Bloggers often call it "Monday Music" (on Twitter, it's reversed: Music Monday), but I never have time to post Monday Music... so can't we change it to Tuesday Music?
Ahh, no alliteration.
In any event, I hope the following are arcane and interesting enough for all of you. I had originally believed they were in chronological order, but now that I am carefully checking the dates? I discover, hm, no they aren't. Sorry about that!
Ann Peebles is too great for mere words.
I Can't Stand the Rain - Ann Peebles (1974)
Excellent early-70s funk stylings, featuring terrific trumpet work by Cynthia Robinson. Also, a great song about drug addiction! (I realized this even in junior high school, which probably wasn't a good sign.)
Look at you foolin you...
Running Away - Sly and the Family Stone (1971)
Love the Bruce Lee doll that materializes out of nowhere!
I'm the Man - Joe Jackson (circa 1978)
Pylon is the band from Athens that was inexplicably left behind as all their friends became mega-famous. Life isn't fair.
Video footage is from the silent film The Cabinet of Dr. Caligari (1920).
Danger - Pylon (1980)
About time for another Black Swan event, isn't it? I used this song in my "Black Swan" post titled It should be obvious, but it's not (from the lyrics).
