THE 7-YEAR-ITCH MIX: FALL 2007

The dog days are over; it's the first day of fall... and it's raining cats & dogs.  But as gnawing nostalgia cannot so easily be washed away, here appear 21 supremely supernatant songs first catalogued some seven years previous.  (A dog's age, one might say.)

Rest assured:  "Cats & dogs" not withstanding, innocent visitors to this exotic pet shop of sounds will not be subjected to Ted Nugent's "Cat Scratch Fever," Harry Chapin's "Cat's in the Cradle," Tom Jones' "What's New Pussycat?," Nat King Cole's "The Ballad of Cat Ballou," or Cat Stevens' "I Love My Dog."

Likewise:  Whether your preference is for man's best friend or baby's worst enemy, you will be relieved to hear that there shall be no mention of Baha Men's "Who Let the Dogs Out?," Lobo's "Me and You and a Dog Named Boo," Rufus Thomas' "The Dog," Rufus Thomas' "Walking the Dog," Rufus Thomas' "Somebody Stole My Dog," Rufus Thomas' "Can Your Monkey Do the Dog?," or Ted Nugent's "Dog Eat Dog."  [And don't even get me started on Nat King Cole's "Open Up the Doghouse (Two Cats Are Coming In)."]

And thus:  Like raindrops on roses and whiskers on kittens, these are a few of my favorite things from my BEST OF JULY, AUGUST, and SEPTEMBER 2007 mixes...

LOVE'S LABOR'S LOST

[Argle bargle!  This computer change-over has proved rather aggressively vexing to my liquor-laced brain.  A "clusterfuck," as Shakespeare may have phrased it.  Alas, I did not receive any of the complaints, requests, or questions that may or may not have been lodged in the COMMENTS section of the previous two postings, as those were sent to my previous (now defunct) e-mail address.  That issue has since been remedied, so please feel free to complain, request, or question away.  Oh, and... here's music...]
