Sometimes I truly feel like I was born in the wrong time. I love all things mid-century. It used to be when I was really blue I'd listen to lowdown blue music, but now I listen to tap your foot, shake your booty music. And all of it is either old, or modern folks who are throwbacks. I dare you to listen to this and not bob your head and have fun. I DARE YOU!
JD McPherson - North Side Gal - JD McPherson is totally my husband. He just doesn't know it yet.
Billy Lee Riley - Red Hot - Any man that says, "Your gal ain't doodly squat" is keen in my book. Plus, remember way back when when I talked about men whose gals are so tall they sleeps in the kitchen with their feets out the door? CHECK!
Big Maybelle - I Ain't Mad At You - Just pause and listen to that voice. Yeah, you get it don't you? Big Maybelle owns a huge piece of my heart.
Big Mama Thornton - Rock Me - A little slower than the rest of them, but undeniably amazing.
Johnny Burnette - Honey Hush - Every time I sing the line, "Don't make me nervous, I'm holding a baseball bat" I feel like a badass.
Millie Small - My Boy Lollipop - I love the ska sounds of this song.
Wanda Jackson - Tongue Tied - Umm, it's Wanda Jackson. That's really all I can, or need to say.
The Cleftones - Little Girl Of Mine - One of my favorite uptempo doo wop songs. So good.
That's it for now kiddos. Rock out with your socks out.
Happy picture of the day: Loretta Lynn. Because Loretta Lynn makes me happy.
