Josh’s Musings – Dusty in Memphis

Dusty Springfield – Dusty in Memphis: 3.5 stars (bump for good vibe)

Precon: I don’t think I know who this person is. The name sounds familiar, but like Chris, I figured it was a guy. Possibly an old WWF wrestler.

Favorite Track: Don’t Forget About Me. Might have been Windmills if it wasn’t for that Santana-ish guitar.
Least Favorite: In the Land of Make Believe. Don’t know what’s with her singing in this one. Is that a sitar? Everything seems off.

There were so many songs in the 60’s and 70’s that were blatantly about screwing but maintained a cheerful, positive vibe. It was a simpler time.
She has a very cool sounding voice.
Oh ok that’s who it is.
All these songs seem to end before they have to. I’m not saying that’s a bad thing, it’s actually a pretty good idea even on a good song, but I kept expecting there to be another minute and a half and then it would just fade out.
Windmills of Your Mind is pretty cool except for the guitar. I like the way it kept building right up until the end.
No Easy Way Down is a nice one.

He may look like just an ordinary pizza flingin’ oven jockey, but no—this dude can lay the smack down with the bets of em’. He’s Josh, the "Brick Oven", and he’s the owner and head cook at Josh’s Joint. Who does he lay the smack down on exactly? His customers, that’s who. Order something the wrong way—catch a body blow. Ask for extra garlic in a rude manner—smack to your grill space. Walk into his joint like you own the place—your head goes through the soda fountain machine right quick. This motherfu*ker doesn’t mess around. He once gave a dude an atomic wedgie and stuffed his face in a toilet just for calling him “chief”. Come in his restaurant talkin’ bout, “can I get some garlic knots”, while he’s watching Judge Judy, and you just might get your ass handed to you with a side of Josh’s famous pizza sauce. If by some miracle you are able to duck his punches or fight off his attacks, you then might be invited to his afterhours fight club, which he holds in the back alley behind the restaurant.
