And his hair was perfect

This afternoon I walked past a Mexican restaurant with (not surprisingly) some semi-St. Patrick's Day festivities out on its patio. It wasn't that impressive, but there was a live DJ.

As I approached I heard the piano riff from Warren Zevon's "Werewolves of London":

Now, while I didn't necessarily see the Irish connection, that was quickly supplanted by matters of greater importance and concern: That riff might not actually be the original song (above) but the crappy Kid Rock song "All Summer Long" which samples it.

When seconds later the I heard the late Mr. Zevon's voice singing the lyrics to his song, I breathed a sigh of relief, and chalked it up to the luck of the Irish.

Okay, no, that was a cheesy attempt at a pithy wrap-up to this post. But I was legitimately more happy to not hear Kid Rock than I expected I would be--and I'm usually pretty happy not to hear Kid Rock.

(And it's not like St. Patrick's Day in America has much to do with the patron saint of the Emerald Isle when you do even the slightest bit of research.)

Ha-oooh. Erin go bragh. Ha-oooh.
