If you can’t figure out what song I am going to do based on the picture, let me give you another hint. He looks exasperated because he is late for a pina colada date at Trader Vic’s. Yes, “Werewolves in London” performed by Warren Zevon on his 1978 album Excitable Boy features a hirstute gentlemen whose hair is always perfect. The song features Fleetwood Mac’s John McVie and Mick Fleetwood. While the lyrics are somewhat macabre they are hilarious and well-done.
Fun Fact (Thanks Wikipedia): “The Grateful Dead covered this song a number of times, often on Halloween, including a performance in London’s Wembley Stadium on Halloween 1990. The band also performed the song once as a rare encore on July 8, 1978 at Red Rocks Amphitheatre.”
I just turned on my IPod to listen to some music while I put away my laundry (is there a better feeling then warm laundry?) A random song popped on. This is the gist of this new category. Occasionally I will just post up a song. It could be a song that I like or hate. It could be a song that is stuck in my head or a song that I have not listened to for a while. Basically, if a song is playing and I want to post…I am going to post it. How does that sound?
Well, it is now 1:32 a.m. and I should really go to sleep. But, I am a bit restless. My essay on the male dominated theocracy present in “The Handmaid’s Tale” by Margaret Atwood is not treating me well. I just finished watching a documentary on North Korea called “Welcome to North Korea.” It is an interesting watch and it can be streamed for free on www.archive.org. And, it is only an hour. I am sure you can spare an hour to be socially and culturally stimulated.
I have to believe that before this still was taken the band was rocking side-to-side
Wait, this is a music blog. Right? Oh yeah! “Bits and Pieces” by The Dave Clark Five is a two minute song that hit #4 on U.S. charts in 1964. It is a quick and catchy tune. But, you must watch the video that I will embed. Watch it and attempt not to cock your head side to side. It is like The Dave Clark Five were traded for smiling robots with two functions: play music and move side-to-side. Oh, and they also stomp their feet. This is hilariously entertaining.
