Playlist for vampires

From my new blog


I saw Only Lovers Left Alive last week. Vampires have such a good taste in music! I made a playlist for them… 

Los vampiros escuchan mejor música que el 70% de ustedes. Les hice un playlist. 

* Pop-Eye Stroll - The Mar-Keys 

* I’m going home - Prince Conley

* No Tears - The Tonettes

* Kansas City March - Wild Jimmy Spruill 

* Heart Trouble - Billy Lewis 

* Wonderin’ and Worryin’ - Slim Harpo

* I don’t know - Ruth Brown

* Sonido Amazonico - Los Mirlos

* Moanin - Cherry Wainer & Don Storer
