She's Gone Nuts

Since it's October 31st, I guess the obvious thing to do would be to post a "Halloween" record. I actually have a Halloween record that I could post, believe it or not, but since that would be sort of typical and boring, I think I'll save it for Thanksgiving or something.

Instead, I'll go with the other safe bet, which is a M.O.T.O. record. I originally bought this record (from someone who obviously didn't keep it in a plastic bag the whole time) because for years the early version of "El Stop" was one of my favorite songs on the "Bandit 69" tape, or whichever M.O.T.O. tape it was on back in the 90's, but once I played the b-side I found out that I like "She's Gone Nuts" even better. No matter what, though, M.O.T.O. songs will always be the catchiest songs you've ever heard in your life.

M.O.T.O. -

"She's Gone Nuts"

"She's Gone Nuts".

Indeed. I don't know about the U.S., but here it's customary to hand out peanuts to Halloween 'trick or treaters'.

Except. This year - for afew years in the running - I was in a fucking bad mood. There was a knock on my door at 6:30 PM. I thought it was my son's mother, who I was expecting. I opened the door to three ghosts and Freddy Kruger.

"Beat it", I said. "I'm not doing Halloween this year."

And slammed the door.

What a cantankerous old fuck I have evolved into.

Do that to trick-or-treaters around here, unfortunately, and you'll wake up to a roll of toilet paper being spread all around your house.

I didn't know about the Halloween peanuts thing, by the way. So I guess in that sense it is seasonally appropriate.

The mp3 file on this post is now a listen-only (non-downloadable) files. It's now being hosted on my Vox page (accessible through any of the listen-only links), along with the b-side ("El Stop") which wasn't included in the original post.

For those of you who missed the boat, I will do my best to respond to any e-mailed requests for the original file.
