Friday Random Name That Tune. . .

As Promised, Other, Reader's Editions will Follow

But, this one's mine. . .couldn't help it, there were some beauties playing this morning.

1. "Take It Easy, Greasy" Li'l Johnson

Take it easy greasy, love me 'till I get enough
Take it easy greasy, now baby don't you get so rough
Hug me honey, squeeze me tight
You need not hurry 'cos you got all night, so
Take it easy greasy, love me 'till I get enough (I got to have it)
Love me till I get enough

2. Stephen T recognised "Before the Deluge" Jackson Browne - Myrtle was only six minutes behind, but that's the game.

Some of them were dreamers
And some of them were fools
Who were making plans and thinking of the future
With the energy of the innocent

3. deeluzon gets not only Ella Fitzgerald but Rogers and Hart for "Have You Met Miss Jones?"

It happened
I felt it happen
I was awake
I wasn't blind

4. Bunter Points with "When the Man Comes Around" Johnny Cash (one of his very finest)

There's a man going around taking names and he decides
Who to free and who to blame every body won't be treated
Quite the same there will be a golden ladder reaching down
When the man comes around

5. Gatun Lake identifies "Tumbling Dice" a Rolling Stones song, but for this I was listening to a soundboard bootleg of Linda Ronstadt backed by some of my snottiest slide guitar work.

Women think I'm tasty, but they're always tryin' to waste me
And make me burn the candle right down,
But baby, baby,
I don't need no jewels in my crown.

6. "Tipitina" Professor Longhair

Hey Loberta, oh poor Loberta
Girl you hear me callin' you
Well you're three times seven, baby
Knows what you want to do

7. Shaun scores with "I'm Sick, Ya'll" by the man, Otis Redding

Standin' outside, y'all
It's raining, children
Gettin' soaking wet
And it's raining, y'all

8. Myrtle June did score first with "All Through the Night" Cyndi Lauper.

All through the night
I'll be awake and I'll be with you
All through the night
This precious time when time is new

9. Cowboy Diva gets "Gumboots" by Paul Simon

I was having this discussion
In a taxi heading downtown,
Rearranging my position
On this friend of mine who had
A little bit of a breakdown

10. Sean Carrol picks "Every Grain of Sand" a Dylan song, my version is another live bootleg (often musicians will have the sound techs make a live recording, it's like watching game film) done by Emmylou Harris. I'm on guitar, monsterously electric guitar.

In the time of my confession,
in the hour of my deepest need
When the pool of tears beneath my feet
flood every newborn seed
