SUYF! – Playlist 4/11/21

Songs inspired by the jingle jangle morning before gazing into the jangling discordance. Mr. Bojangles, please dance. Mr. Bojangles! Mr. Bojangles! Get your Rickenbacker out!

We are what we always were in Salem, but now the little crazy children are jangling the keys of the kingdom, and common vengeance writes the law!

I felt a little guilty about jangling the poor bugger’s brains with that evil fantasy. But what the hell? Anybody who wanders around the world saying, “Hell yes, I’m from Texas,” deserves whatever happens to him.

Hunter S. Thompson, The Great Shark Hunt: Strange Tales from a Strange Time
