RIP Bonnie

I havent heard this song in like...4 ever!!! I had forgotten about it.  THANK-YOU ENDLESSLY for posting it!!!   And now,  I am dancing with tears (of joy) in my eyes reminiscing about my youth.

This song remains funny in perpetuity.

Released when most people could make a go of it in Los Angeles.

The main "actor" in this resembles a young Ron Howard and that lady sitting there in the beginning looks like she's had one too many smoke breaks while waiting on tables in a diner in a rough part of Reno.

I always had it in my mind that Buckwheat and Dr. Feelgood were the same person.  Two mythical deadbeats whose story was told differently by the people from their respective Coast.   Hip Hoppers in the East and Rock-N-Rollers in the West.

I was listening to music to mellow out. (from Covid fatigue)  

I came across this. I think Ive mellowed out.  I love '50s rock.  This version is more...cha cha.  I guess the beautiful girl dancing the cha cha in soothed my tortured soul.    It has been on loop for the last 40 minutes.  My lovely wife doesnt get why Im dancing to the same song over and over.  Oh well.   Ill make it up to her when the kids go to bed ce soir!

I remember dancing to this song 4 plus decades ago. Was good then as it is now today. Course lovely woman bouncing around does help. :P

Probably Rod Stewart's best work ... my favorite, at any rate.  Also, there is great footage of NYC and its subways in the video.  Enjoy.

 

Great song..it's a cover of a Tom Waits track, here is the original video for the Tom Waits version..

 

Another train-themed song I like is Elton John's 'Runaway Train' w/ Eric Clapton on guitar...

Many of us remember the exact time and place we heard some songs.  That's the deal with me and this one.  I was in a nice rental car, running the A/C, and driving along the curves near San Timoteo Canyon along the 60, instead of using flatter I-10, going from L.A. out to the Coachella Valley (basically Palm Springs and the many desert towns that surround it).

The song matched the fairly empty roadway at the time.  There were some decent songs that are very '90s in character.

Chemical Brothers 'Block Rockin' Beats'.  A time and place song, driving around Centennial, Colorado in my buddy Steve's black '91 Acura NSX on a sunny April Saturday in 1998.  He had just bought the car in Portland, OR and driven it back to Colorado, I went over to his house and we went for a drive in it--I drove it also..we went out 470 to Morrison and up into the foothills..  This track was playing...first mid-engine car I'd driven.. will never forget the sound of that car under acceleration and this track... anytime I hear this track, I remember that car and first day I saw and drove it..good times.

Heard this is an indie coffeehouse tonight, which unlike the chain ones, was open for eat-in.

I prefer this instrumental version; there's also one with vocals.  Vince Guaraldi and his group may not have put a voice to the Charlie Brown series, but it would be hard to imagine the Charlie Brown series, and the Christmas holidays, without his unique music.

On loop

A week late...but as the lyrics go...

Quote

 

"Bah, humbug!" no, that's too strong
'Cause it is my favorite holiday
But all this year's been a busy blur
Don't think I have the energy

Merry Christmas! Merry Christmas!
But I think I'll miss this one this year

 

Merry Christmas! Merry Christmas!
Couldn't miss this one this year!
 
Merry Christmas! Merry Christmas!
Couldn't miss this one this year!

 

 

 

Here's hoping that 2021 will be better. At least by the time 2022 rolls along...

 

HAPPY NEW YEAR EVERYONE!!!
