Funky Friday the 13th EP


How's Your Luck? Are you a superstitious sort - a ladder-dodger who says "hello" to Magpies and treads stealthily to avoid pesky pavement cracks? What's your take on black cats - good or bad luck? More importantly will you be taking time off and keeping yourself cocooned indoors, reducing the probability of pitfalls, pratfalls or possible hospitalization.

Wherever you are, whatever condition you're in - why not lend an ear bruised, bandaged or otherwise to these Friday the 13th anthems...

The Ventures - Superstition



Ella Fitzgerald - Knock On Wood



Jeff Beck(featuring Rod Stewart and Ron Wood)- I Ain't Superstitious

I'm with Teenage Fanclub on all this mallarkey - 'A black cat on your floor - big deal!'.

But Stevie on Sesame Street! How great is that???!!

Planet Mondo said...

Matey in the reds loving it Lil - but I reckon this storming performance would even put a smile on Oscar The Grouch's face..

It's a killer isn't Kirstie - I may have to use it in a future Halloween mix

Davy - there must have been some heads working on Sesame Street - see theJazz Spies for more evidence..

Far OUT.

Wow! These are awesome. I love them all. I don't tend to be that superstitious that I can think of. Not compared to other people I know. Have a good day. Don't let a big guy with a hockey mask come after you. :-) Cheers!

Top notch selection! I feel lucky now!

I didn't even realise that it was Friday 13th... I just love the fact that it's the same day as Red Nose Day...

Anyway, excellent tunes as usual. I think that Knock on Wood is one of those tracks that sounds good by anyone. I'm also rather partial to the Amii Stewart disco version.

There's tons more kookyness in Sesame street Davy - and don't even start me on Tomfoolery

Yikes - I'd forgotten about that Keith

Thanks ISB, Actually I could've cracked that Kylie track in - perhaps not

Oooh forgot all about that Amii Stewart versh Cocktails - great vid too - and I think she also did a version of The Letter

And [*gratuitous self-promotion alert*] this track from Sesame Street that I posted a while back is ace - http://cocktailsandrecords.net/blog/2008/05/26/learning-can-be-funky/

Planet Mondo said...

Have seen this - The Muppets do Talking Heads

Cocktails said...

Mmmm, that's a bit too scary!

Piley said...
