I was sitting behind the skate park fence at Metro Beach in the late 70s watching the skaters skate and there was one guy -- muscular, tall, built -- who was dancing/skating in time to “Love’s Theme,” doing pirouttes, skating backward, curving slicing slaloming. I was about ten, just utterly entranced.

I went to all the dances in high school because my therapist at the time said they would help me “acquire illicit alcohol.” Every dance, always this song. Also Van Halen’s “Jump.”

Stereolab “French Disco [Early Version Mix]”

Running time is ANSI-certified 3:35 but it feels too short. [LQQKS] Huh, “Early Version Mix” is 4:30. [FX: swaps poisoned chalice with non-poisoned chalice, or does he (Y/y)?] Done. It’s dirtier. My gain is your gain.

Sami Kamara and his Black Diamonds “Objetebe”

Tamure Tahitien “Pae Pae”

Gave away 99% of my vinyl records; one stack to a good friend, another stack earmarked for, if they didn't have ’em. Still need to send that stack. Combining it with old K-Mart training tapes & etc. Just got tired of hauling them place to place to place, can use the room for other things. More junk.

Dr. Calculus “Perfume From Spain”

Fiona Apple “The First Taste”

Linda Ronstadt “You’re No Good”

The The “Sweet Bird of Truth”

Leonard Cohen “Suzanne”

Wiki: “Cohen said he benefited only from his own performances of ‘Suzanne,’ having signed away his rights to the song itself in a legal document deceptively presented to him which he did not read.”

That’s ... capitalism! [SFX: rim shot] It’s a contract, says right here the artist wanted to give away his song for free. Very common-sense desire, give the giant multi-national record conglomerate its fair due.

George Benson “Breezin’”

I can no longer listen to “Broadway,” in high school there was a drama production w/an associated dance that I had to be at for reasons I’ve forgotten, and they kept fucking up and restarting “Broadway.” This song, however, one of my high school friends used to play it every day when we were camping, after waking up. A good start to a day.

Sun Electric “R-Gent”

Bill Withers “Use Me”

“We now take you to ‘Use Me,’ already in progress.” You are giving up that slinky jam so quickly. Though, I suppose, just make it known square one what’s going on. This is going on.

Morcheeba “The Sea”

The sea. The foreboding, unfathomable sea. The sea. The sea. The. Sea.

Bobbie Gentry “Ode To Billie Joe”

Ginette Garcin “Cresoxipropanédiol en Capsule”

Often when things go wrong
When I’m in low spirits
When I feel my nerves crack
Or when I’m not feeling well
To get into the swing of things
I know a good way
In a glass of sugar water
To perk me up

Eartha Kitt “C’est Si Bon”

Isaintjames “Yazzy”

Single Gun Theory “From A Million Miles”

Colourbox “Just Give ’em Whiskey”

For whatever reason I got obsessed with the clicky bit of “Looks Like We’re Shy One Horse / Shootout” (it happens at 4:59, definitely on the “Shootout” side). It lasts for about a second. Thought about it for two days while in isolation. I mean, double isolation -- first, I couldn’t remember the band, the song, anything. Just the clicking. Second, I was on my third bug out because Covid had come to the house so Let’s Live In Car Until Things Settle Down. I don’t know what it means, if anything, or my brain was just sort of latching on interesting little geegaws to pass the time away while dealing with car livin’. I couldn’t put the song on this compilation because I already put it on the 2022mixtape so you get “Just Give ”em Whiskey" instead.

Mental As Anything “Brain Brain”

Dub Specialist “Queen of the Dub”

Small Crush “Chicken Noodle”

Danielle Dax “Daisy”

Exploded View “Orlando”

Tackhead “What’s My Mission Now?”

The Postal Service “Natural Anthem”

I put this album on the figurative shelf for 18 years for reasons. Shouldn’t have waited that long. There, that’s my personal philosophy. “Shouldn’t have waited that long.” Also, good for my grave stone. Actually I was going to do research on that, if someone is collecting overly-wordy gravestone pix. Like 4pt type. “I got something to say!” [FX: searches] Hrm. Not coming up with good search terms. I’ll talk to my local gravestone engraver about pastabilities. [FX: grabs coffee, walks down street]
