Buddy Holly

This is a classic track from Weezer‘s debut album. I remember Weezer being kind of underrated when they first hit in the early 1990s. I think a lot of the music world was worshipping at the altar of grunge, and considered Weezer to be kind of lightweight. I always thought they were good, and over time, I have been proven […]

Cosmic Slop

This is a classic track from Funkadelic, which is pretty much the same band as Parliament, but with a different name for legal reasons (I think). This video was shot in Central Park and Times Square in 1973 (check out the billboard adverts!). Looking at it now, it’s obvious that these cats were very into drugs, but I remember being […]

Hit

Hey People! A small change you should know about if you’ve bookmarked or linked to any of the Songs Of The Day, read more here. So much for getting back on a regular schedule. I’m really going to get back to it this week. Really. From the Holy Shit, I Can’t Believe This Is 20 Years Old file comes The […]

I’m Alright

Looking forward to a good Saturday, so here’s some more feel good shit. Most people know this song from the movie, Caddyshack, so I’m not going to bother talking about that here. I searched YouTube thinking I would find some clips of that gopher fucking up the golf course, and there is that, but I was so staggered by the […]

It Hasn’t Happened Yet

This is more a spoken word track than a song, but I love it nonetheless. From William Shatner‘s 2004 album Has Been, produced by Ben Folds (who also plays the piano here), it’s a melancholy mediation on aging, success, and personal satisfaction (or lack thereof). Seems to be running theme here lately, huh? The musical arrangement is hauntingly beautiful, and […]

About A Girl

First off, let me say right up front that I am not a huge Nirvana fan. For some of you reading, that statement might seem like blasphemy. I don’t dislike their music; if I did, I wouldn’t post their shit here. I enjoy it, I  just didn’t go totally over the moon like everyone else seemed to when they burst […]

High Lonesome

Just got done watching a Smokey and The Bandit double feature on CMT and realized that I haven’t really put any country music up. I don’t really have anything against country, but being from New York City, it doesn’t spring to mind that often. This song is the first single from Australian born Jedd Hughes solo album, Transcontinental. Lyrically, it’s […]
