Goodnight Moon's MUSIC Linkup, week 12 "Red, Red Wine"

AMAZING that its already 12 weeks int to this cool linkup!  I haven't missed one yet.

If you want to join in, be sure to visit GOODNIGHT MOON and link up!

My song this week (surprise surprise) is from the least THIS version of it,  by UB40.  Did you know it was actually first written and released by Neil Diamond in 1967????  Then someone else remade it as a Reggae song in 1969, and UB40 did a cover version of THAT song in 1983.  Some say that even UB40 did not know at the time that they were covering a Neil Diamond song.  Crazy, right?  HA HA AH

Anyway, I have enjoyed a lot of "wine tasting" days over the past few weeks, between Easter, my Birthday, and Mothers Day.  That's what happens when you live in wine country.  I also have made a point to enjoy "wine o' clock" several nights a week after the kids are in bed.  However, I tend to enjoy the sweet white wines, like a Reisling or a Moscato, not the RED wine the band is singing about. (mostly because I like my wine chilled, and reds are normally served at room temperature).  The most red my wine usually gets is a Rose, and that's rare for me.

Without boring you further, please enjoy UB40's RED RED WINE:

It's not quite 7 AM where I am, and writing this post makes me kinda want a glass of wine NOW....does this make me a "wine-o"?
