Walk this way

Big thank you Megalodon for this gem. I can’t remember seeing Dragnet, but I know I’ve never seen Dan Akroyd or Tom Hanks rap. This video is so very 1987. Someone with money clearly just said, legally rip-off Run DMC’s Walk this Way and make a promotional music video this movie. As Mike said to me: it’s not on Spotify, but it should be.

Shocking

Have ya’ll heard the new Margo Price? It is great.

Accompanying the release is a Spotify playlist that is utterly dynamite:

On that is playlist is this hot jam from Shocking Blue (yes, the band that that sang the oldies-staple Venus). Here is that:

I want to be your Sledgehammer

While I don’t think Harry Styles did anything new with or added anything unique to this cover of Peter Gabriel’s Sledgehammer, the live drums on this are fucking fantastic.

Couldn’t ‘ave come at a better time.

Apparently it’s St. Patricks day?! I’m kinda surprised I haven’t posted these songs before. (Previous St. Paddy posts/songs from 2011, 2010, 2009, 2008) They are definitely not on Spotify. My favorite two songs off the album. Can You Hear The Rangers Sing / Sean South has definitely the go-to Irish song thanks to Brendan. Here are some mp3s:

Dumb & Dumber

I got very cynical dismissive last year around this time when someone passed around this list of best soundtracks from Pitchfork. The main reason was because Dumb & Dumber was nowhere to be found on it. It has this fantastic version of Ballad of Peterpumpkinhead by Crash Test Dummies, The Bear Song by Green Jelly, a cover of Get Ready by the Proclaimers, (more fun fact than good song) Take by the Lupins (of Q101 Lance & Stoley’s fame). Although YouTube says this is Crash (’95 Remix) by the Primitives, I swear there was a fantastic acoustic outro.

Maybe the judges didn’t rate it because all of the songs are not on Spotify. Jonathon Brandmeier favorite (I can’t find link to corroborate with my memory of this, but…) New Age Girl by Dead Eye Dick is not on Spotify at all.
