“Just One Of The Guys” – Jenny Lewis
This was a 7” I had a friend pick up for me on Black Friday/RSD 2014, but I only got it yesterday. It was nice to spin.
“Everybody Knows This Is Nowhere” – Neil Young & Crazy Horse
Was having a bit of a difficult beginning to my week after visiting a cemetery to pay a visit to… well, anyway, it got me very reflective. This song and the next popped into my head.
“It Makes No Difference” – My Morning Jacket
Out of context but the sentiment and conclusions loan themselves to mourning, so I just wrapped myself in a cocoon of sad music for a couple days and rode the whole thing out.
“Like A Daydream” – Ride
RSD 2015 find. It was a glorious day and now I’m spinning it… it’s going to be another great day!
“Dumb” – Nirvana
Was reading the interview with Francis Bean last week when this song came up and was popped right into my head.
“Bohemian Like You” – The Dandy Warhols
Another RSD 2015 find, although this song wasn’t on it… just wanted to hear it after playing the earlier album.
“Stratford-On-Guy” – Liz Phair
Another interview I found myself reading, it was interesting to hear her perspective… on so many different things.
“The Denial Twist” – White Stripes
Yes! Get Behind Me Satan was released on vinyl – finally! It will be spinning later today.
“Milk Cow Blues” – The Kinks
The b-side to “You Really Got Me” which was another of yesterdays finds.
“Ride On Josephine” – George Thorogood & the Destroyers
Currently spinning on the turntable, I’ll have a full story on this later in the week.
“State Trooper” – Bruce Springsteen
What can you say about the Boss and Nebraska? Dark and desolate it leaves little room for hope…
“Brass Buttons” – Gram Parsons
Such a beautiful frickin’ tune from a soul that left us way to soon.
“Singer Not The Song” – Alex Chilton
B-side to “Jesus Christ” on this RSD release, it just smacks of sarcasm.
“No Cities To Love” – Sleater-Kinney
The only thing I bought yesterday that had nothing to do with RSD. It sounds a 1000 times better on vinyl.
“Funplex” – The B-52’s
Another fun and sarcastic bit from the band that always makes me smile.
“The Meaning Of Soul” – Oasis
I just had to slip this in for no other reason than I felt like it.
“Superstar” – Sonic Youth
You don’t realize just how creepy this Carpenters classic is until you hear the Sonic Youth version. Spine tingling!
“The Cabbage” – Teenage Fanclub
I so badly want this record on vinyl. One of my favourites!
“When My Baby’s Beside Me” – Kelly Willis
Say what you want, it’s a great song that holds its own even when it gets a little ‘countrified’.
“You and Your Sister” – Chris Bell
Because it is a great song that I just had to put in… no other reason.
