Sasha's Current Playlist (from "The Lies Have It")

Random mention of the late sixties/early seventies...
Truckin' by the Greatful Dead ... Wavy Gravy is what brought it to mind.  That, and tie-dye.
The Ballad of Lucy Jordan by Marianne Faithfull.  Super Mom meets Mid-Life Crisis.
She Came in through the Bathroom Window (not really mentioned... and if I have to tell you that it's by the Beatles, then you're too young to be reading the Sasha Jackson Mysteries).

Trio of "moon" songs inspired by plumber-butt:
Moon River - forever thankful to Johnny Mercer for this one!
Moondance - Van Morrison, it would be impossible not to include this in any list of songs with the word "moon".
Fly Me to the Moon - Frank Sinatra.

Dixie Duo:
The Night They Drove Old Dixie Down by The Band.  One of my (and Sasha's) favourite songs.  Check it out on video in "The Last Waltz".  Levon Helm owns it.
Dixie Chicken by Little Feat.  I love this song!  There's something very sexy about the rhythm.

Dylan Duo:
The Times They are a-Changin'
Like a Rolling Stone - many have covered this one, but a young Dylan doing it live is unparalleled.

Internet Radio:
Sasha listens to some Al Greene, Sly and the Family Stone, Marvin Gaye, and Sam Cooke.  Awesome vocals!

Drum Medley:
The Contours, The Velvelettes, Albert Collins and the Icebreaksers, Howlin' Wolf, and Randy Newman.  Sasha's drumming starts in Mowtown and ends up in Nawlins.

Misc.
I Still Haven't Found What I'm Looking For - U2
Sasha comments on Metallica, CCR, George Thorogood, and ACDC.
