This is such a peculiar find that I can't resist: Madness covers Mother and Child Reunion.

That sounded exactly how I expected it would.

One of the cats who I try to work with, and who is stuck "living" in a motherfucking trap, only calms down when I sing him Paul Simon songs. The woman who runs the "rescue" is approaching batshit crazy

Leave out the "approaching"; last night, she decided that I had had a stroke and freaked out my friends to the point that they were searching for me on the street and I was in the ED until 3 a.m.

As a consequence, I present a Finninsh cover of "YMCA." Rest assured that there was a time when I was a genuine connoisseur of Finnish pop covers, although this one was sent to me as a retort to my sending
"Belly of the Whale" from the ED.

Hmph. Teh Whackyweedia reports that it was actually the Burning Sensations whose version of "Pablo Picasso" appeared in Repo Man. Everything That Rises Must Converge.*

* I loathe Flannery O'Connor, BTW.

Speaking of "Pablo Picasso," though, I did indeed switch to Wranglers last year.

Charles Ives' "Variations on 'America'" on organ.

Oddly enough, it turned out that my shrink has actually performed this as part of some chamber-music group that he's part of when not collecting Canadian art. I'm mildly surprised that he didn't press the magic 72 button before we got that far. Selah.

As much as I loathe Vimeo, this seems to be the version of "The Mighty Quinn" from Greatest Hits Volume 2. And yes, I have had pigeons running to me this morning.

I'd have done "It's a Rainy Day, Sunshine Girl" if this site weren't still broken six ways to Sunday.

Well, I inexplicably woke up with the Oscar Meyer jingle in my head, but then it was The M.T.A.

A cover of "Chicago" by Stay. I have the vinyl 45 somewhere. As it happens, my former employment specialist was a helicopter side-gunner in Viet Nam. It did not treat him well, but he was sartorial as hell once he got it back together a couple of decades later.

Fairly well known, but I'll add it anyway: One Toke Over the Line from the Lawrence Welk Show. Fantastic program when coming down from the Supreme Sacrament on Saturday, BTW. Used to be on around 5:00 on WYIN, as I recall. They omit the "I met all the girls" verse.

Part 1 of The Doobie Brothers episode of What's Happening. This only occurred to me because I thought it was sans Michael McDonald, but I was sadly mistaken. Still, it's a classic.

I want to live in a world where you can get caught bootlegging and still pal around with the band afterward.

In honor of the collapse of the Trump administration's risible failure to protect the baby-formula industry,* I offer Rufus Is a Tit Man.**

* I was formula-fed and have a very dim opinion of MDC-style lactivists.
** Whoops.

OK, so sometimes I hang out with Jerry the local schizophrenic in the park across from my imaginary ex's place. He seems to be well-read, although I doubt that he really was Abbie Hoffman's lawyer in New York for a year. (This came up in the context of Jimmy Carter, and for some reason he mentioned that Amy had gone to Brown. As it happens, my imaginary ex did as well, and she once got stoned with Amy and Abbie.)

Anyway he informed me that "Proud Mary" was about reefer, which somehow had never occurred to me before. In an unrelated event, today I wanted to hip a friend to RollinUke. Right on the first page of results.

I can scarcely imagine what Grandpa Jones, given his vow to hunt the man who invented Daylight Saving Time, would have done to the bastard who came up with low-flow toilets.
