If you can remember to smile a little every day it does seem the make the day better.
This song eats at my guts, I saw the one true love in my life yesterday, and alcohol doesn't make me forget her anymore.
New from Tom MacDonald. It's only been on YouTube for two days and already has over 2 million views.
To all my white brothers who love Country like me. I will always love Rock but now I can honestly say I like country just as much! Not to
mention that southern & midwest women(country girls) are the type you want to marry.
Here's an instrumental song by a Northwest, USA band called The Fabulous Wailers (and sometimes The Wailers) called Tall Cool One. From 1959. Note that the band used the name The Wailers before Bob Marley, the reggae musician, did.
Extra Point enjoyed that song a lot. I love the sax. Here is one from the Rolling Stones. In memory of the passing of Charlie Watts their great drummer at the age of 80.
Here's Charlie Watt playing an on the Rolling Stones song Gimme Shelter. Listen to the drum part. Like a metronome.
Watt, by the way, stayed married to the same woman for 57 years. RIP Charlie Watt.
When worlds collide
How close has this video come to be true?
The Hu is a Mongolian group that promotes tribalism and maybe is trying to channel the spirit of Genghis Khan in this song. Another one of their videos is somewhere in this 13 year old thread.
If you ever visit Mongolia, pray you don't run across this crew on some random steppe:
I hope this video is ok to post. I will understand if you take it down but it's Tom Mcdonald and Dax with a song that is spot o n with what is going on in America today.
Anyone who was young in the 1970s and loved rock blasted this song like I did as a teenager on my good old 8 track player while driving my first car, a 1968 Firebird with 400 hp and which got about 5 miles to the gallon:
I love Boston along with so many other of the bands from that era. I saw them in concert and had one of the hottest girls as my date. Fun times indeed. Great song! I'm
more of a Mopar guy as I've always loved Dodge and Plymouth Hot Rods. Had many of them. I must say though that I love the old Pontiac Firebirds. Sweet ride!
My '68 Firebird was green like the one in this pic. The guy who owned it before me must have beat the hell out of it as I had to have a rebuilt engine put in it fairly soon after I bought it, among other continuing mechanical issues. That cost a lot of money back then as I was starting college and working part-time at the then minimum wage of $2.20 or whatever it was circa 1977 (Boston's classic first album came out in '76). Didn't matter, I loved that car anyhow. We should have a thread about our first cars and other cars we owned that we loved. I had a silver 1998 Firebird that was just as sweet as the '68, but the '68 was pure muscle car.
Man oh man, guys, this is what I love the most about being a kid in the 70's, other than females were still females for the most part and clown-world didn't exist yet.
Boston was absolutely one of my favs, and yes, I had the 8 track! I was 13 when that came out. Went out and bought it and wore it out and my parents thought I was gonna go deaf I jammed it so loud over and over. Kiss was next in line and yes, I became a huge fan for a while.
The cars from that era are still my favs. I refer to them as the Late Great V8s. What a time it was to grow up and live.
Looking back, I miss the '80s the most by a good margin, but the '70s were "interesting" I guess is the best way to put it. But for sure, girls and women were still girls and women, until sometime in the first decade of this communist, joyless, humorless century, hard to pinpoint it exactly but the demise of girly girls and healthy femininity ranks up there with any of the crimes that have been perpetrated on Americans.
Here's some 70s rock. Shot Down in Flames by AC/DC. The name AC/DC refers to different kinds of electrical current.
From Sweden, the Spotnicks.
That's the first I've heard of the Spotnicks. Nice stuff.
That style of music, instrumental electric guitar music, was popular in the early 1960s. Here's the English band The Shadows with Apache.
Here's the California band the Chantays with Pipeline.
Speaking of Swedish bands here's the Hives with Hate to Say I Told You So. Great song. Great video.
