This has got to be SO frustrating for Rita Coolidge. Not even MARY WORTH will give her credit for her song, attributing it to Anita Koolidge instead.

Maybe I'll add "Layla" to the playlist. Here's why. I went on a deep dive, wondering if Anita Koolidge could be a play on Rita Coolidge who helped write an unreleased song with Jim Gordon called "Time." You can listen to what sounds like a demo version of it on YouTube here. At the beginning, you can hear the familiar refrain from "Layla" by Derek and the Dominioes. When Layla was released, she was shocked that she didn't get a writing credit. You can read an excert from her memoir about it here, but be warned, there is probably some click-bait on the site. Better yet, I'll just add something by Rita Coolidge.

I still haven't scraped my musician wife off of the ceiling after yesterday's "Like riding a bicycle" remark. I don't think I'll show her today's strip.

It's only your second date, and your first date was the worst ever!
What a wonderful evening the other customers must be having.

Don't worry. Karen Moy does not get to make requests for the Charterstone Jukebox. I might add Huey Lewis and the News' "Heart and Soul" to the playlist, but NOT Hoagy Carmichael.

Wait... So at Sau's Piano Bar, the customers play? It's an open keyboard... at a bar? So generally, this place is like an eighth grade recital all the time, except that the musicians are drunk.

"What about you, Ed? Are you more considerate and reliable than Wilbur Weston?"

Did you know that in Cassablanca, Humphry Bogart never says, "Play it again, Sam?" He actually says, "Play it again, Sau."

"Like when I decided to date Wilbur, and when I decided to go on and get scammed, and when I took you to that karaoke place. It works great."

Eggplant is one of those foods that everybody seems to like, but I just can't stand it. Not even in otherwise-delicious pasta dishes, or funny sounding dips like baba ganoush. Okay, I realize they probably won't serve baba ganoush at an Italian restaurant, and I just wanted to say baba ganoush. But seriously, I hate egg plant.
