And the 90th…

“Rubber Biscuit” by the Blues Brothers

Sometime, at some unrecollected moment when I was very young, my mom and maybe my sister and I, sat around our old kitchen in Newville, listening to this song on a first-gen “boombox”, and I know that at the very least, I laughed my ass off for about a dozen consecutive plays of the song.  I remember it was a cassette tape that my mother had of the band playing live; in fact, it was undoubtedly the version in the YouTube video below.  Although it was something we only listened to on a few occasions, I still often recall it fondly.  Usually, odd, unfinished chunks of language remind me of the verses.  And biscuits always make me think of it.  I will say, it is much funnier without the video attached; although they are clearly a talented band, my child’s-mind’s-eye made it much more entertaining.
