Musical musings

1. A poster wheatpasted on Ninth Ave. for Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young: looks like a poster for a law firm.

2. Rob Halford, hard up for cash? He should allow Trader Joe's to adapt one of his songs: "Hell-bent, hell-bent for . . . fruit leather! Only 27 cents, by the register . . . "

3. Prince should cover Pulp's "Common People."

4. Do you have your Buddha Machine yet?

5. Songs in which the singer laughs:
George Formby, "Cleaning Windows"
Bob Dylan, "Bob Dylan's 115th Dream"
The Beatles, "Maxwell's Silver Hammer"
New Order, "Every Little Counts"

There is a very subtle and moving laugh in the Velvet Underground's "Venus in Furs" that is part of that song's charms.... now you have set me off on trying to think of others....

David Bowie, "The Laughing Gnome." Bowie laughs for real at the end.

The laugh that ends Pink's "Missundastood" counts.

The laugh that kicks off "Rio" doesn't count.

Dizzyhead Brent brought up "Anarchy in the U.K."

There was another one....
