Seattle Sounds- Friday Random 10

1. In the Summertime- Mungo Jerry
2. Danny's Song- Loggins and Messina
3. She Sells Sanctuary- The Cult
4. Crawling From the Wreckage- Dave Edmunds
5. Pusherman- Curtis Mayfield
6. Sheik- ZZ Top
7. Just One Look- Doris Troy
8. There Is No Time- Lou Reed
9. Are You Ready For the Country- Neil Young
10. Get Down Tonight- K.C. and the Sunshine Band

Notes:
1. This was a one-hit wonder from 1970. I can remember hearing it on the radio as a kid. Yeah, I'm that old
2. There was actually a time when Kenny Loggins didn't suck. This is from that time. Another note- Jim Messina was previously in Buffalo Springfield with Stephen Stills and Neil Young.
3. Love this song-- it was on the jukebox (remember those?) in Danny's, on Dickens near Damen, back when Danny still owned it-- everybody called it "the Elvis bar" because of all the Elvis memarobilia.
4. From the Dave Edmunds box set.
5. From the Curtis Mayfield box set.
6. From the ZZ muthaf*ckin' six-pack, baby! Now that's what I'm talkin' about!
7. A great old R and B number.
8. From "New York," Lou Reed's most overtly political album. Saw Lou on the tour supporting that album.
9. "Slippin' and a slidin'/And playing dominoes/Leftin' then a' rightin'/It's not a crime you know." I don't know what the hell it means either, but I love the song.
10. Do a little dance. Make a little love. Get down tonight, people. That's an order.
