, Classical music, R&B, and jazz, he's played drums and sung in numerous unknown bands ranging from blues to country, and jazz to rock.  As a symphonic percussionist, he's also played with many orchestras and other musical productions. A music major in college, he's also been a "personality" on Classic Rock radio, as well as a party DJ in the Springfield area.  Roger's submissions to our page will show off his broad range of tastes and diversity, as he also attempts to educate our audience with facts, stories, and insights about the artists and music.

"I am really looking forward to getting to personally, and musically, know all of you as we head off on this G+ musical journey. Peace, Love, and Crank It!" - RRHK
 
Branden Haize 

Branden Haize first joined Friday Night Sessions as a volunteer "music historian", supplying facts and trivia to videos posted during the Friday night time slot. Soon, he became an official page manager himself, and the host of his own show, Lost in the Haize. When does it air? It's a spontaneous thing, whenever the mood strikes him (and whenever the forum isn't being used by someone else). Branden is also the author of "Darwin's Playground" and "The Prospector", two independent web-series available to read at BrandenHaize.com.

M

no set time
no set theme
M is here to blow off steam
M may or may not do requests 
M basks in the +1s and shares (this helps if you want a request)

Andrew Coffman

Andrew is a long time listener of FNS  and has an abiding interest in remixed songs, as evidenced by his own page +All Remixed Up , but his tastes run the gamut of the entire musical spectrum.

While Andrew may not play any instrument beyond the radio or been involved in the music industry, he has been on 5 of the 7 continents, helped build bridges, dams and refineries where no human has business being at and flown enough miles to make it to the moon and back.

Look for him to roll out the eclectic, the remixed and great tunes you forgot you loved in the wee morning hours of West Coast and get ready to whet your whistle for a midnight snack that's tasty and exotic.


Sarah Lynne aka Metalynne

Metalynne or Sarah Lynne, labels herself as a tried and true metalhead. She listens to all sub-genres of metal from heavy metal to metalcore, anything she can bang her head to. Metalynne has a show here on FNS called Subdural Hematoma. Her show is dedicated to all things metal music related. She has been known to bring the studio to flames and we have even had to call security a few times because of her antics.

Look out for her every Sunday night to bring you the most face melting metal show she can. And as Metalynne likes to say, "Horns up! \m/"


Samuel 'Zenman' Vain

Samuel ‘Zenman” Vain was born and grew up in California, he’s a Metalhead to the core that evolved into it. His childhood in the 70’s and teens in the 80’s allowed him to witness the evolution of Rock & Roll into Hard Rock and then Metal. He’s a bit on the crazy side being an accomplished artist so you can never tell what video he might post.

As a youngster he loved the Beatles, Jimmi Hendrix, Kansas, Foreigner, and Black Sabbath in addition to many more. As much fun as they were he needed more guitar and drums as he grew. Suddenly there was Van Halen, Scorpions, Iron Maiden, Stormtroopers of Death, Alice Cooper, and this tape he was given in Los Angeles by a guy in a band that he wore out but never could remember the band name. Hearing ‘Hit the lights’ for the first time in 3 years solved that mystery, and the search for more music like that was on. When Slayer came it was like seeing a divinity!

Now that there are bands that can cause aneurisms there is blood all over his walls when it suits him but there is a chill and romantic side to watch, they pop in randomly. He can be sweet, dark, funny, and very serious, but it’s the eccentric parts that make his mind fun.
