MEME: Monday Music Mambo

Mememeister RFDuck isn't feeling the love this week:

"I'm going to do something a little different today. I'm not really liking the themes for this week (used car day and match day), so I'm going to pick my readers' brains and see what kind of themes YOU can come up with. So today's mambo will be:"


1. Name a few random songs you enjoy and want to recommend to others. With direction, a purpose or a goal, I'm fine. THIS question leaves me feeling like I am sinking in a whirlpool of choice, unable to even cip my hands to take a stroke – there's so many different ways to cup your hands, you know? Where Have All The Flowers Gone as sung by Peter, Paul and Mary is particularly piquant in light of recent history in Iraq. Jerry Garcia singing Friend of the Devil is always evocative for me. Maria Muldaur's It Ain't The Meat (It's The Motion) always brings a smile and a twinkle of the eye. Bob Dylan can move me to tears with Ain't Talkin' on the Modern Times album.

2. Give the mememeister one or two themes to use for future Mambos and Humps.

Want us to do your work for you, eh? Well, Russ, just to piss you off, how about one for “Used Car Day” – name all the car songs you can think of. And as to “Match Day,” take a hint from the old “Match Game” and name five songs you think that were better performed as a “cover” than by the original singer. Or, two columns, one songs, the other performers – match the songs to the performers.

I was feeling ornery today. Oh well, you can play by clicking the link above and be magically transported the the MEME: realm of memeister RFDuck and the Monday Mambo. Just don't forget your galoshes.

Thanks for mamboing. I'll have to think of some sort of matching theme for tomorrow.

Well, I've definitely gotta agree about Jerry and Friend of the Devil. I listened to a '77 show late last month and FOTD was definitely the 1st Set highlight. Often was pure perfection!
