BABY’S COMING HOME
BY MOJAVE 3
dedicated from me to our cat Neko, who returned home after nearly 3 weeks out on the “mean” streets of Takoma Park.
On a related note, the album this is from - Out Of Tune - is an unheralded masterpiece I intend to write about more fully at a later date.
Did they go to the neon side of town?

Please share with anyone you know in the area. She’s been gone 8 days now and we’re devastated.
Big ball of orange fluff lost in or around Takoma Park, MD. Please be on the lookout!
Hey y’all — if you know anyone in or around Takoma Park, Maryland… could you share this with them? We really miss our beloved Neko.

And now, the theme from HBO’s GAME OF THRONES as sung by a cat named Arya.
And cat! Some sort of evil cat or fancy cat too, if I know my cinematic and commercial breeds of cats.

In honor of the ongoing Sharks vs. Cats wars on various Tumblr blogs, we present the following PLAYLIST THROWDOWN. While I will retain objectivity, I will admit to posting elsewhere that Discovery Channel must atone for the fear instilled by SHARK WEEK by programming KITTEN MONTH. OK, on to the PLAYLIST THROWDOWN!
Year of the Cat – Al Stewart
Stray Cat Blues – the Rolling Stones
Stray Cat Strut – Stray Cats
Lovecats – the Cure
Bye Bye Kittycat – the Mice
Kitty – Presidents of the United States of America
Can Your Pussy Do The Dog? – the Cramps
What’s New, Pussycat – Tom Jones
Bear Cat – Rufus Thomas
Cat’s In The Cradle – Harry Chapin
Cat People (Putting Out Fire) – David Bowie (currently in the Inglourious Basterds movie)
Phenomenal Cat – the Kinks
An Cat Dubh– U2 (“the black cat” in Irish. Yes, there is an Irish language – I was surprised by that too. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Irish_language )

Jaws theme — John Williams
Season of the Shark – Yo La Tengo
Mack The Knife – by Kurt Weill & Bertolt Brechtm, with Bobby Darin’s recoridng being “definitive”
*edit/late addition*: Sharks Patrol These Waters - Morphine
While the Shark playlist does have one of the most recognizable film cues of the 20th century… the Cats have them outnumbered and outclassed.
Cats. The felines have both the Beatles *and* the Stones, plus Muddy Waters, whose song gave the Rolling Stones their name in the first place. That’s some sort of Playlist trifecta.
Extra Bonus Points:
Also to Cats, for having 2 different Neko Case songs, since that’s the singer one of our cats is named for. Even more special: “Neko” means “Cat” in Japanese. See the Maneki Neko with paw raised in victory below!
