Digging these sounds, Ms Wing. Where is everybody?

Did you(pl.) hear that Die Knoedel are back together with new material?
Avatar Wed. 8/1/18 12:32pm Mary Wing:

Hello maestroso, Henry, Listening, and doctorjazz! Glad you're all here!
Avatar Wed. 8/1/18 12:33pm JakeGould:

Hey Mary! This weather? OMFG, right?
Avatar Wed. 8/1/18 12:35pm Mary Wing:

OMG, Jake, I'm soaked in my own damn sweat here! Welcome to August!
Avatar Wed. 8/1/18 12:37pm JakeGould:

Yeah, at least I have AC at work.
Avatar Wed. 8/1/18 12:43pm Mary Wing:

Studio C has peculiar ventilation issues; sometimes it is too warm, and rarely ever too cold.
  Wed. 8/1/18 12:45pm rw:

Good morning! AC has been running here since 8am.
Avatar Wed. 8/1/18 12:47pm Mary Wing:

Good morning, rw! Is it super-humid out there, too?
  Wed. 8/1/18 12:48pm rw:

Not too humid. I'm sure it's worse where you are!
  Wed. 8/1/18 12:51pm rw:

Got the 100% Whatever premium the other day! For some reason I kept laughing as I was listening. Maybe it's just me but there seems to be a subtle undercurrent of humor.
Avatar Wed. 8/1/18 12:53pm Mary Wing:

Ooh, awesome! I suppose you could see humor in people spelling out words...
Avatar Wed. 8/1/18 12:56pm coelacanth∅:

greetings Mary and 100%ers
Avatar Wed. 8/1/18 12:59pm Mary Wing:

Hello coelacanth! Welcome to Wednesday whatever!
  Wed. 8/1/18 12:59pm rw:

I think the humor for me is just in the idea of collecting songs like that and in the surprise of hearing which songs come up. Plus the wide stylistic variation. My son asked, "Is this WFMU? Sometimes it's hard to tell" You know, Gwen Stefani and Peter Blegvad on the same mix tape.
Avatar Wed. 8/1/18 1:00pm geezerette:

Hello, Mary!
Sticky-hot here too. Yuck.
Avatar Wed. 8/1/18 1:00pm Mary Wing:

Heh heh, rw! That's too funny.

Hiya geezerette!!
Avatar Wed. 8/1/18 1:00pm coelacanth∅:

yeah, whatever...

Avatar Wed. 8/1/18 1:03pm βrian:

Good afternoon, fellow WingBats. It's a beautiful day on the isthmus.
Avatar Wed. 8/1/18 1:09pm coelacanth∅:

it's beautiful here. it rained earlier, which was and is beautiful. it's gaining humidity now but it's sunny and beautiful. i'm wearing jeans, which might have to change soon after i start working outside.
Avatar Wed. 8/1/18 1:11pm Mary Wing:

Hi there, Brian, glad some folks have good weather today!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 8/1/18 1:15pm Ike:

It's nice and cool... here inside the office, and I'm not going outside until I have to!
Avatar Wed. 8/1/18 1:16pm coelacanth∅:

Mary to be clear i'm <100 miles northeast of where you are. it's oppressively humid if you let it be. i'm prepared to do some detoxing today! beautiful!
Avatar Wed. 8/1/18 1:19pm coelacanth∅:

- speaking of which, though i hate to leave during vintage kraftwerk, i must.
work endless
Avatar Wed. 8/1/18 1:20pm northguineahills:

Nice and perfect here indoors. Although I need a new compressor for my car's A/C, and that's going cost an arm and two legs....
Avatar Wed. 8/1/18 1:21pm northguineahills:

oh, and hello fellow Wingers, (not Kip Winger, unless he's here too).
Avatar Wed. 8/1/18 1:26pm Mary Wing:

Hiya NGH! ACs are worth every penny, in my opinion.
  Wed. 8/1/18 1:26pm rw:

ngh it's tough to drive without legs. You'll have to sell that other arm to modify the car.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 8/1/18 1:27pm Ike:

