The Rapture – Echoes

I went out for a couple of cold ones with some pals on Friday night. We went to young, hip, ironic people bars. We thought "hey we're Dads now. Let's remember what it was like to be young". Well every stupid bar we walked into was playing the Rapture way louder than it should have been.

And yes, I understand that by playing the Rapture here and now I am no better than them.

R.E.M. – It’s the End of the World as We Know It (And I Feel Fine)

all right, for this special occasion, i really wanted to play "darker with the day", the stunningly beautiful finale to nick cave and the bad seeds' equally beautiful 2001 release no more shall we part. alas, except for a couple of blurry coffeehouse troubadours, there were no live performances to be found (i do recommend clicking on the above link in its stead).

barring that, we'll go for the obvious, hackneyed choice (as bS already scooped the blondie cut).

Embrace – 3 Is The Magic Number

Jeff Buckley, De La Soul, and Blind Melon, have all taken turns with this School House Rock title before.  Here is an English group, Embrace. I chose them because the video was live and of the highest quality.

I wonder if Jobu is going to play Marvelous 3 or 3 Days Grace tomorrow.

Meat Puppets – Whirlpool

i want to give a big thank you to AMR. another great installment in a great line of DJ weeks. well done, good sir. everything wasn't my cup o' tea, but i believe that's the point of DJ weeks, and the WGOM videos in general.

anyway, i believe he expressed regret that he wasn't able to get to the meat puppets, and i was sad he didn't get to it either. well, based on my research, classic MP performances are hard to come by on the YT, but here's one:
