"Disc Two": THE WEEKEND MIX
There were plenty of great suggestions from all of you, but there was only so much room. Thank you for playing. Now you can play this.
I've added a few of my personal faves to this playlist of oddities that failed to make the official cut and those are the songs I will mention here. For those late to the party, check the comments of yesterday's post for details on the rest of the tracks.
World Party's "When You Come Back To Me" is a piece of brilliance from Karl Wallinger found on the "Reality Bites" soundtrack. It is a Rutles-esque take on Bowie's "Young Americans" that has been killing me since it first appeared in 1994.
"Supercute" is just one more from Prince's never-ending selection of unreleased tunes that are better than what he releases officially.
Marvin Gaye's "Where Are We Going" can be found as a bonus track on the deluxe edition of "What's Goin' On." A stunner.
David Bowie's surprise return to the studio, "The Next Day," is still on heavy rotation, and this Japanese only bonus track, "God Bless The Girl," which also found its way to the "The Next Day Extra" CD, is a fave, sounding like a perfect blend of "The Man Who Sold The World"-era Bowie and 2014 Bowie.
