another twelve songs from the dj/pimp in my laptop, along
with gratuitous commentary:
1. cat stevens - the first cut is the deepest
I still want you buy my side
the yanks gave me a rough rough ride.
i'm sure gonna give it a try
and if you want i'll try to fly again
2. avril lavigne - he was'nt
well...she ain't no juliana hatfield.
3. bruce cockburn - waiting for a miracle
somewhere out there is a place that's cool
where peace and balance are the rule
4. the white stripes - hello operator
where did this come from? who are these guys? not bad but they sound a little drugged.
5. natalie merchant - ophelia
i would like to see her live. in concert, i mean.
6. bob dylan - tight connection to my heart
I remember the video. Nothing like writing a love song and packing it with 10 layers of meaning.
7. monty python - philosophers drinking song
Yes, Socrates, himself, is particularly missed,
A lovely little thinker,
But a bugger when he's pissed.
Shame on M.Python for disparaging our western intellectual tradition in this tawdry manner. Malkin should get on them.
8 lisa loeb - stay
Its such a sad song. I remember the video because all the girls started dressing like her. Is she an singer/actor or an actor/singer?
9. beach boys - do you want to dance
Classic. My sister Buffy and I used to play this over and over again on our Electrohome Hi-Fi until Mr. French would come in and make us stop. Buffy always said Mr. French had a sordid past. More on that later.
10. donovan leitch - mellow yellow
Is gonna be a sudden craze
Is bound to be the very next phase
Except in Alabama, where it is still very much illegal.
11. skydiggers - toss & turn
One of the most under-rated canadian bands. I saw them live a while back but I think they've broken apart now.
12. mae moore - nothing but the truth
Another totally under-rated Canadian artist.
Yeah, I guess its time to get some new music into the club.
