World's Worst iPod: Those Were The Days

This song was originally a Russian romance song called "Dorogoi dlinnoyu".  It became popular in 1968 when Mary Hopkin recorded it.  It went all the way to number 2 on the charts!  It may be corny, but Paul McCartney really liked it because he was the producer of the song.  It was recorded on the Beatles' Apple Records label.  McCartney even had Hopkin record it in four other languages.

Those were the days of Scott Walker and the real people of wealth
Those were the day when Scott Walker ruined the beautiful State of Wisconsin. No rights for workers, then making them into scape goats. Causing serious dark and depressive work environments Destroying the natural environment Selling State owned power plants and land to the highest bidder Creating meaningless policies that do not help Wisconsin citizens and passing bills that should how ignorant Wisconsinites are. "Here's a couple of buck off your taxes" In return we will charge you double for all other services. Wasting time by creating stupid tax holidays Fining State Employee's $50.00 for every time they get smoking. The song will help us remember the days of a beautiful, happy, robust State for that's owned and for everyone living in it. Sorry, I know this sounds bad, sad and yes mad. It's a depressing song when you think of Wisconsin then, now and it's future.

World's Worst iPod: LeBlanc & Carr "Falling"
LeBlanc and Carr were Lenny LeBlanc and Pete Carr, two Muscle Shoals studio musicians who hit the top 40 in 1978 with their hit "Falling." It made it up to #13 on the charts and was perfect for clumsy teenage slow dancing! Musically, these guys were...

Kitty's night in a haunted house
Before Friday, my only experience with a haunted house, commercial or otherwise, was at the Recreation Department in Stevens Point when I was a teenager, and as I remember I was FREAKED out. So I was a little nervous when Jonathan and I were asked to...

Finally, recognition of Stevie Ray Vaughan by the Rock Hall
The new list of nomines for the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame is out, and finally they give a nod to Stevie Ray Vaughan. The Rock Hall has passed Stevie by for the more than ten years that he's been eligible, causing me and other blues fans much...

You might want to see "Once" twice
I had the opportunity to go see "Once" at Overture Hall last night, and I guess the two word summary of my review could be "weirdly awesome." The story isn't too complicated, which is good because I sometimes had a hard time understanding the...

World's Worst iPod: Stonebolt "I Will Still Love You"
It seems Kitty was all alone in the Canadian wilderness with her love for the 1978 hit "I Will Still Love You" by Stonebolt. It only made it up to #29, so it seems a lot of folks didn't have the fond memories of the song that she did. With amazing...

World's Worst iPod: Neil Diamond "Yesterday's Songs"
Even Neil Diamond fans didn't seem to want to throw their support behind this one. "Yesterday's Songs" with its cheesy backup singers may be the most cliche song the guy does! It made it up to #11 on the charts in 1981/82 and was #1 on the...
