Bottomless Popcorn tonight : Besame mucho
For tonight's Popcorn playlist go to LASER radio or the Bottomless Popcorn playlist.
Great songs again like the instrumental The Cliff Davis Sextet - Kenessa or Mark Alamo - Only an image of you (...although I have a lot of pictures of other girls...I also want a picture of you...).
Sam Cooke's - Cupid is a well known song. It always 'strikes' me when I hear that arrow go .... :-)
I only know Billy Brown as a Rock'a'billy/rock'n'roll artist. I wonder how Crazy heart will sound.
So take a look at the playlist. My personal 'rate' is just a small 75%.... What's yours ??
Saturday at exactly 20 hours local_CET time Theo Dumoulin starts again. You can be live present if you JOIN us (click there on the 'listen' button) !
This way you get the internet stream directly in your Winamp or Mediaplayer.
You can also go to the LASER stream page and their stream.
Theo gives, amongst a lot of other fine songs, airplay to Flamingos ft Tommie Hunt - Besame mucho.
On CD UNIVERSE you can buy at the small price of just $6.45 Flamingos - I Only Have Eyes For You which contains this great song.
This time I decided to make a compilation of this particular song. Is it covered a hundred times, a thousand times ? More ??? Maybe mr Mellowness will tell us (he can, but will he be so kind .. ?).
All further info about Besame mucho can be obtained at Wikipedia or below.
