My Top Music Picks

Rebuilding my fauxPod and loading more music from Windows Media Player and thought I’d share a few of my five starred tunes. When I get some real internet access I’ll add some links.

- Baby I Love You (Just Leave Me The Fuck Alone): The Yayhoos. Heard it on the end credits to an otherwise horror movie called “Slither” and it captured my heart.

- Nighttime: Elk City. Beautiful song. I don’t know who the sultry voiced singer is but this song brings me chicken skin every time.

- 39 Lashes: The Cows. Sounds like a punk band being lashed with guitar strings… still attached to the guitar!

- A History Of Drunks: Melvins. A touching story about true love found via an aborted suicide and attempted murder. Kinda tugs on the strings donit?

- Circle Of Power: Soundgarden. As far as I know its Hiro Yamamoto’s only attempt at singing lead. He almost pulls it off…

- Big Fat Pig: Clutch. A moving combination of funk, rock, religion, nursery rhymes and Frank Zappa.

- Astronomy Domine: Pink Floyd. IMHO PF’s best work was their first and this is their first track. This is the song that showcases the 60s for me. A video from a 1967 British show, the commentator is clueless…

- Fistful Of Amphetamines: Cadillac Hitmen. Southwestern surf rock. I can easily imagine these folks jammin’ in the desert and pissing off the Gila Monsters. (can’t seem to find a link…)

Enough for now… Like I said, I’ll track down some links next time I get some WiFi. I CAN blog from my cellphone, just barely.
