Saturday Matinee – The Osmonds, Imelda May, The Black Keys

The Osmonds‘ “Crazy Horses.” I dare you to watch the whole thing. I couldn’t handle it. Now for some eye & ear bleach:

Imelda May‘s take on Johnny Burnette‘s take on Tiny Bradshaw‘s “Train Kept A-Rollin.”

The Black Keys, live at Abbey Road 2009. That should make up for the first vid, and with that, I’m out for now. Happy Passover & Easter to all.

Saturday Matinee – The Beatnix, Zappa, Carl Douglas, The Black Keys & the Streamline Rockers

One of my favorites of The PreFab Four (posted previously).

What the heck. Here’s Zappa’s version.

Here’s to the Royal Disco Wedding for our friends across the pond: “There was funky Chinamen from funky Chinatown.”  Great lyrics from Carl Douglas.  Reminds me of National Lampoon’s classic “Have a Kung-Fu Christmas.”

Heh. The Black Keys are my current favorites in the land of  retrorock, and they fit right in with the Soul Train motif. [Tip o’ the tarboosh to Bunkessa]

And as long as we’re going retro, here’s some rockabilly from the UK: The Streamline Rockers.

That makes five for this episode of the  Saturday Matinee, and with that I’m out. Have a great weekend folks, and see you back here tomorrow for more fun.
