Today is a "professional development day," which means we sent out little thugs home after third period, and we'll sit through teacher meetings, the bane of my existence, all afternoon. Since we have to wait for the people from the South Side campus to get up here, I have time for lunch and my random 10.
1. Boogie Fever- The Sylvers
2. I Still Haven't Found What I'm Looking For- U2
3. All LA Glory- The Band
4. Face on the Barroom Floor- Hank Snow
5. Is that Justice-Jon Wayne Texas Funeral
6. Carnival- Natalie Merchant
7. Living on a Thin Line- The Kinks
8. Generals and Majors- XTC
9. Long Way Home- Supertramp
10. Luther Played the Boogie- Johnny Cash
One More: Johnny Cash and Bob Dylan doing Elvis' first single, "That's All Right, Mama."
1. How the hell did this get on my itunes? I can only thing of one redeeming quality for this song-- it proves that there could be stupider songs than Carl Douglas' "Kung Fu Fighting," and Rick Dees "Disco Duck"
2. Pre-suck-point U2.
3. From the Stagefright album.
4. The best story song since Lorne Greene's "Ringo."
5. The funniest song from the funniest album ever. "Is that justice? Is that proper?"
6. Why is Natlie Merchant always so serious? I think she needs to cover a couple of funny songs-- maybe "They're Coming to Take Me Away." Or "Kung Fu Fighting." Or maybe even "Boogie Fever."
7. I think that the Kinks are incapable of sucking. Except when my wife saw them live, and The Davies brothers got in a fistfight in front of thousands of people.
8.These guys jumped the shark with "Mayor of Simpleton." In the late seventies and early eighties, they rocked.
9. I know/they're only wimp-rock/ but I like it.
10. Johnny Cash-- now that's what I'm talking about!
