We Now Return To Our Regular Blogging

Between the SOA fund drive and DNS trouble, I haven't been posting much lately. So now that I've rebuilt my TCP parameters and done my little bit (and I would not mind more requests for the below-mentioned CD-ROM) I'll try to post some content this weekend. For starters, we have this variation on a theme going around:

1. Grab the nearest CD.
2. Put it in your CD-Player (or start your mp3-player, I-tunes, etc.).
3. Skip to Song 3 (or load the 3rd song in your 3rd playlist)
4. Post the first verse in your journal along with these instructions. Don’t name the band, nor the album-title.

People are supposed to identify the CD, and the performer, without googling the lyrics. Hah! Nearest CD is an instrumental, and if I were to burn up Pixy's bandwidth by posting an MP3, I doubt anybody would identify it anyway.

The Lightning Fingers of Roy Clarke (then newly discovered, playing in Wanda Jackson's band) and the third track is "Golden Slippers". Basically country picking, but influenced by the then-popular surf sound and The Twist. There is a cover of "In The Mood" which doesn't quite work but still supports my theory that it could be a great rocker.

Chicago did a pretty kick-ass cover of In the Mood on their Night and Day CD. Great disk if you're into Big Band.
