Classic Rock Bottom


Let's talk about that fine line between people who do nothing at their Jobs and those of us who avail ourselves of the Time-Honored Tradition of playing the angles at Work!
Something learned over time at all Jobs- how to slack off and skate a little.
Be Lazy when the opportunity presents itself.
We are all guilty, so let's celebrate it in Song, lol!
But there is Pride in what we do at Work, It's Our Job!
And finally, after all the Labor Day and Rat Race Shows, the Last Song!
The one I knew I would end with from the moment I began a year ago.
Join me...for a Toast!
And remember to give a solemn respectful thought to those souls we lost on Sept. 11th, 2001!

Both of you, go back and listen to that Stones song and wait for that frenetic crazed ending!

Get up and dance!

Had me worried since you seemed tired for the first half.
Hey that Loverboy was a last minute pick, so I guess it could be done, lol!
Leon Redbone always sounds like he recorded in the 1930's and I always like what he does.  
Part Of The Union should be listened to and sung along to with a metal beer mug in a pub!
Right, lol?
And it was my little poke at unions in the Lazy set.
I love  that Jimmy Buffet song and would have ended the Series with it had it not been for my BETTER choice, lol!
That was Keith Richards at the beginning, good ears!
One of the few, maybe the only time he ever started a song then gave lead to Mick.
Oh yeah, that friend of mine is a great guy, smart as a whip.
But that WAS a better pick to end...wasn't it, lol?
To the Stones a well deserved Golden Pell, surprised you never heard it though!
Funny, I hadn't played it in so long, I forgot how at the end it overwhelms me and I want to dance- Nicky Hopkins pounding on the piano, a 60 member choir singing their asses off, Stones rocking like crazy people- it all comes to a building crescendo at the end.
Some songs, the day I don't feel it in my bones and want to rock & dance, well then I am an old man.
Happy it ain't happened yet, lol!
Thanks for the listen and writing,

It was far more pleasant than you usually are, lol!
Maybe I know his music better cause I think he's so much a terrific madman, but if somebody played that without telling me and I had never heard it, I would have without any question said Harry Nilsson!
It's him all over it!
That guy you worked with could have been me, lol!
Yes, I was happy with this, nice selection of songs, particularly the last one which still makes me want to dance at the end!
Thanks for the listen and writing,

Finishing up a two-fer with part 2.  Nice start with Loverboy.  How could anyone do a show about working without playing that song?

That Leon Redbone song was great.  But so was the song about the Union that closed that particular set.

I like that Jimmy Buffet song too.  This is shaping up to be a tough pick for the Golden Pell.  For some reason, hearing this song makes me think of the Conway Twitty track "That's My Job".  Probably because of the similarities in the titles.

Nothing wrong with the closer you picked.  Not sure who it is.  I hear Mick Jagger, but not sure who that was at the beginning.  Maybe a collaboration?  I'm loving the drums on the song.  Nope, it is The Stones.  Well, either way, I bet that friend of yours is a great guy.  Probably really smart too.  

Okay, GP to the Stones.

Well, this wasn't as angry as the first one. This was more pleasant, I must say.

That really didn't sound like Harry Nillson. But you say it was and you wouldn't lie.

I worked with someone who was a huge Buffet fan. He didn't last long, he was quite the drinker. Even came to work under the influence. He was a Parrot Head (among other things).

Oh, well. Nothing much more to say. Nice selection of songs with this. Nice job, good to see ya and........
