Think nothing of it, you of the Jitterbug Cult–you are quite welcome for all the cool rocking music, some soft, some hard, that follows:
“Don’t give up until you drink from the silver cup,
you never know until you try.”
“Sometimes late when things are real
and people share the gift of gab,
“I ain’t ready for the altar but I do agree there’s times,
when a woman sure can be a friend of mine.”
The folk-rock seventies band America gave us some memorable and lyrical lyrics and were great performers, too — the kind of musicians who just stood and looked pretty for the girls and delivered without much glitz and glamour and seventies disco-era over-kill to distract from finely crafted music.
I never get tired of hearing about that “sister golden-hair sublime” and the band’s homage to the Beach Boys with the feel-good song’s ending.
So with no further ado, more music from “America,” AND, memes and more:
And while you’re listening, here’s your Belizean Face of the Day and his name is Cisco and he was, and is, a friend of mine, and maybe the best shoe repairmen south of the American border.
Sometimes we chase de gringo rustlers through de fields and steal their wine and whiskey although most of the time we just sit at his shoe repair stand and pass the time shooting the caca and watching the tourists go by while he works.
And speaking of great people from south of the border, los lobos, another stand-up bunch of talented Mexicanos whose lead singer David Hidalgo, poses the age-old question about ol’ Peter Wolf–will he survive in such a graceless climate???
And if you can listen to this song without patting your foot or jumping up and doing a jitterbug jig, you may be the living dead.
This is dedicated to Donald Trump, who loves people everywhere as much as he loves money.
Until next time . . . remember that everything’s gonna be all right when Love incarnate comes back around:
