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.

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.

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.”
I’ve had this song stuck in my head for about five days now.
I thought I would share for Feel Good Friday.
The Newbeats with “Bread and Butter.” I’m loving the lead singer’s blonde fro and those skinny ties.

It’s Good Friday, so I thought I’d post a song with GOOD in the title for Feel Good Friday.
How about Little Richard performing “Good Golly Miss Molly” with a little “Lucille” thrown in for “good” measure.
It’s a performance from France in 1966.
I heard this on Lightning 100 last week while cruising through Nashvegas on my way to Murfreesboro for the TSSAA girls state basketball tournament.
It’s stuck with me ever since, so I thought I would share it with you.
Norah Jones performing “It’s Gonna Be” from The Fall album she released in late 2009.
I love the organ in this one. I think that’s what pulled me in.
The performance is from “Later With Jools Holland.”

It’s a really short one, but good luck getting this ear-worm erased from your brain pan after listening.
Yma Sumac – Gopher Mambo. Hey, gophers aren’t exactly squirrels, but they’ve got to be related somewhere down the line.
If you want more Yma (and who wouldn’t) there are tons of tunes at her official Web site – Yma Sumac.
Her vocal range was astounding, reaching up to five octaves. Amazing.
And she was one of the original divas too.
