Gavin Music Mix

Happy Memorial Day! With San Francisco’s weather and political climate slowly rolling into a dead heat, photo finish of mild double-digit temperatures (high 70’s) and a wild single candidate named Gavin (low 40’s with approval ratings in the high 70's), I thought to keep cool (and Never Forget!) with a collection of tunes with song titles, band names and lyrics that chronicle the Gav's more entetaining headlines: City Hall Sex Scandal, Gav’s Girls, Mayor McChicken, Photo-Ops, Dirty Tricks, Diapergate, Boozing and generally avoiding playground bully, Dan Noyes, at all cost.

WARNING: Gavin iMix contains EXPLICIT lyrics; yet, how else could we musically express our disdain? The starting whistle opens with ‘Young Folks’ by ‘Peter [Ragone] aka Bjorn and John [Nelson]’ and 'The Kooks' make an appearance as ‘Sofa Song’ plays on the Myspace page. Gav’s Girls Ruby, Paris Hilton and Brittany Mountz inspire 'Ruby' and ‘One Night in Paris’ and ‘Jailbait respectively. Finally, ‘Betray’ brings us to our rockin’ conclusion. Stay tuned for the eminent mix!!!
