I'll take that as a 'yes' to my non-rhetorical question ;)

normally I don't ever plan nominations ahead, but for this one I always make an exception, not because I'm a halloween fan, but because it would be weird to nominate them at any other time of the year ;)

Heya Tom, it's Bob,

From the office down the hall.

Good to see you buddy,

How've ya been?

Things have been okay for me,

Except that I'm a zombie now.

Really wish you'd let us in.

I think I speak for all of us when I say I understand

Why you folks might hesitate to submit to our demands,

But here's an FYI - you're all gonna die, screaming.

Bloodletting (The Vampire Song) ~ Concrete Blonde (1990) youtube

I got the ways and means

to New Orleans

I'm going down by the river

where it's warm and green

I'm gonna have a drink, and walk around

I got a lot to think about oh yeah oh yeah

I have to plan out my nominations ahead of time or else I'd forget what I was planning to nominate in the first place. If I hear a song or get an idea, I write it down, then check to see if it's made it before. If not, I pencil it in for the upcoming week or weeks, depending on what day it is.

1. Candy Man - Roy Orbison [smaller] . . Probably Roy's most upbeat number. Always enjoyed the je ne sais quoi of how this song fits together.[/smaller]

2. Rock Steady - Aretha Franklin [smaller] . . What it is, What it is, What it is. Dig the horns.[/smaller]

3. God Gave Rock 'n' Roll To You - Argent

4. Only You Know And I Know - Delaney and Bonnie & Friends

5. Mama Said - The Shirelles

6. Sunlight - The Youngbloods

7. You Can Leave Your Hat On - Joe Cocker [smaller] . . Still like Randy Newman's original better, but J C can do no wrong in bazooka's book. [/smaller]

8. St James Infirmary - Allen Toussaint

9. I've Been Lonely Too Long - The Rascals

10. Fantasy - Earth, Wind, and Fire
