10 Songs: Friday, May 14th, 2015

97s_0408_8

1 – No Baby I – Old 97’s – This is my fave Rhett song, and there are a lot of songs ready to undertake the task. It musical terms, it is absolute perfection, a typical Rhett break up song is more because of one of the greatest images ever, blaming tears on gravity – A+

2 – Jules – Rhett Miller – The backing band is too busy, but it is a strange heartbreaker “there’s no such thing as rescuing a girl as strong as you” reverberates through romance – A

3 – Innocent When You Dream – Tom Waits – The only time I’ve seen Waits live, at the Beacon Theatre in 1999, this was one of two highlights… it could be from a Disney movie – A

4 – Shine – Years & Years – The buzz on this band ain’t living it up – B+

5 – She’s Always In My Hair – Prince – The flip side to “Raspberry Beret”, the synths give it a tinny sound, but it is still a smart funk work out – B+

6 – She’s Always In My Hair – D’Angelo – The band is 100% tighter and stronger than Prince, and D’Angelo actually sings it back, but they don’t quite have the rhythm down – B+

7 – Fourfiveseconds – Kanye, Rihanna, Paul McCartney – For the record, this has around 150M streams on Spotify, Macca’s next closest is a live version of “Live And Let Die” with nearly 10M. Any questions? – B+

8 – And I Love Her – Kurt Cobain – If they loop this twice, it will be a monster hit – A

9 – And I Love Her – The Beatles – His late career resurrection continues unabated… the man can do no wrong… – A

10 – I Need A Man – Lael Summer – Soulful and youthful, still horn rimmed beauty off her first album – B+
