Flexible Flyer Flexible Flyer by Brian Dewan (from The Tarquin Records All Star Holiday Extravaganza, Tarquin Records, 2000)
I love this verse:
Grease those rails with a block of wax
Leave a pair of trails like railroad tracks
My runners are sharp, so listen to me
Stay out of my path, or I’ll cut you in three
Kinda brings me back to those carefree childhood days.
Eleanor Gerbil by Monty Harper (from Paws Claws Scales & Tales, Monty Harper, 2006)
If Sir Paul were dead today, he’d be rolling around in his grave! “Aaaaaah, look at all the lonely rodents…”
Roller Derby Saved My Soul by Uncle Leon and the Alibis (from Roller Derby saved My Soul, 2007)
“Saved your soul”? That’s all it took was a little rolling violence? OK…
Pelican Parade by Allen Toussaint (from Happy Times in New Orleans, Soul Jam Records, 2011)
Happy times in New Orleans, indeed. The citizens get to keep their NBA team, and the team gets nicknamed for a bird that Chief Ornithologist Petchesky insists is the baddest of all birds. Let the Audubon temps roullez!
Main Theme from Hoosiers (from Hoosiers, Original Motion Picture Soundtrack, 1986)
This is not in circulation anymore, and a quick glance at Amazon reveals that original vinyl lps of this are going for $150. Amazing.
O Tannenbaum by John Hart (from Yule Struttin: A Blue Note Christmas, Blue Note, 1990)
