DFTL: drippy cocoa debbie allen sweat

It's Thursday - time for a quick peak into the Head of G to see what's swirling around in there. Two sets of lyrics are from the same song... a million points to the first one who can tell me what it is...

And really, who couldn't use some more Dan Band in their lives?

Should just be my own best friend, not fuck myself in the head with stupid men.

I believe she loves you because you never make her feel like anything.

From what I’ve seen you’re just one more hand me down, ‘cuz no one’s tried to give you what you need.

I said come on all you cowboys, all you blue eyed baby boys, oh come on all you dashing gentlemen of summer.

If it’s magic then why can’t it be everlasting, like the sun that always shines?

Well Smackwater Jack he bought a shotgun, cuz he was in the mood for a little confrontation.

They’re advertising in the skies for people like us.
And your bonus DB...see how nice I am to you?

So what's been rattling around in your heads, minions?

Would you believe that I've never heard of this dude? Well I haven't. I'll have to look him up online and see what he's all about.

WNG said...

I'm so glad I could be the one to introduce you to the Dan Band. Check out their holiday album from last year, HO.

I'm trying to keep my mind empty...

WNG said...

Try Vodka - ususally works for me !

Susan said...

"everything I've done I've done for you...I move the stars for no one"

"I will never find another lover sweeter than you...sweeter than you"

"i'm built to fade like your favorite song
getting reckless when there's no need
laugh as your stories ramble on
break my heart but it won't bleed
my only friends are pirates, it's just who i am"

WNG said...

Good ones Susan :)
BTW that's because there is NO ONE sweeter than me!
Or more humble, obviously.

NoRegrets said...

sigh, by the time I get to work, all the songs that have been going through my head fade away. I'll try and remember them.

Doc said...

Those were interesting lyrics. I'm also someone who has never heard of this dude, but then I haven't heard of a lot of white bands. Shoot, I haven't heard of a lot of black musical acts.

I love "Should just be my own best friend, not fuck myself in the head with stupid men."


Susan said...

77 days! EEP!!!

WNG said...

Big Man - Brother of G, who lives in LA and gets to see them live is the one who turned me on to them. They're worth checking out - seriously funny :)

Hearts - that's amy winehouse and one of my favorites - it's my motto for this next little while :)

WNG said...

YEA 77 DAYS!!!

Gye Greene said...

Susan's piping Bowie, from "Labyrinth?" I'm impressed!!! (Yeah, I have the album -- on cassette.)

Me: "Pop Goes the World", by Men Without Hats. But only because I was playing it (cassette again) earlier today.


WNG said...

Susan is impressive in many ways, Gye :)

I thought I was the only one who still broke out the cassettes?! Oh and Guess Who bought a blue guitar?!?! ME!!!!

Gye Greene said...

Yeah -- an ongoing project, to play all of my tapes at least once. We moved house semi-recently (well, about a year ago), and I re-discovered all my "briefcases" of tapes. Not surprisingly, they're a bit of a time capsule: basically 1980s stuff, with some '70s. Starting about 1989, I switched almost completely to CDs.

Blue guitar: Blog about it? (e.g. how you came upon it) :) Photo?


WNG said...

As soon as I have it in hy hot little hands, Gye, you'll hear all about it!!!
Probably more than you ever wanted to know :)
