meccamuzakmondaysMarch has come in like a polar bear, and will probably go out like a penguin.  At least it’s Monday, so for a brief moment you can come in from the cold and enjoy a hot platter of musical chileh served up by DJ Scratchy for this week’s edition of Mecca Muzak Monday!  The Igloo Nest has pulled another gem from the shopper’s soundtrack, and this song is nearly a decade old!

That lady in the flower dress is Courtney Jaye.  She doesn’t have much of a Wiki page, and most of it is dedicated to chronicling the places she’s lived in her however long she’s been alive life… and we have to guess because it doesn’t even list the fucking birthday of a supposedly popular musician.

LA… Austin.. Nashville…. geez, she puts Hank Snow to shame in the I’ve Been Everywhere game.  One place she isn’t credited with living is Mecca, where her one noteworthy song got the coveted sixth spot on the 2014 Winter CD.  Here is Courtney Jaye’s 2005 single “Can’t Behave”:

Jaye is just the latest of many artists I’ve featured on MMM whose Indie credentials keep them from being a household name, but who have nevertheless found a portal to popularity through the Mecca CD.  As you may have guessed from the graphic on that YouTube video, the song also appeared in the 2006 movie “Aquamarine”…

    Is it weird that I think that snake is beautiful, and I don’t even like snakes?

  3. Got anything that melts snow? ‘Cause we got a lot of melting to do around these here parts and maybe some hot music would help … ? There must be a cure.

  4. You need a “this post will make you snort milk out of your nose and pee your pants laughing” warning for this one.

    Ms Jayne is 32. By the look of her pictures she takes herself way too seriously. But the big news here is the “kitten cam” on the Animal Planet web site. Too cute! Whoops, distracted again… We loved Aquamarine and used to sing along to the sound track with the kids.
