Uncle Michael's avatar View Uncle Michael's profile Options

Turning over the toy box and jamming together the gloriously mismatched musical Lincoln Logs, Legos and Tinker Toys from Tin Pan Alley pluggers, pickled egg tavern weepers, lockstep soul ensembles, skinny-tie power poppers, Eurotrash ravers, moontanned art school rockers, drunken soccer anthems and anything else that seems like a good idea at the time. There are no guilty pleasures.

for some reason this makes me wonder if the Tiger Lilies ever covered ABBA...

Most models I've seen showing Ophelia turning extratropical yet remaining intact w/ Cat 1 winds when it kisses the emerald isle.

The Sex Pistols should've covered ABBA.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 10/13/17 11:03am northguineahills:

Lush, a fave of mine! (This is a abba cover? Never knew, and I've had this album since I was 16.)

I have an idea for an upcoming show UM: Artists doing their own songs in foreign languages.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Fri. 10/13/17 11:14am Uncle Michael:

It' such a good idea that it's been done often...not often by me. It's been at least one DJ's marathon premium.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 10/13/17 11:14am northguineahills:

This is an actual Abba song I honestly really like.

My wife just started working with a guy named Fernando...every time she takes or covers one of his classes, I start singing the ABBA song. Now she's mad at me cuz she can't talk to the guy without humming the song in her head. Love that song, man.

Mike!

I would do the same, Mike!

Although I also have the Arrested Development scene permanently tattooed in my brain w/ Fernando playing as well.
  Fri. 10/13/17 11:26am dan:

The next songwriters you should focus on are: Richard and Robert Sherman, Stephen Sondheim, Andrew Lloyd Webber, Holland/Dozier/Holland

Most of my wife's friends in Mexico don't like spicy foods (she does). They were surprised a gringo like me guzzled salsa picante down.

The lead singer of this band reminds me of Liam Gallagher.

so did the singer just sing "WICKTORY?"

I put chili pepper in most things I cook, thought I don't care for intense heat. It needs to be in balance.

And thanks for the great tunes this morning, UM!

This is cool! Have you heard the Any Trouble version of Name of the Game? And thanks Doctor!
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Fri. 10/13/17 11:49am Uncle Michael:

Yes, Larry. Some songs, there were so many versions to choose from.
Avatar Fri. 10/13/17 11:50am βrian:

Tabasco is American but it's made only 10 minutes away from New Iberia, so that counts as Spanish to me.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Fri. 10/13/17 11:50am Funky16Corners:

I was shocked when I picked up the album. It also has a live version of Springsteen's 'Growing Up'

Nills Landgren and Tobasco Sauce
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 10/13/17 11:56am northguineahills:

I like intense heat every now and while, if there also good flavor present. Not a fan capsaicin extracts, only natural pepper sauces.

Yeah, if I can't taste the food anymore what's the point?

I recall hearing a version of S.O.S. on WFMU several years ago, I believe it was from that Abba-salutely comp. I remember it having a really cool marching beat on the snare drum that knocked me out.
