this is a great version of "Rumble"
Avatar Sat. 12/31/16 1:05pm Wolf Barber From Frankfurt:

Happy new year Rex! Best wishes from Frankfurt.
Avatar Sat. 12/31/16 1:06pm Mailman Tom:

The photo of Roxanne Arlen and "Rumble" go very well together.
  Sat. 12/31/16 1:14pm em2l:

They got the songwriting credits mixed up with the "West Side Story" version of "Rumble" -- ha!
Avatar Sat. 12/31/16 1:16pm Mailman Tom:

I see that she was in an episode of Naked City. I'll be getting out my box set to watch it.

What a bunch of shitty friends. Just a matchbox of weed would have been enough.
Avatar Sat. 12/31/16 1:33pm amira:

I wish they'd played this during DARE when I was in 5th grade.
  Sat. 12/31/16 1:34pm Tommy Jack Haynes:

Box is vague....what did it weigh ?
  Sat. 12/31/16 1:36pm pottybear:

Where does meth fit in to the incendiary device?

Forget the movie version of "The Loved One"! It's an idiot version of Evelyn Waugh's sardonic novel "The Loved One", which is SO much more intelligent !

...always interesting to hear what gets done w/ a Standard like 'Money'. Like somebody said : makes sense a significant label was called 'Chess' - because it's like the game chess - you can learn the form pretty quick - but Mastery...
Or put it another way: When the Tune is simple, that when you better Bring It - cause you ain't left w/ much else otherwise...
  Sat. 12/31/16 2:24pm Pete:

Hey, for the Idols song "The Prowler," does anyone know offhand what music the opening notes are from?
I've heard it in, like, a zillion old cartoons & used in other songs, but I never knew where it originated... and it drives me a little crazy, haha...
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sat. 12/31/16 2:30pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

Yeah Pete - that riff always signifies the Mortician & such...Dance of the Funeral Puppets?...good question! - I dunno...
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sat. 12/31/16 2:36pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

...no - I'm think 'The Funeral March of a Marionette (Marche fun├Ębre d'une marionnette) - a short piece by Charles Gounod. It was written in 1872'
- but that's the Hitchcock theme!...

Keep it comin!

The last "no brow" of 2016!!!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sat. 12/31/16 2:47pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

...it goes :
Em-G-B-Em (higher octave)
C-B-A-G-F#-Em ...as it were
...It occurs to me TheMunsters' theme is based on it (?) - but not even this helps me Googles it...

Arnold Stang to Ross (one of my fave parts of the show every week). Last 2 sets murdered me!

Hey! This cultural stuff is great!

Thanks, DJ Rex, for another no-brow year of Fool's Paradise. We dig it the most, Baby.
