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.

IN MEMORY OF ELIZABETH REED ~ THE ALLMAN BROTHERS BAND

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Sp1nyDF9Wak

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.

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.
