The Carolina Chocolate Drops make their Feel Good Friday debut here at the squirrel’s nest.
It takes them a few seconds to get tuned up, but once they do, it’s top notch and quite possibly the bee’s knees.
Tap your feet and enjoy a little Salty Dog.

I was listening to Terry Gross on NPR’s Fresh Air on Thursday and they had a wonderful piece on singer Sugar Pie DeSanto.
I decided then and there that this would be my Feel Good Friday song.
Tonight I want to go the party Sugar Pie is about to attend and watch her dance all night long.
Oh, and I don’t have a clue why all the visuals in the video are shots of vintage scooters. Not a clue, but they’re pretty cool too.

Here’s your dose of Feel Good Friday.
It’s a heavy, heavy monster sound that will get you to move your feet.
Madness with “One Step Beyond.”
Tiger Woods has now officially apologized in front of the cameras for his personal indiscretions.
In honor of that, how about a song with Sorry in the title not once but twice.
You’ll have to watch it multiple times to actually meet the equivalent number of apologies necessary for each and every one of Tiger’s affairs.
Nothing says “Sorry” like a bunch of orange-clad Filipino prisoners dancing in unison with teenage girls on hand to watch. I’m a bit confused by the young female audience.
For more information about the prison dance routines, visit Byron F Garcia.

It’s been exactly four years since I typed the opening salvo on this blog. I’d like to think I have helped pollute the Internet and make it a place unsafe for the rest of the world.
This blog has introduced me to a host of new characters, and I’ll always be thankful for those who’ve visited here, whether they’ve regular visitors or just passing by in a virtual whirlwind.
In honor of the anniversary, I’ll be partying In Da Club like it’s my birthday.

I heard part of this song this morning while in the truck. I sang along until I turned the key to get out of the vehicle.
I wanted to relive the whole thing, so, lucky you, I’m sharing it as my Feel Good Friday tune.
The Talking Heads with “Stay Up Late”.
