Meaning of "Just LikeYesterday" #groovetramp #factoryfastrecords #lorijean #foundit

I apologize for not having this out earlier for the song that was released July 26th. I had it under lyrics and thought that I had lost it and felt I couldn't recreate this again. Here it is and I hope you enjoy it.

With familiarity of everything you’ve once known and believed in, it makes it so easy, especially when you’re looking back on 20 years or more, to look at love or a situation you once felt comfortable in as your haven of the past that still sits with you. Of course, you have to rationalize the fact that your realm of the past can be miles away from the thoughts of those or a situation you once knew.

But when reading or listening to music (reflecting back), we can’t help but to summon upon those special moments that were part of our growth and or growing that contributed to our life; they are ours by all means. Though the past can clash with thoughts to our realm of today, we need to keep them close to our hearts and minds and cherish what they have given to us rounded into our personalities.

The feelings that are so deep and instilled in us have become ours, and no one else’s.  Though they can never be taken away from us, they also can never be viewed the way we do-but we also have to realize that they are fully ours. We can connect at times with others on the same level to them, even in the same way. But what we feel inside is always ours.

I want to thank Leon Russell for being one of the greats that inspired and reached my soul in my mind to be able to create this song.

"Lady Blue"

Reasons for My Youthful Reactions #lorijean #herjourneytohermusic

I think I finally figured out why I would stand on my head when my mother had guests between the kitchen and living room in the doorway almost the entire time they were there, sit up in trees for hours, and repititiously as a toddler play the pink toy piano that we had in the house. I finally got to the point that I jumped up and down on my bed at bedtime with my ears covered singing as loud as I could. I GOT punished for that one.

I eventually had the pink piano taken away from me. :((( We couldn't afford  instrumental lessons, and I was discouraged or not allowed at school. I was feeling trapped from my gifts.

Coming up bottom of hour 2:30 pm PST 8/23 Another New Song "Pink Piano" for PossibleAirPlay #hamiltonradio #qstarradio

Wrote and composed this today with possible play Tuesday or Thursday, whichever day DJ Holseybrook, Songsmith, works at Music Motel on Hamilton and Q Star Radio this week from 1-5pm PST.


Pink Piano

Sound, sound, sound
Plunkety plunk, plunkety plunk
The same sound
Over and over again

There's no one else around
When you and me are near
What does this mean
My pink piano

My fingers touch
My mind disappears
To any human voice


What does all this mean
What is collecting
Means nothing to no one else
What does it mean to me


It's along the same lines as Ashes on My Cup. I wrote lyrics for 4 songs along the lines of Razzmatazz Club in Spain and Ned Euphorya these past few days. Two of them aren't composed.

Ashes on My Cup


Thinking about you now again
Feeling so lonely 
Wryly upon my bed so alone

You're leaving me wasted
Our love was so much more
I'm wryly wasted
Like ashes on my cup

I smell you, I hear you 
I know you've been here before
I can hear you breathing
I know you've been here before 


Possible fixtures, unknown ingredients
I may have been
To all its graces
From another room I'm barren to.


The groans I know
I have become accustomed to
the feel and smell upon you
I know someone's here
I know when someone's been upon you

In My Cup by Lori Finnila aka Lori Jean #dirt #ashes #sex #sad 😢

In My Cup
by Lori Finnila aka Lori Jean

In my cup
There it stood, alone
Black ashes, wryly smashed against the side
Possible fixtures and unknown ingredients 
It may have known
To its graces
From another room I'm barren from.

The groans I know, now my cup has become accustomed too.
You are no longer my cup, I feel.
I will dredge this wash, perhaps bring you closer to me again.
But still seeing what went on in my mind in the foreground may prolong this.
Tell me when it is safe again.

Catch me played by musician and DJ Dennis Holseybrook at the bottom of the hour. About 3:30 pm PST.

My Vision #NAPW #lorijean #conglomerate

NAPW just ignited me.

Ok. This is what I'm seeing:

Little Girls Song Doll, backpacks, sweatshirt, lunch boxes...

Pray for the Return of Nalani Capri Sorrell

I'm praying and asking for your assistance to help lawfully return this child to her grieving mother Andrea Melissa Combs. The child was unlawfully taken from her and of no known whereabouts after she was ordered to be returned home. Missing now for two years.

Last Nite #mintla #trip #mindblowing #lorijean

Last nite was a trip and mind blowing. I will remember forever. I gave it my all. My brain was so ready for it. The sound engineer was awesome! He picked Grandma Farinha which rocked the house. I was so grateful for my experience. 😘❤️
