Tricky Wiki Wackies

I don't usually mention the songs that I put in the sidebar, but this one was just too much fun.

It was played to me for the first time just two days after I had arrived in Stockholm. Had I heard it in Hawaii three days earlier it would have been wildly appropriate, while cruising Waikiki or sipping a cocktail at a beachside bar, but in -18 degrees with snow everywhere ... not so much. Nevertheless! It's become something of a recent favourite of mine, and I thought it was worth sharing.

Interestingly, I've never really been much of a Bette fan, but I think sometimes all it takes is something that speaks to you. Also, you have to hand it to her, the range of styles that woman can pull off is mighty impressive.

Keep an ear out for the wonderful baseline, the banjo and of course, the spoons. Then there's that awesome album art. Too great!

Tack to Kobbs for the tipoff here. ;)

No doubt Bette is fantastic. I blame my Mum for making her -sigh- "the wind beneath my wings". Anyway, issue with front page comments still up, and found a new one on single posts. I'll print screen it and email ya.

Official "Work out for Portugal" exercise begins Saturday! Or Sunday if I'm majorly hungover after Phoenix. Eeeee!

Really like the title of this post! And the song's easy enough on the ear, too. :)

Off topic, but I think you need to add a photo of where your harry potter-esque landlord sleeps in relation to your apartment. I'm fascinated!

Luke: Haha, yes I might just ... though getting said photo may be an odd challenge.

Dale: Good good, it's a fun song. ;) I just love how very peppy the whole thing is.

Sevy: Mmmexcellent! As long as your mum never showed you Beaches, all is ok. It's just - so - sad!

(Strangely enough, my captcha was 'criershi' ... creepy.)
