Saturday Jams: The Late-late edition

A while back, Rob was bitten; not by a radioactive spider but by an idea to post a weekly article about a few songs that he really likes. There are so many possibilities that the series could go on forever, and so Saturday Jams was born.


Yeah, I’m not going to give you the sob story about how I burned the candle at both ends Friday night, posting this and that for different blog challenges because I had it all laid out in my head. I’m not going to mention how I had to sleep in Saturday morning and then had oh – twenty minutes to get Saturday Jams out? I couldn’t do it, and here’s why: I chose a subject and failed to find any satisfying content.

Really? What a wreck. Then my time ran out, I had to work eight hours, came home, ran, ate dinner, yadda yadda yadda, built a Lego car. You guys – you don’t know any of that, and I’m not telling you. Instead, I’m making a lateral move. I do Saturday Jams, one way or another. Well, if I get hit by a bus . . .

You know what? Let’s jump right into the original pitch. What’s black and blue and red all over? Cajun Louisiana’s hyper-diversified music style: Zydeco. It’s the gulf coast’s own brand of polka, and I have some friends who are going to tell you all about it. You’re not ready for this? Mais non ma cherie, just bust out your washboard and wooden spoons! We’re going to do this whether you’ve got your boots on or not.


Here’s a classical piece, with some commentary at the ending:


One more:


If you’re interested in seeing more singing muppet stuff, I’ve been pinning a bunch of it to my Pinterest board called “Singing Muppets”.

You know what’s really exciting (to me)? The YouTube channel MuppetsStudio posts new content periodically, and the last one mentions that they’re filming a new movie called Muppets Most Wanted. Yaaaaaay! I’m clapping! I hope you all enjoyed your Saturday!
