Have you seen the Heinekin ad with the kids singing “Just A Friend” in the back of the cab and the cabbie singing along. Awwww.
Bug – Mandy Moore
Love Me Love Back – Mandy Moore
All Good Things – Mandy Moore
I didn’t say Moore’s “Amanda Leigh” was a bad album, I said it was disappointing album and it is. “Bug” is another hubby Ryan soundalike and not bad but no “All Good Things” -a heartbreaker off 2007s magical “Wild Hope”. I saw her at Irving Plaza on the 2007 tour and thought she was earnestly average.
See How We Are – X
The Last Days Of Summer – Steve Soto and the Twisted Hearts
Travellin’ Light – Cliff Richard
Don’t Haunt This Place – the Rural Alberta Advantage
My friend went to RAA last night at the Mercury Lounge and she texted me to say they were revelatory which, since they are recording for the singular Saddle Creek, isn’t a shock. Sorta Folk-rock with more instruments.
Marie Marie – Dave Alvin
My Job – Cam’ron
Check Yes Or No – George Strait
Troubadour – George Strait
I am thinking of writing a blog about ACM artist of the decade Strait. “Troubadour” is another great song off 2008’s another great same named album.
