10 Songs, Sunday, April 27th, 2014

me oh my oh

me oh my oh

1. Fever On The Bayou – Rodney Crowell – What a tinglingly wonderful singalong country swamp song, it rolls off the tongue and snaps like a frog at a flea – A

2. Longer Than You’ve Been Alive – Old 97’s – “20 good years out of about 25” isn’t a bad assessment and it is Rhett’s. Including this one, I’d claim it is more like 16 good years – A

3. This Is A Low – Blur – As a pace changer I loved this, but as a career not so much – B+

4. The Village Green Preservation Society – The Kinks – In their dreams Blur come up with something this great – A+

5. Sunny Afternoon – The Kinks – Of course, when you’re paying 90% supertax, the taxman might be a very real problem. Plus, his callousness after his girl has left is a precise expression of how to deal with stress – A+

6. Just One More Chance – Bucky Pizzarelli, Frank Vignola – Sounds Hawaiian though there is no ukulele- B+

7. Popscene – Blur – It’s true, you can never go home again. What can you say about this steamrolling UK pop masterpiece? Damon refused to put it on the UK Modern Life Is Rubbish because it wasn’t a hit. Take that – A+

8. Agatha Chang – Eels – He regrets dumping Agatha and now we all have to suffer – D+

9. Country House – Blur – Damon’s problem is he took the change of tempo and mood on the bridge and made a career of it – A

10. Can’t Stand Me Now – The Libertines – They’ve just announced they are reforming to tour the UK. Expect no new york because Pete can’t get a visa. Not a big shocker there right? – A-
