Flash Strap's avatar View Flash Strap's profile Options

This is where all of culture and all of time are collapsed into one seductive portal and viewed through the panoramic lens of the exotic. Come and embark on an armchair-travel virtual-voyage to the heart of timeless darkness and beyond; embrace the numinous monolith of the exotic immensity. Let us find that place where hybridization meets its destiny as pure fantasy. Let us become observers observing those others who are ourselves. You wear your mask and I'll wear mine.

Bacharach heard background singing. Where did I learn that?
Avatar Thu. 3/3/16 8:08pm Flash Strap:

what do you mean, Rabbit?
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 3/3/16 8:11pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

'Sha La Las' on 'Baby It's You' - you can hear Bacharach's voice. Couldn't remember where I learned that - but I think it was local program on Vermont Public Radio called 'My Place' about early Rock/Pop history...
Avatar Thu. 3/3/16 8:11pm Flash Strap:

this one written by Kenney Young, aka Sgt. Smiley Raggs, who wrote Undder the Boardwalk
Avatar Thu. 3/3/16 8:12pm Flash Strap:

oh, that's cool. He definitely wrote the music to that one. The lyrics are by the buy who wrote Bibbidy Bobbidy Boo, incidentally

a great one - but my fave is out in the streets

I fond it very real and old-guy comical...in the way it portrays teenage end-of-the-world drama so exactly correctly.

that's a dear one, too
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Thu. 3/3/16 8:19pm melinda:

@RevRabbit: when I lived in Vermont I thought My Place was the best thing on VPR. Great tidbit about Bacharach. I should try streaming the show sometime.

@melinda: They have a 24-hour stream of 'My Place' & 'All the Traditions' (which is like the downhome Vt version of a 'Shrunken Planet' Folk show & some World Music) :
Avatar Thu. 3/3/16 8:23pm Flash Strap:

this song borders on a hate crime, but I'm not sure who the primary victim is

i don't think there's any one, really

I hope we hear the sequel to Mr. Lee.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 3/3/16 9:39pm Uncle Michael:

Part of "Mr. Lee" was/is(?) the theme music for Frank E. Lee's show on WXRT in Chicago.
