Now I'm going to have to go listen to a couple of those tunes.

And I still want to be adopted by you and Miz Bubs because y'all are just so damn cool.

You have a nicely diverse family of playlists. And well represented.

Dr. Monkey Von Monkerstein said...

Wow, "I'll wear it Proudly" and "The Night Chicago Died" in the same list. You cats are nothing if not diverse.

On night, when I was married ex-wife Cynthia, we had a party and a bunch of her fine arts dancing friends were over. You can imagine the horror when I put on the Dead Kennedys' "Too Drunk..." and my college buddies and I did our "Too Drunk To F*ck" dance in the dining room. They were horrorstruck.

I'm pretty certain that the hit version of "Billy Don't Be a Hero" was by Bo Donaldsen and the Heywoods, but I'm also pretty certain that Paper Lace wrote it; they were the guys who had the geographically-flawed "The Night Chicago Died," where Chicago mysteriously acquired an East side; I'd always thought that there was a lake there.

The "I'm Your Man" album was a great comeback for Cohen. My friend Andreas and I have had a twenty year discussion over the meaning of "First We Take Manhattan."

paper lace wrote billy dont be a hero

oy --- bad music sure travels in all directions

chicago doesnt have an east side and neither did Java -- since krakatoa was west of java (not like the movie title)

Wango Tango and Too Drunk to Fuck. Nicely played.
