Hmmmm... maybe I'm just a bit down today, but "Ruby, Don't Take Your Love To Town" is quite a sad song for the treatment it seems to get from Walter Brennan & Jerry Reed; those versions seem to insult someone or something; they're too poppy or smiley or something. I blame the RIAA or its predecessors.
That new version I've heard lately does it justice; that guy sounds frustrated & confused, just like the guy who came back broken from the war.

hey ken, that was the song i was thinking of. too bad i don't really like neil hannon.
Wed. 2/14/07 2:11pm
yeah., I'm not crazy about the Jerry Reed version of "Ruby." But I love anything with Walter Brennan or a Walter Brennan imitator.
If anybody feels so inclined, I'd love to know what the body count is for today's show! (The total deaths in all the songs.)

Check out Richard Cheese's sleezy lounge version of Creep. He says "friggin'" instead of "fuckin'", so you wouldn't even have to edit it.

way to go ken - david allen coe!

How I wish I could've played David Allen Coe's incest song ("Fuck You Again," I think it's called) - truly one of the most disturbing songs I've ever heard.

amber from MO:
Ahhh, domestic violence...Antony & the Johnsons' "Fists of Love" would've fit in well here. Also, kudos for the Shangri-Las! "I used to say...a tisket...a tasket...a green and yellow basket..."

the ambrose song is amazing.. keeping the .. screams? (he beating her on the subway platform? the broadway 6 platform.. the one with the "no exit" ahead sign) in the background for the break was almost too much to bear.. or were those love sounds?

The sound effects at the end of the Ambrose track were actually from the S&M sound effects collection "Tortura," which I used throughout the show as part of my talkover bed. The Ambrose track actually ends with Linda Laurie saying "Ambrose?"

What's with the censoring of Creep??
Tue. 2/27/07 1:17am
Sorry I meant 'fucking' censoring creep!

Paul - I don't know about the country you're in, but here in the USA, the government recently passed a law saying that the word "Fuck" is illegal on radio and TV, and any station that plays it could be fined as high as $325,000 per "fuck." So that magnificent version of "Creep" could generate a fine as high as $975,000 US dollars. I'll put you down for half of it. Unfortunately, WFMU can't afford the other half.