Hopefully NGH can just sell somebody else's legs. Or *something* else's legs. He's in Florida. Are alligator legs worth much?
Avatar Wed. 8/1/18 1:29pm Mary Wing:

Hi there, Ike! Stay inside, definitely!
  Wed. 8/1/18 1:30pm rw:

Good idea Ike! I was picturing an armless, legless ngh driving an air conditioned car around Florida with his teeth.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 8/1/18 1:47pm fred:

Good afternoon Mary and all
Avatar Wed. 8/1/18 1:51pm Mary Wing:

Salut, fred!
Avatar Wed. 8/1/18 1:53pm northguineahills:

@Ike: The tails are worth a bit for meat (You can find gator tail at many restaurants).
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 8/1/18 2:06pm Webhamster Henry:

Ready for n-of-a-kind!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 8/1/18 2:06pm Webhamster Henry:

I like the With A Twist Version.
Avatar Wed. 8/1/18 2:07pm Mary Wing:

Does Todd covering himself count?
Avatar Wed. 8/1/18 2:08pm northguineahills:

if it's in caramel and whipped cream, it does....
Avatar Wed. 8/1/18 2:10pm Mary Wing:

Heh heh.
Avatar Wed. 8/1/18 2:10pm Sem:

I saw your light and heard ringing in my ears, so here I am, Mary. Hello, and greets to the 100%, and those to whom that does not apply.
Avatar Wed. 8/1/18 2:11pm northguineahills:

(I need to go get lunch soon).
Avatar Wed. 8/1/18 2:12pm βrian:

Gator tail?
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 8/1/18 2:12pm Spankyflop:

Didn't Yo La Tengo cover this for Michael Shelly's premium a few years ago?
Avatar Wed. 8/1/18 2:13pm northguineahills:

Thinking about a lox bagel, hopefully the bagel will be better then the others I've had here.
Avatar Wed. 8/1/18 2:14pm Mary Wing:

Hullo Sem and Spankyflop! Yes, the YLT version will be along soon.
Avatar Wed. 8/1/18 2:14pm geezerette:

Love the Weekly Earworm. :)
Avatar Wed. 8/1/18 2:16pm northguineahills:

Actually, gator tail is actually pretty tasty....
Avatar Wed. 8/1/18 2:17pm david w:

I had Elvis Costello on the brain all week. Let's see if this wipes it away.
Avatar Wed. 8/1/18 2:18pm coelacanth∅:

well...taking a short break from working already, and just in time! though i generally can't stand rundgren, i love the something/anything album, and very much this song. Terry Hall's voice is bland, but yet that's a pretty good version, in my opinion. bland is better than annoying .

(see? i brought some sunshine with me!)
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 8/1/18 2:19pm doctorjazz:

Nice versions, cool!
Hey Geez!
Avatar Wed. 8/1/18 2:20pm coelacanth∅:

(and todd covering todd does not count! and neither does Johnny Cash covering a completely different song called "i saw the light")
Avatar Wed. 8/1/18 2:21pm Mary Wing:

Hi David, just in time for new earworms!
Avatar Wed. 8/1/18 2:22pm northguineahills:

Bubba Hernandez, sounds like a third generation Cuban-American in north FL>
Avatar Wed. 8/1/18 2:22pm Mary Wing:

Heh. Well, coelacanth has spoken! No double Todd today! (But I'll put it in the archive, anyway.)
Avatar Wed. 8/1/18 2:22pm coelacanth∅:

(well, i don't make the rules. just the hopes)
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 8/1/18 2:23pm Webhamster Henry:

ehh - I have that version anyway. But I like anything that reeks of Bossa Nova.
  Wed. 8/1/18 2:23pm rw:

Double Todd!!
Avatar Wed. 8/1/18 2:24pm Mary Wing:

Or should we vote on twofer Todd?
Avatar Wed. 8/1/18 2:24pm coelacanth∅:

okay i like this one. beautiful voice and good singer.
Avatar Wed. 8/1/18 2:25pm coelacanth∅:

i know i'm outvoted! go for it!
Avatar Wed. 8/1/18 2:25pm geezerette:

