Five Songs, Part 36

So … there is a strong chance, I realize, that no one will be reading Five Songs, since, tho the majority of you who have jobs, it’s now something called the Fourth of July holiday. Of course, in my part of the world, every day’s a holiday — just another day, just another weekend, only with a lot fewer people around.

But like everything else I do with my life, I’ll go through the motions here, if at least to preserve some sort of routine, some sort of normality, some degree of sanity.

On a somber note, as I was calling up songs, I did some clicking on “Hey Sah-Lo-Ney,” which Detroit Cobras fans might recognize from their re-recorded version under the title “Hey Sailor.” And I found out that Mickey Lee Lane (Schriber), who wrote and originally recorded the tune, passed away March 18 at 70. But he left one hell of a song.

Anyway, here goes. Enjoy it, whoever’s out there:

Georgie, Don’t You Know — Outrageous Cherry

Coney Island Baby — The Excellents

Gimme a Little Sign — Brenton Wood

Hey Sah-Lo-Ney — Mickey Lee Lane

Fourth of July — X
