On this day in music history: June 11, 1966 - "Paint It Black" by The Rolling Stones hits #1 on the Billboard Hot 100 for two weeks. Written by Mick Jagger and Keith Richards, and recorded at RCA Victor Studios in Hollywood on March 6th - 9th, 1966, the song is originally intended as a "comedy track" parodying the bands' first manager Eric Easton whose former job was working as a theater organist. The song will take on a completely different tone when drummer Charlie Watts changes the basic rhythm and guitarist Brian Jones adds a sitar, giving it its signature sound. Bassist Bill Wyman will also play the bass pedals of an organ with his fists on the track. Released as a stand alone single in the UK, the song will be included on the US release of Aftermath (released on June 20th).


On this day in music history: June 11, 1977 - "I'm Your Boogie Man" by KC & The Sunshine Band hits # 1 on the Billboard Hot 100 for one week, also peaking at number three on the R&B singles chart on June 4th. Written and produced by Harry Wayne Casey and Richard Finch, it is the third single from the bands' fourth studio album Part 3. Casey and Finch will write the song as a tribute to a Miami radio DJ named Robert W. Walker who was instrumental in helping break the bands' first chart topping single "Get Down Tonight." On the LP, "Boogie" is paired together with "Keep It Comin' Love" (issued as the fourth and final single), with the two songs edited so that they segue into each and play as one long continuous song. "I'm Your Boogie Man" will also be covered by White Zombie in 1996 for the soundtrack to The Crow - City Of Angels. The original version is featured in the film Scary Movie and its sequels, the comedy Superbad, as well as the action adventure film Watchmen. "Boogie" will be the fourth of KC & The Sunshine Band's five #1 pop singles in the US.

Ride On!

Free fridays at Santa Anita racetrack start today and continue for the next few months. I highly recommend a trip out to Arcadia to sit in the bleachers and smoke, drink and bet-- or you can just pretend to bet like I often do. Of course, there are "exclusive" box seats and all that, but to me the bleachers make for a much better bit of people watching and a much more relaxing time. Dollar beers, dollar hot dogs and a stunning view of the San Gabriel Mountains make the trek out east a worthy one.
