Its been awhile since I did an Austin-length post, so here one is:
The last two years, I have reset all the plays on the ol’ ipod just to see what I’ve been listening to over the year. What I thought might have been a Robyn song or Austin’s fav Gone by Kanye was actually a list featuring the songs (1) Erase Me by Kid Cudi, (2) Forever in Blue Jeans by Neil, (3) Rockin Pneumonia by Johnny Rivers, Roger Miller’s (4)You Can’t Rollerskate in a buffalo herd and (5)Chug-a-lug, Mumford and Sons (6)The Cave and (7)Little Lion Man, (8)Plastic Jesus sung by Paul Newman, (9)Angel from Montgomery by Bonnie Raitt and (10)King of Spain by Tallest Man on Earth. (in case anyone cared).
Continuing the discussion about samples, particularly Otis Redding samples in rap songs, Soul-Sides has a nice post worth reading/listening.
With a recent Father/Daughter dance worth of top 40 jams in the ipod, here are some favorites that have gotten some repeat plays outside of the dance: Stronger by Kelly Clarkson, Honey Bee by Blake Shelton, Love You Like a Love Song by Selena Gomez and the Scene and T.H.E.(The Hardest Ever) by Will.I.Am.
Flo Rida’s Good Feeling might be on that last list too, but it definitely got a bump since Etta James is no longer with us. Something’s Got a Hold On Me is a jam, but nothing compares to Ellen’s fav In The Basement.
Not much else that I can think of, other than if you like The Kills or The Velvet Underground, this cover of Pale Blue Eyes is pretty good. This song has pretty awful lyrics, but the Martians vs. Aliens beat is stuck in my head.
