Joladadijoladadijoladadijoladadi Joladadijoladadi-jo-o-ooh! . . .

It's fitting and a bit surreal.  The Gadfly was driving his car between work-sites today and this tune poppped on the local FM MOR Rock radio station.  The Gadfly had heard this song one time before in his life and since he was only around 13 or 14 at the, all he knew was that it was a "funny" and weird song for sure, but it was the coolest shit his musically immature ears had ever heard - it was absolutely mind-blowing.  And then The Gadfly discovered AC/DC and KISS and the song was all but long forgotten.  Anyhow - this song came out at the height of Nixon's Watergate scandal in the 1970's and so it jibes perfectly with the present time.  It's just not a song that you typically hear anymore on the commercialized corporate FM rock radio stations - it's that bizarre.

Go watch and listen to the whole thing, beginning to end, and then tell The Gadfly that this song isn't the consummate soundtrack to what's currently going on in our insane asylum of a government and our numbskull culture right now.  This tune is all at once manic, it's ridiculous, it's hilarious, it's drawn out, it's exhausting.  It also has a pretty quick ending after the punishing performance portion.

Enjoy, and let's hope the quick ending to this song bodes well for an equally quick ending to our currently ongoing national nightmare and clownish fuckhead-fest.

Back soon with some somewhat more substantive observations.
