Hello DJ Dave Mandl and other awards ceremony refugees, with all this talk of Japanese, and exposed body parts, just want to offer this video from Boingboing. It is radio friendly, sound not essential (subtitled). it is worth the watch. Scroll 1/3 down page "Nice Moves Minami" *May not completely dissolve in solution of Debussy. Good results expected with Randy Newman*

Randy Newman's live album with the white cover and typography is actually a pretty atypical and wonderful intro to his music -- just Randy & his piano, playing some of his best early songs (including "Lonely At The Top", which I don't think is on a studio album).

DM, If the labels are stretching out box sets by sending 1 CD each as promos you know email with a link isn't too far away.

Early results on the parenthesis list is not more than 322 individual song titles. Surprisingly low. If your show were still three hours I would have your answer before COB. Instead, I get dinner and you get email later.

Avatar 11:26pm Jimmy Cagney's hand drill:

lulu One of my favorite movie moments is in High Fidelity where the star's intro-narration speaks of love songs of the his era:
Rob having recently been left by his girlfriend Laura is trying to figure out what went wrong. His ultimate goal is to win Laura back. Throughout the movie he is looking for reasons why things went wrong. This leads him to re-examine the causes of his top five break-ups of all time in order to evaluate their effects.

Rob: 'Are we listening to pop music because were miserable? Or are we miserable because we listen to pop music?'

Rob: 'What came first, the music or the misery? People worry about kids playing with guns, or watching violent videos, that some sort of culture of violence will take them over. Nobody worries about kids listening to thousands, literally thousands of songs about heartbreak, rejection, pain, misery and loss. Did I listen to pop music because I was miserable? Or was I miserable because I listened to pop music?'

He's okay...I don't always agree w/ his points of view or statements - but that's true of Lester Bangs for that matter - but Lester Bangs was like the Hunter Thompson of Rock Critics or something...
