Ah, Bunty has a sweet voice.
  9:44am Mark R.:

Have to say I'm not familiar with Bunty Pendleton. She sounds cool tho.
Avatar 9:45am Joe McG:

Hey Mark! Actually that was Terry Gibbs, not Lionel on that session!
Avatar 9:45am bobdoesthings:

I was interpreting this in a very dark way.. but now.. I think she's talking about something besides suicide.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:46am melinda:

Nice version of I Want You to Want Me. As I was listening I thought 'this is great! I wonder who it is...'
Avatar 9:46am βrian:

Oh, you people who listen to lyrics!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:47am melinda:

Bunty Pendleton is a good name.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:49am coelacanth:

i first thought it was about sleep, then about sex, then about sleep again.

BUNTY. is it a good name? keep saying it aloud..

Terry Gibbs was gangsta, too!

Avatar 10:08am Todd-o-phonic:

The weird thing about this version of "For Your Love" is ithat you would think it was the original version, but of course it's not.
Avatar 10:10am Joe McG:

Hey, Todd-o-phonic Todd! Johnny does play one curlicue of guitar at the end that's different.

Avatar 10:15am bobdoesthings:

when I'm having a badday.. I like to just think about soulja boy.. think about what he's up to..
Avatar 10:16am bobdoesthings:

Sometimes I like to pretend Soulja boy is just obsessing in the studio.. really re-inventing himself as an artist and discovering some unique new styles and will really WOW us all one day... then I just giggle uncontrollably
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:17am steve:

bob - im not kidding, i do the exact same thing with Master P and his hit "Make Em Say Uhhh"

I wish Master P and Soulja Boy would get together and do something special.

Does anyone have good Spanish? I suspect that the label on this record is wrong. This song seems to be about cha-cha-ing, not the southern star.

"Universe" is universal.

Joe, you are my fave

aside: s.stills song reminds me of g.nash, and while at <interferencearchive.org> exhibit called "if a song could be freedom...", i put on the 'no nukes' vinyl to hear g.nash sing 'cathedral'. extras points to the exhibit because they let you use the turntable!

Thanks Joe!

- by the way,bobdoesthings, soulja turned out to be a little too sophisticated for me. i'm just sticking with wfmu.

So nice to be listening to your show live today on the sneaky phone app! Very enjoyable as usual.

I just got my swag 2 days ago!! I heavily debated making a comical "WFMU Swag UNBOXING" video for youtube.. but was too excited and ripped open the packages when I got home.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:46am Greg from ZONE 5:

@bob: I was gonna do the same thing!! Great minds...
Avatar 11:47am bobdoesthings:

also debated that maybe that's too show-off-y.. since the swag is dependent on the $$ you pledge.. and I tend to go off the rails during marathon time

  11:49am Brendan:

Vashti what a beautiful song.
Avatar 11:52am bobdoesthings:

also I won the Kim Fowley technicolor grease LP.. (before rape allegations/stories came out) so there was another bit of internal conflict..
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:52am Greg from ZONE 5:

Could be! Maybe I thought I thought of it but it was the power of suggestion.

On this note—THANKS JOE for entering in all your song titles and artists. I usually have to cross my fingers every time I put a new premium in my computer.
