Five Songs, Part 67

February 17, 2012

Well, welcome to this week’s Five Songs.

A couple tunes have meanings cryptic to anyone but me. One is just here because it’s a great song (and an overlooked ’90s gem). One is a tribute to Kearney Barton, the recently departed Seattle sound engineer who sat on the boards for some of the best of the early punk sounds of the Pacific Northwest, including The Sonics and The Wailers … and this obscure garage classic my New Haven pals The Double Naught Spys used to play in the day. And one is for Mardi Gras.

Now go have fun … or, as they say in New Orleans, laissez les bon temps roulez!

Celestial the Queen — Blue Oyster Cult
