Dancing out the month of May, 2014 with Las Kellies grooving the party. . .
"Sooner or later you'll learn - play with fire and you'll get burned!"
Sooner or Later
"Used to call me lucky. . ."
Bad Luck Is My Name
"My baby says I do nothing all day,
She says 'Get a day job Johnny. Earn some extra pay.'
I say 'Baby, baby, baby, I sing and play all night long -
When you first met me, you fell in love with my song!'" Elbows On Wheels
"I know I might not look like much. Guess the years have been a little rough."
I Want to Be Your One Night Stand
"Only if we give it away can love be love. . ."
Give It Away
"Don't want to escape to the moon even if the world went boom!"
I Don't Wanna Live On Mars
"I woke up this morning to a beautiful day! Pulled back the shades and felt the sun on my face!"
That L.A. Sunshine
"We are a lucky band!"
"She was born in a hurricane. . ."
Southern Part Of Texas
"Staring at the nail in the wall where your picture used to hang - trying to remember if the doorbell ever really rang?"
Nail in the Wall
No video yet, so here's some delicious aged cheese:
desserts and wines for the evening festivities:
"I've got one foot in the gutter and one foot kicking in the door to heaven"
One Foot in the Gutter
"Dodging bullets by the light of the moon."
"Now you're back from outer space. I just walked in to find you here with that sad look upon your face."
I Will Survive
"Lost in a dream, don't know which way to go."
"If you read my mind you'll see. . ."
Crazy For You
"One, Two, One Two Three!"
It's Good To Be Alive
"You could tell I was no debutante"
"Polished my shoes, I bought a brand new hat. Moved to a town that time forgot, where I don't have to shave or be approachable."
"I'm off to sing my boundless song."
Zigzagging Toward the Light
"It took centuries to build these twisted cities. It took seconds to reduce them down to dust."
Hundreds of Ways
Instrumental sunshine on a crowded beach. . .
No videos yet for the upbeat tunes. This is visual fun to hold us over:
"It seems like only yesterday you were with somebody else."
As Long as I Got You
"I'm finally in the studio and not in the kitchen."
Hard Out Here
"I said all my hail Mary's and blessings too, cross my heart and hope to die."
Boogie With The Devil's Soul
More summertime joy. . .
"Hardly hardly talk - hardly move move move"
"In the deserts of Sudan and the gardens of Japan"
Hit Me With Your Rhythm Stick
No Wallis version of "Stick" yet. Original 1978 version:
It's nice to be a lunatic!
You usually come here to find the best eartasting singles of the day. Once in awhile something special happens. You know these guys, and this CD has both fantastic sound and great performances. Hearing these acoustic executions of the hits, one can only wonder what was going on that they weren't officially released back in the day.
Get the CD while it's on sale. The mp3 version is inexplicably selling for twice the cost of the cd on Amazon today. Excellent value for powerful taste of musical history.
Carlos gave us a masterpiece with Shape Shifter (2012). Shape Shifter belongs in every home music library. The problem with masterpieces is they do not make money for the artists during their lifetime. So, we need the occasional foray into great journeyman level work by a master in the area of pop music.
The entire CD of Corazón (2014) is a fun way to spend an hour hearing a master field his way through every style of pop music thrown his way. There's no doubting his commitment to making everyone sound their absolute best.
Personally, I hope he makes enough cash from this sweet dessert to reward us with another full dinner masterpiece like Shape Shifter next time around. The eartaste pleasures from this CD:
"We celebrate! One voice, one heart, one soul! Here we go - that's all we we know!"
Dar Um Jeito (We Will Find A Way)
Just for fun:
Pitbull - We Are One (Ole Ola)
The whole experience:
One Love, One Rhythm - Official 2014 FIFA World Cup Album
This year slid by quick, and obviously we are on the cusp of summer because Neon Trees are using these tunes to announce loudly and proudly that the time is right for dancing in the street! Easy to join this eartaste party! Yep, this excitement needs those exclamation points! Silly lyrics ("I'm in the 21st century"), bouncing bass, yummy drums & flying rhythm guitars make for a bundle of snapping sunshine smiling on the sidewalks of our souls!
