It’s another difficult prompt from the Kickin’ It Old Skool Blogathon, simply because it’s too hard to narrow it down.
It was so much fun sharing our movies last week. In fact, we’re sure many of us have filled our wish lists and our Netflix queue’s with all sorts of fresh options! Let’s do the same with our playlists.
Goodness. There’s so much goodness out there that it’s really difficult to narrow it down.
The Sner and I have been in love with the band Mumbo Gumbo for decades now. Nobody better to dance to when you’re in the mood to do a little happy booty shakin’…
And then there’s Paul Thorn – who we are going to see in Tupelo Friday night. When my in-laws lived in Tupelo and Paul was just starting out, my mother-in-law used to open the CDs he sold at the merchandise table.
On a side note, if you’re not following Paul Thorn on Facebook, you need to. It’s been a minute but he can post some of the most hilarious things in the world. Several Christmases ago he had this whole thing about sex that made me laugh so hard I cried.
And then there’s JJ Grey & Mofro. While I love the music (seriously love the music), when I need a laugh, I watch this video. It used to be that before they played this song live, JJ would go through the story of this song, prefacing it by saying that every man is an ass man and ladies, if your man says he doesn’t like your ass, he’s lying or he’s gay. Because men don’t care – small, big, round, flat, 3 ft wide – he loves your ass. Which segued into the first time he heard his father curse. They were stopped at a stoplight and a woman walked in front of them. The next thing he knew, he heard his daddy say, “Damn! She’s got an ass like an army mule!” Good stuff. Very good stuff.
Of course, that’s not all there is, though. There is my old stand-by –
And this…always this. It’s a great driving song.
Probably enough for one night. What are some of your favorite songs?
