Friday Music – May 29

New Music

Dinosaur Jr. – Bug – This is more music that came out of my newfound interest in the 1980’s.  Freak Scene is a fantastic track and my favorite of the album.  I got this a while ago, but I’ve been a little tardy in really giving it a chance in the CD player, so I’ll have to make an effort.  Overall, I would say I like Dinosaur Jr’s sound, you can see where it leads into a lot of the early 90’s rock music that I grew up on.

Random 10 Songs

Your Touch – Black Keys – Magic Potion
Chop Suey – System of a Down – Toxicity
Monkey Gone to Heaven – Pixies – Doolittle
The Mountain – Heartless Bastards – The Mountain
For All the Cows – Foo Fighters – Foo Fighters
Suck – Nine Inch Nails – Broken
Powderfinger – Neil Young & Crazy Horse – Rust Never Sleeps
Dancing Days – Led Zeppelin – How the West Was Won
Smack My Bitch Up – Prodigy – Fat of the Land
Velvet Pants – Propellerheads – Decksanddrumsandrockandroll

Let’s see, we’ve got some NIN, some 80’s stuff and a dash of Zeppelin and techno.  I’d call that a pretty solid Big Mak music list.

Random 10 Story – maybe later today – I don’t have one ready right now.

    “Freak Scene” is the coolest song on that record, and maybe Dino Jr’s finest moment. I really like “Post”, too.

    • I guess Neil Young and The Clash are the bands of this friday.

      I’ve listened to a bit of Spoon over the past few weeks, it’s pretty good, maybe it’ll make an appearance at the top of a music post soon.

  2. Rage Against The Machine – “Wake Up” Rage Against The Machine
    Panic! At The Disco – “I Constantly Thank God for Esteban” A Fever You Can’t Sweat Out
    The Pogues – “London Girl” The Very Best of The Pogues
    Eric Clapton – “Wonderful Tonight” Time Pieces
    Feist – “How My Heart Behaves” The Reminder
    Velvet Revolver – “You Got No Right” Contraband
    The Clash – “Spanish Bombs” London Calling
    Old 97’s – “King Of All The World” Satellite Rides
    Gorillaz – “Feel Good Inc.” Demon Days
    Coconut Records – “Wires” Davy

    Chop Suey is a good song. I can’t hear Smack My Bitch Up without thinking of my friend Sara, a 5’2″ 95lb white girl, dancing her ass off. It’s a great visual.

    How are you finding the new Heartless Bastards? I got it from Amazon, and I’m enjoying it.

  3. Rage’s self-titled album may have been my favorite album for a solid 6 or 7 years. Still a classic.

    The Heartless Bastards album is great. I have the two albums All This Time and The Mountain on one playlist and I just have that on repeat for most of the day.

  4. Sometimes I don’t thrill you
    Sometimes I think I’ll kill you
    Just don’t let me fuck up will you
    cause when I need a friend its still you

    What a mess

    One of my.favorite.lyrics.evah.

    Sorry no Clash or Neil but lots of 80s.

  5. Woke up at 5:15 this morning, and although I couldn’t get back to sleep for those final 45 minutes of shut-eye, I did enjoy listening to a pair of owls on the top of the house across the street discuss all the rain we’ve been having lately…

    “The Love Affair [Final Version]” – Roger Eno, “Music of Neglected English Composers”
    “This Time the Dream’s on Me” – Harold Arlen, “Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil soundtrack”
    “Quebec” – Geoff Downes, “World Service”
    “A Cry for Everyone” – Gentle Giant, “Octopus”
    “Lost and Found” – Roger Eno, “The Night Garden”
    “Go Forward” – Lisa Gerrard, “Whale Rider soundtrack”
    “Tales of a Damson Knight” – National Health, “Complete”
    “Leonard and Natalie” – David Julyan, “Memento soundtrack”
    “Livin’ for You” – Boston, “Greatest Hits”
    “Go” – Asia, “Astra”

    No bonus this week; Roger Eno got enough airplay this time around.

    • Boston, Asia, and Kansas are all the same band to me. I’m sure they aren’t, but in my head I can’t differentiate them at all.
