Poker Face – Lady Gaga
Too Tough – The Rolling Stones
Tomorrow – Paul McCartney Off Wing’s loudly maligned “Wild Life” in the early 70s, Wings spoke to McCartney’s very successful attempt to forge a new band identity (a friend of mine was the photographer on Wings college tour around this time and speaks of the team spirit) even if he kept all the money. “Tomorrow” is a high light off this sprite, weightless recommended album
Boyfriend # 2 – Pleasure P
I’m A Beast – Pleasure P
Gotta Have You – Pleasure P – Pleasure P began life in an R&B boy band but I know him from a Flo Rida sample. These three songs are off his very good devut album “The Introduction Of Marcus Cooper” especially “Boyfriend # 2” (so much kinder to her than boyfriend # 1) which should break pop.
Temecula Sunrise – Dirty Projector
When I Look Into Your Eyes – Diana Krall
My Resistance Is Low – Hoagy Carmichael
The Crooked Line – Elvis Costello
Family Tradition – Hank Williams Jn The nashville music fest is going on as we speak. Kid rock was a surprise guess but this is what is rockin’ chick out of water brooklyn gir’ls hearts.
This Lonely Love – Juliana Hatfield Real good song with Psychedelic Fur/Love Spit Lover Richard Butler. I’m prepping myself to write about her soon.
I Need To Know Where I stand – Rhett Miller The best album off his real good newbie, when Miller gets it right he gets it sooooooooooo right. This is singer/songwriterdom of such an impossibly high standard. Nobody could write this well all the time, it’d kill em. Catch this brilliant bit of wordplay (then blow a buck and buy it): “I’m reaching for you but you’re falling away, this has gotten so out of hand.” This is a poorly lit extract of the song from youtube http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-5m_dnR3o48
I’m In Miami Bitch – LMFAO
A Change Is Gonna Come – Adam Lambert
Mad World – Adam Lambert
Sexy Little Thing – Chicken Foot
Tammy – Debbie Reynolds Thrilled to be going to see her with Chickie and Steve on Friday at the Carlyle
Blue Lips – Regina Spektor Thrilled to be going to see her at the Beacon on Wednesday.
Put It there Pal – Bob Hope With Bing Crosby, the great team make fun at each other but Hope only really takes umbrage is when he is called a square “Uh, Uh. Is that on the paper? That line? Square? Where?” He sez coming unhinged but not failing to rhyme. “I don’t see it.” From youtube http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uf_6O8i3Exo
Underdog – Kasabian
The Sun Is Down – Yoko Ono/Plastic Ono Band
Day ‘N’ Nite – Kid Cudi
Forever & Always – Taylor Swift Google the SNL version.
I Need You Now – Smokie Norful Guess I gotta wait till McDonald’s Gospelfest.
You Don’t Love God (If You Don’t Love Your Neighbor) – Carl Story My friend introduced me to this bluegrass gospel song and it is very wonderful indeed. That should do it for a Sunday, say Amen ssomebody
he might feel forgotten but he isn’t
Let’s hope next year is better…
