Tell me Spotify

I guess we could/should cruise into some Irish Not On Spotify songs. I haven’t researched why, but I am upset that my favorite Tosser’s albums are not on Spotify.

From Communication and Conviction: the Last Seven Years, Buckets of Beer is great, Paper and Pins was included on the cd’s I gave out at my wedding, Seven Drunken Nights and Finnegan’s Wake are classics, and the live version of Irish Rover (can’t find it other than the preview here) is worth playing over and over if only for the intro banter of “All right, you fucks, this is the Irish Rover”.

Every St. Patrick’s day season I would force their version of Tell Me Ma in the rotation, for no else’s enjoyment other than my own.

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.

I’m Sofa King

I started writing this post feeling very cute to have a Songs Not On Spotify post go from Danger Mouse to MF Doom’s Cartoon Network release, The Mouse and the Mask as Danger Doom. Though I am bummed it doesn’t technically apply to this category, I double checked and am happy to report that the remixed verison is now on Spotify. The non-remix version– according to Spotify– wasn’t there for a really long time, but it really is the better of the verisons:
