It's time to start talking about It's A Kazoo Christmas again.
In case you're not familiar, the basic idea is this: some friends and I build a kazoo choir to play Christmas carols on a December afternoon while selling kazoos for charity. Bridgeport Village has donated their gazebo to us for the afternoon of Saturday December 15th, which should make for a superb location. The charity we're raising money for is Portland's own Kinship House.
Portlanders helping Portlanders - how cool is that? I think it's plenty cool, and I'd love for you to be a part of it. If you're interested, email me.
Since today is Monday, I have a new playlist. I'd have gone with a kazoo playlist, but there isn't much (or any) current music featuring the kazoo, so I'm going with the next best thing: a harmonica playlist.
Check it out.
There are some really great lyrics in this week's playlist. The Lowest Of The Low's "Black Monday" is an all time favorite of mine, but if there's a lyric to point out in this list, it's by Jackie Greene:
now i don't really care about your hot-blooded sister
i'm sure theres a man for to love her and miss her
i didn't mean nothing, i just happened to kiss her
but honey i was thinking about you
Awe, that's almost kind of sweet.
