Friday Music Day: June 13, 2013

This sounds like good news for those of us who are literally sick of writing $1 checks to Warner every few months when another of one's Friends-and-relations reaches an anniversary of his birth. It raises the question what other copyrights are being defended erroneously.

  5. O.k. I have a partner and place to stay for the Chicago Riotfest concert. Now I just have to convince him to pay the $100 upcharge for VIP tix. He likes to drink so I think the 15 beverage tickets that come with VIP will be a major selling point.

        1. While looking for Tracy Ullman's sweet cover of this MacColl number,
          I discovered a BBC doc about the woman. (Guess I know what I'm watching tonight...)

        2. I only learned of the tragic and infuriating circumstances surrounding Kirsty's death about a year ago. I still get peeved thinking about it, though she wasn't really on my radar until she was gone.

          1. You weren't alone. I only knew of her while she was recording because of a kindly record store clerk. (Thanks, Ryan at Let it Be Records!)

            If you have a spare hour, that documentary is well worth your time.

  9. I loaded up a TMBG pandora station a couple weeks ago... I've thumbed up and down a good handful of songs. This week's list is a product of that seed:

    1. "The Lumberjack Song" - Monty Python
    2. "Can't Keep Johnny Down" - TMBG
    3. "Over The Rainbow" - Israel 'IZ' Kamakawiwo'ole
    4. "Perform This Way" - Weird Al
    5. "Tom Cruise Crazy" - Jonathan Coulton
    6. "The Great Beyond" - R.E.M.
    7. "Dead" - TMBG
    8. "Always Look On The Bright Side Of Life" - Monty Python
    9. "I Will Survive" - Cake
    10. "The One I Love" - R.E.M.
    B: "The Future Soon" - Jonathan Coulton

    I'll confess, I freaking love this stuff.

      1. Yeah. "Code Monkey" has become one of my favorites, along with "The Future Soon" and "Re: Your Brains."

        I've seen him live too. In an insanely intimate setting. There was a little room that held about 30 people. It was Coulton and John Hodgman, back when Hodgman's first book came out and no one knew who he was. They literally passed a bottle of whisky around the room, with dixie cups. One of the coolest experiences I've had.

    1. I haven't listened to as much TMBG as some others may have, but "Dead" is a high-quality song.
      I think it's my fave off "Flood" but it's been a while.

      1. Well, "Birdhouse In Your Soul" is from Flood, so... but "Dead" is fantastic, yes.

        1. I totally scooped you, Pepper.
          Gotta wake up pretty early if you wanna report the news in this basement.

    1. That's why you never see it on TV. Futurama has famously poked at it with a soundalike. Restaurants aren't supposed to use it either.

      1. i think on "fresh prince" (?) once they used the chorus from "happy birthday" by stevie wonder, which i thought was kind of cool actually, especially if you're going to have to shell out some money anyway.

      2. a great bit from the long lost show Sports Night


        and this


        'it took two people to write that song?' is one of my favorite lines ever.

  10. Am I too late?

    * The Consolamentum - Richard A. Ingram - Consolamentum
    * It Takes a Lot to Laugh, It Takes a Train to Cry - Bob Dylan - Highway 61 Revisited
    * Mr. Soul - Neil Young - Sugar Mountain: Live at Canterbury House 1968
    * Whirring - The Joy Formidable - The Big Roar

    * Cherylee - Gowns - Red State
    * Promises Broken - Soul Asylum - Let Your Dim Light Shine
    * Rough Steez - Fuck Buttons - Tarot Sport

    The second half of "Cherylee" is one of those that gets stuck in my head for days.
