Were you getting all kinds of nuts last night? Dragging a little today? Spend the day on the couch? That's why seasoned pros call it amateur's night. Pacing is everything. Just don't forget that the next time. Even if you swear there won't be, believe me there will. So, if you are hurting, if I was you I'd duck out of that first song below before it hits the :42 second mark. (If you have a hungover roommate and are one for cheap kicks, play that part loud.) The song is "Hung Over" by the Martinis, featuring Packy Axton, who knew a thing or two about partying. He was the son of Stax Record's co-founder Estelle Axton, and his wooping it up was a determining factor in his not so graceful exit from the Stax stable, and that was a big deal because besides being the son of one of the owners, he was a member of the Mar-Keys, who gave the label one of their first big hits, "Last Night".
The others down there are other post-Stax bands that Axton was in. He died at 32 in 1974, reportedly from cirrhosis of the liver. Consider that a lesson from a dead man.
