Bone Awful Album Covers

Alright, alright.

I know, I posted
about music yesterday.

But, when the spirit
takes ya, man…..

And you can’t tell me
you didn’t enjoy those
vintage …
errrr..
ummm…..
classics
.

Something about a
dirty ditty with
amorous attitude
that makes me happy….

Maybe it’s just the
knowledge that there
are more filthy minded
people out there
other than me.

Lemme tell you…
It’s easy to forget.

Ahem.

Today, it’s another edition
of our horrible album
cover collection.

And now,
new and improved
with even
more uber-horrible.

But first,
ask yourself this
very important question-

where would we all be
without bad talking
puppet albums?

Fuck if I know.

Alright —
here’s one I can answer.

This guy calls himself
Li’l Richard for what two reasons?

Ok,
one – to distinguish him
from the real Little Richard

and:

two – so he doesn’t have
to call himself Li’l Dick.

He lets his wife do that.

I kid ole Li’l Dick…

but seriously.

Poor Jenny.

That is one ugly
fake-black eye
she almost has there.

Hoelee moelee.

I bet that guy who is
fake-running did it.

Maybe.

Hey–

I do know one thing
for absolute sure ….

It just wouldn’t be an
ugly album cover post
without one from this Yugoslavian guy.

Ok, so he’s not exactly
photogenic, but he damn
sure wrote a lot of music.

He just needed
somebody else
to design his album covers.

Of course, sometimes
stuff just don’t translate,
and I understand that.

Like Cock Van Der Palm
singing ‘Goodbye My Love’.

Here in the U.S.,
we might, very courteously, suggest that if he kept his
palms off his-self, he might
not have to say
goodbye to anybody.

Hooo boy.

.

 

Droppin Your Pumpy Pants

Adult Content Warning:
— if you’re at the office
or the kids are home,
turn your speakers down.

Don’t get all butt hurt
and mad at me, please…

I’m in the mood for music,
and not just any music, either.

Today we’re featuring songs
that may have eluded
your attention, because
they weren’t getting
a lot of air play.

Well, you’ll see
what I mean.

Ahem.

I’m personally fond of dogs,
and I’ve never claimed to
understand a cat lover’s
mentality, exactly.

That said, this musical innuendo
may not help explain anything at all.

.

I dunno if I’ve ever heard
a doo-wop song that ever
made so much sense as
this next one…… although,
personally, I think talk is
over-rated.

.

This next piece reminds me
of my own mantra
“Ride It Like You Stole It “…..

But, hers is a bit different.

.

And of course, who can really
argue with this lady’s viewpoint?

.

It’s getting around the Holiday,
so maybe this one is appropriate, I dunno.

.

Things can be a little easy,
or a little rough….
Things can be a little roomy,
or just a little tough.

.

I have no way of knowing how much
y’all are enjoying these things —

and so maybe you’re ready
for this one,
and maybe you’re not.

.

And, yes, finally
we end our post with
this piece from the early 1980’s.

At least this one seems to have a
more achievable objective,
so, there’s that.

Sunday Morning Music

Hi
and Welcome !

Our theme today
is Love.

I’m sorry,
but to me,
love is everything –

without it,
life is just
eating, working
and sleeping.

The ancient Greeks
thought that
there were 8 types of love:

“Eros” or Erotic Love,
“Philia” or Affectionate Love,
“Storge” or Familiar Love,
“Ludus” or Playful Love,
“Mania” or Obsessive Love,
“Pragma” or Enduring Love,
“Philautia” or Self Love,
and “Agape” or Selfless Love.

— Whatever your favorite flavor,
I hope you’re awash in it !

Here’s some music to go with it.

.

George Harrison —
” Love Comes To Everyone ”

.

Talking Heads —
” Love Comes To Town ”

.

Carl Carlton —
” Everlasting Love ”

.

Celine Dion —
” Love Doesn’t Ask Why ”

.

Fleetwood Mac —
” Big Love ”

.

Lou Rawls —
” You’ll Never Find Another Love Like Mine”

.

Haircut 100 —
” Love Plus One ”

.

