Friday On My Mind

By the time ya read this, I'll already be hurtling down the I-5 towards LA for the weekend...




I'll be staying smack dab downtown...staying on Olive st, which no longer looks like this


or this...


but more like this...


In fact I suspect it'll be mind numbingly dull perhaps, but at least with supposed "4 star" corporate comfort upgrade ...



here's a few pix from the last time I was down there...










Here's some tunes i'll be jamming in the car tonight on the long 5 or 6ish hour journey and likely I'll have some new stuff to crank when i come back...


1st up, the Australian band whose founding members in the 70's helped manage their nephew's band AC/DC and get a bit o' recognition...

Easybeats - Friday On My Mind

Here's a remix of Portland Ore's sons of liberty who helped us fight the british invasion in the 60's...

Paul Revere & The Raiders - Kicks (Millenium Remix)

I just can't get enough of that drunken brit chanteuse

Amy Winehouse - You Know I'm No Good ( Skeewiff Mix )

and here's a fun Quincy Jones cover from the British DJ crew of Al & El who did the remix above

Skeewiff - Soul Bossanova

and one more mash up for the road...

gotta go...

Outkast vs Marvin Gaye - So Fresh & So Clean vs Let's Get It On

I'm completely obsessed with Amy Winehouse. I've listened to her every day for like a month now. I have tickets to see her May 8. Weeeeee!

Okay...a few months later than this blog, but I just found your weblog today.
Downloaded "Friday on My Mind". Great song from when i was 16...
I was at highschool then, and for English lessons we had to write a paper (I am living in the Netherlands).
So...The Easybeats were in the top 10, and I started my paper with "Monday morning feels so bad...ev'rybody seems to nag me...etc etc."
The 1st verse.
The song is still one of my favourites..
Thanks for sharing the mp3.
