pretty sure you've been where this song takes ya ...

check it ... sounds absolutely gorgeous played loudly on a good system, but I'm sure even on cheap earbuds, it's still a stunner.

mipso - louise (live-2015) this is damn good song, give it a spin ...

molly tuttle w/old crow medicine show - helpless (studio-2020) great Neil cover, for the Sarge!

A'course everyone else is free to enjoy ... trust me, this is awesome ...

UPDATE: Tonight's Chicken Fajita's Are Done (w/pics)!

Marinade:
Lemon & Lime Juice, Salt, Pepper, Honey, Oregano, Cumin, New Mexico Chili Powder, Garlic Powder, Onion Powder, Paprika, Olive Oil

Sadly I'z out of cilantro so the only hint of it is in the guac cause I have some Pico I made Friday left over and folded that in with the other spices I use.

Chicken Thighs started in the marinade before bed last night.

Onion, Red Bell Pepper, Poblano Pepper, diced Serrano Peppers started marinading just now, and Guac was also made just now.

I usually give both 2-3 hours in the fridge for both for flavors to meld before cooking

Thighs will go on Weber Kettle over Kingsford Blue to grill with a few Applewood chips (I'm out of Mesquite).



The Thighs Hot Off the Grill



The Noms (there were GREAT if I say so myself )


shovels & rope - birmingham (live-2012) athens georgia on a friday night ...

So, reading through the Rolling Stone 'Top 100 Best Debut Singles of All Time'

article, and I'm down to about #80.

https://www.rollingstone.com/music/music-lists/greatest-debut-songs-singles-990470/

For fun, I thought I would try to guess what their top 10 will be ... off the top of my head I believe these are all first singles from these artists, at least in the US.


Top 10:
Beatles - Please Please Me
U2 - I Will Follow
Talking Heads - Psycho Killer
Welcome to the Jungle - Guns & Roses
Simon & Garfunkel - The Sound of Silence
Bob Dylan - Blowin In The Wind
The Doors - Light my Fire or Break On Through or whichever song was first.
Led Zeppelin - Good Times Bad Times
Sex Pistols - Anarchy in the UK
*leaving a spot for hip hop which I'd likely not guess */


Some top 25 choices but likely not top 10:
REM - Radio Free Europe
Prince - Soft & Wet
The Cure - Boys Don't Cry
CCR - Susie Q
Beck - Loser
Radiohead - Creep
Eagles - Take it Easy
Vampire Weekend - A-Punk or Oxford Comma, I forget which was first

If they decide to consider the Buckingham/Nicks Fleetwood Mac incarnation a 'debut' then:
Fleetwood Mac - Rhiannon

I'll be keen to see how many I guessed right ... I'm betting those all make the list somewhere though

smooth hound smith - forever cold (2016-jam in the van) this married couple are kick ass

this is a jam right here ...

smashing pumpkins - mayonaise (1993) this song still kills to this day

i was feeling nostalgic and needed to hear something that ROCKS

yes they got too big and billy's head got WAY too big, but when siamese dream dropped, man ... they were the coolest thing there was at that time, and that disc was on my stereo for like a year straight. i still love it. gish, too. mellon collie ... eh. some songs.

and this song is, IMHO, a masterpiece among the collection of masterpieces

of course ... very loud is very highly recommended ...

studio version



and live from the '93 tour, upon which I saw them at the Warfield, SF ... on my birthday ... from 2nd row of the balcony, center ...





phosphorescent - new birth in new england (kexp-2019) dancin' in living room kinda tune

dig it baby ... anyone who says new music isn't any good any more ... really isn't looking very hard ...

in case you haven't noticed ... that's kinda the mr. L theme in this group

the barr brothers - come in the water (studio-2015) i really dig these guys work ...

They have a few albums and there's really not a bad song on any of them ...

But this one is freaking amazing ...

And I love how the 'happy ending' comes when everyone's running to the left ... the shitty ending in the first half is the one where everyone's running to the right, all terrified.

I like to think that's not a coincidence.
