    I have two favorite singers. Smokey Robinson is #1 and Paul Rodgers is #2, but I thought he was a bad fit with Queen. Adam Lambert fit better.

    Is there a happier song than this one? Love Shack by The B-52's

    Songfacts®:

    This was inspired by a 1970 Temptations song called "Psychedelic Shack," which had the refrain: "Psychedelic Shack, that's where it's at." The location of the actual Love Shack is not clear, but in 2004 MSNBC reported that an unoccupied, 5-room cabin with a tin roof in Athens, Georgia that had recently burned down was probably the dwelling in question. Kate Pierson lived there in the '70s.

    This introduced The B-52's to a mainstream audience. They had a strong cult following, especially in the gay community, but not a broad audience.

    Towards the end, the music stops and Cindy Wilson wails: "Tin Roof, Rusted." The line is commonly misheard.

    The lyrics are fun and harmless, but they can be interpreted as being about a place where people go to have sex. At Disney World, you will never see Mickey Mouse dancing to it - really - they refuse to play it at Disney weddings.

    The video was shot at a house in Upstate New York belonging to a friend of the band. He can be seen in the garden as the camera sweeps by the window.
    Drag queen Rupaul, unknown at the time, is in the video. He had a dance hit called "Supermodel" a few years later.

    Nile Rodgers and Don Was produced this. Rodgers has produced hits for Peter Gabriel, Madonna and David Bowie, as well as his group Chic, who had Disco hits with "Le Freak" and "Good Times." Was has worked with Jewel, Bob Dylan, Elton John and The Rolling Stones. He also had his own group in the '80s called Was Not Was, who had a hit with "Walk The Dinosaur."

    This was the B-52's first Top 10 hit in the US.

    The group performed this on an episode of The Simpsons as "Glove Slap."

    Fred Schneider and Kate Pierson performed this at the 2002 Jammy Awards with the group Particle. Since the awards honored jam bands, they stretched the song into an extended jam.
    Over the years, various adult video stores have cropped up using the Love Shack name. There was also a movie released on video in 2010 called Love Shack, which was about a group of porn stars who get together to make a film in honor of a deceased producer.

    The horns were provided by The Uptown Horns, a New York-based section that toured with the J. Geils Band on their Freeze Frame tour and played on Tom Waits' Rain Dogs album.

    It does sound a bit bossy doesn't it? That didn't come off as intended. Sorry. :oops:

    From my favorite Fleetwood Mac era, with Peter Green and Danny Kirwan on guitar, 'Albatross' by Fleetwood Mac. It always reminds me of being at the beach.

    Songfacts®:

    An albatross is a bird that sailors believed brought bad luck, hence the expression "An albatross around your neck." The albatross appears in the poem The Rhyme Of The Ancient Mariner by Samuel Coleridge. Fleetwood Mac guitarist Peter Green read the poem as a child, which gave him the idea for the song.

    This song is the biggest ever selling Rock instrumental hit in the UK.

    Peter Green says in 1000 UK #1 Hits by Jon Kutner and Spencer Leigh: "I heard John Mayall's Bluebreakers cover of Blues singer Jimmy Rogers 'The Last Meal.' I thought I would take it and develop it."

    From start to finish, this contains only 2 guitar chords: Emaj7 and F#m.

    This inspired the Beatles song "Sun King" on their 1969 Abbey Road album.

    A Chuck Berry instrumental from 1957 called "Deep Feeling" has many of the same elements Fleetwood Mac used on "Albatross," including a call and answer style of guitar playing, and constant bass in the background. Berry was an influence on many British Blues musicians.

    The melancholy melody and resplendent lyrics of Thrasher woo and wow me every time!
    Imagine yourself and Neil Young ensconced around a cozy camp fire. Neil accompanies his spectral alto , with 12 string spruce guitar, and harmonica.
    Let the magic begin!

    My wife has never liked Neil Young's music. So last year our son got tickets to see him in Chicago and invited her. All week long my wife grumbled about having to sit through that show but wanted to spend time with our son so she went. When she came back she said it was the best show she'd ever seen, and she's seen lots of bands. :)

    Arlo Guthrie - Coming In To Los Angeles - 1969

    Excellent session musicians on this tune. Ry Cooder on pedal steel, James Burton, who played with Elvis, on guitar, Jim Gordon the drummer for Eriic Clapton's 'Layla' album, Clarence White from the Byrds, and Gram Parsons.
