One Way Or Another Blondie

Texas Girl At The Funeral Of Her Father Randy Newman
Largely a list from the late seventies and early eighties, eight out of ten from The You Tubes, lots of live versions. The connecting tissue of this body of songs is how many title have parentheses, including both songs that weren't available in video form.
If I used Padre Mickey's rule of "Let's stop here, it's not going to get better", I could have let James Brown have the last word, but a Tom Waits song came after that, and I'm never going to kick Tom Waits off stage.
Have a nice Sunday.
