And The Birthday Mixes Just Keep On Coming
The half-week-long "Burning Wood First Birthday Celebration" continues with two big mixes to close out the week. Or, if you prefer, start the holiday weekend. Play it the way you like.
I can't say I spent too much time working these mixes out. I was just happy to have some music back in the ol' HD. After a few playbacks, I think I'm quite happy with the turnout. As expected, the music speaks for itself. There may even be a theme here.
Some quick thoughts:
"Tapioca Tundra"-my fave Monkees tune.
"Minor Byrd"- not only my fave You Am I song, but one of the few I like at all. I don't get You Am I. I've heard so many raves--"THE WHO! THE JAM! THE...WHATEVER!" I don't hear it.
"I'm Looking Through You"- How cool are The Posies? They cover the Beatles alternate "Anthology 2" version of this "Rubber Soul" track.
"House On The Hill"- Did you know Ray Davies produced The Turtles?
"Harvest"- Rufus Wainwright is a "love'em or hate'em" guy. I love'em and I love this duet with Chris Stills. If you get out your time machine, this Neil cover could easily be Loudon & Stephen.
"Never Going Back"- I want to thank Steve over at Power Pop for reminding how wonderful this song is. You can thank him yourself HERE.
"Your Daddy Don't Know"- Toronto cover anyone?
"Bully"--I have no idea. Found this years ago and have loved it ever since.
