Downtown (If You Know What I Think I Mean)

Before the Great Disneyfication (But, I'll save THEM for another day.)

"You can always go downtown."


(What? Do I have it in Deutsch, you say? Sure! Petuland Uber Alles!)
Downtown (Deutsch)
(Buy: Petula Clark: Downtown)

(Buy: The San Remo Golden Strings: Hungry For Love)

(Buy: Booker T. And The M.G.'s: Soul Men)

((I don't know why you'd want to) Buy: Anything by: Mrs. Miller)

(Well, that song just about put me off 'Downtown' forever, until Peaches. But, I think she's singing about a different town.)

(Buy: Peaches: Impeach My Bush)

And finally, this from Emma Bunton (aka Baby Spice). Oh, yes, it sucks as bad as you think it might — and you probably won't make it through the whole video (and I strongly suggest you don't!) — but the hand gestures in the first 25 seconds make it worth it. (I think I know what she's talking about. Or, not.)

(Sorry. I intended this post to go in a totally different direction from yesterday's — that is, until the end, when it took on a life of its own — then, it was all 'Downtown' from there.)
