Time zone: central
Flying Machine “Smile a Little Smile For Me”
from 20th Century Rocks: 60's Pop - Those Were the Days (K-Tel 2001) —This song always reminds me of George Harrison - it's his kind of melody, I think, and the lead singer has a similar voice.
Dear John “Frustrated Conversation”
from single (BDR 2011) N L —The reissue of this fine St. Louis pop gem originally out back in 1981, and the first ever issue of music from the Retros, the St. Louis band that opened for the Ramones back in 1979, will be celebrated next Friday, Dec. 23 at Off Broadway. I can't wait!
Phonocaptors “Little Queenie”
from Brown Eyed Handsome Man: St. Louis Salutes The Father Of Rock 'N' Roll (Undertow 2004) L —I love the way they rocked the heck out of this one.
Irma Thomas “It's Raining”
from Time Is On My Side: The Best of Irma Thomas Vol. 1 (EMI 1992) —This is not an accurate representation of today's weather, but come on, it's Irma Thomas singing Allen Toussaint!
The Drifters “Drip Drop”
from Let the Boogie-Woogie Roll: Greatest Hits 1953-1958 (Atlantic 1998) —Some song seques require virtually no thought.
