"Reelin'! (And Rockin', Too...I Guess)" : THE WEEKEND MIX
The weather in NYC has been so unseasonably beautiful, I almost forgot to moan about shit.
I was tempted to stash away the winter sweaters and unbox the Bermudas, but I played it safe and instead, shelved the Nick Drake and Nico records and whipped out some rocking goodies.
Like, Brenda Lee's fiery take on "What'd I Say," which I had never heard before Mr. Simels over at the indispensible Power Pop paid it some mind.
Like, Tom Jones doing Little Richard proud on "Bama Lama Bama Loo."
Like, the Elton penned, Rod & Elton rocker "Let Me Be Your Car," from back when neither sucked.
Like, Raphael Saadiq taking his fantastic retro-soul style up a notch with the hot hot "Heart Attack."
Like, one of my very favorite Stones songs off of one of my very favorite Stones albums, "Surprise, Surprise" from the underrated gem, "Rolling Stones Now!"
Like, Nick Lowe's rockabilly, Record Store Day exclusive, "(I've Changed My) Wild Mind."
Get in on it!
