Reversing the Numbness

Friday Music

It's Friday. I need music.

And, please, nothing with an Eastern European flair to it. Russia just broke up with me, and it's just too soon.

How about the soundtrack from "Rocky IV?" Oops, my bad- you said music with NO Eastern European flair.
Sorry to hear about your trip, Bro. Sounds like there are better ones on the horizon, tho.

Josh said...

No Russia? How about Pete Townsands Solo effort, he did a great Howlin Wolf cover of "I put a Spell on You"
BB Kings The Thrill is Gone" all good breakup music. Sorry about your trip whatever happened.

geto: No worries, it'll work out.

all: I'm caught up on all the metal from last week that I can find. I just spun "Run to the Hills" and "Dirty Deeds." I can't find System of a Down or Judas Priest, and I'll have to listen to a different Metallica song, because I don't have "One."

I'm all ears if anyone has suggestions on this quiet Friday.

Lacuna Coil: Swamped

Tool: Jimmy

Merle Haggard and Willie Nelson: Poncho and Lefty

Megadeth: A toute Le Monde (set me free)

The latest from Toto - "Falling In Between" - kicks butt!! Great pop/rock stuff from a singer/songwriter named David Ryan Harris.
And for some southern-funk-rock-groovin' checkout SwampdaWamp!!!
Then it'll be time to twist a grip!

I havent posted the past couple weeks....my bad.

Two songs to offer

1) Ray Charles "Come Rain Come Shine"......I like his version the best but I think it has been done by everyone. Much like Doorknob...that was a braxton county reference.


2) Everytime I Die "Easy Tiger"....I missed last weeks metal offerings so this one is mine.

I just found System of a Down's "Chop Suey," a request from ANON las week, and I'm kicking it now. I didn't realize this was one of their hits. Cool band -- my kids like them.

SleekPelt said...

josh: I'm not having any luck with the Townshend stuff, but I just kicked some Howlin' Wolf and BB King in your honor. Now I'm really feeling down!

SleekPelt said...

hattica:

laguna coil -- Just not feelin' it, pal.

tool -- Love it, of course.

merle and willie: Can't go wrong with these two.

megadeth: Not a bad song, but I thought this band was heavy!

SleekPelt said...

hufstuf: Welcome! Glad you stopped by with such fine suggestion. I didn't even know Toto was still recording, but I always liked them. I checked out their MySpace page and heard two songs from the new one. Nice to hear they still sound like Toto. Of course I listened to "Africa" while I was there, because how couldn't I? I really like David Ryan Harris's stuff. I've never heard of him. He's got a bit of a John Mayer thing going on, but man is it nice. everyone: hufstuf is the guitar player of SwampdaWamp, a band that clearly knows how to make kick-ass, tight rock 'n' roll. Be sure to check them out.

Have fun riding, huf.

try the new white stripes album or maybe the latest richard thompson. cracking stuff.

SleekPelt said...

hufstuf: Holy shit -- David Ryan Harris does a cover of Jeff Buckley's "So Real" -- and it's a great cover, too. What a nice surprise. I really dig this guy.

SleekPelt said...

cj: I listened to The White Stripes' "Icky Thump," which is as good as I'd expect it to be. I need to get this whole album. I also spun Richard Thompson's "Harlan's Bounce," a nice instrumental number of his. I also kicked "Vincent Black Lightning " for good measure.

Also, mr. jesus, your recommendation to play Richard Thomson reminding me of Richard Buckner, a musician I used to listen to a lot but haven't heard in years. Thanks for the unintentional reminder.

Excellent offerings to my weekly music thread.

Tell me you've heard William Shatner's album "Has Been" his musical genius is shocking. Truly.

Are you still numb? Then you must listen to this vampire music from the early 1970's:

JeffK: The kids would love to join you to listen to some Mull. You would be surprised at how well they can sing right along with it. I'll put them on the next flight!

SleekPelt said...

melissavina: I regret to admit that I have not, but as it's a reference from you, I will seek it out as soon as humanly possible. I can only imagine it's on par with Leonard Nemoy's "Ballad of Bilbo Baggins," which is a MUST WATCH for all.

SleekPelt said...

jeffk: I can't possibly describe how nice it is to see you here. By god, it's a Mull day in Morgantown, too, starting ... now.

Bob Dylan - Silvio

SleekPelt said...

anon: You're such a mystery, anon, with your fine taste in music and your iron mask. What are you hiding from? I'm not longer numb thanks to those videos, and the vampire stuff? Sounds like porn music to me. Those movies look like porn movies, too. As for Dylan, I have tons, but I don't have "Sylvio."

Melissavina said...

Okay, I want a review of William Shatner's album. If you like it or not, I want a public statement. In my opinion we should be spreading the good news of that album and get it to go platinum. I'd bet we'd get personal phone calls from The Shat himself to thank us.
