Happy President’s Day!

21 Feb

Do you ever think that some things were just easier when Bush was around?  Like having songs such as “When the President Talks to God” by Bright Eyes being written, for instance.

Ah, the good ole days.

On another note, have you or do you know anyone who has ever visited Mt. Rushmore?  I don’t and I just realized that’s really weird.



Some Days Are Harder Than Others

20 Feb

Today’s song is “This Will be Our Year” by The Zombies because when I feel it least is when I have to try to believe it most.

Download your affirmation, here.


Come here baby…just a little bit closer

19 Feb

Last night I spent the wee small hours of the morning seeing Christian Marclay’s The Clock and I woke up with The Strangelove’s “Night Time” in my head.  I love the way the subconscious works.

But it makes sense.  The night time is the right time.  See for yourself, here.


Lotus Flower

18 Feb

As the whole world knows by now, the new Radiohead album was released today, one day early, for download.

Upon first listen, “Lotus Flower” is the song that I kept hitting “repeat” for.  And then I saw the video, directed by Garth Jennings and now I am fully obsessed.

Here you go, today’s download.  But I’m betting you may have already done that.


Come Here, Lover-Boy….

17 Feb

I’m back in NYC, where there is gorgeous faux-Spring weather.   And nothing says faux-Spring like a little romance.   Since it’s common knowledge that romance always goes best with a great guitar lick, here’s Mickey & Sylvia’s “Love Is Strange.”

In a month or two, once full blown Spring happens, I’ll post one of my favorite sexxxxxxxy songs by a solo Sylvia….because nothing says full-blown Spring like doing “it.”


Un Regalo para Todos

Mi Madre

One of my earliest memories is my mother singing “Besame Mucho” over and over again.  Today is her birthday and in Margauxville, this momentous occasion is marked with my personal favorite version of the song by Cesaria Evora.

I’m giving everyone that birthday gift, right here.

¡Feliz cumpleaños, Mami!


America’s Most Hated

15 Feb

I know people will think today’s song is a joke post, but it’s not.  I admit that Kevin Federline’s “America’s Most Hated” may have started off that way to me way back when, but over the years, I’ve come to love it.  For reals yo.

Check it. And if you do want to make fun of it, the lyrics will definitely help you out.
