Hooray, it’s Friday again, even though as an unemployed person it’s Friday every day. Anyway, Friday means my music shuffle where my device selects 10 tunes from my collection and I tell you what they are. And to add to the fun, if you click on the title, you can sing along.
So, let’s rock!
- Don’t Ask Me Why by Billy Joel. From 1980’s Glass Houses, this is vintage Bill.
- Low Down Payment by David Crosby and Graham Nash. This comes from C&N’s 1975 long player Wind On The Water. Lush.
- The Sin by Warren Zevon. The late, great Warren from his 1980 live album Stand In The Fire.
- What’s On My Mind by Kansas. Prog rock from the veteran prog rockers’ record Leftoverture.
- Comin’ Home Baby by Mel Tormé. Back to 1962 for this old classic.
- Let It Bleed by Goat. From 2012’s excellent World Music, enjoy Sweden’s finest in action.
- Going Mobile by The Who. By far the worst track on 1971’s Who’s Next and a useful reminder that Pete Townshend should stick to writing songs and not singing them. Maybe Daltrey said the song was too bad for him to sing?
- Don’t Start Me Talkin’ by the Doobie Brothers. Classic bluesy Doobies here, live at the Wolf Trap.
- South American Getaway by Burt Bacharach. Yes, the Butch Cassidy song. Brilliant.
- Disturbance by The Move. Very early Roy Wood, from 1966, and possibly not peak Move.
That’s all, folks!
