TGIF!!

 

 It's been a long month this week.  Hopefully today goes as well as the plans that were laid out

yesterday. We all know how that goes. Anyway, TGIF. It's a beautiful day here and I'm already

looking forward to the clock striking 4PM.

 

Let's see the list we can generate in the comments...

 


 Quickly, off the top of my head, I got this:

  2. You may not have caught this one ... But Fee Waybill's ( Lead singer for ' The Tubes ' ) solo album's title track ' Read My Lips ' works every time for me ! ... There's many more ... That's just the first to pop to the forefront of the mind ... I'll add a few more as the day progresses ... You should collect a list !!! ...

    1. Hey Wickless,
      I feel like I'm walking into a setup on this one, but there is no song titled "Read My Lips" on the CD version of Read My Lips (https://www.ebay.com/itm/284338224417?hash=item4233e0fd21:g:Yp4AAOSwQlxgzOCR ). Was it only on the vinyl album? Yes, I like The Tubes.

  4. Radar Love is a favorite for volume increase, especially while driving. LaGrange works well too, increasing the likelihood of a speeding ticket.

  5. Not a radio listener anymore, but in 1972 it would have been Wishbone Ash's "The King Will Come". Wishbone Ash, along with Uriah Heep, had a lot of radio play in the early and mid seventies. But the co-called "classic" rock stations seem to have forgotten that.

  25. So many good ones so far. My first choice is "Highway Star" by Deep Purple, and apparently I'm in agreement with several others. "The Zoo" by the Scorpions, "Turn It On, Turn It Up, Turn Me Loose" by Dwight Yoakam, "Long Cool Woman in a Black Dress" by The Hollies, and "Comfortably Numb" by Pink Floyd round out my top 5.

    1. Oh Lawdy Rahmon,

      How I've managed to somehow miss including Tull in the list I made for my 'designated' funeral director to introduce to whoever shows up I do not know.

      Backstory - Friend (not alas until he got back) returns from Nam 1970 and after his wedding to a former 'friend' of mine slips that tape into his eight-track in his '69 Chevelle honkingly motorized right out in front of the church abutting the county seat's Court-square (copshop less than 100' away) me in the backseat (*she asked *him that I be his *bestman - 16 as I recall, me not she)

      Anyway there I am minding my own damn business when Aqualung bursts forth. I'm slammed to the back of the bench seat and instead of seeing the trees I was always before accustomed to seeing through any windshield I'd ever seen through before all I seen then was blue sky.

      And the immediate aftermath was pretty interesting too but as G-d is my witness I don't have a freakin' clue as to how he managed to get that bitch - the car not the wife - back in control I do not know.

      Cops didn't ticket him. "Nobody f*cks with Aqualung" is how he explained it to me after their honeymoon and my underdrawers had been severally washed.

      Thanks again Rahmon. Reminds me I need to call my friend which I immediately intend to do.

      And thanks all for an unexpected bookmark.

    1. I was driving around the Ring Road in Munster (West} Germany one afternoon in the late 1980's when Green Grass and High Tides comes on over the German radio station. That's a hell of a memory. And every time I hear it, I have a flashback to that time. Always will
