Sorry, Pa.  The appeal of Joni Mitchell is totally lost on me.

I know I already posted it...but it fits OUR life SO very well....so, I'll do it again.
And I'll give anyone a $1 bill if they can correctly identify the car she is driving...that is, anyone other than TIZ.
(Ten years ago, You could have VERY READILY thought that was US - 'cept my hair was much more red, and MissyD had a much better overall tan...but we LIVED near there, and HAD A similar car!!!)   Note: That IS Roger Waters: the guy in the video - they HAD TO COLOUR HIS HAIR (yea, it is WHITE) ...anybody recognize "Ray's Daddy" (the Genie)?.

Ring of Fire by Wall of Voodoo.  Johnny Cash meets Iron Butterfly meets Ennio Morricone.

The best!  Oddly, it's missing from my 3 CD Johnny Cash box set.
 
Still, I've liked most of the cover versions I've heard.  Wall of Voodoo, Social Distortion, Blondie, Joaquin Phoenix, etc.

...well, o.k....I guess I've hidden my preferences long enough...
I'll give you a few...
 
(dearly love this song...)
 
...one of OUR songs...(as LOUD as it can be played)...
 
 
Another one that holds a VERY, VERY special place in my heart for stories yet untold...for friends that have 'moved on to greener pastures'...("...play it again, Sam!")

This is a song by a band called Paris Combo that I heard in a high school French class one day & couldn't get it out of my head, so I found it on Limewire & downloaded it.

If you're like me & don't understand one word of French, you won't have the slightest idea what the song is about, but it's quite enjoyable to listen to nonethless.

The beginning of it sounds like something out of a soundtrack to a Pink Panther cartoon. It has sort of 30's or late 50's jazz feel. The female vocalist has a voice that I can only describe as exquisite & the instrumental melody is just haunting for lack of a better word. After I heard it I wanted to listen to it over & over again until I got tired of it. Which I did.

The visual portion of this video has nothing to do with the group or the song so just ignore it & listen to the audio.

This second clip is the same song by a different band. The tempo is much faster & the female vocalist doesn't sound anywhere near as good as the one in the first version not to mention the goofy smile on her face. The reason I'm posting this one is solely for the pleasure of watching the horn player & the guitarist do their thing.

Hot man, hot.
 
Cool daddy-o.

I like 'em.
 
Musically, the first one reminds me of Squirrel Nut Zippers; the second one of the Stray Cats or, oddly, Alice Cooper's Blue Turk.
 
Blue Turk by Alice Cooper (video irrelevant to the song):

I agree that the basic underlying rhythm is similar, but the mood & the tone of the songs are different.
 
The Alice Cooper song of course having his signature dark & creepy feel to it & more of a rock-n-roll beat, whereas the other song has an urban "hip-cat" tone with more of a jazz beat.
