Saturday Matinee – Some Donnas, La Bamba & Joe’s Garage

Woof. Yeah, that’s 10cc doing it’s best Zappadoowop attempt with “Donna.” A few days ago, “Brian” reminded me that 10cc sang what I mis-remembered as “I Wanna Be A Bus.” (See this post.)

Here are The Donnas doing their best Ramones impersonation with a puzzling and cheap video.

From The Donnas, we thought we’d find a video of Ritchie Valens singing “Donna,” but no dice. Jump search to “La Bamba” and there’s just garbage and clips of Lou Diamond Phillips limp sinking. So here’s the greatly underrated Los Lobos‘ version of the Mexican traditional song.

Since we started off with a brief reference to Zappa, here’s a double header from a 1980 concert in France. The segue line is perfect.

Be back here tomorrow for some cool stuff.
