bad santa

It's Smokey Robinson's birthday.

Hear versions of "You've Really Got a Hold on Me" over here. Since the Zombies version segues into (a real fave of mine) "Bring It On Home" (I so love the harmonies & trade-off/answer stuff in that song), the blogger also posts Sam's original of and a cover of it by She and Him. Whose "You've Really Got a Hold" is in the other list, too.

Also, over here, possibly to trip you out royally, is the Miracles' (bizarre, bad) version of "Wichita Lineman."

Fidel sure knows how to knock Kosovo out of the banner headline, don't he. But it looks like there's maybe some escalation going on---a couple of border crossings being burned.
