Songs of The Day
The Dirty Boogie-Brian Setzer Orchestra (1998) the title track from an excellent cd of jump jive from the guitar slinger that fronted the Stray Cats. Put a hot band and horn section behind him and it's all good.
Dirty Laundry-Don Henley (1982) from his first solo Lp "I Cant Stand Still", comes this trashing of the tabloid media. He wasnt happy with the coverage of the deaths of John Belushi and Natalie Wood and vented with this tune. It also features a Joe Walsh guitar solo and also work from Steve Lukather and Jeff Porcaro from Toto.
