We finally had enough o' that Al Green groove we've been in for the last two weeks or so. That's not a BAD groove to be in, but there comes a time when even Pandora begins to repeat themselves. Accordingly, we switched stations when we heard "I'm So Tired of Bein' Alone" for about the eighth time. I do love that tune... but enough is enough.
So we switched to Roxy Music radio... which is a pleasin' pastiche o' pop, mostly Brit-Pop from the '80s and '90s, with bands like Tears For Fears (that song contains the BEST freakin' rhythm guitar break EVER recorded, beginning around the 2:30 mark), The Cure, Queen, Bowie, and such... but also features American bands like The Cars and Talking Heads, which we chose for this post.
I don't know why I love her like I doI think one o' the better thangs about livin' in Portales is the fact there ain't no river near by... but we digress. I was hard pressed to choose just ONE tune for our soundtrack today, as the selections were ALL magnificent (some which I linked, above) and seemed to hit our sweet-spot. And we've yet to hear "Avalon"... my absolute FAVORITE Roxy Music tune.
All the changes you put me through
Take my money, my cigarettes
I haven't seen the worst of it yet
I wanna know that you'll tell me
I love to stay
Take me to the river, drop me in the water
Take me to the river, dip me in the water
Apropos o' not much... the only downer about today's Happy Hour occurred when my lovely neighbor stopped over for some conversation and then invited me in to her place. That wasn't a bad thang, in and of itself. Nope... the downer came when she had to excuse herself to get ready for work and I said "Ok, c'ya later." To which she replied "OK, sir... have a great day."
We shall pause for just one moment to let the implications of that form o' address sink in.
We'll belabor the obvious just in case you didn't geddit: Sweet Young Thangs NEVER sleep with men they routinely address as "sir." And so dies Popular and Recurring Fantasy Number Two, not that it had much life to begin with, but ya know how these thangs go.
