Stax of slacks / 72 years is a loooong wait (Well done Swans)

In the aftermath of seeing Blues Explosion rip up Koko this week as part of the Don't Look Back series, here's Major Leaguer's top five songs about slacks, pants, trousers...

5. Dirty Jeans - Magic Dirt
4. Baggy Trousers - Madness
3. Bellbottoms - JSBX
2. Hot Pants - James Brown
1. Short Shorts - The Royal Teens (yes, this wins by a country mile!)

Oh, musn't go without quickly mentioning the good work of Mr Leo Barry from Sydney. Well done Sydney. I'm sure some regular Major Leaguer vistors woke up with sore heads this morning ;)

You got it right this time my friend! Big Daddy says "Carn the Swans/Bloods!" Finlay agrees-"Woof! Woof!"

Sister Leaguer said...

Since this is a music blog after all, here's a Top 5 'Swansongs' for your GF weekend - all cheesy and all of which I've heard in the last 48 hours:

5. Born to Try (gag me Delta)
4. My City of Sydney (off-key as always)
3. Heroes (yawn)
2. We are the Champions (ditto)
1. Cheer, cheer the Red and the White...onwards to victory!('nuff said)

NB - no Eagle Rock(ho, ho, ho!) And the sweetest music of all? Listening to grudging praise from Victorians!

Yes. Wel done Swans. (I don't really know what that means.)

I just wanted to say "hi" to Daddy and Sister Leaguer.

ANd surely, "Ride a White Swan," should be in there, no?

Euan said...

Yes, I should really say hi to Daddy to. I have just gorged myself on 3 and a half hours of Bob Dylan visuals.....i am spent!

'Ride a White Swan'. Nice choice, and duly noted.

Big Daddy says; Thanks for the Dylan Bootleg Euan, On the car stereo to and from work every day; brilliant- looking forward to the Scorsese doco.
And once again "cheer, cheer, thr Red and the White!"

Sister Leaguer said...

Hey Houman! Or should I say 'Hola Senor H'. How's life in your corner of this blue dot in space?

Apologies for the loose Cygnet-talk and foolish behaviour from Clan M. It's a once-every-72-year thang...

As for the Dylan-related rubbish however, I shall politely abstain...


H. said...

Looking up, Claire! Finally got proper work, so can breathe again... (Hope I didn't speak to soon... used to the carpet being pulled out at the moment.)

Susanne and baby say "hi" also.
