This week I was feeling a little Brian Setzer. I've loved him since way back to the Stray Cats days. If these songs don't at least make you feel like doing a little "chair dancing," check your pulse. You might be dead. ;) LOL
Might as well start it off with one of his first singles with The Stray Cats, "The Stay Cat Strut." Gosh, they were so young!
Next comes a favorite of mine from the Vavoom! Album, Americano.
Now, just to let you catch your breath for a moment. I'm going to slow it down with Gloria. As a general rule, it was pretty hard to find videos that weren't "Live." I know that I'm breaking some commandment somewhere, but I prefer the recordings. Maybe as a dancer, I prefer the consistency. In any case, I could only find Live versions of this song, but it's pretty good. :)
Next, comes what I think of as Brian Setzer's tribute to Bobby Darin. Love how it changes musical styles at the end.
And last but not least, we finish off with what has actually become my favorite Stray Cat song, Look at that Cadillac. And believe you me, Brian has a things for Cadillacs. On one of his other albums, he has another love song to one. (Unfortunately, I couldn't find a good recording of that song.)
Hope you enjoyed my tribute week to Brian. Have a good weekend!
