Feel a Little Poke

The Highlight of being dragged through shopping today was hearing this 1997, Middle School classic. Definitely the go-to song about Boners for my generation.

Song #339: Next - Too Close

Great Friday

Last night's show was AMAZING. Very reminiscent of the way The Allman Brothers play on tour. Good times indeed.

Song #338: The Black Crowes - Good Friday

Freak & Roll

Tonight I will be at Times Square's Best Buy Theater for what could be The Black Crowes final tour (at least for a while). In this dude's humble opinion, The Crowes are the finest set of Minstrels, or the best group of touring musicians out there today. These guys are on the road around 75% of the year, spreading their music and paying homage to their influences the world over. This is going to be my 4th time seeing these guys, in my 3rd state (Tennessee, Ohio, and 2 in New York), every time at a different venue. I like to think that tonight's format is inspired by the second show I went to, which was during frontman Chris Robinson's divorce from talentless wannabee Chameleon, Kate Hudson. On that August day in 2008, heartbroken, Chris rallied his brother Rich and the other Crowes to perform an entire Acoustic set of their folksier, more existential tunes, followed by plugged-in, blow you away, Rock Heavy set. From what I'm hearing, tonight's Say Goodbye to the Bad Guys tour should be similar, but as explained before, still unlike any show ever.

Song #337: The Black Crowes - Stop Kicking My Heart Around

Beginnings and Endings

Today we enter the final month of this project. I'm not sure what will become of it, or you, or me in the subsequent year(s) but I do know it's been a delight to have shared the last, god only knows, how many days (I just realized the counter is wrong) recommending songs out into the never-ending world wide web. 

As I work on fixing the math, I realize that if I have any songs or anecdotes left to share, I better start getting them out. During this year long process, I definitely have found myself holding on to certain ideas or records because there just wasn't enough time for me to fully synthesize my thoughts into a form that would do it any justice. Well, the gloves are off and I'm certainly going to be bringing it in this final month. I guarantee if it's not a ridiculous story (like Busta Christmas or Clowns at Bars) trust that the song is straight fire.  Strap in and Stay tuned.

Oh, the segue is that today's song has my favorite line to begin a song (Non Rap Category).

Song #336?: The Kinks - Animal Farm

Wait it's also this one... Prepare to be utterly blown away by Ziggy's main Spider, Mick Ronson.

BONUS SONG: David Bowie - Moonage Daydream
