Friday 13th Music

Celebrating the date, let's say - may your luck hold...

1. Johnny Cash - Thirteen
2. Big Star - Thirteen
3. 13th Floor Elevators - You're Gonna Miss Me
4. John Lennon - Luck of the Irish
5. Madonna - Lucky Star
6. Modest Mouse - Shit Luck
7. Richard & Linda Thompson - Hard Luck Stories
8. Sunburst - Lucky You
9. Strokes - Trying your Luck
10. James Blood Ullmer - I Ain't Superstitious

Well? Can't find video of James Blood Ulmer doing it - lots of video of Jeff Beck and other lesser musicians at it, but hard to sort through them for anything close to the original... So - here's the audio of Willie Dixon, from 1970, I think...

I'm going to update this sucker again - finally found the original Howlin' Wolf recording. That's worth having. What a pain, rooting around through 5000 cover versions - Megadeth? who the fuck wants to hear Megadeth doing Howlin' Wolf? Who wants to hear Megadeth do anything, I suppose, but really... clutter clutter clutter!

And 13th Floor Elevators miming...

And Big Star is always welcome...
