Song of the Week: A Friend in Weed

A couple months ago, I mentioned the band 7Horse was the opening act for a Kenny Wayne Shepherd concert I attended. They played this song during their set, introducing it as being inspired by their travels through the town of Weed, California.  Though the lyrics prove that statement was made with tongue planted firmly in cheek.

MST3K Friday: Fugitive Alien Song

Last week, I watched both Fugitive Alien and Star Force: Fugitive Alien II from MST3K.  It's the only two-part episode in the history of the series.  Here's a song from one of the host segments.  The music you are about to hear is from the actual movies. The lyrics, however, are pure MST3K.

"They tried to kill him with a forklift."

Song of the Week: Moonlight Becomes You

Bing Crosby is known mostly these days as a Christmas crooner.  But in his heyday, Crosby was the number one entertainer in the world. A multimedia star, from 1934 to 1954 Crosby was a leader in record sales, radio ratings, and motion picture grosses.  He had 396 chart singles, including 41 #1 hits.

This week's song comes from the third Hope/Crosby "Road" picture:  Road to Morocco.
