Friday music Day: May 18, 2012

So, things don't look good for the PC. Booted Ubuntu, couldn't see that there were any files on the HD, where there should be files. I may be listening to the same 3400 songs on my iPod for a long time.

This is for Phil:

  4. No time to put together a list today (wife has outpatient surgery a bit later this morning), but just wanted to mention that I was able to get my (relatively) new PC to access my work VPN. Gotta say, it sounds great streaming through the home theater system I use for a sound system. The extra real estate on the widescreen monitor doesn't hurt my productivity either with half a dozen Unix windows and other stuff open on it (esp. when there's a day game 😉 ). Oh, and Google Chrome instead of IE -- yay

    1. Is this Lee's only love song?

    2. Dub Version of “Jordan River”. Garvey's Ghost is full-album dub version of Marcus Garvey, available on the one-disc double-album collection of both, 100th Anniversary, released to celebrate an anniversary of Garvey's birth.

    5. Skull Valley (aka Tom Chasteen, better knows as Tranquility Bass) remix of Sly & Robbie dub version of Tamlins' cover of Randy Newman's "Baltimore" in the style of Nina Simone. Yeah, that's some pedigree.

    7. I almost bought the CD version of this (2-disc set with Passed Me By) last time I was at the Electric Fetus, but it cost like $23 and that seemed steep. I now see that there are four bonus tracks. Hmmm...

    8. After freealonzo & I saw Lydia Loveless back in November or December, her dad (her drummer) said that they were recording another Daytrotter Session the next day or the day after that, but they still haven't posted it. I'm really jonesin' for it.

    1. Thanks for the offer, but I don't think that will be necessary.
      Even if the drive is toast, I really haven't lost anything: just the stuff I've ripped. Which means I'll just need to go back through my shelves. So, maybe that would help. Everything I've stolen was already on an external.

      Either way, it'll be a while (weeks to months) until I get a new computer and get iTunes installed, so I'll be unable to alter what's on my iPod.

      I guess a DVD of MP3s could be helpful rather than re-ripping things. I'll let you know if I could use your help. (I'm picturing that you're planning on sending me tons of Deerhoof and Fiery Furnaces, although I know you're better than that.)

  11. Here's the list. Meh.

    1. Freckle - Chuck Prophet
    2. Organ Donor - Jeremy Messersmith
    3. Right Place, Wrong Time - Dr. John
    4. Never Been To Spain - 3 Dog Night

    7. The '59 Sound - The Gaslight Anthem
    8. Fernando - ABBA
    9. Help - Beatles
    10. Like a Virgin - Madonna
    Bonus: Beachwood 4-5789 - The Marvelettes.

  12. Thanks for the song too. I did not know that one. I was wondering what y'all were referencing...

  13. Every year I put together a summer mix, for the long car rides and what-not. This year, I'm not having much inspiration. I'm hoping y'all can help me. Songs for a summer mix generally need to have strong replay value, potentially some sing-along value, breakout songs (that haven't been overplayed yet) and "songs that were popular but have kind of been forgotten about but are still good songs" tend to work well too. Also, they need to have no swears, since the kids will hear them a lot.

    Here is last year's summer mix, for an example (I'm pretty proud of this one). It gives a good feel for what I'm looking for:

    1. Yeah Yeah Yeah Song - Flaming Lips
    2. Impression That I Get - Mighty Mighty Bosstones
    3. Hold On Hope - Guided By Voices
    4. Oh La La - Faces
    5. This Too Shall Pass - OK Go
    6. You've Got The Love - Florence + The Machine
    7. American Girl - Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers
    8. Undone (The Sweater Song) - Weezer
    9. Pumped Up Kicks - Foster The People
    10. Santa Monica - Everclear
    11. Loaded - Idle Hands
    12. Crimson and Clover - Tommy James
    13. Energy - Apples In Stereo
    14. Let's Spend The Night Together - Rolling Stones
    15. How A Resurrection Really Feels - The Hold Steady
    16. The Frug - Rilo Kiley
    17. Good - Better Than Ezra
    18. Hurt Feelings - Flight of the Conchords
    19. Thieves - She and Him
    20. Last Dance - Ravonettes
    21. Enjoy Yourself - The Specials

    Suggestions for this year's list greatly appreciated!

      1. I'm gonna try to avoid Weezer this year (they were on 2010's list too), but that's a good call otherwise.

        I think "Sympathy For The Devil" is the only song I've got locked into this year's mix.

    1. my list today reminded me i need to pull out that smith western's album again. great summer album:


    2. Can't go wrong with this.


      Or this.


      ...try to avoid Weezer...

      Sound advice. 😉

    3. Phil,
      Sometimes I wonder if we're the same person. I put together a Summer CD every year, too. Copies to my Sister-in-Law and M-i-L. (My mom doesn't care, and I always forget to send one to my sister in AK.)

      My mixes are focused upon what's current: like a way to listen to what a good radio station would be playing, but still get a sense of what'll be essential due only to its popularity. Curated top-40, with a bit of genre expansion. I typically listen to a lot of early rumours and stuff and try to predict what the hits will be, or at least what they should be.

      I notice a complete lack of Bloodshot recording artists on your list. That needs to be fixed for 2012. I've been inspired to start a list of about 100 songs. I'm not done with it, but then I'll trim it down. If Twayn can save my HD, I might be able to put them all in a zip bundle and share it with you (which will be easier than searching out all these tracks on youtube or whatever to test whether I've lead you astray. I may just e-mail you my list.

      1. Didn't see this until this morning. Very excited. Unfamiliar with Bloodshot. Please e-mail me any suggestions, including a handful of "musts."? Thanks.

  14. Hey, now that I got music on my iPhone I can do this again.

    01. Desperados Waiting for a Train - Tom Rush
    02. Free Bird - Lynyrd Skynyrd
    03. If I Needed Someone - The Beatles
    04. Cotton Needs Pickin' - Ry Cooder
    05. Draggin' the Line - Tommy James and the Shondells
    06. Hang Down Your Head Tom Dooley- The Kingston Trio
    07. Puttin' on the Ritz - Benny Goodman Orchestra feat. Fred Astaire
    08. Four Sticks - Led Zeppelin
    09. Every Time I Roll the Dice - Delbert McClinton
    10. Green Grass and High Tides - The Outlaws

  15. On Zack's recommendation, I'm streaming The Money Store by Death Grips. Pardon the outburst, but this shit is insane. I like.
