Saturday Night Fever

Amy and I used to go to Cajun and Zydeco dances every few months when we lived near Boston, but it's harder out here in western Mass. I especially miss it during the winter, when a good Cajun dance would really get you all warmed up. Here's one of my favorite Mary Chapin Carpenter songs-

Oh I love Cajun and Zydeco. So much fun! We have been considering using that as a theme to a fundraiser I work on every year. Someone knew of a Zydeco band...I think it would be a hit.

I have always loved Mary Chapin Carpenter. I think she was just a little too intelligent for the country music scene. Great songwriter.

When I first moved to DC, we used to spend time at an Irish bar called Gallagher's. Mary Chapin Carpenter was a frequent performer during open mike nights. It's weird to see someone you saw starting out like that now so famous.

I love me some Zydeco!

Malicious: Sounds like a great idea for a fundraiser- it puts everyone in a good mood!

Malach: I gots me some jambalaya!

Mike: She's wonderful. We saw her in concert here a few months ago.

Reverend: I cannot live without hot pepper sauce.

HTGT: Wow, I'd loved to have seen her live back then!

Why is this woman not wearing a burka?

Mohammed: Welcome to MMB! Stick around- you'll see many women without burkahs...

Definitely lively music. I could never dance to it....mostly because I look a fool trying to dance. Some say I don't even need to dance to look like a fool....but they is wrong I tell ya!! :-)

Perhaps this explains where Curmy's love of zydeco came from. It always puzzled me since he was from Massachusetts.

I've never really listened to Cajun music too much, but I like it.

Dancing simulates sex, hence is a sin, go to confession, yes, yes.
