Isn’t music grand? Its pretty much a constant ’round these parts.
Seldom does a day go by without mr.Kenneth or myself slappin’ on a platter and
shakin our bits and pieces to some musical artiste or another.
But from time to time, there are certain songs that no matter how many times
you hear them, you just can’t help yourself from having a Linda Blair moment ….
:::: cue 30 seconds of think music ::::
We’ll stop right there and leave that moment to your imaginations shall we?
Let me give you an example. Sergio Mendes & Brasil ’66 singing “Batucada”
always does it for me. Right from the opening maracas, I become a complete
ensemble of joyous Latin abandon! Mind you, I have absolutely no idea what
the girls are warbling about but in the privacy of Chez Shirley I can warble along
with the best of them! But I digress because for once, this post is not about moi.
I’ve been watching my faithful manservant rather carefully over the past few weeks
and have noticed that a number of songs in particular have had mr.Kenneth itchin’,
bitchin’ and twitchin’ like a maggot on a hot chop! The usually quiet, reserved and
sometimes petulant dear just loses himself with funny hand dancing, feet shuffling
and derriere wriggling that I swear would make Margaret Thatcher think twice!
Why only last night he dropped a plate when Lisa Stansfield singing “Down in the Depths”
popped up on shuffle mode as he needed two hands to do all the requisite diva actions!
I was aghast! I’ve never seen him quite like that before … and hope I never do again.
I mean, we’re running out of plates!
So I’ve given mr.K the day off to clean up the crockery and have been hard at work
twiddling the knobs to put together a show just to indulge him and you. Its a selection
of some of those sure fire tracks that are known to get the manservant’s man juices flowing.
In the mix are Ohio Express, Herman’s Hermits, Jean Wells, Billy Vaughn and his Orchestra,
Lydia Lunch, Thurl Ravenscroft and Roberta Lee, KC & The Sunshine Band, Honeycone,
Josef K, Russell Morris, Lisa Stansfield, Boomtown Rats, Cilla Black, The American Breed
and to top it off, the white queen of Motown, the superb Miss Chris Clark!
Yes. 15 Fabulous hits from 15 Fabulous artists!
We’d love to hear which tracks get you itchin’ bitchin’ and twitchin, so please let us
know in the comments below! Your suggestions will go into Hooked! Vol 3.
Until next time, take care and play fair
laShirl and mr.Kenneth
