Jamoker says, “There is no way someone named Huckabee should be the President of the United States!”

Whenever I hear the word “Huckabee”, I think of this fine song from one of the all-time Blues greats…John Lee Hooker :

“Huckle Up, Baby”

Says huckle up, baby
Says huckle up, baby
Just huckle up, baby
Huckle up all day long

They gotta let me ride
Gotta let me go
Gotta let me live
Gotta let me go
Huckle up, huckle up all day long

Ah baby, love me now
Baby, love me now
I love her too
Love my baby now

Like the way she huckle
Huckle buckin’ now
Huckle buck now, baby
Huckle buck now, baby
Huckle buck, now huckle buck all night long

Huckle up, baby
Said huckle up, baby
Said huckle up, baby
Said huckle up, baby
Huckle buck all night long

Ooh, said huckle up, baby
Said huckle up, baby
Oh, huckle up, baby
Huckle up all night long

Now, if however, Mr. Huckabee were to whip out a guitar during one of the debates and go ahead and sing “Huckle Up, Baby” I might change my opinion about whether he is worthy of being POTUS…

What’s new, pussycat?
Tom Jones covered the Arctic Monkeys song, “I bet that you look good on the dancefloor”, at the recent Diana Tribute concert.
VERY cool, IMHO…

(we’ll see how long before the clip gets taken down.)

It just seems abso-f’in-lutely fitting this song would be used in a car commercial:

in case you need help “placing” the tune…

Never Ending Nausea?

crank that volume, y’all…

and, since I know you want it…here’s the uncensored version (NSFW):

The new album has arrived. Buy it, you’ll be glad you did…

(by the way, this video was shot on a cell phone in a club in Amsterdam…and many other fans are visible in the video doing the same thing…ain’t technology amazing??)

I have no idea what the title I just typed means when translated, but I certainly like the music.

Run right out and buy the music of the band, “Pink Martini“. You won’t be disappointed. Or, better yet, go see them perform live. It’s truly a magical experience.

Somewhere between a 1930s Cuban dance orchestra, a classical chamber music ensemble, a Brasilian marching street band and Japanese film noir is the 12-piece Pink Martini.

Part language lesson, part Hollywood musical, the Portland, Oregon-based ‘little orchestra’ was created in 1994 in Portland, Oregon by Harvard graduate and classically trained pianist Thomas M. Lauderdale to play at political fundraisers for progressive causes such as civil rights, affordable housing, clean water, and public broadcasting. “We’re kind of like musical archaeologists, bringing melodies and rhythms from different parts of the world together to create something which is modern,” says founder and pianist Thomas M. Lauderdale. “It’s like an urban musical travelogue…and I think as citizens of the world and in a sense as musical ambassadors for the United States, we must always strive to study the languages, customs, and histories of other countries. We’re very much an American band, but we spend a lot of time abroad, in Europe, in Turkey, in Lebanon and therefore have the opportunity to demonstrate that Americans are indeed serious about engaging in a dialogue with the rest of the world.”

“One of our goals is to make music which has broad appeal to people, no matter who they are or where they come from. We play the same set of music wherever we go, whether it’s in a small farming community in Oregon or in France or Turkey or with a symphony orchestra. Music should be like a wonderful dinner party. I don’t want to always sit next to people who share my opinions. I think each of us wants a hugely diverse tapestry of influences in our lives. That’s what makes life much more interesting. Every day becomes an adventure.”

Their show is funny. It’s wonderfully entertaining. And, musically, it’s very rich and varied. All ages would enjoy “Pink Martini”!

Here’s a sample…
