the Appalachian folksong this comes from probably has its roots in the British Isles, probably a child ballad. so this song has definitely been around

@Bronwyn & Fred: I agree with you both, but I'll check out BB's 8/28/17 fill-in on the archives because I don't really have a life.

I like this cover very much.

I rely on the archives to stay in touch with FMU. One of the amazing things about FMU.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:57pm doctorjazz:

That will be covering for Kim Sorice/Global Grease...sometimes get to listen to it, try to check it out! (hard to get to much in the archives-I have an old Radio Thrift Shop up on my computer, Laura Cantrell interviews Glen Campbell, but didn't get a chance all day to listen, too much live stuff to catch...)

I use my phone, WFMU app (but it uses data and I'm already over for the month with half of it left, internet-active kids.)
Avatar 4:59pm Will from Seattle:

that Malika track reminded me of this Iranian cover of Don't be Cruel I heard on WFMU a while ago

mid 60s I think, same time as the British Invasion.

Avatar 5:15pm Brian Cat:

Title :"I Don't Mind"? Don't recognize the melody, but it was a catchy pop song.

Rita Pavone is another great Italian girlpop singer from the 60s

I saw that! Made me smile! Great show!
Avatar 5:45pm Brian Cat:

Yes, mostly correct. Heard this track on Ultrachicks which Trouble used to play selections from. Also heard this on a TV commercial. Great arrangement and performance. Thank you Sheila! Pussy Cat doing 3 part harmony!

@Adrian in London That Tara Jane O'Neill record is just divine. So mellow n' melancholy.

I thought she said "Cakey Love"
Avatar 5:48pm Cecile:

It's actually way worse now that I can hear the right title.
Avatar 5:48pm djsheilab:

@Cecile At least it's not a duet with her father.
Avatar 5:49pm geezerette:

So she's ...resigned?
Avatar 5:49pm KP:

Is this about Kinky Friedman?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:49pm Adrian in London:

@Sheila I've been playing it to death on Spotify but need it with crackles and pops. By the way, there was a new Grouper track this week on Bandcamp. ALSO I know youve played it on your show but the Lush version of Kinky Love is SO GOOD!
Avatar 5:50pm Cecile:

Yes. That is a good thing, @djsheilab

as we were trying out the same tune on her gift Wii game. Thanks a lot, Sony!
