Friday Music

It's Friday. I need music.

I'll start the day with some B-boys in the DM's honor -- happy birthday! -- then I'll move into those lovable Canadian twins, Tegan and Sarah.

What next?

hmmmm...I get first crack this time. Go ahead and listen to The Breeders' Title TK. I really enjoy most of that album.

I'm watching ER right now and can't hunt down any music just yet... but I'll try to get back at you later :)

I second Clash's Springsteen recommendation. However, I suggest "Highway Patrolman" and "Johnny 99" from the Nebraska record.

It's been a fine yet small selection of music today, and I got through much of it, but I won't be able to comment more specifically until later. There's a birthday to celebrate up in this joint.

Melissavina said...

Happy Birthday D.M.!
I hope you're doing and drinking good stuff tonight!

Today I suggest songs inspired by Wes Anderson:

Rolling Stones: I Am Waiting
The Proclaimers: Over and Done With
The Faces: Ooh La La
Nico: These Days

I love this crap... it's what I'm usually listening to.

How about since I am always missing this portion of Friday Bobby Conn Fridays, nothing but Bobbys library of music and maybe some covers of his best hits, maybe a comeback with current artists playing with him...Bobby Conn Fridays...Just thinkin'

Valyna said...

p.s. Sorry about the quality of the Sister Hazel vid. It was difficult to find anything decent on that song :/

~d said...

My music, yo, is where my heads at!

SO! Today I got:
Gap Band!


CRAP! Youtube not cooperating.
I am TRYING to tell you: Ministry's Stigmata. Flippin youtube effing up my groove! HAHAHA

~d said...

The Jesus and Mary Chain! What a super choice, Val!!

The Dalai Mama said...

I just wanted to say thanks for all the birthday wishes! You guys rock. I had a nice, low-key birthday. Drank some Newcastle Browns.

SleekPelt said...

zee: As always, Title TK was nice. I also spun The Pixies' Surf Rosa a bit later.

clash: Great selection. I loved listening to "Let it Be," and I can't wait to see that movie. As for the Cult -- what a unique band. It's like they straddled the very wide line between college rock and cock rock. Not sure how they pulled that off, but they did. As for interpol -- you know, I've tried, but they just don't do much for me.

rob: I have "Johnny 99" on a live CD of Bruce's and enjoyed this spin.

hattica: I hit them all up but the Animals song, which I don't seem to have and can't find in your iTunes. I don't like Moby much, I'm afraid, but I really liked this song of his. Maybe I need to give him another chance. Mad Season is new to me and I was impressed by that song.

anon: If that's not rock 'n' roll, I don't know what is. I bet those guys partied backstage.

melissavina: I could only find a Lindsey Buckingham cover of "I Am Waiting," and I'm glad I did, because it rocks. I had no luck with the Proclaimers song, but I queued up Nico and Rod with no problems and enjoyed both. I too love Wes Anderson. Rushmore is my favorite of his movies, at least of the ones I've seen. I liked that you had a theme to your choices. Thanks for the suggestions!

josh: Bobby Conn. You know how to make a guy's day better, pal.

valyna: Wow, what a list! Thanks for all the effort, I really appreciate it. I'll start with the stuff I'm familiar with: Morphine -- love these guys and this song, bummer about the dying-on-stage thing; The Donnas -- I dig these girls; Otis -- so much soul, I just started getting into him recently; Jesus and Mary Chain -- the DM and I love 'em!; Kings of Leon -- not my favorite band, but I keep trying; Cinderella -- I didn't realize how much I missed these guys. I guess you don't know what you got till it's gone; Muse -- always thought they were Radiohead-esque, but it doesn't make me like them less. Killer band; MMJ -- the soundtrack to our son's birth. This band is near the top of my list of bands I want to see live. I have their newish live CD and it's insanely good. Great video and great sound quality on this one; Portishead -- one of the songs I'm most familiar with by them, the DM digs this group; The Mars Volta -- they shocked me on Henry Rollins' show. I haven't really liked a lot of the stuff I've heard, but I think this is the best of it, I really like this one; John West -- somebody suggested this dude to me on a very early Friday Music post, I believe. He's not bad.

Now the stuff I wasn't familiar with: Toby Lightman -- I expected a dude. The woman has pipes. Sister Hazel -- like you said, bad recording, so it's kinda hard to get a good feel for them. I'll look for more; Youthgroup -- nice song, reminds me a little of folk singer Donovan but with an electric guitar; Susan Tedeschi -- wow, this woman really has pipes. Move over Bonnie Raitt; Bikini Kill -- KILLER video, lots of attitude, at a song called "Rebel Girl" should have. I really appreciate how much time you put into this, thanks again!

~d: The Gap Band! is classic and funny, but that Ministry song? Wow! This is one of those rainy-day bands I knew I'd get into one day. They just skyrocketed to the top of that list.

dm: Those Newcastles were good, but the ghost stories were even better.
