Time zone: central


The Beatles “Ob-La-Di, Ob-La-Da”
from The Beatles (Apple 2009) —There are those who say this song is too light for rock'n'roll - but gee whillikers, it makes me feel so good every time I hear it.


Rod Stewart “Seems Like a Long Time”
from Every Picture Tells A Story (Mercury 1971) —My desert island disc - for 41 years, I've reveled in its perfection.


Chuck Prophet “Museum of Broken Hearts”
from Temple Beautiful (Yep Roc 2012) N  —A typically great song from Mr. Prophet.


Lou Reed “Satellite of Love”
from Transformer (RCA Records 1972) —The satellite's gone up to the sky, things like that drive me out of my mind.


The Wallflowers “First One in the Car”
from Glad All Over (Columbia 2012) N  —Jakob Dylan is in firm control here. Lots of really strong songs.


The Pretenders “Popstar”
from Viva el Amor! (Warner Brothers 1999) —I'd kind of forgotten this record, but wow! They were rocking on this cut.


Guided By Voices “No Transmission”
from Class Clown Spots a UFO (Guided By Voices Inc. 2012) N  —A short slab of majestic power.


The Coctails “Talkin' About My Baby”
from Early Hi-Ball Years (Carrot Top 1992) —Garage rock to the point of absurdity.


Neil Young & Crazy Horse “Travel On”
from Americana (Reprise 2012) N  —It took a while, but eventually I decided to fully embrace this record. Putting Crazy Horse to work on folk songs turns out to be brilliant.


The Byrds “Wild Mountain Thyme”
from Fifth Dimension (Columbia 1966) —An earlier example of folk and rock fused together.


Martin Carthy “Lovely Joan”
from The Collection (Topic 1993) —I love the guitar and accordion interplay here.


Chris Smither “All We Need to Know”
from Hundred Dollar Valentine (Signature Sounds www.signaturesounds.com 2012) N  —One of Smither's best songs on an album of great ones.


Gretchen Peters “Dark Angel”
from Hello Cruel World (Proper 2012) N  —Beautiful song with a Rodney Crowell guest appearance.


Alabama Shakes “Boys & Girls” (ATO www.atorecords.com 2012) N  —How slow can they go?


The Minutemen “Political Song For Michael Jackson to Sing”
from Double Nickels on the Dime (SST 1984) —I hear this and see D. Boon jumping around on stage as thrilled to play music as anybody I've ever seen.


Meredith Monk “Walking Song”
from The Big Lebowski Soundtrack (Mercury 1998) —Someday I need to actually see this movie that so many of my friends love.


Chick Corea & Gary Burton “My Ship”
from Hot House (Concord Jazz 2012) N  —Put these two guys in the same room, and you will have something breathtaking almost every time.


Talking Heads “Girlfriend Is Better”
from Speaking In Tongues (sire 1983) —Somehow this song always brings a smile to my face - that stuttering, elastic bassline, those squiggling synth sounds, and the general sense of oddity from David Byrne.


The Isley Brothers “Footsteps In the Dark, Pts. 1 & 2”
from The Isley Brothers Story Vol. 2: The T-Neck Years 1969-1985 (Rhino 1991) —The source music for Ice Cube's "It Was a Good Day."


Donald Fagen “Slinky Thing”
from Sunken Condos (Reprise 2012) N  —Song stopped partway through.


The Soul Children “I'll Be the Other Woman”
from Stax 50 - A 50th Anniversary Celebration (stax 2007) —Cheating seems so complicated.


Ben E. King “That's When It Hurts”
from Anthology (Rhino 1993) —What a singer!


Booker T. Jones “Knockin' On Heaven's Door”
from How Many Roads: Black America Sings Bob Dylan (Ace 2010) —I don't have liner notes to tell me who's singing this, but he's great.


Garland Jeffreys “Ghost of a Chance”
from Escape Artist (Cherry Red 1981) —That record Jeffreys did backed by the Rumour.


Graham Parker and the Rumour “A Lie Gets Halfway 'Round the World”
from Three Chords Good (Primary Wave 2012) N  —And now the Rumour have reunited with their first employer!


Southside Johnny & the Asbury Jukes “Next to You”
from 1978: Live in Boston (Acadia 1978) —For a few years there, these guys were as great as all the more famous bands.


Magazine “Boredom”
from The Complete John Peel Sessions (Virgin 2008) —Howard Devoto was originally in the Buzzcocks, and this was a song he did there. The revamped version for Magazine is cool, too, and only found on this album.


The Vibrators “Baby Baby”
from Pure Mania (CBS 1977) —These guys were older than the punk rockers, but they made a darned convincing punk record themselves.


The Cramps “Don't Eat Stuff Off the Sidewalk”
from Psychedelic Jungle (I.R.S. 1981) —Sage advice from Lux Interior. You don't need it, so don't eat it.


Slade “Leave Them Girls Alone”
from B-Sides (Salvo 2007) —Even their b-sides rocked hard.


Joe Ely “All Just to Get to You”
from Letter to Laredo (MCA 1995) —Playing tomorrow night, Oct. 27, at Off Broadway.


Bonnie Raitt “Down to You”
from Slipstream (Redwing Records 2012) N  —A pretty darn good Stones pastiche.

from Heart Trouble (CMH www.cmhrecords.com 2003) —Better than either of her last two records.


Tanya Tucker “Pride of Franklin County”
from Greatest Hits (MCA 1979) —He probably should have just stayed where he knew everybody.


Justin Townes Earle “Move Over Mama”
from Harlem River Blues (Bloodshot www.bloodshotrecords.com 2010) —Nice little rockabilly number.


Andy Friedman “Quiet Blues”
from Laserbeams and Dreams (City Salvage 2011) —Nothin' makes a sound, listen what it sings to me, quiet blues 4 minutes and 33. Best John Cage reference by any singer/songwriter.


Piano Red “Doctor Feelgood”
from The Lost Atlanta Tapes (Landslide 2010) —I feel good every time I hear this.


Robert Cray “I'll Always Remember You”
from Nothin But Love (Provogue 2012) N  —What a powerful sound Cray and his band gets with horns added.


Roy Eldridge & Dizzy Gillespie “Trumpet Blues”
from Roy & Diz (Verve www.vervemusicgroup.com 1954) —It was a meeting of the old school with the new, as if Justin Bieber teamed with Justin Timberlake.


Thelma Cooper “Talk To Me Daddy” (Flyright 2000) —Ending with a bit of stockholm syndrome blues, sexy except for that verse about the bruised arm.
