This, ladies and gentlemen, is my new favorite song. I have a feeling that it will be for quite some time... Three whole minutes of pets, hilarity, and hi-jinks, set to a funky beat. It really doesn't get much better.
"Were they fat?!"
"Fat as a country possum stuffed with sweet potatoes."
"I wanna know were they fat!?"
"I told you they was fat as a country possum stuffed with sweet potatoes- With their mini skirts on and their crazy sweaters!"
I didn't know or care what this was going to be when i found it, i grabbed it for the awesome label graphics alone. The music? It is what it is. About what i expected it to be. The flip side is more of the same...
The only girl in the world, eh? The only action in town?
Well, sometimes you gotta make do with what you got...
Another banana record to add to the collection anyway.
And as for Mike Douglas- It aint actor Mike Douglas of The Streets of San Francisco fame that's for sure, but it's all right anyway. Karl Malden would be proud.
A friend of mine found this one recently and gave it to me because he knows i collect weird shit like this. He picked it up at a thrift store and unfortunately the record is warped pretty badly. The needle jumps during the first track on side one (Oddly enough, it actually plays through on side two) so i was only able to record five of the six tracks.
Scratchy wobbly and pretty beat up, but still really friggin cool. Half a dozen one minute radio spots of the classic "If you've got the time, we've got the beer" Miller jingle. Three of which are performed by The Troggs!
Kind of odd that it says 'Not to be sold or played on the air" on the label. I wonder if it was a freebie giveaway at the brewery or something like that...
Big thanks to Will for finding this and passing it along to me!
Not really sure what to make of this one. I'm digging the drums. It's killing me that i can't think of the exact song, but it kinda reminds me of something by maybe the Kinks or Small Faces or somebody like that, only with a really second-rate singer. Can't place it exactly- it's right on the tip of my ears... Comment away if you know what i'm talking about.
Its a good tune though either way. Yeah, there's a minor little skip, what can ya do...
One of the things i've learned about collecting random 45s in recent years is that a title with the word Chicken in it is almost always going to be a great song.
This here number is proof. The 'clucking' horns are brilliant
It's official. I now have a 'collection' of random-ass old songs about bananas... (More than one is a collection, right?) As of this writing i possess not one, but two songs that address this important topic... Hear the other one (one of my all time favorite records- ever) HERE.
This here is one of many that i picked in Kentucky last weekend, checking out the 'Worlds longest yard sale.' With a title like this, i couldn't say no.
I picked up the German (?) language version of this tune a few months back and then stumbled across this one more recently. Personally, i like the version that i can't understand the lyrics better. The laughing baby sound effects are way funnier.
But this ones pretty funny too...
Livin on the road. Day three of "The longest yard sale in the world" Somewhere in central Kentucky.
I've picked up a ton of cool records... But since i can't listen to them yet, this one will have to do.
I ain't got no home.
Here's one a them olde timey, what you call, 'Adult party records.' It's not so funny now, but considering the era in which it was made- it's friggin hilarious. Racy even. It is what it is. An artifact from a bygone era.
"It wadn't that big when i was in Alaska though..."
