Day 2106: I’m Mad About You

Yesterday, when I was mad/angry/furious, I wrote a new song entitled “I’m Mad About You.”

I’m mad/crazy/nuts about jazz standards and I hope I have the mad/superior/unexpected skills to evoke that musical sound in my latest original tune.

Are you mad about my opening and ending lyrics?

I’m mad about you.

You make me feel blue.

You make me so angry.

And that isn’t new.



I’m wish I could disappear you.

Never hear or be near you.

Oy, oh boy, the joy to be rid of you.

Because I’m mad, not glad, not sad, just mad about you.

Are you mad about any of my many photos from yesterday, when my madly loved Michael and I visited the Adams National Historical Park and downtown Quincy, Massachusetts, USA?

If you were particularly mad about any of those smaller photos, please click to enlarge.

Did you notice any of the mad connections among those photos, like this one?


I’m mad about the music and singer of this jazz standard and I’m madly thinking about the lyrics.


I’m mad about my readers and hope to get some mad comments on this post.

Mad gratitude to all who helped me create today’s post and — of course! — to YOU.

  1. I think your lyrics fit right into the jazz world, Ann!

  2. The mad and irregular rhythms of jazz are perfect for a song about what makes you mad and reminds me of James Baldwin’s “Sonny’s Blues”, in which he says:
    “Freedom lurked around us and I understood, at last, that he could help us to be free if we would listen, that he would never be free until we did.”
    I’m listening to you.

  3. Today I’m trying to NOT be mad. 😉. Interesting how a post about mad brings me down from the heights of mad.

  4. I like your lyrics, we all feel mad about someone at times in our lives

  5. I don’t think you can disappear us
    Or ever really not be near us
    ‘Cause we’re mad about you
    (In a good way) too
    So don’t feel blue

    • I’m mad in a good way too
      About friends who are true blue
      And those always include you,
      So thanks for the things you do.

  6. Really good lyrics

  7. You MADe me laugh! °₊·ˈ∗(( ॣ>̶᷇ᗢ<̶᷆ ॣ))∗ˈ‧

  8. I would love to have the creative input to take a negative emotion and put it to song! I hope the “mad” doesn’t follow you into this new week, Ann. All of your photos hold interest, but the Pez Founding Fathers gave me a particular laugh! I wouldn’t be able to resist the purchase! I hope you have a very good, and “un-mad” week, my friend. 🙂
