Theme Thursday - Breakfast

My usual breakfast - oatmeal, toasted bagel, and tea.



And now for the breakfast music! I've never heard of the band Deep Blue Something, and I never heard their song "Breakfast at Tiffany's", but when I fed "breakfast" into YouTube's search engine this was at the top of the list. I like!

Near the top of that list was another song by another artist I've never heard of, "Banana Pancakes" by Jack Johnson, and I'm liking this one a lot, too. Actually, this song has me thinking I may need to look up more stuff by Jack Johnson.

And last but certainly not least, I decided to add a little cultural uplift to the proceedings. Since coffee seems to be a major element in breakfast, I went and found J.S. Bach's paean to coffee, Schweigt stille, plaudert nicht (Be quiet, stop chattering), BWV 211, aka "The Coffee Cantata". What I've posted is movement #3, the aria Ei! Wie schmeckt der Kaffee süße (Ah! How sweet the coffee tastes). Enjoy!

  1. Nice post Roy. Other people's breakfasts always look far more appetizing than mine.

  3. Man, that bagel looks good. I should have known it would be a mistake to start reading the TT posts before I actually had my breakfast...

  5. The photography is poster worthy! Love it! I can imagine it up in my kitchen (if I had a wall to spare) tantalizing me to eat. Love the music videos too.

  7. Aha a sneak peak into your pantry. Not a great lover of porridge but the tea looks good. Jack Johnson is very popular out here.Soft Sunday, beachy music, definitely worth a listen.
