Songs from Swingin' Singles (Fill-in for Ameena)

Welcome Friday pitcrew! Ameena has the week off, so I'm stepping in to take an ill-advised ramble through the 7" vinyl stacks. Refresh the playlist to see the most recently-played songs (there's a lot of 'em!), and be sure to check in the DJ/Listener chat.

Chris Mohr 8:24:17 PM
"Hey, Tom Snyder" to the tune of "Hey, Bo Diddley."
Mike Lupica (host) 8:24:20 PM
Regardless of what I said about Killdozer being the best cover band ever, this Big Joanie song is probably the best cover of the last five years.
Mike Lupica (host) 8:24:45 PM
LOL Chris.
Mike Lupica (host) 8:27:01 PM
Which is funny because I don't think the Solange original is much more than five years old.

Impossible to tire of.
Chris Mohr 8:56:23 PM
WKCR at Columbia U. had an excellent African music show in the early 90s. I think that's where I first heard this
esoterica 8:57:07 PM
dude! hadn't heard tennessee in a loooong time. Thank YOU!
Mike Lupica (host) 8:57:32 PM
Nice. PRB was fortunate to get all those Ethiopiques comps -- blew lots of minds over the years.
Mike Lupica (host) 8:58:38 PM
Esoterica, are you referencing the Arrested Development track or the Jack Blanchard/Misty Morgan song? (Both "Tennessee" related, which was totally unintentional!
esoterica 8:58:52 PM
AD!!
Mike Lupica (host) 8:59:50 PM
Ahh, OK -- good. That is a relief. Because if I was getting appreciative comments from people for playing Jack Blanchard and Misty Morgan, I might have to rethink my life choices.
esoterica 9:00:01 PM
yes!!!!
esoterica 9:00:16 PM
she's blonde
Mike Lupica (host) 9:00:40 PM
Every time Esoterica walks into a room, X starts playing on the jukebox.

Jimbeaux, I think there are a few versions out there but mine's got Your Phone's Off the Hook (But You're Not)
esoterica 9:03:59 PM
hey how do i get my playlist to dance around and pop like that?
Mike Lupica (host) 9:04:38 PM
Chris, Mr. Mike was a total hero DJ to me. His show was where I may have first heard X!

In the parlance of Jimbeaux, I would do bad things for that farfisa.

Nothing like acknowledging that I'm playing too much old music and swearing that I'm going to go modern, and then playing... Dwight Twilley. #forthekids
Bo 9:25:24 PM
I was that kid :)
Mike Lupica (host) 9:25:40 PM
FACT: If you walk up to any cluster of 19-21 year olds on the street and ask them what they're talking about, the answer will almost always be "Dwight Twilley"

I should take back what I said. Captain Ahab would probably be really insulted by my associating her (godlike) show with Metallica. (Even old Metallica.)
Mike Lupica (host) 9:50:47 PM
