First up, a tsuruloosie… Our favourite unknown band, Rock Plaza Central, last time offering up “Sexy Back” as a fun cover, have moved on to big fish, Van Halen, with their rendition of a song very near and dear to my tender heart, “Panama”. Seems like just yesterday baby & I took our first vacation together down to the once Amorican ran country to see rainforest and giant canals. How fitting, it’s like they dipped into my psychy to pull out a song they know I’d want a slowed down, near touching, variation of! Once again, they are able to do it without a hint of “making fun” in their voice! Nope, instead, they make a fun party-type song to sound like a deep soulful folk song…. Brilliant.
Oh… and Oliver, they are Canadian. Oh shit! You must be shakin’ in yer boots and poopin’ in yer pants!!!
And now, speaking of Canucks, I’ll leave you with a little live Sunset Rubdown in Massachusetts playing “Nightingale/December Song” moment…
Man, wish I could’ve been there for that.
See ya tomorrow,
