I offer one from last night's outing:
St John's CoffeeHouse Sign - June 23, 2012
Today's iTunes shuffle was inspired by music heard this weekend. Had three of them on 45 at one time. I had Kicks, Touch Me, and Incense and Peppermints. They were all big hits when I was growing up. Everyone in my old neighborhood loved Paul Revere and the Raiders.
The BOTD is pretty cool. I probably saw the video featured in that blog post when it aired. We watched the Smothers Brothers regularly. Very surprised it wasn't lip-synched. Most performances were in those days. Unfortunately, I only remember The Doors as songs on the radio. I had no idea then how much drama they created and how adults saw them.
5 song iTunes shuffle from this morning's iTunes shopping spree:
- Touch Me - The Doors - The Very Best of the Doors
- After the Gold Rush - Neil Young - After the Gold Rush
- Liar, Liar - The Castaways - 20th Century Rocks: 60's Rock Bands - Wild Thing
- Kicks - Mark Lindsey, Paul Revere & The Raiders - 20th Century Rocks: 60's Rock Bands - Wild Thing
- Incense and Peppermint - Strawberry Alarm Clock - Incense & Peppermints
Quote of the Day
If he's upset about not being served he can appeal. I'll take a few days and then turn him down again. Tough luck, I make the rules here.
Blog of the day is here.
Quote from said blog: "One of the group’s most famous television appearances is their performance of “Touch Me” on the Smothers Brothers Comedy Hour along with the single’s B-side, “Wild Child.” The taping date was December 6, 1968 with air date of December 15th. During the performance, Jim Morrison missed his cue for the lines “C’mon, c’mon” and Robby Krieger could be seen with a black eye. Krieger stated in several interviews given after Morrison’s death that Morrison had given him the black eye during a confrontation; ironically, Krieger’s original title for the song was “Hit Me.” The group is backed by the Nelson Riddle Orchestra, plus Curtis Amy duplicating the saxophone solo he also performed on the studio version."
