Boomer Anthems: American Band

Once upon a time, this country knew how to party. Now we’ve got half of the nation interested in havin’-no-fun, chugging Tide pods, sacrificing their children to leftoid illusions, and riding everybody’s ass.

Four young chiquitas in Omaha
Was waitin’ for the band to return from the show
Feelin’ good, feelin’ right, it’s Saturday night
The hotel detective — he was out-a-sight

Now, these fine ladies, they had a plan
They was out to meet the boys in the band
They said, “Come on, dudes, let’s get it on,”
And we proceeded to tear that hotel down

We’re an American band
We’re an American band
We’re coming to your town, we’ll help you party it down
We’re an American band

    I note that many of those exuberant yoots are now unexuberantly dead.

    What a great video! A couple of minutes viewing people I had not seen in years and its got my mind racing. No Trump, no Hilarity, no community orgasmers, just silliness. Damn, was I ever so innocent to make stuff like that seem normal?

    I think that was JoAnne Worley with Elizabeth Montgomery.

    That was fun!

    Ahh, the archetypal question that separates all men into two groups, except for a few sneaky bastards:

    Ginger, or
    Marianne, or
    embrace the power of and.

    Marianne, 8 days a week.

  • Richard February 27, 2018, 6:37 AM

    Slam dunk! Marianne. No question, no how.

  • Casey Klahn February 27, 2018, 7:48 AM

    You sexist bastards. Ginger’s got the moves.

  • Leslie February 27, 2018, 8:01 AM

    Ah, Fred Gwynne. Loved him.

    Marianne, hiked up on all fours, undulating salaciously.

  • Mary Ann February 27, 2018, 6:03 PM

    If only Mary Ann knew how to spell her name correctly. Just sayin’.
