Monday Music: the I love Helen & Shimalsky & Sasha edition

Because they introduce me to cool new music, and are willing to hear me out when I start babbling about the grand failure that is, at present, my life. This first song is like a corkscrew to my heart (thanks for the metaphor, Bob, sorry someone called the cops on you):

Tennessee – Leatherbag
Over the Rainbow – Israel Kamakawiwoole
Stuck in the Middle With You – Stealers Wheel (thanks, Norbizness!)
Bucket – Neutral Milk Hotel
Love or Confusion – Jimi Hendrix
Fortunate Son – Creedence Clearwater Revival
Rayures Venitiennes – Pascale Comelade
Ya vam rebyata rasskaju – Dina Verni
It’ll All Work Out – Tom Petty
Lucky Town – Bruce Springsteen

Here’s a video set to Dina Verni singing “Madame Banzha”:

Look Verni up sometime. She had an amazing life. And not a grand failure either. Something to aspire to. 😉

  1. btw its Fortunate Son…how are things going on your end? I heard about your plan to visit Canada, I am envious…

  2. Unless that’s a weird cover, I’m pretty sure that Stealers Wheel (featuring Gerry Rafferty) did Stuck in the Middle With You, although it is often misattributed to Dylan.
