The Beatles version of "Kansas City/Hey-Hey-Hey-Hey" is also the song played at Royals games after they win
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:29am coelacanth∅:

the first "kansas city" i heard was hermits hermits and to say it blows the beatles' version out of the water is an understatement

How do I not know Herman's Hermits version of Kansas City??? They introduced me to Dandy, I'm Into Something Good, Wonderful World . . .
  Swag For Life Member 12:32am Ira:

Tami Lynn! Oh brother, hadn't heard about that.
  12:32am Rick G:

If you have Twitter check out @ashcanpress (Matthew Rosenberg) and his Carl Reiner story. It’s very sweet.

I mean, this arrangement is kind of brilliant, at least in terms of just how down Kiss dumbed it.

The Dave Clark Five song also goes by the name Somebody Find A New Love. I thought it sounded familiar. Don't know why the title switch.

Johnny Mandel, composer of The Russians Are Coming!, just passed away this week. On the upside, Youtube carries great prints of The Dick Van Dyke Show.
  12:46am Tookie Wuthry Guffy:

one time of two timers root ed in tooting horns before the act of scorn can even occur.. or if together than before the other can comprehend the action that’s happening... not just the warning which counts as a confession and a testimony’s template is unearthed if you can turn nouns into other nouns much like the archaic turn them on their heads ... or it... on its... alchemical basic components assigning directions before a space was designed... that’s no good it introduces another mechanic that may not be necessary.
  12:47am Rick G:

Is this a Beefheart cover?

Rick G: Yes, although with a lot of new parts.

Can’t fall asleep, might as well check out Ira’s show live this week! Thanks for doing this!! I’m a DJ at WXDU and haven’t done a show since March. Been listening to your shows here since you started filling in for Dave and you’ve hipped me to several great discoveries.

Thanks again, hope to see you guys at the Cradle in 2021!

Hola DJ Ira and the living.

Ok lots of Sun Ra enthusiasts here. I've seen a b+w video on YouTube of a 8-10 piece Arkestra plus dancers do "Rocket #9". At the end they go acapella and do a rap style version. Can't seem to find it but does anyone know what i refer to? Thx.

Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:10am Rory:

Hey everyone! mb, if it’s b+w it could be 69-71 I can’t find a rocket #9. YouTube has a habit of taking videos off. I have Sun Ra Arkestra live on SNL on a dvr (not my own). It’s not on a smart tv so I don’t know how to convert it to a file to put on YouTube.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:11am Rory:

I think I’ve seen the video you’re talking about...
Avatar 1:13am mb:

Thx Rory. "YouTube has a habit of taking videos off." Seems like a lot has gotten taken down this year.

So "Arnold Layne" was apparently inspired by a newspaper story Syd read about a transvestite who'd been arrested for stealing women's clothes off of clothes lines.

Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:21am Rory:

@mb - Hopefully I can use my millennial powers and up the artifact on YouTube! Oof, so much good live Sun Ra deleted forever! Still haven’t seen the snl clip. It’s one of his best and they cut the Arkestra off visually the finale 30 secs with the music still playing! I imagine the behind the cameras they were motioning to cut it or else they would have just kept playing, haha!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:22am Rory:

Can’t believe it happened though wow!
  Swag For Life Member 1:23am Ira:

This LONG Century. Check out Georgia's playlist. It's fantastic!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:25am mariano:

Ooh yeah, Rory, that does sound tough, having something on DVR but no smart TV. Maybe a specialized electronics shop?
  1:26am John L:

Rory, the Sun Ra SNL is on Daily Motion. It's the entire episode in two parts.

Is that a proper exclamation? Not sure, but I just went outside with my camera...and things happened. I find it pleasant to remind myself what light and lens can do. Holy shit...we went through some things out there.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:30am Mr. Pumpy:

What are you all doing to flex the creative muscle? I lost the wherewithal for so long, and I'm jazzed that it has returned.
