CPAC 2013 - Clown

This week we’ve been entertained with the Republican version of the circus side show, otherwise known as CPAC. We’ve seen The Woman-Hating Human Turtle (Mitch McConnell), The World’s Biggest Liar (Mitt Romney), The Sheep-Headed Boy (Rand Paul) and The Wealthiest Dung Beetle (Donald Trump).

So this weekend’s music theme is about unusual and unique people, those that are beguiling, those that are strange, those that stand out in a crowd or those who are simply unforgettable.

People Are Strange – The Doors

Psycho Killer – Talking Heads

Who Are You – The Who

Far Away Eyes – Rolling Stones

She’s Not There – Santana

Nowhere Man – The Beatles

    KT, hope you feel better soon. My brain is too tired to think creatively. I did wonder if Mrs Robinson might not have been a little strange but likable.

    Whitney Houston
    One Moment in Time

  5. Simon & Garfunkel -- April Come She Will


  6. Crosby, Stills & Nash -- Guinnevere


  7. IN MEMORY OF ELIZABETH REED ~ THE ALLMAN BROTHERS BAND


    Nobody really knew who she was. Some of the members of the band used to sit in a cemetery and a play music, and they took notice of this one tombstone and decided to dedicate this wonderful piece of music to her, who was completely unknown.

  8. Tom Waits -- Martha


    Some songs bring a tear to my eyes. This is one of them. Martha is so many women and Tom is so many men. That special one that will always remain special.

  9. Willie Nelson-Angel Flying Too Close To The Ground


  10. Harry Nilsson -- Mournin’ Glory Story


  11. Joni Mitchell -- Furry Sings The Blues


  12. Kid Charlemagne- Steely Dan


    Guess who this song is about.
