GEORGE THOROGOOD "Bad To The Bone"
Don't Lose My Number: phil Collins
Long Cool Woman in a Black Dress - The Hollies
As a Petty fan I knew they existed but didn't know or have any of their music until my wife gave me a Tom Petty box set for Christmas (Playback) in the mid-90's. It was interesting reading about the group and learning that Petty started the group with Tom Leadon, brother to Bernie of Eagles and Flying Burrito Brothers fame.
I love this song but never had a clue what it was about until I heard the great cover version by Raul Malo.
It gives a whole new meaning to the song and 45's.
I have a long playlist of music but I always pick one particular song first each morning to get my adrenaline going.
This was today's song.
Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers - Refugee
I have that same box set. I want to say disc 1 & 4 are my favs but I'm not sure anymore. I'll have to dust it off & check it out again. I just don't listen to many LP's or CDs anymore. Google's Youtube music is what I play at home & I still have my old iPod hooked up in my car.
Yeah, I loaded all my CDs and albums onto a Yamaha Musiccast (an early days home audio MP3 player) maybe 20 years ago and haven't listened to physical media since then. And all I listen to now is the playlists I've built, some have only a few songs and some have several thousand in them. I no longer have a clue what album any song was originally from unless I check my album list on my computer (where I also loaded everything but kept the album format intact).
It's been so long since I even thought in terms of "album" that I had to search my album list on my imac just to find the name of the Petty box set. And yeah, I still have my ipod hooked up in my car. The ipod's a necessity though because where I live, you can't get over the air radio and I don't drive enough to justify Sirius any more.
Moby was tasked with writing a new song in 48 hours by the NPR Project Song.
He not only did it but produced three versions.
Moby - Gone To Sleep Music Video
so now what : The Shins
The Lumineers - Ho Hey
The Shins are a terrific, if not underrated band. Mercer does seem like he's a little difficult personally, but he's a great talent.
One of my faves:
Separate names with a comma.
