Monday Music Mambo: Bluesy

I wrote all my answers / responses to today’s question on a stray envelope on my desk while I was in the middle of writing a review of the 2008 Volkswagen Beetle (I so want a Beetle) for work, and then got sidetracked, and pathetic, and whiny, and never posted it.

Well, there’s still a little bit of Monday left in my timezone, so here goes:

  1. Who is your favorite blues guitarist?
    I’m torn between John Lee Hooker and B.B. King – they have different styles, and they’re both amazing, especially those gritty old vinyl recordings, where you can hear the emotion coming off each chord.
  2. What is your favorite blues song?
    This changes often. Right now, I’m really digging Fleetwood Mac’s version of “Black Magic Woman,” but I like the classic stuff, too, and Harry Connick, Jr’s version of “Do You Know What It Means (to Miss New Orleans)” is a perennial favorite.
  3. What gives you the blues?

    I woke up this morning
    (Ba da-da da-dum)
    Alone in the bed
    (Ba da-da da-dum)
    I sat up and felt it –
    (Ba da-da da-dum)
    A pain in my head
    (Ba da-da da-dum)
    The dogs were whining
    (Ba da-da da-dum)
    To go out the door
    (Ba da-da da-dum)
    I pushed back the covers
    (Ba da-da da-dum)
    Put my feet on the floor
    (Ba da-da da-dum)
    And that’s where I saw it
    (Ba da-da da-dum)
    Right there on the rug
    (Ba da-da da-dum)
    It was scurrying toward me
    (Ba da-da da-dum)
    A HUGE water bug
    (Ba da-da da-dum)

    (You get the idea….)
