Song Of The Day
Each day, as long as my mind is functioning and I have access to my computer, I'm going to post my song for the day or artist for the day, if I can't single it down to one song only. I'm aware all the time how important music is to me. I'm never without it. It motivates me, soothes me, assuages my anger, my guilt, enhances my love, my emotions, gives words to my feelings. I'd sooner lose my sight than my hearing if I ever had to choose.
Certain songs stick with me for an entire day. I wake up singing them. And if I don't, I put my earphones in my ear, my ipod's always set to random, and I listen to the things I love the most.
Please, by all means, post your song of the day if you wish. But please just keep it to one song or one artist per day. Thanks.
SONG OF THE DAY:
What I'll Remember Most, by Over the Rhine.

Anarchy in the U.K. - The Sex Pistols. Because I'm just feeling defiant today!

I woke up this morning with Trey Anastasio's song, "Alive Again" playing in my head. It's a song about the summer. I think it may have been inspired by the intensity of my 5 hour editing session last night. Good stuff.

Citizen Cope, artist.
Three songs - Salvation, Back Together and Holdin' On.
It's that kind of a day.

Tom Waits is a genius. Frank Zappa lives on...
Today: Queen of the Underworld, Jesse Malin from The Fine Art of Self Destruction

Today was a tough one. It was a toss up, but I have to play by the rules since I laid them down. The song I almost picked (am I cheating?) was Ray Lamontagne's Empty.
The Song of the day is Alison Kraus and Union Station's Gravity from Lonely Runs Both Ways.

Ah Tom Waits, the guy who sings like he's snockered. I like his acting better, I have to say.
The Song of the Day is "Dancing with Myself" by Billy Idol, while shipping all the way back to daughter's school with the evil and insidious trumpet we forgot for Band class.

Amos Lee - Shout Out Loud
What an uplifting song, I love Amos' vocal talent and gospel unfluence... everyone should own both Amos Lee albums... it's the law.

I turned you on to him, didn't I?
I saw him last year in a very small venue. He was great.

You did... I ordered his debut on your word and it was the best album that year by far... short of Ray Lamontagne's Trouble.

I told you about Ray too! I'm batting 100.

Technically, Gary, that'd be batting 1000, but who's counting? Any major leaguer would be jealous, regardless.
I'm into Phish's December 11, 1997 live cover of the Talking Head's "Psycho Killer." When you're talking about the goddess of dreams concerning a revelation of the major antagonist of a story (really IS a Psycho Killer), "Qu'est que c'est?" just seems to fit.
