@statoj: Cool connection. Ever see the Vincent Van Gogh segment in Akira Kurosawa's "Dreams?" Pretty great part of the film. And Martin Scorsese plays Van Gogh himself, so hey.
Avatar 5:12pm statoj:

I only knew the Joni version. Nice to hear the original.
Avatar 5:12pm geezerette:

Favorite LH&R song!
Avatar 5:14pm statoj:

No, did not know that Kurosawa film. Will definitely check it out. Thanks!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:16pm Rob Kopp:

loked in book The originals by Arnold Rypens and that says the original is by the Wardell Gray Quartet ('49, on Prestige). Arnold's comment: psychic beat classic

( @djsheilab, i recall at one time being quite taken with Mika Nakashima. if you concur, it would be nice to hear her again in a future program .... )

Nifty. Gender-bent version of "Yakkity Yak" -- by the girls who did "Mr. Sandman," yet.

This Waitresses song has always caused me great anxiety.

Re: Pat Lewis 'No One To Love' -- also on my ever-increasing '45s unlikely that I'll ever find' list. Auctions for that approaching 3K? Whoa.

Sheila it will be my first "Swag for Life" pledge this October. thanks for being awesome and nerdy. I think our culture is so against people with true passions. WFMU is a haven for passionate dreamers!
