Love me or leave me, it's anybody's guess....

I remember feeling this way after the last time I posted "Moanin' and Screamin'". What can you possibly play after that record that doesn't end up sounding like a forced attempt at cheerfulness?

Best just to draw a line................................................

Here's something completely different. Time to put on a stupid hat, fire up a fatty, and dance around with your dog. Don't be surprised if the neighbors show up with a half eaten bag of pretzels and a bottle of Pernod. The party's just starting.

A friend tells me this 45 is hard to find. I'm like, really?

[addendum: This pressing is really noisy. Just so ya'll know it has nothing to do with my rip]


  1. I like the combo of the straight-ahead beat and the unexpected twists of the vocal melody, this is pretty hot!

  2. After a few more listens - this one REALLY has grown on me even more - solid, solid record! Thanks!

  3. been reading this blog for a while and browsed through all of it, this is one of my favourite music blogs for sure! it would be really cool to see some Barrett Strong!!! :D


  4. Jer....glad you like it. I put it in the serious ear worm category myself.

    Christoffer....thanks for the kind words. I think the only record I have by Strong is "Money [That's What I Want}", but I'll look around when I get home. I'm traveling atm.

  5. Damn, this is one of the best Marchan sides I've never heard! Must... have...

  6. Joe....I'm not sure it's as hard to find as my friend says. But you know how it is down here, records are cheap. I think I paid $5 or $6 for it.

    Looking around online, I don't see any copies for sale, so maybe what he says is true?

    Ever heard "Push The Button"? It's so good I wince every time I think about it.

  7. Anybody else hear the chorus from CRAZY by Gnarls Barkley in here?

  8. David, it is close-ish....more so because both are sung in falsetto's
