"Your Saturday Night" : THE WEEKEND MIX
Did we have fun? I know I did.
Great to see how many of us bought our records at Korvettes!
Two of you bought Shaun Cassidy's "Da Doo Ron Ron" as your very first record, and "Exile On Main Street" got the most votes for "Saturday Night" record. Out of everyone's choices for favorite record of all time, there was only one, Michael McDermott's self titled, where I hadn't heard a single note. That is at the top of my "to-do" list.
Great comments by everyone! Thank you. I hope you get a chance to read them all.
WHAT DO YOU SING IN THE SHOWER?
I don't always sing, but I tend to think along with "Norwegian Wood", to see if I can get in and out in two minutes. (I can't.)
WHAT IS YOUR FAVORITE SATURDAY NIGHT RECORD?
The Outlaws first album always hits the spot for me. Hey! Where did everyone go?
WHAT, IF PUSH COMES TO SHOVE, IS YOUR ALL-TIME FAVORITE ALBUM?
Rush - Permanent Waves (for sentimental reasons and youthful ideals...)
WHAT WAS THE FIRST RECORD YOU BOUGHT AND WHERE DID YOU BUY IT? IT was a 45-"Good Morning Starshine" by Oliver. It was bought somewhere in Sheepshead Bay in 1969. It skipped.
(Was it Rubber Band on Sheepshead Bay Rd. and Voorhees Ave.?)
WHAT MUSICIAN HAVE YOU EVER WANTED TO BE?
Leo Kottke - I'd love to be gifted with such natural drollery and to spin that kind of magic out of a 12-string guitar. Or Joe Strummer. Minus the being dead part.
But now...here is "Your Saturday Night" compiled and condensed into one 77 minute mix.
Maybe if we all put it on at exactly the same time on Saturday night, XTC will reunite for one more record. It's worth a try.
