music for monday
posted by soe 12:54 am

That sickness I was trying to outrun on Friday caught up with me early Saturday morning and I’ve spent most of the weekend listlessly curled up on the couch, canceling plans left and right. I’m still not feeling 100%, so I’m going to leave you with some music for Monday and head to bed:

David Wilcox’s “Cold”:

Betty Boop’s “I Got A Cold In My Nose”

Skip James’ “Sickbed Blues”

Lisa Loeb’s “A Co Di by Doze (A Cold in My Nose)”

Harry Nilsson’s “Put the Lime in the Coconut”

Johnny Rivers’ “Rockin’ Pneumonia and the Boogie Woogie Flu”

If you’ve got a favorite sickbed song, leave it in the comments.

Oh no! :/ Get well soon!

How is it that everyone else in the universe knows the lime in the coconut song, but I had never heard of it until just a few months ago?

@Kat: Thank you! I took today off and that definitely helped!

@Karen: I don’t know. Were you like the only kid in the ’70s who didn’t watch The Muppet Show?
