More music for a Saturday morning... as I type this I have no idea what it's going to be, except for the first couple tunes in my head, and after that it's anyone guess. Probably not any Moxy Fruvous, but I can't promise.
A smart visitor to this page by the name of Ed Beck suggested some sort of reference to find songs I've put up here in the past to make them easy to find. I have an idea on how to do this, so keep an eye out for it in the near future.
This week's version of Good Morning Little School Girl is from one of the finest voices in rock and roll history, Van Morrison.
A double shot of Van the Man just because I wanted to play my favorite song by Morrison. I love songs with lots of words that sound like the singer is baring his soul, and giving you the secret to the meaning of life. To be truthful most of them don't really make a whole lot of sense, but they sure sound nice. Click the link to follow along.
When I think about the type of song I described above... the one's that don't make much sense, but you can spend hours discussing them... one name comes to my mind as the king. Bob Dylan. I don't know what Ballad Of A Thin Man is about, but I could spend hours talking about it. Great imagery.... "a one eyed midget shouting the word "now""... I don't know what it means, but it's awesome.
Wish I could find a better sounding version of this on YouTube, but the vinyl clicks and pops are pretty cool.
Wednesday's on The Wease Show we play a game called "Theme Bump Wednesday", where all the songs we play coming back from commercials have something in common. The first listener to guess that theme wins a nice prize. This week's theme was "artists that have died on stage". While researching this I found a song I'd never heard before, and really dug. It's the late Johnny "Guitar" Watson with his tune "Ain't That A Bitch".
Part 2 of the Saturday Morning Music Blogcast coming soon. Questions, comments, and suggestions can be sent to email@example.com or sent via Twitter @RadioBillyD I'd love to know what's on your mind.
