Friday Random Top Ten


Ya pushes "shuffle" and ya takes yer chances. . .
And today ya also goes on a Tijuana Picnic with the Colonel (and I gots no idea what Tijuana has to do with the people in that picture). . .

1. Top Of The World Shonen Knife
2. The Candy Man Black Majesty
3. Diddley Daddy Bo Diddley
4. Your Ya Ya Is Gone The Tren-Teens
5. Eclipse Pink Floyd
6. Romeo's Seance Elvis Costello & the Brodsky Quartet
7. Time Of The Season The Zombies
8. I Can't Control Myself ¡¡RAMONES!!
9. Little Cream Soda The White Stripes
10. 'Round The World A Cruel Hoax

Ya know, that opening song is the best song on that Carpenter's Tribute thang. I loves me the Shonen Knife girls. The second number is from one of the many Combos Nacionales, the Panamanian Calypso bands from the 50's through the 70's. Bo Diddley is followed by the Tren-Teens, a perfect transition (too bad there's no video to that song). Eclipse is so out of context here; thank God it's short, and Elvis and the Brodskys is a little weird with this list, too. But the Zombies, well, I'm always ready to hear the Zombies! And we go for the big rave-up ending with the Ramones, White Stripes, and A Cruel Hoax, the last band with which I played, many years ago, before my current gig with El Gran Combo de San Cristóbal!

Turkey's in the oven, house is getting clean, think I'll have lunch.
Happy Friday, evrabuddy!

Tijuana would not be anyone's choice as a place for a picnic today, unless they had a death wish! With the Narco Wars it is much too dangerous. If only the USA would make buying guns much harder, there would be less killing here in Mexico.

And KFC tastes like cardboard here in Mexico.

I started with Stairway to Heaven by Ms Parton and this is what the iTunes Genius created from my library. It is all a little bit Country. But, I luvs me some country! C&W has the same rhythms as Tejano and Norteño, so it is easy for us to dance to.

Stairway To Heaven - Dolly Parton
Angel of the Morning - Juice Newton
Amazing Grace - Leann Rimes
Independence Day - Martina McBride
If Tomorrow Never Comes - Garth Brooks
Jesus Take The Wheel - Carrie Underwood
I Will Always Love You (Original Version) - Dolly Parton
Ten Thousand Angels Cried - Leann Rimes
Breathe - Faith Hill
Concrete Angel - Martina McBride

Tijuana picnic?!?!? I will take David's word that it is much too dangerous now, but what were they thinking in Col. Sanders' day?

Even the jokes I could make are just too awful to be mentioned.

I See You!
