We bought a new CD by John Lee Hooker. From the first note, you think, yesssssss, and you want to walk around town listening to this music all the time. One of the songs on the album is Shake it Baby, in which he asks her to shake it for him one time. I wondered aloud what it means to shake it one time. Do you move your butt to one side, and that’s it? Isaac very seriously informed me that you shake your butt to once side, and back again. And that, friends, is how you shake it one time. I’ve started noticing a multitude of shake songs–it’s a very broad subject. You can shake it on the dance floor, or in the bedroom, you can shake from excitement, fear or sickness, you can shake like a polaroid picture, like milk, like a ship going out to sea, like a willow tree, like jello on a plate. So this week’s interactive playlist is shaking songs, with special points awarded for imaginative “shake like” similes. As ever, the playlist is interactive, so add what you’d like, or leave a note in the comments and I’ll try to remember to add them.
