That Chris Isaak song is one of my guilty pleasures. (BTW the album was Heart Shaped World)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:19pm Bronwyn Bishop:

This album always makes me think of riding around in the backseat of my parents' car while they played this CD
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:19pm rsj:

somehow i knew there wasn't going to be that screaming lady

ahh, the memories of Helena Christiansen (sp?)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:20pm fred:

@rsj: Pipilotti Rist was in Les Reines Prochaines at the time, I've always hoped she was the one screaming, but I really don't know
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:21pm Adrian in London:

@rsj I *love* 'that screaming lady' version.
  3:21pm Mark:

Still a great tune. Fuck the hipsters if they can't take a joke.

I'll always have a soft spot for the silly version of this song on the Beach Boys Party album with the BBs and all their friends howling this at the top of their lungs

i'm always kind of disappointed when the lady starts screaming

@Adrian: my favorite cover ever

Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:23pm Grok-o-matic:

Just recently found an old CD someone made me with 4 discs of 60s girl groups soul and doowop. Totally forgot about it. Never got to listen to it. This is definitely making me glad I found it. I'll have to convert it to audio discs and check it out.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:23pm Parq:

I think that may be the first time I've ever heard the Isaak original on FMU. The Les Reines was such an FMU hit that I didn't even know for a year that it was a cover at all.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:24pm Grok-o-matic:

Woah, this Beverly Jones track is killer diller.

... arggghh ... Swiss ... I should have known ... it was on of Ken's "Swiss" shows.

Cut. Paste.

Nice cover version of the Chris Isaak song, starts out relatively normal, adds great background screaming in the second half. From the album Le Coeur En Beurre - Doublegras, featuring Pipilotti Rist, who also produced a video of this song.

DJ Scott also plays a fantastically horrible version of Wicked Game by Wing. I think it was on one of his premiums, but pretty sure he's played it during his show.

@fred: I've seen two of her exhibitions in London in the past few years. Her video work, on huge screens, with surround sound and big bean bags to lie down and lose yourself in the visuals, are amazing.
Avatar 3:46pm djsheilab:

@Fred I think there may be a Lynch theme going on! I'm kinda obsessed with how brilliantly he can transition between the depths of hell + joy.
Avatar 3:48pm The Contessa:

Can't we all?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:48pm fred:

@Adrian: That's one way they work, not the only one. I did see one projected on a plaza, looking from a few floors above. But also a great one years ago, set up as an (oversized) apartment with the small video screens hidden in drawers, on the back of chairs, even on a bottle's label. Big ones too. Ever Is Over All was on a room of its own, it may be my fave. I had a T-shirt made with a still of that smiling woman smashing a car window with a flower

Thanks for all your donations FOLKS! Glad I managed to pronounce your name correctly @James, considering I can't pronounce anyone else's name right.

I hate Andrew Lloyd Webber mostly, but this is one of the best musical theatre songs ever written. And this version is great.
Avatar 4:49pm Todd-o-phonic:

@Bronwyn: Al Jardine did a talk the other week and told us that "Beach Boys Party" is being re-issued this year with bonus tracks! Hopefully more Rivingtons songs!

@Guido-- Googoosh was the biggest pop star in pre-revolution Iran. And that's her Jesus Christ Superstar cover.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:53pm chris:

hey, djsheilab! just wanted to shout out... missing most of your great show because my work is dumb... "googoosh" = awesome band name!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:53pm Guido from Cologne:

ah .. it is!
I wasn't sure!
Joy Holden is awesome!

Avatar 5:00pm Claw!:

Sounds like *someone* is a woman now...
Avatar 5:01pm BEAVO:

I would bet Googoosh aint' singing the Tim Rice lyrics about Jesus, she just stole the melody. It was probably impossible to collect royalties from Iran.

they are a good live group
i know then as more stoner-rock like,
but some great songs
Avatar 5:12pm BEAVO:

I like the bizarre juxtaposition of styles here, Megadeth and the Dixie Cups
Avatar 5:13pm Todd-o-phonic:

Best version ever of "Iko Iko" was performed by 3 women hanging at the bar at "The Sit On It Bar" in Philadelphia a good # of July 4th's ago. I believe they did the raunchier "My frat boy says he's going to set your ass on fire" version....
Avatar 5:14pm Todd-o-phonic:

Hope it's okay to say "ass" on the comments board!

Avatar 5:20pm Jeff:

I remember hearing (perhaps from Vin Scelsa) that some version of a "Witch Queen" / Marie Laveau song was a top hit at WFMU in the 1960s.
  5:21pm Tommy:

Great story. I get caught with porn ( not at school) when I was about 7 or so. I was expecting severe punishment. My dad just made a joke out of it. Guess he was relieved I was normal.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:22pm common:

Nice picture with Ozzy. Yer super cute!
Avatar 5:38pm Jesse K:

Is that the Ervinna record that Witch Queen of New Orleans song came from?
Avatar 5:39pm djsheilab:

@Jesse K It's from a compilation called Halloween Nuggets. But I put up the original sleeve cos it's much cooler looking : )
Avatar 5:40pm Jesse K:

Yeah, totally agree! She has so many LPs with the stylers I can't keep them straight which is which.
Avatar 5:41pm djsheilab:

Sorry I'm not responding to all the comments! Far too many short songs to manage. Arrrrggghhh!!!
