Feel Good Friday – Salty Dog

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.

Feel Good Friday – The Offspring

Riding to a game last night, I flipped the radio around the dial until I ran across this tune. Cranked it up, sang along (Give it to me baby) and put a smile on my face for a few minutes.

Feel Good Friday – Soulful Dress

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.

Soulful Dress.

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.

Big Boned Feel Good Friday Edition

I made you suffer earlier this week with a female singer who spells her name differently, so now I’ll treat you to another siren with unusual spelling.

From the Ke$ha and Star Trek “Tik Tok” mashup to kd lang’s “Big Boned Gal.”

Happy Friday everyone!

Feel Good Friday – Hey, Soul Sister

Hey, I haven’t visited with you fine folks in quite a while. My apologies for not foisting my opinions and ideas and funky finds onto your cyber space in recent weeks.

So, I’m back today to present a Feel Good Friday tune.

It’s been stuck in my brain for weeks. Nothing dramatic or edgy, just a catchy tune from Train. Choo-Choo!

It’s “Hey, Soul Sister.”

And, if you like the way the lyrics are animated in the Train video, check out this Muto video of animation painted along sidewalks and buildings by the artist Blu.

Feel Good Friday – One Step Beyond

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.”

Feel Good Friday – Strawberry Letter 23

It’s Friday and I spent the morning at the 73rd Annual West Tennessee Strawberry Festival Parade in Humboldt, Tennessee today.

Lots of corn dogs, lemonade, candidates and marching bands in attendance. One parade exec I heard speaking was pleased with the turnout considering the horrible weather and flooding parts of the community endured just days ago.

In honor of the strawberry, today I bring you The Brothers Johnson.It’s from a performance on a Dutch televsion show in 1977.