Hiya, Doc!
  Wed. 8/1/18 2:26pm rw:

Nostalgia could be playing a part but so far I like the original best by a long shot.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 8/1/18 2:27pm Webhamster Henry:

A real minimal jazz combo version might be good. Like this, but without the string section!
Avatar Wed. 8/1/18 2:27pm coelacanth∅:

i've never heard rundgren's reworking of it but i'd bet that it could stain the memory of the original.
  Wed. 8/1/18 2:29pm Dean:

Listening at low volume, I was guessing this was Daryl Hall, which would make sens.
Avatar Wed. 8/1/18 2:29pm northguineahills:

Same here Henry, although I never heard the original until around 2000.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 8/1/18 2:30pm fred:

@ngh: I don't think I had heard it before today
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 8/1/18 2:31pm Webhamster Henry:

100% Music appreciation class!
Avatar Wed. 8/1/18 2:32pm northguineahills:

Thanks Mary, off to lunch!
Avatar Wed. 8/1/18 2:32pm northguineahills:

The name says what they are, I like that!
  Wed. 8/1/18 2:33pm rw:

later ngh!
Avatar Wed. 8/1/18 2:36pm geezerette:

Such an inescapably 70s composition. Early 70s pop has this weird melancholy nostalgia in it and I can't pin down what for. Reluctance to grow up? Desire to retreat from shocks of 60s? Don't know.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 8/1/18 2:38pm Webhamster Henry:

Too bad there aren't a lot of covers of Dean Friedman's "Ariel".
Avatar Wed. 8/1/18 2:40pm david w:

The basic song is fine pop, but Todd's bassline and production make the original fly.
Avatar Wed. 8/1/18 2:41pm Sem:

Hmm, Scottish soul music to complement Scottish Average White Band disco. Curious, and fun.
Avatar Wed. 8/1/18 2:42pm coelacanth∅:

i've never met a person named ariel who'd heard of that song. (though i've only met 2 people named ariel!)
Avatar Wed. 8/1/18 2:45pm βrian:

Ariel? Full-fathom-five Ariel?
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 8/1/18 2:45pm Webhamster Henry:

I now have to pull up this Murray XMas special - good for a hot summer day!
Avatar Wed. 8/1/18 2:46pm coelacanth∅:

unmistakable yo la voice
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 8/1/18 2:46pm Webhamster Henry:

Friedman's Ariel is a braless peasant blouse-wearing Jerseyite.
Avatar Wed. 8/1/18 2:48pm coelacanth∅:

i've dated a few ariels
(who's names weren't ariel)
  Wed. 8/1/18 2:48pm rw:

Had to look up Friedman. I know at least one woman named Ariel but don't think I'd ever heard that song. Sounds like Billy Joel to me.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 8/1/18 2:50pm fred:

Avatar Wed. 8/1/18 2:50pm coelacanth∅:

i've listened to the album that ariel appears on and have never been compelled to listen to it again (which makes sense if he's like Billy Joel) but that song is a great one
Avatar Wed. 8/1/18 2:55pm geezerette:

Thanks, Mary!
Avatar Wed. 8/1/18 2:55pm david w:

Good fun, beautifully chosen. Thanks Mary!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 8/1/18 2:56pm fred:

Thanks Mary!
  Wed. 8/1/18 2:58pm rw:

Wow. Time flies. Thanks Mary! Later everyone!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 8/1/18 2:59pm Webhamster Henry:

Thanks Mary and for the Whatever conversation!

Listeners: Ridgewood's going to be good today!
Avatar Wed. 8/1/18 2:59pm coelacanth∅:

Thanks Mary!
Avatar Wed. 8/1/18 2:59pm Mary Wing:

Time flies, thanks for listening this week!
  Tue. 8/7/18 12:47pm clueless:

Surely the fact that you think playing the same song 14 times in a row makes for good radio is why you're not on the main schedule anymore. The dumb feature always infuriated me. A person gets a chance to host their own radio show, and then they submit the listener to this kind of torture. You're a joke. Best give it up now.
