Ozark Mountain Daredevils - Spaceship Orion
...one of those nights before a little trip when you stay up late packing and getting your affairs in order so you can relax on the trip, and then when all the affairs are satisfactorily in order and it's finally time for bed you listen to that one OMD track to bear you aloft to dreamland...

The Staple Singers: God Bless the Children
This plays over the final few minutes of Hal Ashby's The Landlord, one of the greatest gentrification themed movies out there - are there others? - and one containing the following gem of an outburst, from a son to his mother -

The Slickers - Johnny Too Bad
Sheridan DuPre XVII was talking about this tune, as he'd heard the Taj Mahal version in a mix of Greg's but scandalously didn't know the OG. So, here you go. Lovingly ripped from my dad's copy of the LP.
. . . "walking down the road with a pistol in your waist, Johnny you're too bad . . ." warn the Slickers, and they should know: when the lawyer was getting copyright clearance on that tune, one of the writers was underground. The other was in death row.
