Those old dudes rocked the two-lead-guitars strategy. I'd try to play it but I'd prolly forget the lyrics.

Happy Mute Monday!

I love the ventures and wish I could still love Tequila... long story but it involved 9-1-1, so I try to forget it.

The UofW has adopted this song, so when I hear this I think of Football games.

Happy MM!

my favorite is the pee wee herman version - tequila is the alcohol of economy - always a cherished virtue in my book. its a happy, relatively alert , buzz. great choice. cazadorres is the best. happy MM!

I can almost see PeeWee dancing across the bar on the toes of his platform shoes...

Love the music, but like Boxer, tequila nearly did me in once - can't even deal with the smell anymore! Happy MM, and Happy Holidays!

Aunty Belle said...

Why shore'nuff! I danced to this aplenty--but now it'd throw mah back out...heh.

Happy MM!

Bear said...

Ah Surf Rock... there was a lot of that on the east coast of Aus when I was a teenager.

This is a classic MM, well done.

Troll: One of my most treasured recordings is the Ventures Play Telstar. I've played the heck out of that record.

Boxer: That's a darn shame.

K9: YES! Pee Wee is a genius. I think I've tasted about fifty bazillion tequilas in my life and I keep coming back to Cuervo 1800 Añejo.

Java: Oh, no! Another bad experience! Like K9, I find it to be one of the "cleanest" liquors around. It doesn't even hang me over. Although, I've been known to hallucinate just a wee bit under its influence.

Aunty: When I was a little girl, I used to drag my parents' portable record player into my room on early Sunday mornings (the rest of my famblee were late sleepers) and dance like crazy to this record.

Bear: I can imagine that!

Vixen: Back at cha.

pamokc: You, too, huh? "We've been together so long. I hope it wasn't just the . . . tequila." :o).

Emma: I know, huh? Rock and roll, girlfriend, rock and roll.

Fishy: Hey, thanks for pointing that out!

Troll: If I told you, you'd have to get out of your bah humbug spirit.

K9: Dude, you got it! Check your email soon.

I'm glad I didn't manage to get here yesterday or the mere mention of Tequila would have had me driving the porecelain bus. Happy Mute Monday Moi and I hope you and your loved ones have a fab Christmas.

Boxer said...

for the record, after I "recovered" I had no hang over either. But when 9-1-1 is called you kinda make a deal with your loved ones. No. More. Tequila.

A shame. My Bro calls it "liquid Valium"
