Song of the Day

"Stray Cat Strut" by Stray Cats, from Built for Speed

Here's an older video, =>HERE<= but the embedding is disabled, so you'll have to go to YouTube for it. I either saw this particular performance, or another one at the same time, because I bought the album in 1982.

The shuffle gods handed me "Stray Cat Strut" this morning, the Stray Cats' signature song, and one guaranteed to lift the spirits--they obviously knew I really needed that today (read http://is.gd/MRzx1i and http://is.gd/H1a5ZY to see why).

Such a classic. I never get tired of it, and it's hard not to sing along.

When we move back home (and maybe before then, if I can figure out the logistics), the stereo is not going to be in the loft with the TV. Which is really the stupidest place ever for it, and why we almost never use it. I've got decent speakers for the computer, so I listen to iTunes, but when I was checking to make sure I still had Built for Speed, I really wished I could listen to it. And I could, but I'd either have to have it on loud enough to hear all the way on the other side of the house (I'm sure the neighbors would enjoy it, right?), or just sit in the living room and do nothing else while I listen. Hmmm. I'm going to be thinking about this for a while. I'm sure I can come up with a solution.



I do remember Stray Cats, but the song I most remember them by is the song "Rock this Town", well I think they are the one who sang it LOL
