Dave Pell Singers: Mah-Na-Mah-Na
I grew up in southern California. So, I have often been asked by unfortunate souls doomed to live in places like Wisconsin what it’s like – “Is it really sunny on Xmas day?” “Do bikini-clad girls really frolic 365 days a year?” “Does everyone dress like Don Johnson circa Miami Vice?” In way of answer to all of these questions I recommend hearing the version of “Oh Calcutta” on here. Which, aside from being about the best version that exists, is possibly the most perfect way to voyeuristically experience the land of perpetual sunshine and youth that I come from. Of course it’s not all beach-blanket-bingo – I mean, there was the Richard M. Nixon Library and Birthplace a short 20 minute drive south – but, fill those 20 minutes with the Dave Pell Singers and you’d have something equivalent to a blond girl named Barbie, playing with a Barbie Doll, who is playing with it’s own miniature Barbie Doll.
