Ruminating, From the Surreal to the Virtual...or Vice Versa
‘Excuse Me, I Think I’ve Got a Heartache’ by CakeWelcome to Weird-Ass Wednesday! In a sense this could be an Uncoverd tune, so why not!?! Anywho, this is Cake doing Dwight Yoakum doing Buck Owens! Simply put, Cake taking on the Bakersfield sound is weird-ass enough to qualify for today’s tune! Hope you all have a wonderful Weird-Ass Wednesday and I’ll return tomorrow with my weekly celebration of Thor’s Day! Take care and peace out…

‘California Sun’ by RamonesBack at ya with The Ramones rendition of California Sun. The tune was made popular by The Rivieras in the 60s, but Dick Dale, Brian Wilson and even The Replacements have offered up an interpretation with the original recording going to Joe Jones. But this version is also on a classic B-Movie, Rock and Roll High School…plus The Ramones rule! Oh yeah, this is yet another Uncoverd tune! I’ll be back for Weird-Ass Wednesday, take care and peace out…

‘God Of Thunder - Live at Budokan 1977’ by KisstheCapn back for Soundtrack Sunday and keeping with my promise of Halloween all tunes are related to horror flicks until the Day of the Dead is celebrated! Today’s tune from that “gimmick” band from 70s USA, Kiss, is ‘God of Thunder’. The tune is on the soundtrack of the film, Halloween. I chose the live performance from ‘77 as that is how I remember Kiss from my teen years. Hope you enjoy the tune. Take care and peace out…

‘Another Hero’ by Vicious CrusadeWell double dadgum! Apparently I drifted off to sleep before finishing my Thors’s Day jam…with laptop at my waist laying down Thursday morn, well about noon, after work (I work nights). Just now realized that heavy eye allowed musicus interuptus mutatis mutandis. Thus and so, a delayed Thor’s Day celebration selection. Vicious Crusade is Belorussian and can be identified or labeled as thrash metal with folk melodies and opera  singing. Don’t let the thrash metal scare you off with this particular tune! Hope all enjoy the week’s end! Take care and peace out…

‘Foggy River’ by Conway TwittyWelcome to Weird-Ass Wednesday! So, you think you know Conway Twitty!?! Well this is one of Conway’s early rockabilly tunes just after Sun Records booted his butt for sounding like a bad Elvis impersonator! (Way too early for such!) This tune is a good distance from the Conway of the 70s and Tight Fittin’ Jeans! Hope you enjoy the tune, and back tomorrow with my weekly Thors Day celebration selection! Take care and peace out…
