MUSIC: Josh White, "One Meatball"

Short shameful confession: I think "One Meatball" is an *incredibly* sexy piece of music.

You can't go back in time, but if I could, I'd be sorely tempted to go back to 1945 just so I could catch Josh White in a little blues club somewhere. Or even catch a late-night showing of THE CRIMSON CANARY, the b-picture the linked (alas, non-embeddable) performance is from. I should probably never, ever, talk a dancer into performing to it, because if done right it could possibly cause me to spontaneously combust. LIKE JOSH WHITE'S HEAD. (Actually, he's got a lit cigarette behind his right ear. Which is just magnificently cool.)
