The Smiling Hour (Doo Wop That Thing)
Can you wear a hat? I can't wear a hat. Hence it was ear-hurtingly cold Westlondoning with the girlies today, stall holders boxing up early, all that. Faint flurries and a leaden sky - one cherry tree in bloom.
This is great - as heard by me this week as played by Lou Reed on WPIX-FM New York in late January 1979: well worth your take-away attentions (he takes listener calls! he asks a guy not to swear! his friend John (Cale) drops by!).
I could develop a 'thing' for music like this.
