FLA primaries.


The Republican Primary in Florida made me think of this song by Wilco, Monday. It's on their "most excellent" album, Being There. They take the name from the 1979 movie of the same name - which was one of Peter Seller's last movies. Trailer is below. It's worth a look.
Monday:
Choo-choo Charlie had a plenty good band but he couldn't understand why no

one would go

A world record players on a tour of Japan, Charlie fixin' his van with the

left arm tan

He said

Monday, I'm all high, get me out of FLA

In school, yeah, I fooled ya, now I know I made a mistake

Blister on a turnpike, let me by, I only wanna wonder why when I don't die

Ewww, I shot ya, yeah, I know, I only wanna go where my wheels roll

Monday, I'm all high, get me out of FLA

I fooled ya, in school yeah, now I know I made a mistake

Everybody's wonderin', "where he'd go?" He must be down in Pensacola

hidin' from the snow

The world record players on a tour of Japan, Charlie's fixin' his van,

he's waitin' for a postcard

And he said

Monday, I'm all high, get me out of TLA

Well, I cut class, in school yeah, now I know I made a mistake

I made a big mistake

Alright

Yeah, alright

Alright

(Man, I've been listen to Creedence Clearwater Rivival)

Son of a.....

I liked that song...I'm ashamed to say I don't know much Wilco...mostly through junky and Barb (Barb Zombie...you should check out her blog sometime, I think you might like it).

Barb does have a good site. I'll give her a bit more time.

Wilco does the music for VW car commercials too - check them out.
