Songs You're Listening To

Sun Jan 24, 2010 3:35 am

I'm kinda out of the "album" thing these days, get more joy out of recontextualising songs through hearing them randomly juxtaposed. So, what songs are you all listening to at the moment?

The slate for me in the last half hour or so was:
Let's Spend The Night Together (Live) - David Bowie
Lightnin' - Sonic Youth
Thinkin' 'Bout You Baby - Sharon Marie
Glitter Years - Bangles
I'm Gonna Be A Teenage Idol - Elton John
World Of Dreams - The Cake
What's A Girl Supposed To Do - Lesley Gore
Calico Lady - Poco
The Levee's Gonna Break - Bob Dylan

How bout you?

I've been checking out YouTube and stumbled across this little ditty. Elvis would have rocked it had he recorded it in '75 or so.

Speaking of The Stones, I just gave their incredible, pulsating, rockin' 1963 cover of "I Wanna Be Your Man" a spin a few minutes ago.

Hell yeah! Brian Jones' slide solo tears my head right off. 'Course, in some ways, it ain't a cover, it was finished for them and they did it first. But ya know that, just making convo.
