    Friday music fun...I figure there must be fans of the Beatles and Metallica, perhaps even both out there. If you haven't heard of Beatallica yet...

    Find "Sgt. Hetfield's Motorbreath pub band" first...you immediately hear why they're quite funny

    Have been moving stuff around the office basement and listening to Old 97's - Too Far to Care on the iPod. A little cow-punk makes the day go faster...

    On the CD again, tonight: Counting Crows

    I may,
    Take a holiday in Spain
    Leave my wings behind me
    Drink my worries down the drain
    And fly away to somewhere new…....

    We can simply pack our bags and catch a plane to Barcelona
    ‘cause this city is a drag

    Why don't you knock it off with them negative waves?
    Why don't you dig how beautiful it is out here?
    Why don't you say something righteous and hopeful for a change?
    From Kelly's Heroes (1970)


    Are you sure you're not hurt ?
    No. Just some parts wake up faster than others.
    Broke parts take a little longer, though.
    From Electric Horseman (1979)

    I did. Whoa, he looked old! And I never knew he had kids with cerebral palsy. Has always been one of my favorites, though.

    Buffalo Springfield

    Anybody remember Buffalo Springfield? There song "For What It's Worth" became a sort-of anthem for a generation (mine! ).

    Neil Young, Richie Furay, Stephen Stills were the group members. From what I can recall, they were sitting around in a hotel room trying to think up a good name for their band. Outside their window was a construction project, with big earth-moving equipment with the name of the manufacturer, Buffalo-Springfield. Ta da!

    Neil Young's career has been a blast to watch and listen to.

    For the all time greatest Hey Hey, My My check out the movie Human Highway (an underrated and fantasticly funny movie/ testament to Neil's genius) and watch Neil, Boojie Boy, and Devo smoke that tune. That movie is soooo good.

    Esmarine. More post-rock Montreal soundscapes by members of Godspeed! You Black Emperor. This CD didn't catch my ear the first few times I played it, but for some reason it's been in constant rotation this week. Lot's of violin, cello, droning soundscapes.

    I'll be the first to say it. No, I haven't. I'm not fond of disappoinment, after all.....is there a chance the album might be brilliant? Maybe, but the world isn't holding out much hope.

    What can you say about Waters or Gilmour post-Floyd? These were two geniuses that needed to collaborate if ever there were. One without the other is like Gilbert, without Sullivan, Watson without Crick, Abbot without Costello, Stan without Stan. I wish I could say that weren't true but it is.

    People will miss that it once meant something to be Southern or Midwestern. It doesn't mean much now, except for the climate. The question, “Where are you from?” doesn't lead to anything odd or interesting. They live somewhere near a Gap store, and what else do you need to know? - Garrison Keillor

    Found a site last week: Archive.org where they have hundreds of live concerts recorded by a pretty wide variety of artists. I listened to live shows by Mission of Burma, Fugazi, the Mountain Goats, and Matisyahu so far and all have been good quality.

    Also been listening to Whiskey Town, the new Belle and Sebastian album, and some other stuff.

    IRT Bear: Saw Uncle Tupelo in the latest stack of yours - can't go wrong with that

    Still Another Stack

    Here's another stack of CD's that I carried to the office.....

    Ultimate Collection (Brian Setzer Orchestra)
    Live Between Us (Tragically Hip) (Includes "New Orleans Is Sinking")
    A Ghost Is Born (Wilco)
    Moulin Rouge (Soundtrack From Movie)
    Carmina Burana
    Billboard Hits Of 1970 (Collection)
    Live Phish (Phish)
    Bringing Down The Horse (Wallflowers) (Bob Dylan's kid's band)
    Millenium Collection (Dixie Dregs)
    24 Swing Tracks (Benny Goodman, Glenn Miller)
    Very Best (Nat King Cole)
    _____

    Anybody remember an old crooner named John Gary? At one time, Frank Sinatra called John Gary the singer with the perfect voice. John Gary was popular but never made it to the "real big time". He died a few years ago.

    I had forgot all about John Gary. Until the former owner of the distribution center that I now own part of brought me a "Best Of John Gary" CD, the other day. Seems that the former DC owner and John Gary were good friends and he still visits with John Gary's widow a few times a year.

    That CD is on my desk, too.

    More from the Cool dot com column in the Indy Star:
    Deep into songs
    Did you know that the Who's classic "Who Are You?" was written as a desperate man's prayer? Or that "Wild Horses" by the Rolling Stones started out as a song about Keith Richards' newborn son? You'll find more cool tidbits at http://www.songfacts.com/
    It is fun to explore your favorite artist and their songs.
