Now there’s a juxtaposition

The iTunes installation on the work box, set to shuffle through 3,236 tracks, managed to put these two together:

  • P. J. Proby’s “Niki Hoeky,” from 1967, cowritten by Pat and Lolly Vegas.
  • Redbone’s “Come and Get Your Love,” from 1974, written and sung by Pat and Lolly Vegas.

As the phrase goes: “What are the chances?”

    Assuming the other 3,234 tracks are not by Pat and Lolly Vegas …

    There is exactly one other: an earlier Redbone tune, “The Witch Queen of New Orleans.”

    Which just now showed up in the shuffle, ten days later.
