Sh!t Song Of The Week “Answering Machine”

HOLMES

Today’s shit song of the week is Rupert Holmes’s “Answering Machine”. This song may have been the B-Side to “Escape (The Peña Colada Song)” which was used in the hilarious movie “Dirty Work” during a bar fight scene. Although I have used the song “Answering Machine” as my voice mail message one time as a goof, the chorus of the song is “leave your name and number and I’ll try to get back to you. You have 30 seconds to talk to me before we’re through”. It is a cocaine decision, light FM, shitty song and it deserves to be in the anals of Joup’s Sh!t Song Of The Week. Just give it a listen and tell me what you think after the beep.

I've_Got_My_Own_Album_to_Do_-_Ron_WoodThe Joup Friday Album Ronnie Wood “Got My Own Album To Do” 1974 Warner Brothers Records

Ronnie Wood is a celebrated guitarist best known for his work as a bass guitarist and songwriter with The Jeff Beck group, vocalist and guitarist for The Faces and – finally – landing his dream job playing guitar and singing with The Rolling Stones (his favorite band). Ronnie Wood is a known figure in the world of rock and roll but is a very underappreciated songwriter and guitarist. Cry a river for Ronnie, right? Who cares? I do!

The Joup Friday Album – Queen Latifah ‘Nature of a Sista’ ‘

Nature_Of_A_Sista_album_cover 2There aren’t a lot of options for culture in Cowtown, circa 1990s. The Internet was still Telnet, and the dial tone determined whether or not you were going to be able to get your Furry-muck on that evening. But ’90s girls, please join me in a moment of silence for Sassy magazine. Sassy, giving today’s Teen Vogue its legitimate activism-lite marching orders. Sassy, which later evolved into the execrable Jane.

Digressions aside, as a white Midwestern gal of Gen X, Sassy was my window to a world beyond poof bangs and the vocational school rejects who mooed at me in the hallways. I devoured every issue, intent on filling my brain with activism, culture, and music.
