“Once There Was A Way To Get Back Homeward…”

Monday morning McCartney with a smashing live rendition of “Golden Slumbers,” “Carry That Weight,” and “The End.” Mark Knopfler of Dire Straits and Eric Clapton on guitars, an absolutely amazing Phil Collins on drums, and the orchestra and choir led by none other than George Martin at the Royal Albert Hall for a 1997 charity benefit.

How We Gonna Pay…?

Monday Morning, waking up hyperactive, the power is out and last year’s rent is due.

The frenetic choreography is over the top for me, but the music and lyrics as sung by the 2008 Broadway cast of Jonathan Larsen’s Rent are still zippy.

“Let’s Not Be L-7”: Wooly Bully

Monday morning, Matty told Hattie about the thing she saw, as reported by Sam the Sham (aka Domingo Samudio) and the Pharaohs.

This is from a performance on the Mike Douglas Show out of Philadelphia, which unlike most variety shows of the era, had performers sing live rather than lip-synch.

I think it was on the Patty Duke Show where I first learned that “L-7” meant “square,” because if you put your two hands together, one with your fingers in an “L” shape and the other upside down as a “7,” they formed the image of a square.

Ever-Reliable Wikipedia tells us it’s Butch Gibson on the saxophone.
