"October '09" : THE WEEKEND MIX
"Your head will collapse
If there's nothing in it
And you'll ask yourself...Where is my mind"
Damn straight, Charlie. Those words are from The Pixies, "Where Is My Mind," which is nowhere to be found on this "Weekend Mix," but expresses where I've been the last two days.
My plan for this "Weekend Mix" was to share a playlist of songs that has been on repeat the last week on my iPod, AND give you a litte background on each. But I got caught up in some...stuff...and only managed to get the music up.
That's what counts, right?
A fantastic track from the new Avett Brothers CD
One of my favorite songs from one of my favorite John Cale albums, the painfully out of print "Honi Soit."
A very hip and very new re-working of The Beatles by the very new and very hip Depreciation Guild
A killer track from early 80's rock radio, Nazareth's "Holiday," with its perfectly infectious chorus
One of a dozen ELO covers wonderfully reconstructed by Parthenon Huxley.
A cool Leiber & Stoller rocker from The Du Droppers
The just as cool rarity from Philip & The Faithfuls, courtesy of the Goldwax label
Mick Ronson does Moby Grape
Ron Wood does George Harrison
And "The Boss" with his live farewell tribute to Giants Stadium.
(Did I miss anything?)
I hope to be back in full swing soon.
