Birthday jams

I think it's vaguely creepy how Blogger features birthday cake today when I log in. You're a BOT, dude!

Thanks to all my Twitter friends who wished me a happy birthday when I threatened to become hysterical! I love you!

Below: stuff that makes me feel particularly old, in no special order.

~*~

If you are drinking heavily and/or involved with bikers, this is a great break-up song. Famous guitar riffs at the end (by the late Duane Allman), sound just like a whip. WALLOW IN THAT PAIN, people!

Whipping Post - Allman Brothers Band



~*~

Speaking of Twitter, there is hashtag titled #Iwish, and I bet them whippersnappers don't even know where that came from.

Turn it up!

I Wish - Stevie Wonder



~*~

One of those songs that when you search for it on YouTube, you get every single damn amateur troubadour from here to Luckenbach, thinks he can sing it.

We received our education in the cities of the nation...

Me and Paul - Willie Nelson



~*~

Montage of early Who clips. Roger had not yet discovered his trademark flashy Elvis-on-acid outfits, and sometimes appears as if he had just emerged from bad job interview. (He shows his incipient fashion sense at approx 1:02, dons sunglasses.) John, age 21, looks about 14; Keith Moon was all of 19 years old, appears 12. Pete was working on his pseudo-alienated, "I'm too good for mere rock and roll" major artiste pose, which would serve him very well throughout his life.

Check out those 60s mods and their strange amphetamine-inspired dance moves!

I Can't Explain - The Who



~*~

Captain for Dark Mornings - Laura Nyro



Enjoy, and happy birthday to me!

And of course, I left your birthday greetings on the Dreamwidth journal. Which you probably don't see anymore. Happy birthday, and may Eddie Izzard sidle up to you and demand "Cake...or cake?"

Oh my Daisy I am always a day late and a dollar short!! I missed your birthday!!

Please forgive me. but, mama always told me better late than never!!

So Happy belated birthday to you!! I hope you had a grand day!!

I am never ever signed into Twitter and miss so much.

I've tried blogging while being signed in and every time my window pops up I get diverted.

Trust me, I love the age I am now. For life just keeps getting better with age!!

So don't be down. The alternative to getting older is much much worse!!

I love the tunes you picked. As a true blue southern born and raised girl I know all of these very well!!

Happy birthday sweet friend of mine!!

Hugs,
Jackie
