The Warming Trend Friday Random Ten

We had a harsh January here in Chicago-- really, really cold and lots of snow. It's supposed to warm up this weekend. I'm all for it.

A couple of other bloggers have mentioned the loss of Lux Interior, singer of the Cramps. RIP, Lux. Thanks for psychobilly memories.

1. Things We Said Today- The Beatles
2. Get Together- The Youngbloods
3. I've Never Been To Spain- Three Dog Night
4. Roller Derby Queen- Jim Croce
5. Boogie- A Taste of Honey
6. In Dreams- Roy Orbison
7. Stray Cat Blues- The Rolling Stones
8. Back In the Saddle Again- Aerosmith
9. The Man In Black- Johnny Cash
10. Goodbye, Little Darlin'- Johnny Cash

1. Some early Beatles
2. This song has become an anthem of the sixties. I hate hearing it in commercials.
3. One of many songs Hoyt Axton penned for others: "The Pusher," by Steppenwolf, the "No, No Song" by Ringo Star and another hit for Three Dog Night, "Joy To The World." It must have run in the family; his mother co-wrote Elvis' "Heartbreak Hotel."
4. I read recently that Roller Derby is making a come-back. Holy seventies, Batman!
5. Disco one-hit wonders
6. This song is a showcase for Roy Orbison's incredible vocal range. And it's also embedded in bizzaro-pop culture, thanks to David Lynch's "Blue Velvet."
7. The Stones at their delicious nastiest.
8. Aerosmith at their drug-addled best.
9. Johnny Cash explaining his mono-color wardrobe.
10. ...and more Johnny Cash!
