#TrackoftheDay: “Voodoo Man”

Lola LolaPortugal (2018) Well, since yesterday’s track was Curtis Knight and “Voodoo Woman,” it just made sense to go with this one for today. It’s “Voodoo Man” by a band called Lola Lola out of Portugal. And the B-side to this single is a cover of “Voodoo Woman.” Very nice. And oh, man. You guys had me at horns. You can snag the single on Amazon. And you can find them on Facebook.

The University of Texas school song, "The Eyes of Texas," is disparaged as originating in minstrel shows.

I'm reading a WaPo column by Cindy Boren: "Texas players told to stand for school song, despite its origin in blackface minstrel shows."  The lyrics to “The Eyes of Texas” were inspired in part by Confederate Gen.

Lee, who after the Civil War was a teacher at what would become Washington and Lee University, where he made an impression on future UT president William Prather by repeatedly telling students that “the eyes of the South are upon you.” .  ... Edmund T. Gordon, a professor of...
