Hoodoo Gurus “I Want You Back”
from Stoneage Romeos (A&M 1983) —I spent a few strange months working at a record store in Belleville back when this record was new, and I played this every single day I was there, I think, while silent MTV videos played on the TV screen.
Jorge Ben “Quem Foi Que Roubou a Sopeira de Porcelana Chinesa Que a Vovo Ganhou da Baronesa”
from Jorge Ben (Universal unk 1969) —It took me half the length of the song just to type the title.
Abdoulaye Diabate “Monzon”
from Bende (Cobalt 2000) —I just eat up stuff like this - the way everything explodes in different rhythmic directions that turn into one big fat groove.
Dwight Yoakam “Rock It All Away”
from 3 Pears (Warner Brothers 2012) —How many songs are there that use that chord progression (you know, the one most famous from "Baba O'Riley" by the Who")?
The Everly Brothers “So How Come (No One Loves Me)”
from Heartaches & Harmonies (Rhino 1994) —Not one of the big hits, but a lively dose of self-pity. "If you're wondering who the loneliest creatures in the world might be, they're the ugly duckling, the black sheep, and me."
The Mavericks “In Another's Arms”
from In Time (The Valory Music Company 2013) N —Raul Malo has the best sense of dynamics - nobody else can hold so much back, because nobody else has the ability to go as big as he does. This cut is beautiful.
Danny Wilson “Nothing Ever Goes to Plan”
from Meet Danny Wilson (Virgin 1987) —One of the things that didn't go according to plan was the way I messed up the beginning of this lovely little song, which a caller says is a cross between Steely Dan & Todd Rundgren. Yeah, I hear that.
Villagers “The Waves”
from Awayland (Domino 2013) N —Allow yourself to be drawn in, and this is extraordinarily compelling.
Doll By Doll “Sleeping Partners”
from Remember (Rhino 1979) —I was your sleeping partner on that night that you got shot.
Nils Lofgren “When You Were Mine”
from Old School (Vision 2011) —It's hard to follow Doll By Doll, but I think this sweet little nostalgic cut by Nils Lofgren did the job.
Joan Armatrading “Single Life”
from Starlight (429 www.429records.com 2012) N —How can I be the only disc jockey on KDHX who's excited by the fact there's a new record by Joan Armatrading. Nobody else has played a single cut from it.
