February 15/16...meant to post this yesterday but whatever.

Love this band, this song got some considerable play late in 2014/early 2015 for me. Yep, same relationship. I don't make the same mistake twice, I make it five or six times just to be certain.

My dad turned me on to this song and Johnny Cash.
I know Cash didnt write this song but he is such a narrative force, it seems what ever he does, it's his own.


I love this song because of my dad.

Since we mentioned our dads contributions to our music likes, I want to throw in this one by Jerry Reed.
I remember dad getting me to listen to this and the Reed was immediately relatable.
Love his everyman sound and style, even on a campy tune like this one. Later on, I discovered what a talented guitar player he was and even played on Elvis Presleys version of his song, "Guitar Man."
After Smokey and the Bandit, needless to say Reed already had me but I was a fan forever. So much so, I even named my dog Snowman :-)

This song was in constant rotation during my football days. It may be metal silly but still gets my blood going for a work out.

weren't they the pre cursors to AIC, Mother Love Bone, Soundgarden et al?

So I just watched That Little Ole Band From Texas on NF which is a ZZ Top doc and its well worth the watch, especially if all you know is the 80's MTV era songs.

They recorded this live version of their song Brown Sugar (not to be confused with the Stones version) and its awesome.
It was recorded at Gruene Hall which is a famous old dance hall from the 1800's in Texas that still operates today as a music epicenter.

Who doesn't like James Taylor? I can thank a Surgeon that I assisted for my love of his music.  After hearing his entire collection over and over for years in the Operating Room I finally became a fan.

If you grew up in the 80's or early 90's you have to love ZZ because every woman loves a sharp dressed man.

And those videos  :D

Seriously, thats kinda what I mean because some only know that era. It's actually quite interesting, and its discussed in the doc, but they built themselves as a blues rock band, departing from the ubiquitous traditional blues and just when they began to succeed, the MTV era hit and they reinvented themselves. Its interesting to see the evolution of bands in this manner.

After that post, I recalled a long while back I'd run across a website where a journalist slash sleuth discovered some of the MTV girls from back when, so I looked it up.

Here's a brief, easy read on the "Legs" girls
https://www.yahoo.com/entertainment/blogs/stop-the-presses/zz-top-legs-women-own-them-210417325.html

And a more in depth article from the original journalist (this is about the Legs girls, but he has articles on others on that site)
https://www.noblemania.com/2013/07/the-girl-in-video-legs-1984-part-1-of-3.html

And tidbit, Kym Herrin, the blonde in the red and black leather was a playmate

I'll participate once more with one I can't get out of my head lately:


For whatever reason, I've listened to this CD since 2003, but it's the only AFI CD I've ever listened to (I say for some reason, the reason is: nostalgia! surprise).

Yet, once a year, I'll be in a "I don't know what to listen to space," and that's when this one shines. And it's like, a one playthrough, "ah, that hit the spot," and wait until next year type of thing.

Even funnier is one of my friends from back in high school, when I texted him about this phenomenon, said "Haha, yup, just went through the phase in December so I'm good for a year," hahaha.

Anyways, for your enjoyment, AFI's This Celluloid Dream, from Sing the Sorrow.
