Bottom of the Pops

Just finished a mix devoted to songs that placed on Billboard‘s “Bubbling Under The Hot 100” chart between 1966 and 1981. Quite a fun disc to assemble, with samplings from New Wave, Soul, Country, ’60s Pop and Disco. On a similar note — Pitchfork’s Worst Record Covers (via MetaFilter). Good for a few laughs; contains this priceless observation: “One day, the dawn of Photoshop will be seen as the absolute nadir of human artistic endeavor.”

4 Thoughts on “Bottom of the Pops

    I simply MUST find a copy of “Kenny: By Request” from the Pitchfork site!
    Is that guy a serial killer, a substitute bus driver for some Lutheran church in North Dakota, or BOTH?

  2. I LOOOOOVE Skeeter Davis — is that your fault? I can’t remember. I love the early Davis Sisters stuff, too (“I Forgot More Than You’ll Ever Know About Him”). This guy at the car wash who shines shoes is playing some really excellent old music circa 1950s… and running loud commentary the whole time. He’s got a nice singing voice, luckily. It’s kind of surreal.

    Hey, I bought an iPod last weekend, so I’m all modern now. More opportunities to enjoy your mixes. In fact, they’re some of the first things I loaded. Of course, I’m not clever enough yet to remember to take it with me anywhere. Duh. Ill-equipped for the new millennium. Bah.

    Seacrest out.

  3. Skeeter Davis was the best! I’ve been downloading some stuff of hers recently – parts of the Tunes for Two album she did with Bobby Bare and some odd cover versions (“Angel of the Morning”, “One Tin Soldier”) from later on. The Davis Sisters, however, seem too Country to me.

    If I was in any way responsible for your Skeeter love, thanks.
