"Mood Swingin'" : THE WEEKEND MIX

This is definitely a moody selection of songs and not your usual collection of pounders or stompers. It's not all melancholy, but as I pieced it together over the last two weeks, I did see a theme taking shape, so I ran with it.  If I do say so myself, it really plays out nicely.

Enjoy. There are some great things here, including my favorite Tom Petty tune, my favorite Delaney & Bonnie tune, a gem from the Beach Boys, an absolute heartbreaker from the new Bonnie Raitt, Moby Grape's "8:05" which I could listen to on repeat, a track from one of my favorite albums of all time, Wilco's "Summerteeth," and a late career classic from the "Chairman Of The Board."

Get moody!

Well now. Is this the soundtrack I want to go along with my current uncertain state of mind? Maybe it is. Life isn't all stompers and groovers after all. And I have come to trust your choices, Sal, so I will give it a spin.

'She's a Jar' is quite simply one of the very best songs ever written. The last line punches you in the solar plexus every damn time.

Looks great Sal! I'm looking forward to hearing that Dillard & Clark (a Beatles cover??) and the Sinatra and all of it. Cheers!

I thought I was the only person who liked that Afghan Whigs Supremes cover.


This mix is great!

Many thanks Sal.

Nice eclectic mix Sal. Plus the funny photo of the late great Frank Fontaine. If anyone really remembers who he is and what his schtick was. He was an early version of Gomer Pyle. Have a good weekend!

I wonder how many people remember Crazy Guggenheim.

I forgot about that great Joan Armatrading song...

Whatever happened to her?

She just put a new record out. I think she's been releasing music consistently in the UK, but apparently lost her US audience years ago
