Another Update: Thanks, Phil, for the link to the origins of "Mah Na Mah Na," plus the spelling correction. I'm in a gregarious mood this morning, but don't worry, once I have my coffee, I'll be back to my normal curmudgeonly self.
Update: check the sidebar for the streaming video of "Mah Na Mah Na." Thank you, Lady Hearteater, for bringing its existence to my attention. Your friend, Brad
Since my landlord and landlady won't let me use their car anymore (even going so far as to hide the keys from me), I am in the market for a car of my own. Of course, it's important to have a car music mix ready for that day. I've copied some of Ulric's Led Zeppelin and AC/DC mixes (old AC/DC, of course), but I needed something more eclectic for those eclectic moods. Here's what I've got so far:
On the Road Again--Canned Heat
Motorcycle Song--Arlo Guthrie
Surfing in Siberia--Red Elvises
Not Dead Yet--Styx
Ball Of Confusion--Love & Rockets
Jaan Pahechan Ho--Mohd. Rafi,et al.
Mah Na Mah Na--Muppets
Money (That's What I Want)--Flying Lizards
Boogie Shoes--K.C. & The Sunshine Band
There's A Barbarian In The Back Of My Car--Voice Of The Beehive
When It Comes To You--Dire Straits
I Am The Walrus--Oingo Boingo Boingo
Now I've got to find a car. I can't just borrow one off the street anymore, because people are a bit touchy about that in this neighborhood, and they end up calling the police. I'm in the market for a lime-green Fiat. Anyone interested in making a trade? I could give you some of my art pieces.
