Shaken, not stirred.
Nightclub, not beer joint.


My CD collection includes this one by Sir Douglas Quintet and also by its writer, Tom T. Hall.

I came across this on Youtube. The singer is just about perfect for this tune.

That's a nice example of classic Slavic peasant singing. Modern Russian pop music has a lot of female groups that incorporate something of the same full-throated vocalism in their rock and rap songs.

The title of the piece, "Vesna", is "Spring".

"... that we must live every night and day apar-har-hart."

Listening to this is like taking a dip in a swimming pool filled with estrogen. :)

I'm in the mood for some Chicago blues: Luther Allison's "Someday Pretty Baby".

This one can still be heard coming from the speakers at a grocery store near you.

I'm pretty sure I have linked this one before, but dang, the vocal harmony at 1:00.

My latest CD purchase has freight trains as its theme. Best track on it is 'Railroad Bill'.

One of my favorite Russian singers in Andrei Lenitsky. Since it is Autumn, I thought it might be appropriate to offer one of his best--Листья "Leaves".

I am rusty... but did think I got this right. From YouTube Vladimir Putin playing "Rasputin"
With apologies to Rie, whose link was broken, I found these possible replacements for what she had in mind--Copernicus.

I'm actually streaming audio from my favorite local radio station, WBER, the only station that matters. Currently, it is the "Boo" Wave Wednesday show (usually New Wave Wednesday), airing from 7-9am EST most weeks. It is an excellent listener-supported (thus commercial-free) alternative radio station. On Novermber 2nd and 3rd, they are doing their annual fundraiser, and usually do a marathon broadcast, staying on until they reach their goal. I've been in several markets across the country, and it is a pretty unique station.

In the pre-Internet days the best my ears could do was---

All my dollar bills seem to fly away
Then she looks at me as if to say


I imagined the singer being so infatuated with his girlfriend that he spent all his income on her. But the Net claims---

All my silent fears seem to fly away
And she smiled at me as if to say
