MEME: Monday Music Mambo - Week 112

RFDuck, the Monday Music Mambo Mememeister, regales us all again, thusly:

“Hello all! It's time to mambo again, so get your dancing shoes on.”

“Today is Chew The Fat Day.”


“OK, then.”

“Tomorrow is Woodstock Day, so we'll do that one instead.”

1. If you were old enough to go to the original Woodstock, would you have gone? If you are old enough, did you want to go or did you go? (If you DID go, you better tell us a good story about it).

I was old enough, alright. But, I had to work. My girlfriend went, and she had a great time dancing naked in the rain, waiting hours for the use of a Porta-Potty, having her wallet and camera stolen while she waited in said line (her friend just sort of wandered off with some guy and forgot all about watching their stuff), starving after the vendors ran out of food and damn glad she lived close enough that it only took twelve hours to get the 130 miles from Wallkill, New York to Cheshire, Connecticut (the State Police had closed the NY Thruway). I'm still jealous!

2. Other than Jimi Hendrix, what group or artist would you have absolutely not missed at Woodstock? If you need help, go here.

I'd have wanted to see Janis Joplin and The Grateful Dead.

3. If you were in charge of the lineup of an all new Woodstock, name at least two acts for each day of a three-day event.
I think I'd shoot myself first – I can't think of a less rewarding job in pop music today. OK, let's see – Wolfstone, Black-eyed Peas and their big band, Lyle Lovett and his big band, Coldplay, Gnarls Barkley, and for all the wannabe hippies, I'd invite back Joni Mitchell, Taj Mahall, The Rolling Stones, the remaining members of The Grateful Dead and whoever else I could find who'd work cheap and put up with all the bullshit that goes along with an outside venue...

Really, suicide would be preferable.

The rules are, there are no rules!!! All you need to do is copy and paste the above questions into your blog and add your responses. After you've finished, return here and leave us a comment so we'll know you've Mamboed. Be sure your Mambo is linked back to so others can dance too.

Remember, there are no right or wrong answers. If one of the questions doesn't inspire you then simply "pass" it. Just use your imagination and dance like crazy!

If you don't have a blog or you're an exhibitionist *woo hoo* feel free to Mambo right here in our comments section. There's absolutely no pressure ... although it's called the Monday Music Mambo you can Mambo on any day.

Until next time, this is your music-lovin' Mememeister saying have a good Monday and a good Mambo!
