About this Episode

Peter Brown [00:34]
"Do You Wanna Get Funky with Me?"
Do You Wanna Get Funky with Me?
Drive 104 1977
Well do ya, punk?

The Miracles [09:33]
"I Gotta Dance to Keep from Cryin'"
Doin' Mickey's Monkey
TAMLA Records 245 1963
Greatest. Song. Of. All. Time.

Nadja/Troum [13:02]
"Part 1"
Dominium Visurgis
Denovali Records DEN59 2010
A spontaneous improvisation between the two duos recorded live in Bremen. On excellent white and black haze vinyl.

Gordon Lightfoot [25:12]
"Don Quixote"
Don Quixote
Reprise Records MS 2056 1972
I mean really, if you're going to title and album Don Quixote, I'm going to have to check out the title track. Solid if typical fare from the Canadian troubador.

Billy Squier [28:51]
"In the Night"
Don't Say No
Capitol Records ST 12146 1981
The second single from this triple platinum album that was hard to avoid in 1981.

Elton John [32:58]
"Crocodile Rock"
Don't Shoot Me I'm Only the Piano Player
MCA Records MCA-2100 1973
My instinct was to go with "Texas Love Song" but that just seems too damned depressing currently. Instead, I'm going with the this song that made it all the way to number 1 on the Hot 100. Whenever I heard this song, I just think about The Muppets.

Billy Idol [36:51]
"Dancing with Myself"
Don't Stop
Chrysalis PV 44000 1981
Well, since we're in a dancing mood now. The remixed and re-released Gen X version.

Dion DiMuci [43:00]
"Donna the Prima Donna"
Donna the Prima Donna
Columbia CL 2107 1963
I hope Dion recovered from his broken heart. There's also a cover of Ritchie Valens' "Donna" just so all the bases are covered.

The Doors [45:47]
"The End"
The Doors
Elektra EKS-74007 1967
Ok ok... I might be running out the clock on this one, but you'll understand why on the next episode.

Music behind the DJ: "Sunshine of Your Love" by Ken Thorne and his Orchestra
