A few laughs
First up is NOT exactly what I was looking for, I was actually looking for "Leave Stockholm" by Gabba, a positively wonderful set of Abba tunes done Ramones-style.....I KNOW I have it here somewhere, when I find it I WILL put it up, it's a "must-hear", trust me......but, settling for maybe second best, we have The Ramouns also great "Rockaway Beachboys", in which tunes such as "Fun Fun Fun" "Surfin Safari" and "Help Me Rhonda" get Ramones-style workover. It's a funny joke, once......Gabba is better, I swear I need to find it.
OK, lets wrap this up with a disc from England's The Rotters.....they churned out some fairly pedestrian goof-ball punk in the early 1980's (evidently they are still at it).....I have included here the album "Wrench to the Nuts", with it's song titles such as "My Penis Hurts" and "Please Don't Probe Me with the Butt Scope Doctor", but the reason I'm including this one is the bonus single I'm attaching to the album, the legendary "Sit on My Face Stevie Nicks", which if I remember got Lindsay Buckingham pissed off enough to threaten legal action and get the track pulled (Or something, don't feel like looking up the specifics)
Nothing life changing here, but just felt like putting some humor up there today......pleaes comment on these if they are new to you, or if you fond memories of any of them.
