Rednecks, Real Old Music, and Stuttering Songs

1.  I saw a pick up truck with a confederate flag painted on it.  My first thought was, what an ignorant bastard.  The confederacy symbolizes rednecks who fought to oppress black people and he’s displaying it proudly.  The more I thought about it, the more content I was with it.  I figure it’s great that he displays his passion to a backwards Southern heritage, it lets the rest of us know he’s kind of retarded. 

Political correctness really masked a lot of ignorant feelings and emotions, it’s kind of sad that we could be neighbors with a racist homophobe and not know it.  I wish they made flags for all kinds of stuff, like anti-war, stimulus spending, legalization of marijuana, abstinence, etc.  It would be cool to know where people stand on things, I guess that’s what bumper stickers are for.  The problem with bumper stickers and flags is that you can’t argue with them, you just have to stare at it and get disgruntled if you disagree.  It would be very cool if there was a law that if you displayed a bumper sticker you’d have to affix a little box where people could drop notes offering feedback on the position you are taking on your bumper sticker. 

2.  Hatboro, PA has a radio station!  It plays really old music, but very cool old music.  Tonight they played a song by Clarence “Frogman” Henry called “Aint Got No Home” and it really made me happy.  Go to iTunes and check it out.  The radio station is 89.3 FM and I encourage that you give it a try some time.

3.  I was driving to a meeting today and listening to Bachman-Turner Overdrive’s “You Aint Seen Nothin’ Yet”.  The lyrics go:

Oooh, oooh she looked at me with big brown eyes
And said:
You ain’t seen nothin’ yet,
B-B-B-Baby, you just ain’t seen nothin’ yet,
Here’s something that you never gonna forget,
B-B-B-Baby, you just ain’t seen nothin’ yet.

I never noticed this before, but this song could totally be about a chick he was making out with who had a major stuttering problem, read the lyrics!  Here’s my favorite songs with stuttering in them:

5.  Aint Seen Nothin’ Yet by Bachman-Turner Overdrive – Any song that could possibly be about making out with a woman who stutters is pretty damn cool in my book.
4.  Moondance by Van Morrison – Jaclyn thinks this is more of “Scat” singing than stuttering, but it sure sounds like stuttering to me.
3.  My Generation by The Who – His generation sh-sh-sh-should stop stuttering so much.
2.  Changes by David Bowie – Ch-Ch-Ch-Changes, time may change me, but I can’t change time! 
1.  Bad to the Bone by George Thorogood – Ba, ba, ba, ba, ba bad!  It’s like he’s so bad ass that he scares himself into stuttering…genius!

Honorable Mention:  Ch-Check It Out by the Beastie Boys.  By the way, it’s cool that it’s not boys with a z, how lame would it be if they were the Beastie Boyz.

The weekend is almost here and the Bulldog’s have a double header on Sunday.  I think we might need to have a team drink on the back deck of the General Davis bar.  Maybe they’ll have a jukebox and I can request all the songs above, do you think anyone will notice the theme?

  1. Sussudio by Phil Collins always sounds like a major stutter to me. i once read (although i think its untrue) that he came up with the name because as he was entering the building to record the album a janitor with a stuttering problem pointed to the direction he should go and said the “stu-stu-studio is that way”. collins didn’t know what the hell he was saying but i guess he liked the sound of it. how about babe i’m gonna leave you by led zeppelin? I’m not sure how mainstream it is, i always figure that everybody know every led zeppelin song. of course, babe is the repeated lyric and in the live versions i’ve hearded him mumble the word what seems like 50 times in a row. To help refresh your memories:Babe, baby, baby, Im gonna leave you.I said baby, you know Im gonna leave you.Ill leave you when the summertime,Leave you when the summer comes arollinLeave you when the summer comes along.and i’m not sure if its a stutter or maybe just turrets syndrom, but how could you forget a favorite song of you and davey j? misunderstood by wilco. tweedy really wants to thank you guys during that song. thank you. thank you. thank you. and you. thank you. and Brian G.thank you. thank you kane. thank you.

  2. I actually thought about both of those songs, but I decided they weren’t stuttering, just massive repetition. James Brown also sang a song called “I Got A Feeling” where he says “baby, baby, baby, baby, baby, baby…I got a feelin!”. The Beatles song, “Why Don’t We Do It In The Road” is also very repetitive.
