Care to mosey a little to Mose’s music?

Some times a little irony, or more than a little, is in order in order to get through the seemingly endless stream of insane inanity swirling around us.  So, for some ironic comic relief here’s a healthy helping of Mose Allison for inclined ears’ tickling.

Yeah, there are some things I just can’t resist sharing –  like “Big Brother.”  Apparently Orwell was a prophet. Huh. Go figure. Now  I’m on the lookout for all those “rats” that got my attention long ago on the small screen.

Clicking on Mose’s mug will take you to his very informative website. It’s worth a visit just to learn of all the songs he’s written over his career of 50 years. Not many people survive and thrive creatively so long in  any profession.  We should all look so alive at 80.  Nice photo portrait too–in my opinion.

For your amusement, bemusement, entertainment–and perhaps a tad of inspiration,  more of Mose Allison’s music and mentality:

And just in case you missed it the first  posting round, “Ever Since the World Ended.”

Again, much thanks to KKFI’s Radio Redux for reminding moi of Mose’s existence. Yes, we all need our memory pages  refreshed–and that’s a good thing.  Now about those “breeze” and “knees”  lyrics . . . .

PS. If your fear of the dark needs replenishing there’s always  1984 to oblige. Don’t click to view if you’re in a happy happy, joy joy place.

Now I’m wondering if this post is an example of tragic ironic comedy.  Might be. Hmm. What do you think?

    Never heard this Mose cat before, but what an amazing career! My fav was the brain song! As for the movie 1984, I thought it was a film full of fine performances…Richard Burton was amazing in it! As for the Orwellian reality…are we there yet?

      Al, I think we are ‘there’–perhaps not full blown, but the toes are in the door and working for more footage fast from my perspective.
      Glad you enjoyed finding Mose! He is quite the music man. Oh yeah.

      Hey–your new image is wonderful!!!

    One of my first years in California, I had an opportunity to watch Mose Allison at a small university…not more that 50 people in the audience…we was absolutely marvelous….so glad you featured him in your post.

      Slpmartin, you amaze me with all the places you’ve ‘been’! Glad to have served you a musical dish with built in appeal for you. I’ve never heard Mose Allison perform LIVE–but I suspect that has to be a real trip. Thank you for ENJOYING the mosey!
