Good choice of music there!
Joy,excellent choice of songs. A welcomed respite to the poetry, making the rounds!Hank
Nina needs to quit screwing around with the keys and her isometrics and just start the song already! I have a short attention span. ;-) Rita Coolidge does a nice version of that song, very southern and smooth. It's on her first album, when she was closer to Mad Dogs & Englishmen than to her later easy listening stuff.I loved that early Steely Dan stuff. I still have Countdown To Ecstasy, which I bought (again) on cd. I saw them, when they were still a band and not just Fagen and Becker. They did a really nice version of "Show Biz Kids" that night and everybody went nuts.I almost posted "The Ballad of The Sad Young Men" from "Moon For The Misbegotten" and sung by Roberta Flack, last night, but I decided against it. God what a pair! Like the button on my jean jacket says, we really need to Cheer The Fuck Up. :-)
awww...put a smile on that face hedge, no time for the blues...all hallows is right around the corner and there are kids to scare, i mean give treats to....smiles....i like me some steely dan...and not i am wondering how they fit all those words on shays button...
Ohh Nina. She almost makes ya feel better giving voice to the blues. I hope you can shake the monster out, take him for a walk and kick him into the woods! Then he can populate your All Hallows poetry. Please.
Nina Simone hypnotizes me every damn time.
Thanks all. Glad you enjoyed.@FB: Yeah, I need that scrolling as a screensaver. ;-) I like both forms of Steely Dan, though it took me awhile to get used to the more pop/jazz focused one. That second song has some great lines:Well I should know by nowThat it's just a spasmLike a Sunday in T.J.That it's cheap but it's not freeThat I'm not what I used to beAnd that love's not a game for three and the last song i like not just for the lyrics, but because the rapsta dude Everlast looks just like my old Canuck flame--you could stand em next to each other and not tell them apart.@Brian & Ruth--That's true, halloween is coming and monsters will be all over the place, not just in my head.And I've already broken into the halloween candy and gotten a stiff reprimand from the spouse(who wants it for himself) thanks for cheering me up.
