Hello, Sheilab! We will try to kick that last 6.3% to the curb with all the good music and good vibes. So glad it is Friday!

Hi Sheila! The good news... I've been psyched for this all day. The bad news... I think I may be getting whatever you had. Is something going around NYC? Or maybe just among people with exquisite taste in music?

This Holly Macve track is really cool. However do you come upon a self-released bedroom demo? Did you record it in the bedroom yourself?

Hall & Oates. Fyeah. Philly in the house.

Hall & Oates is always soooo welcome!

OMG I was doing a fill-in a few months ago and I mentioned that Hall & Oates were a guilty pleasure of mine. I played something from a tribute album by the Bird & the Bee.

This sketch from Big Train sort of ruined Hall & Oates for me www.youtube.com...
  Fri. 12/4/15 3:18pm modchick65:

@The Contessa... he wouldn't take me to Live Aid, either, but he did take me to see my 5th grade boyfriend, Rick Springfield on the Success Hasn't Spoiled Me Yet tour the night before my 11th birthday, so I can't really complain. At all. :)
Avatar Fri. 12/4/15 3:19pm djsheilab:

@Mark R. That Bird & the Bee tribute is brill. You can hear how much Hall & Oates have influenced their latest record.

Avatar Swag For Life Member    Fri. 12/4/15 3:47pm Baumer!:

Every time i hear this I always hope that a Chuck will slip in there somehow. This also reminded me of the Clapping Song, which Tom Waits takes lines from in Clap Hands which always intrigued me.

@djsheilab: My favorite '60s Brit girl single — "While I'm Still Young," by Yvonne!

@sheilab -- I looked at the playlist from 2 weeks ago you spun ann margret 'someday soon', neil sedaka 'too late', and tom jones 'looking out my window' -- props! Especially for that Sedaka.

I have a soft spot for the pop star 45s that cross over to the northern/popcorn scene... another good one is Andy Williams 'house of bamboo' ... and my personal fave Paul Anka 'I Can't Help Loving You'. And I'm trying to find the Boots Randolph northern 45...and the Glenn Yarbrough northern 45. And recently found the Streisand northern 45...finally!

Smashing Time - one of my FAVORITE movies! Your selections, mixes, and segues are really good. I used to have a women's arts show on WBAI - wish I had had your library back then.

@djsheilab: One Halloween, Kathleen dressed up perfectly as the made-over-for-pop-stardom Yvonne from Smashing Time — literally no one knew who she was supposed to be! I was so proud of her!

Since the topic did come up today, I am curious what the most expensive record ever played on WFMU is.

Sharon g- yes! I love Rita Tushingham. She hasn't had many lighthearted moments in her movies so Smashing Time is kinda unique.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 12/4/15 4:00pm JakeGould:

@Baumer!: I would guess that Herb Alpert and the Tijuana Brass LP, “Whipped Cream and Other Delights” right?

I call it "star search" singing - which was the show that was the "modern" precursor to all the current talent shows on TV. EVERY singer had to do the crazy oversinging.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 12/4/15 4:04pm JakeGould:

@common: That’s why it’s worth so much money.
  Fri. 12/4/15 4:04pm sharon g:

Have you ever heard "Doing It Wrong" by Anita Blay? It was the theme song to a BBC TV show called Some Girls (great show, GREAT song). I think you would dig it.
  Fri. 12/4/15 4:04pm Mark R.:

I agree with you about melisma--but I'm OK with Aretha doing it. I just think she's the only one allowed to do it. I still think"Dr. Feelgood" and "I Never Loved A Man" are some of the most amazing pop/soul songs ever recorded. Actually, between 1967-72 she could do no wrong imo. But "Sweet Bitter Love" is cool, too, and like so many records you play, I hadn't heard it before! You've turned me on to a lot of cool tuneage.

I remember Now & Then Records in Hazlet had multiple copies of the Smashing Time soundtrack. I wonder if they ever sold any? I also wonder if anybody truly thought that movie was funny!

DJ Duo Zed's Dead put heart rate monitors on some of their fans at a show and recorded the results. I wonder what would happen if that was done to us listening to Sophisticated Boom Boom.

No movie with Rita Tushingham is truly funny. She brings a sadness with her wherever she goes.

That's certainly true of "Girl with Green Eyes"--which also co-starred Lynn Redgrave!

It's those eyes.

Green Eyes was part 2 of the same adventure (also w/ Tushingham) but it REALLY was not a comedy. I liked Smashing Time better.

if you have a spare $400 to spend on Susan Barrett 45s, look for "What's It Gonna Be" on RCA.

I don't agree with the late '00s vs the late '90s quote at all. There's a lot of it. I really don't like much 90s music. It's much better now.

I was at a Simon Reynolds reading and I had the impression, it's just another lamenting about pop loosing it's "revolutionary" relevance.

What amazes me is I spent the early 60s listening to 3 or 4 hours of New York radio "hit" station each night and I never heard of 80% of the artists that sheila plays from the 60s on this show . was I in the wrong town? I grew up believing NY was the center of the universe. (Luckily I lived long enough to learn about the Big World of music out there, thanks to Sheilab!)

Lots of groups made money playing, money spent recording and making records was simply meant as PR. Not many bands make off of concert money these days!

I think the movie was Shoot the Moon. The characters did a live version. Of the song.

This sing is from The Sweet originally.

Nick Cave was once asked what was his 'getting ready to go out' music and he deadpanned: "Arvo Pärt."

Some Fridays I think a mellow set is good. Especially depending on what the weather is. That said I do love me some good stompers

Stereolab! Time for a Stereolab revival? Or too soon?

Man, I love Stereolab!

Simon Reynolds would hate this Miriam song. His loss.

Cindy Cole...wow, another great new discovery courtesy Sophisticated Boom Boom! I'm glad for 3 hours of my week I can pretend to be sophisticated!

Hehe...@Gaylord not a lot of love for Simon Reynolds in this crew.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 12/4/15 5:16pm northguineahills:

Tim Gane's new band is actually pretty good. Sort of Stereolabby, but that's a good thing.

@TOPT Cindy Cole was Jeannie from Jeannie & the Big Guys!

@djsheilab: I actually agree with his premise in Retromania quite strongly — I'm just not on board with his conclusion that popular music must go forward to be enjoyable. (Full disclosure: I used to work alongside Simon at a music magazine, and think he's a really good thinker and writer both.)
Avatar Fri. 12/4/15 5:27pm statoj:

I must go. See you all next Friday!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 12/4/15 5:28pm Gaylord Fields:

And I look to music for enjoyment, not cultural progress.

@The Contessa - Hi, how are things in your area tonight? It's a balmy evening north of New York City here. I was at a work event earlier and just tuned in.

@djsheilab you totally need to post photos of that jacket!

that was the best song transition ever
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 12/4/15 5:42pm Carmichael:

Contrary to popular belief, the Parsons Project was not a bunch of studio musicians. In addition to Eric Woolfson and Parsons, the nucleus of the band was Ian Bairnson, David Paton and Stuart Tosh (all from the band Pilot, which Parsons produced). All but Tosh (replaced by Stuart Elliott from Cockney Rebel) remained through the last album Gaudi, and even into the all-but-in-name album fiasco Freudiana.

@sugarplum fairywolf: Is a Baby Birkin like a Baby Bjorn, but it retails for $50,000?
