Summer So Close I Can Taste It Friday Random Ten

Yesterday, we finally had a nice Spring day here in Chicago-- now that Summer is almost here. I took advantage of it to go to a Cubs game yesterday. Now, if it ever stops raining...

1. Teenage Lobotomy- The Ramones
2. Last Child- Aerosmith
3. A Summer Song- Chad and Jeremy
4. Bad Little Woman- Shadows of Knight
5. Wouldn't It Be Nice?- The Beach Boys
6. Push A Little Daisy- Ween
7. Lonely Days- The Bee Gees
8. I Shall Be Free #10- Bob Dylan
9. The Bird- The Ramones
10. Kentucky Rain- Elvis Presley

1. Classic Ramones.
2. From "Rocks."
3. Perfect song for today.
4. A Chicago group best known for their cover of Van Morrison's classic "Gloria." This song is from the Nuggets garage rock collection.
5. A sweet little number from one of my favorite bands.
6. Whatever happened to these guys?
7, This one was from between the Bee Gees folk and disco periods.
8. Some early Bob Dylan-- he refers to Cassius Clay (now known as Muhammad Ali) in the song.
9. Joey and the boys covering the Trashmen's classic.
10. Probably my favorite Elvis Presley song. It was co-written by Eddie Rabbit.

I am a big fan of the pre-disco Bee Gees. I really liked their stuff.

Remember New York Mining Disaster?

I certainly do-- it's on my Itunes.

Seriously, what's up with this weather? I came home with a suitcase full of summer clothing, not my foul weather gear.

Great list. Love the Ramones. I had no idea Eddie Rabbit wrote that song.
