Playlist for 5/20/09 - Beatniks, blood and Joey Ramone

Mary last week. Bloody/blood this week. One song in common both weeks. Any guesses what theme I might begin with next week? I was probably a little heavy on the twang this week, but I don’t think that’s a bad thing. What would have been Joey Ramone's 58th birthday was recognized with a set of Joey-themed songs. No 7-inch Six-Pack – mainly because I had a bunch of non-45 stuff I wanted to play. It returns next week and by gosh and darn, shall star B.J. Thomas and the Triumphs.
