Our Lady Peace – Starseed

jobu e-mailed me recently saying we were about due for a theme week. After tossing around some ideas (shark week, nfl countdown week, and a week of albums that let down as much as the 2011 Twins) Michael Cuddiier helped us out and gave us a theme. With his High School like gossiping to reporters and it being back to school time jobu and I decided to crank tunes we loved while we were in High School. Pardon us if we show our age here.

Anyway, growing up so close to Canada I grew up on Canadian radio. Just like Geddy Lee I was cranking CFNY. What makes Canadian radio great is they have to play something like 2 Canadian bands every hour, or something like that. Because of this I got a steady dose of bands like I Mother Earth, Moist, Treblecharger, and OLP. This matured into Sloan, Broken Social Scene, By Divine right and other excellent Canadian bands. Anyway, here is one of my early most favorite bands, Our Lady Peace.

  1. Do Guest DJ weeks count as theme weeks? Will that be two weeks in a row then? My selections next week are probably going to be almost all similar enough to each other that they could count as a theme.

    1. Nice. Richie Furay. (Buffalo Springfield)

      Back to yesterday's topic, no one touches Neil when it come to the singer-songwriter genre. Not James Taylor. Not Jim Croce. Not Johnny Cash. Not Bob Dylan. Not Will Oldham. No one.

        I suppose I'm with Neil, too, but I'd really have to think about Dylan and Cash. That's a tough call.

        1. It's strictly a personal thing. Dylan is an amazing songwriter. I wouldn't put Cash anywhere near either of them, I only included him because I know the Nation loves them some Johnny. But the fact is, nobody has more songs that hit straight to my heart than ol' Shakey. I'm finally getting around to digesting the 10 disc Neil Young Archives Vol. 1: 1963-1972. It has reaffirmed his position as my all-time favorite. As to why? In his own words (though he wrote them about roadie Bill Berry):

          He'd sing a song in a shaky voice that was real as the day was long

          I remember when it came out, some scribe described Archives Vol. 1 as "for fanatics only". I believe he was talking about me.

        2. I'm still with Neil, although I am a considerable Dylan fan and Cash fan.

          Also, I'm embarrassed to discover just how many great songs Cash wrote. For some reason, I always assumed that he was singing other people's songs. "Get Rythm," "Cry, Cry, Cry," "Big River," "I Walk the Line," "Folsom Prison Blues," "Guess Things Happen That Way," "The Ways of a Woman in Love," "Don't Take Your Guns to Town."

          that's a career right there, but it's only some of the singles he put out between 1955 and 1958.

          Here's one of his first big hits, "So Doggone Lonesome"

          httpv://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0mIAxDxU-yI

          1. "Everybody Knows This Is Nowhere"
            "Down by the River"
            "Running Dry (Requiem for the Rockets)"
            "Cowgirl in the Sand"
            "After the Gold Rush"
            "Only Love Can Break Your Heart"
            "I Believe in You"
            "Don't Let It Bring You Down"
            "A Man Needs a Maid"
            "Harvest"
            "Heart of Gold"
            "Old Man"
            "The Needle and the Damage Done"

            That's only from '69-'72.

              1. Now why you wanna bring up Souhan here, doc? Can't the videos be a Souhan-free zone? 😉

                Neil's great song are as natural as breathing. There is an honesty to his music that just can't be faked.

                And he's Canadian, too!*

                *trying to tie highjacked thread back to the hitman's original theme.
