An Unusually Early (And Probably in Need of Antibiotics) Clue to the New Direction

Off to the City of Brotherly Love to soak up some much needed culture at The Barnes. And I won't be back until the morrow, although (via wi-fi) I may be checking in from time to time to see how you guys are progressing.

That being the case, and from sometime in the 70s, please enjoy The Divine Miss M, a/k/a the irrepressible Bette Midler, and her touching ode to tropical romance and STDs, "Fiesta in Rio."

Hey, like I said -- it was the 70s; we were all a little over the top.

In any case, as always, a coveted PowerPop No-Prize will be awarded to the first reader who gleans the clip's relevance to the theme of tomorrow's Weekend Listomania.

Love the Barnes. Hate what they're gonna do to it. This theme probably has something to do with clap tracks.

Melodies about maladies?

Songs about diseases...I like it.

But nooo....

Ken J Xenozar said...

Songs about holidays,e.g. 4th of July.

Noam Sane said...

Chrissie Hynde wanted to call her band "Mike Hunt and the Honorable Discharge". But went with The Pretenders instead. Probably for the best.

Anyway. Songs about foreign places.

Songs referring to applause (or lack thereof)?

Songs with foreign words in the title?

Songs with Rio in the title? (Like that Roger McGuinn thing.)

Sex songs?

I think the clapping idea was correct.

songs about people who fall and can't get up? AP

Songs with the best hand claps. Like my boyfriend's back.

Okay, been gone all day, but that still hasn't eased the pain I felt before I left, despite taking in some astounding art at the Barnes.

By which I mean that chiveni got it right when he said "probably has something to do with clap tracks."

First comment out of the box at 7:34 AM, which means barely twenty minutes after I put the damn thing up.

I hate you, sir or madam, but despite that your coveted No-Prize is winging its way to you by Air Vulture as we speak.
