t, Kids 'N Play - bet no-one has that on their playlists anywhere... [smile]

Larry, I'm going with Buzz.  "To Infinity And Beyond!"  Or is that also what this guy is saying too?  Hard to tell, he lost me when the chocolate got put away.

kds, that "One" video was pretty funny.

John E, thanks very much for your votes.

Darren, a good selection for playing.  I especially liked the first and last songs.

Moving those numbers up.

bonnie -- I agree with you and Buzz. I lasted a little longer, but I can't get my head around the idea that some infinities are larger than others. They all go on forever.

This video might cause a seizure in some viewers. Maybe it's a Montreal thing.

Suuns, "2020", Images du Futur, 2013 



(It's good I did a "preview" -- I almost posted "Confessions of a Republican", a 4-minute TV commercial that President Johnson's campaign used to attack Barry Goldwater for extremism back in 1964.)

Bonnie - vote-time

Gold to the Brian song by a loooong margin.
Silver to the Maroons
Bronze - White Stripes
So Tin goes to 10 CC
(you had the order already)

Darren, if you go with Beechwood - go with the original - what a groove it has (Marvin Gaye on the co-write AND on the drums here).   

Back to Zero with classic Bob:

One after this (909), by these guys:

If this doesn't get you dancin' and shakin' (Marvin and Kim):

Alvin Lee (TEN Years After) going home by heli-copter:

First of all, I would like to make it perfectly clear that Buzz Clique has never been to infinity and beyond, and that the above quotes reference Buzz Lightyear.

Humans of a sensitive nature might not want to view the following truth about where Mr. Lightyear has gone. WARNING: Once seen, cannot be unseen: http://www.dunkthebiscuit.com/media/2015092901.jpg

The Bobby Fuller Four, "Let Her Dance", 1965



The Dave Clark Five, "Anyway You Want It", 1964



PS -- I just read about Bobby Fuller's death in 1966. Strange story. He was found dead in a car parked outside his apartment in Hollywood. The death was attributed to gasoline vapors and the summer heat.

PPS for Buzz -- I thought of you when that other Buzz came up, so it's nice to see your programming allowed you to comment, even though the references were to another entity.

I could've gone with the original of 'Beechwood', Al, but I chose the well produced version that doesn't sound like cats on heat. Karen sounded great, skeletal features and all.

Wanda Jackson, "Riot in Cell Block Number Nine", 1961

Note: At the beginning of this version, Ms. Jackson refers to serving time in "Tehachapi" in 1953. That was a California state prison for women in the Tehachapi Mountains, about 35 miles southeast of Bakersfield (the home of country singer Buck Owens). However, the women's prison was closed in 1952 after a nearby earthquake. The prison reopened as a men's prison in 1954.

Hence, Wanda's lyrics should not be taken at face value. It also means that when I was in elementary school in the early 1960s, and would look at the Tehachapi Mountains looming in the distance and ponder the existence of a prison for women up in that sad and barren-looking wasteland, I had been misinformed. The only inmates were men, which wouldn't have been half as interesting.

The original, more impressive and more reliable version:

The Robins, "... Cell Block #9", 1954

Larry, I am starting to wonder of there is a graphic arts type class that does a lot of flashing geometric patterns in Montreal, which does very well locally.  Perhaps they offer music video discounts?  [smile] 

t, great to see those fresh numbers coming, you always dig out something new.  

Buzz, I can't believe you'd roll in on my week! And just look what you've done to Buzz Lightyear!  Did you do it because he's a more recognizable Buzz than yourself?  "It got stuck when a button was accidentally pushed which opened the wings..."  Accident?  I'll believe you.  Thousands wouldn't.  You are a very bad robot, Buzz.

Thanks very much for the votes Verden and Al.

My votes,

GOLD - 10CC.  I just love this song.  I'm not a big fan of most 10CC stuff, mainly because I've heard "I'm Not In Love" more times than Buzz (Lightyear) has been beyond infinity and snapped his wings open.  This is one of the few songs I love that the lyrics don't matter at all, but I've found the lyrics are quite good too.  Ghostly hot airline stewardess saves life of struggling musician after plane crashes into unspecified seas.  Fabulous.

SILVER - The White Stripes.  Verden, I agree with you, that is one pumping beat.  I love the stripped back sound of Jack's music, and the intensity and energy he brings.  A very close second place.  Jack is cool enough that I'll forgive him for pretending his ex wife was his sister.  How do we know they didn't have an unconsummated relationship and throw forks at each other and call each other "spotty gits" anyway?  We don't know.  We just don't know.

BRONZE - Brian.  Sorry Brian.  If the songs were ranked on emotional connection, this would be my Gold.  After all, I hung out counting the days to the release date of this album, carried it out of the shop in two reverential hands, played it a lot until I lost it to a company car (I hope who got it next appreciated it), bawled like a baby through it at the end of Love and Mercy twice, and watched Brian dedicate it to his lovely wife and sing it just meters from me just a few months ago.  If I hadn't put this up against some old favorites of mine, it would have probably made gold any other week.

TIN - Maroon 5.  Not a lot of love for these guys yet.  He gets my tin as well.  I'll still turn him up on the radio and you don't even get a visual with the radio, so I must like his singing a bit too.  Sexy as heck lyrics, which I've always loved with this song.  One thing he does that I've often wondered about is that he seems to get breathless when singing, and while it sounds to me like a mistake, he does it in a few songs and I'm starting to wonder if it's intentional.  He does it in the "Sunday Morning" clip at about 2.58, and again here and there in the song below.  Can anyone explain?



and back to the order....


Something nice and noisy from an Aussie band called Twelve Foot Ninja.  The intro is subtitled, but a word of warning, it's not a pretty conversation, but funny if you get down under humour.

And an early 60s mo(u)ldy oldie:



Sorry, bonnie. I started putting this post together before your post above, so I picked up after Larry's number 9 and kept going right up through 16.
