A random post

According to Wikipedia, "Wayne Cochran is an American soul singer known for his outlandish outfits and white pompadour." Oddly, "Last Kiss" was the singer/songwriter's last recording, made famous most recently by Pearl Jam; but this week, for some unknown reason, Wayne Cochran keeps appearing in my searches on Google and YouTube. That must mean something, right?

So here it is, my Music Sunday choice on Experience Optimism, a clip of Wayne Cochran and the C. C. Riders on the Jackie Gleason show, "Get down with it."




In case you prefer a more recognizable song and artist, here is Pearl Jam performing "Last Kiss."

 

On the off chance that you might want to learn more about Wayne Cochran, you can find him today at the Wayne Cochran Ministries.

 No, I don't know for sure what brought this artist into my world this week, but I'm speculating it has something to do with searching from a different location in a new geographic region. Isn't geolocation amazing? Thank you, Jesus...oh, excuse me, I meant to say thank you, Google for this random post.
