E’s song of the day

February 21, 2009

The Too Old crew are very pleased to announce the reaching of yet another milestone yesterday: 200,000 hits in less than 11 months.  We’d like to thank you, our faithfull readers, for sticking it out with us through the good and bad.  We know we can be forgetfull, opinionated and, yes, even a bit self-indulgent at times but we have always attempted to provide you a fresh look at current events, pop culture and whatever else may be rolling through our collective heads at any given time.  Not that we require any encouragement, but your support helps reinforce our desire to continue writing on anything and everything.  So for Steve, Ronin and myself (yo Steve, we gotta get hater-ass Jason removed from the “about us” section): thank you again for your tireless support, and here’s to reaching another 200,000 hits together!

Now that we have that out of the way, I couldn’t pass up on one of my top ten songs of all-time for this milestone day.  Keeping in the same loving theme of the week there were still a couple of songs in my top ten (in fact, the Tricky jam from a few days ago is in that list of ten)  that competed for today’s spot.  I almost selected Digital Underground’s “Freaks of the Industry” but Steve has already blogged on that song (during the blog’s first week!  Read that post here).  Instead, I went with a more tender tune to soften you up a bit on this brisk Saturday in the Bay.  If I get married (I said if, not when. Calm down out there, ladies…) I would certainly want to dance to this song at the wedding reception.  I’ve used this artist twice previously, but who cares?  When true greatness exists it should be celebrated often.  Today’s jam: Otis Redding – These Arms of Mine.  Mmmmmm…..
