and now for the songs . . . July 31, 2021

13) Pink Floyd, “Paintbox”

This was the glorious B-side of the November ’67 “Apples and Oranges” single, written not by Syd Barrett but by Richard Wright. “Last night I had too much to drink, sitting in a club with so many fools.” Been there, done that.

14) The Carrie Nations (Lynn Carey), “In the Long Run”

Surprisingly great song from Roger Ebert and Russ Meyer’s camp classic Beyond the Valley of the Dolls, “performed” on film by the Carrie Nations, actually sung by Lynn Carey.

“In the long run, you’ll need someone to trust and count on, somewhere along the way. In the long run, will there be someone that you can lean on, come a rainy day?” Words to live by.

15) Chris Britton, “Fly with Me”

From the self-proclaimed ’70 “ego trip” solo album by the Troggs’s guitarist.

“Fly to the moon above, fly on the wings of love, it’s free, dance through the mountain streams, see just how wild your dreams can be.”
