The Real Ritchie Valens - La Bamba

A summertime party at our place isn't complete without a few tunes for the tragically short Ritchie Valens career. If you have any faves send along as I am making a "Summer Songs for the big BBQ" playlist here, cheers now.

FUTURE by Todd Rundgren

I love the clip/movie that goes with Todd Rundgren's very Eno sounding tune. Both are great takes of looking back at our alleged future.

JACK NITZSCHE -"The Lonely Surfer" (1963)

I have no idea why a small-town Ontario kid like me had such a fascination with "surfer" music ...not really the Beach Boys. This movie was one I saw at the little local movie theatre (The Capitol) and I got hooked.
