Today Is Tuesday. You know what that means.

Today Is Tuesday.
You Know What That means.
We're Gonna Have A Special Guest!!

Chatty Kelly heard this on the radio the other day and asked me to play it for her. No problem as this is an awesome song. Spinning Wheel----Whirling Dervish------Of course I like it. The only problem is.....well, be sure to notice the guy at around 18 seconds into the clip. He's doing a good job, but face it, We Need More Cowbell!!!

Those trumpets are incredible too.

(there is a better version of the song but I looked for almost an hour...well spent time (note: NOT "good" spent time).....trying to find a video of it. All I could find was the long version without the video, so I went with this one anyway)

Have a great day!

Is there anything NOT to love about this song! Horn section, guy in a white suit, mullets, I mean woo hoo - it's the 70's! Yeah baby!

But I do have one problem with the song. IT NEEDS MORE COWBELL!!!!!

Man, always a favorite, since I was...this small.....

I remember not knowing the bridge lyric: "Did you find a ??? WHAT?" In this version, David Clayton Thomas sings 'directing' like any one of us would. But, in the studio recording, he sings 'di-AIR-ECK-ting' sign. It wasn't until I found the song in piano sheet music that I learned the truth. ('scuse me, while I kiss this guy...")

I also got Blood, Sweat and Tears mixed up with Chicago. In fact, I think I have a single somewhere--from Time, Life or somebody--with BST's Spinning Wheel on one side and Chicago's Does Anybody Really Know What Time it is? on the other. Now THAT's a brass tour-de-force.

The wack-a, wack-a guitar sound.

The Styx hairdo on the guitar player, way before the 80s.

Awesome brass!

Definitely, more cowbell. Definitely.

Now this song's gonna be on my brain and drive me nuts!

Talk about an anachronism. A white polyester leisure suit, a mullet hair cut, Red bell-bottoms, sneakers, and psychedelic visual effects, with a bunch of old dudes preening like spring roosters. Painful to look at but irresistible to listen to.
Where ya been? I missed you.

I haven't heard that in ages. Kelly heard it the other day? Love the trumpets!

I vote that we all take a field trip together to a concert like this. WHat a HOOT that would be. We'd probably get arrested for having too much fun.
MORE COWBELL!!!

Pam from alertandorientedx4 said...

I agree with Beverlydru about the field trip...but only if we can see the Eagles and maybe even the Beach Boys. And Clapton would make it just a little slice of heaven. sigh... Is his hairline really receding that much? What are my old age tells, I wonder....hmm...

Greg C said...

That was on the first album I ever owned. But I have to agree something is missing. We need more cowbell. I got a feaver, and you know that the only perscription for it is....

I'm in for the field trip.

I'll paste on some sideburns.

Good one, though it is Wednesday- I missed Tuesday altogether- not well, I mean, not good.
