Tough Guy Tuesday

Today, we have the kings of hardcore/metalcore, Earth Crisis, with “Panic Floods”.  This jam is tough to beat.  It’s one of the few original songs on their album Last of the Sane, which is mostly covers. Advertisements

Mellow Monday

I love pretty piano playing.  Here’s some by Bert from the Used with “Sometimes I Just Go For It”.

Fab Four Friday

The structure of this song is super fascinating to me.  Those tricky Beatles.  Here is “Two of Us”.

Throwback Thursday

This is my favorite song from the 90’s that has a golf-related video.  Here’s Dinosaur Jr. with “Feel the Pain”.

How can you go wrong with hip hop ballads for mom’s?  You can’t.  Here’s 2Pac with “Dear Mama”.

Skankin’ Saturday

I love this song a lot.  To me, it shows how catchy Topper Headon was at his best.  Great hooks.  Just a great song.  That’s why there’s the Clash, and then there’s every other punk band.  Here’s “Train in Vain”.

Fab Four Friday

Today’s song comes from my favorite Beatles side project, The Traveling Wilburys, featuring George Harrison.  They’re basically the ultimate super group, including Bob Dylan, Tom Petty, Roy Orbison, Jeff Lynne (ELO), and George.  This is “New Blue Moon”.
