Special Naughty Children

Special Naughty Children

1. Naughty – The Musical Original Soundtrack – The shoulda been a contender off the Broadway Musical, has a nice rhythm stop and start till it reaches the bridge, which is lovely indeed. Unfortunately, kids sound like kids… axiom for the ages? “Sometimes you have to make a little mischief” – B+

2. (What’s So Funny ‘Bout) Peace, Love And Understanding – Tomas Doncker Band – Is all hope lost? – A

3. Don’t walk Away – Aaron Lee Tasjan – If this country folk East Nashville resident isn’t on your radar get him there, after a fine set opening for Billy Joe Shaver he is sure on mine, the current EP Crooked River Burning is a goodie and this, the opening track, earns its tug at you – A-

4. I Was Born With Nothing (And I’ve Still Got Half Of It Left) – The Madison Square Gardeners- the guitar riff works as a bridge and a coda, and it should – B+

5. Tulane – Chuck Berry – After the great 28, here comes another masterful flying car song – A+

6. The Imposter – Elvis Costello And The Attractions – Off my favorite album of the year, I listened to it more than I ever have the time to in 2014 -best line is where he’ll only bring you souvenirs and its only gonna end in tears  – A

7. Sucker – Charli XCX – The title track of her sophomore is an awesome shoutout because she’s awesome – A

8. The Whistling Gypsy – The Clancy Brothers – My first favorite song ever, I musta been three years when I sang along to it on a children’s album – A+

9. Air – Gail Mcdermott – Doo Wop meets broadway in the summer of love – A

10. Prologue: Into The Woods –  Company – Perfect Sondheim, taking strads from four (fairy) tales and bringing them together for a stirring ending – B+
