This is one of those times where I found myself wanting to hear specific songs---"We're For The Dark," probably Badfinger's finest moment, "Guitars & Women," where Rick Derringer gets the full-on Todd Rundgren makeover, and "Beggar's Day," the Nils Lofgren lead from my new favorite album, "Crazy Horse"---and one thing led to another.
I can't explain why the Badfinger track reminded me of "Art School Canteen" by 5cc, Godley & Creme. Or why that made me go for Iggy & Bowie's "Sister Midnight." As with all of the Weekend Mixes though, it all sounded good together.
A tip of the hat to JAG, who pointed out in one of last week's Beach Boys posts, that a superb a cappella version of "Kiss Me, Baby" existed out there on the out of print "Hawthorne, CA." CD. I've since played it 32 times. I think it may be out my system.
Have a great weekend. Songs of the week, tomorrow. Plenty more next week, as I'm sure something will annoy me.
