The Playlist at Frame 19

Sept. 8, 2014   Hours spent building to date:  103

My favorite by far of all the boatbuilding blogs is “Sundowner Sails Again.”  Tate and Dani are talented, self-taught boat restorers and wonderful young people who let you into their lives a bit so you can understand the relationship between their “real” selves, the Sundowner refit and their voyaging plans.  The first Sundowner post I ever read was about Dani’s shoes:

<a href=”“> Sundowner Sails Again | Addicted to shoes </a>

From the moment I read it I knew I was REALLY going to enjoy the Sundowner chronicles.

So after I finished measuring up the most recent frame, with the IPOD and speakers providing one Tardis Hit Parade song after another, I thought, “A playlist that has Ozzie Osborne and Ozzie Nelson in the same set could help explain an old advertising guy’s recent addiction to plywood and epoxy.”  So I have reconstructed the Playlist at Frame 19:

Dwight Yoakum — “Honky Tonk Man”

Rosemary Clooney — “Here’s That Rainy Day”

Ozzie Osborne — “Crazy Train”

Xavier Cugat — “Perfidia”

Frank Sinatra — “I Took a Trip on a Train”

The Mowgli’s — “San Francisco”

Lyle Lovett — “That’s Right You’re Not from Texas”

Benny Goodman — “Rose Room”

Connie Francis — “Among My Souvenirs”

Johnny Cash — “Big River”

Artie Shaw — “The Carioca”

Ozzie Nelson — “The Jersey Bounce”

Pat Boone — “Love Letters in the Sand”

Sydney Anderson — “That Old Feeling”

Perez Prado — “Mambo Number 8”

Perez Prado — “Cherry Sweet and Apple Blossom White” (since the IPOD has the entire Perez Prado oeuvre, he comes on a lot)

Jerry Lee Lewis — “Crazy Arms”

Ella Fitzgerald — “Lush Life”

Bob Crosby’s Bobcats — “South Rampart Street Parade

Interpretations and theories about my musical taste as it relates to boatbuilding are most welcome.

(My son says I let the cat on the keyboard while iTunes was opened and I am so technically challenged that I don’t know how to delete the songs.  That is not true — I just deleted Jerry Jeff Walker’s “Up Against the Wall Redneck Mother” since he once made it the only song my IPOD would play.)
