The Song Stuck In My Head: “BAD INFLUENCE” by The ROBERT CRAY BAND (1983)

You Used Me

To Get Ya Anything You Wanted

Oh, But I’m A Changed Man

It’s Your Other Friend That Gets Ya What You Want Now

BAD INFLUENCEIs The Title Track Off Of The 1983 Album From The ROBERT CRAY BAND !!!

If I Go Through Those Same Things Again

I’ll Be Worse Off Than I Started

Oh, You’re Such A BAD INFLUENCE

Baby, You’ve Got Ways To Make Me Do What You Want

Oh, And You’re Such A BAD INFLUENCE

Girl I’ve Got To Stay Away. …

… … … … … … …

… … …

I Awoke This Morning Feeling Two Very Distinct Ways.

FIRST

…I Felt Like I Was Going To Die, My Mouth Was Hurting So Bad.

Sadly, I’ve Had A Stuffy Nose, So I’m Pretty Damned Sure I Breathed Through My Mouth, Almost Exclusively, All Night Long.

That’s A No Good, Kiddies.

That’s A No Good, Indeed.

SECOND

…I Was In The Mood To Listen To Some Quality Blues Music.

So…

To Combat The First Portion

…I Popped A Pain-Pill AND THEN Gave The Sore Area Of My Mouth A Slathering Of A Liquid Numbing-Agent (LIDOCAINE).

To Combat The Second Portion

…I Popped On Some Totally Awesome Jammage By…

The ROBERT CRAY BAND

!!!Β  πŸ˜€Β  !!!

So So So…

…At This Moment…

…At This Very Very Moment…

…Right Now…

…My Mouth Does NOT Hurt…

…And I’m Currently Addicted To Listening To This Song…

BAD INFLUENCE

by The ROBERT CRAY BAND

πŸ˜€

Not Bad, Eh?!

I Didn’t Think So, Either.

πŸ˜‰

The Song…

BAD INFLUENCE

…Is Totally A Personal Fave-Fave…

…But It Has Sadly Fallen Into The “Forgotten Classics” Category.

😦

Some Folks DO Remember The Album…

…But Not So Many People Remember The Song.

Not One Damned Bit.

And, To Me, That’s Sad.

The Whole Album Is TOTALLY EXCEPTIONAL

…And This Song Is Just One Of Its Highlights.

I Can VERY EASILY Recommend It To You, My Peeps.

BOTH The Song AND The Album.

If You’re Into More Of A Rockin’ Blues…

BAD INFLUENCE

…May Be An Undiscovered Country To You.

(yes, I borrowed the bit about the "Undiscovered Country" from Star Trek)

It’s Got’em All, My Peeps.

The Album Boasts Other Such Classics From…

The ROBERT CRAY BAND

…Like…

PHONE BOOTH

&

THE GRINDER

&

SO MANY WOMEN, SO LITTLE TIME

…And Especially…

WAITING FOR THE TIDE TO TURN

πŸ˜€Β Β Β Β  πŸ˜€Β Β Β Β  πŸ˜€

Anyway, My Peeps…

…I Think I’m Going To Duck-Outta-Here For A Bit.

Dawn Is Upon Us…

…And I Seriously Wanna Go For A Nice, Long Walk This Morning With My Serious Tunage In Tow!!!

Y’all Take Care…

…Be Good…

…See Me Soon…

…And Talk To Me Sooner!!!

πŸ™‚

L8r L8r, My Tater-Tots!!!

    • It’s Just Going To Take Some Time, Ms. Jaz.
      But Always Remember…
      …”Time Is On My Side, Yes It is!”
      hehehe
      I’m Sure Sure SURE I’ll Be Okie The Dokie Very Very VERY Soon.
      I Can’t Stand Being In Pain, But I’m Finding Different Ways To Cope.
      Right Now, I’m Taking My Mind Off Of My Mouth, And I’m Writing To You While I Watch “THE BOOK OF ELI” πŸ™‚
      It’s Another Personal Fave Fave Starrin’ DENZEL!!!
      So I’m Coping.
      I’m Coping Very Hard.