Stevie Wonder —
” I Just Called To Say Hello ”

.

Blondie —
” I’m Gonna Love You Too ”

.

Evelyn King —
“Love Come Down ”

.

Lydia Pense and Cold Blood–
” I Just Want To Make Love To You”

.

Frank Sinatra —
” Love Is Here To Stay ”

.

John Lennon —
” Real Love ”

.

Elvis Presley —
” Can’t Help Falling In Love With You”

.

ABC —

.

.

Santana (w Michelle Branch) —
” The Game Of Love ”

.

Love Unlimited —
” Love’s Theme ”

.

Sunday Morning Music

Hiya !
Nice to see you!

Today’s request day
on the Sunday Morning
Music Post —
and we’ve some
great ones lined up !

For instance:

The lovely Mrs. Fever had a
couple fun ideas :

The Cars
” Just What I Needed ”

.

Simon and Garfunkel —
” Hazy Shade of Winter ”

.

Heather wanted a couple of
wonderful vintage pieces:

America:
“Ventura Highway”

.

Ten Years After:
“I’d Love to Change the World”

.

and The Hollies:
“The Air that I Breathe”

.

My friend C mentioned this one:
Beach Boys :
” I Wasn’t Born For These Times ”

.

My pal Katie suggested this next one,
— and it’s a goodie.

Eric Clapton —
” Promises ”

.

My buddy Scooter wanted this one:
Beach Boys :
” Don’t Worry Baby ”

.

and DSS wanted more
Ruby Starr :
“Did It Again  ”

.

I got a nice email from a lady
who’d like to hear more
Van Morrison:
” Wild Honey ”

.

Van Morrison :
” It’s All In The Game ”

.

Ok….

I think I’m caught up with
requests …. so let’s see what
else I can work up here….

When you’re ready for
a song to stir your soul,
Ole Blue Eyes has a whole
catalog of music
that’ll fill the bill.
Like this one:

Frank Sinatra —
I’ve Got You Under My Skin

.

Diane Shuur can put notes together
that most singers would never attempt-

And you can see what I mean in this piece.

Diane Shuur —
Louisiana Sunday Afternoon

.

I remember when
Maurice White
passed last year..
what a loss.

Earth, Wind and Fire —
All In The Way

.

A lyric that can resound
with just about anyone
makes for a memorable song:

“Being without you
is all a big mistake,
instead of getting any easier,
it’s the hardest thing to take ”

Chicago — ” Hard Habit To Break

.

Here’s a very cool piece —

It’s very down-beat,
and there’s something
about the saxophone
that makes it really
move you.

Illinois Jacquet —
Harlem Nocturne

.

Speaking of Jazz…
Yeah, sure we were, man.
Miss Sarah Vaughan
had no equal
when it came to
singing songs like this.

Sarah Vaughan — “ Misty

.

Ok —
she was under-rated,
and pretty much
ignored by most folks.

Why?
I have no idea, man –

I think she was great.
(sure, a bit of a crush….
what can I say,
— an outcast girl with
a beautiful voice
always did grab my attention )

Laura Nyro —
La La Means I Love You

.

Love songs have to have
a depth of sincerity and passion
to really sing directly to the heart…

Forget the fancy footwork
and dance moves —
Listen to the voice.

I really feel the work of
these next two artists,
and I think you will too….

.

Glady Knight and the Pips —
Neither One of Us
( ok, never mind
I always had a crush
on her, too —
and I just love her
chicken and biscuits.  )

.

Harold Melvin and
the BlueNotes —
I Miss You

.

The ‘Disco’ bands of the 70’s
weren’t always about ‘boogieing down’….
There were some really lovely,
romantic, soulful songs in that decade.

Like this one :

Heatwave — ” Always and Forever

.

I love this song —
and although most folks
have never heard it, or her —

I’d stack this lady’s voice up
against any of the currently
more popular singers.

She’s got the voice of an angel –
which I guess is no wonder,
since she was a Sunday School teacher.

Oleta Adams —dog
Get Here

.

Our album of the week is here —
