Go over the top or stay home.  It’s National Gaudy Day!  Wear your brightest, cheapest, and most importantly biggest, hat, hair, jewelry, and furs.  If you’re not flaunting it, you’re not celebrating.  Today’s holiday is brought to us by the hit 70’s show Three’s Company.  Larry Dallas (played by Richard Kline) mentioned National Gaudy Day in an episode and unlike the show, it stuck. So, channel your inner Zsa Zsa and…




apple-151070_640If your favorite artist hasn’t had a hit since tape decks were on sale at Radio Shack or the iPod shuffle was released, today is the holiday for you.  It’s National One-Hit-Wonder Day!  Country, Hip-Hop, Pop, and Rock n’ Roll have all had Prisoners of Music (P.O.M.), artists whose careers began and ended with their first single to crack the top 100.  One Hit Wonders aren’t always terrible uncannily catchy songs.  Sometimes they’re amazing, but the artist, for one reason or another, didn’t have career longevity. Accident, death, poor management, bad timing, or any other life-changing event can be the cause of the fall, but we’re not here to speculate.  We’re here to recognize music that got us moving for a moment.

Celebrate by listening to the greatest one-hits of your generation. You may even stumble on something you never knew existed like Rodney Dangerfield’s, Rapping Rodney. Who knew he ever cut a record rapping? Dance to a one-hit from a genre of music outside your usual selection. You may just find out what happened at the Harper Valley P.T.A. meeting. Whoomp! There It Is!


Flushed from the Bathroom of Your Heart

One of the best things about celebrating the unusual holidays throughout the year is you never know what you’re gonna get.  This is an exciting journey of discovery!  Today is Quirky Country Music Song Titles Day!

Country songs are known for telling the most interesting stories about love and loss, but it wasn’t until today, I learned about the quirkiest song titles I’ve ever heard.

Some of the ones that made me giggle are – My Give a Damn is Busted, Dropkick Me Jesus,  You’re the Reason our Kids are Ugly, and She Only Bitches When She Breathes.  

I may have to save a country station to my car playlist after today!

Listen up and holiday on my friends!

Send me a quirky country song.
