music friday: david johansen

Yesterday, I posted a Throwback Thursday item about a David Johansen concert I attended 35 years ago, and that got me think about one of my favorites. So here are ten David Johansen songs.

The New York Dolls:

Personality Crisis”: “Your mirror’s gettin’ jammed up with all your friends”

Looking for a Kiss”: “When I say I'm in love, you best believe I'm in love, L-U-V!”

Trash”: “How do you call your loverboy?”

Human Being”: “If I want too many things, don't you know that I'm a human being?”

David Johansen:

Funky But Chic”: “Get out of bed baby, let's get on down to the boutique!”

Girls”: “Girls! I like them seizing the power!”

Frenchette”: “You call that love in French, but it's just Frenchette”

Bohemian Love Pad”: “Broken records all over the floor, who could ask for anything more?”

Buster Poindexter:

Hot Hot Hot”: “Ole ole - ole ole / Ole ole - ole ole”

David Johansen and the Harry Smiths:

Somebody Buy Me a Drink”: “Let me tell you a story that's sad but true”
