Siria’s 2:05 pm June Playlist
Gray and gloomy is my least favorite backdrop unless it’s leading into dark thundery-lightning striking-full on rainstorms…and I’m safe at home. I can only take about two days max of that, I’m glad I got to escape it at least a couple of times this month.
If I didn’t know any better, I’d think Courtney Love had finally wrangled some deal with one of the remaining big-name studios and we are all on the set of an early 90’s Kurt Cobain biopic where they’ve somehow managed to re-create Seattle weather in Southern California. If someone finds the secret switch controlling this please completely disactivate or rig it so both the on/off only have one effect…sunshine during the day.
With that said, I blame the weather for this playlist.
Deftones – “Knife Party” (White Pony)
Johnny Marr and the Healers – “Another Day” (Boomslang)
If I had to pick between Marr and Morrissey, I’d pick Marr everytime. Yeah, yeah…let the stoning begin.
The Dandy Warhols – “Smoke It” (Odditorium Or Warlords Of Mars)
The Poor Excuses – “I’ll Do It”
Technically, I’m cheating by putting this on my list as I didn’t really listen to them at 2:05 pm…After listening to that Dandy Warhols’ song it made me think of LA based band The Poor Excuses. That made me go listen to them and that in turn made me wonder how they’re doing. Poor Excuses, how are you doing?
Sufjan Stevens – “Casimir Pulaski Day” (Come on Feel The) Illinoise
The Weeks – “Buttons” (Comeback Cadillac)
This Mississippi-based band’s members are all under 20 years old. Wonder if they’re tired of all of the Kings of Leon comparisons? Curious to see what they’ll sound like when they finally find their own true sound. I’m rooting for them.
Mint – “The Winter of 1985″ (Magnetism)
Meatloaf - “Rock n’ Roll Dreams Come True” (Box of Gold)
I’m not sure how Meatloaf snuck into my playlist?… but yes “Rock ‘n’ Roll Dreams” do still come true, even if it’s just temporarily.
ELO/The Move – “Do Ya”
I think I squealed when I heard the cowbell kick in I love Jeff Lynne’s vocals. More cowbell please!
Ace Frehley’s cover on Trouble Walkin’ is cool too though– in that big drums, big guitar kinda way and his version’s video has all of the perfect 80’s cheesiness (Do ya Do ya want the Ace?!), but sadly no cowbell. See for yourself:
Nuclear Assault – “Defiled Innocence” (Third World Genocide)
I don’t like all Thrash Metal, but I do like Nuclear Assault.
The Magic Magicians – “Bored Ticket Taker”
Finally a band from the area of gloomy weather and green green grass (Seattle). Confession: I hate band names that use the word Magic and they do it twice (all in one bandname!), but I do like this song.
David Bowie – “87 and Cry” (Never Let me Down)
I had not heard this song in forever, love this song.
Urge Overkill – “God Flinstone” (Americruiser/Jesus Urge Superstar)
Most people are most familiar with Urge Overkill for their cover of Neil Diamond’s “Girl, You’ll Be a Woman Soon” from it’s placement on Pulp Fiction
Rilo Kiley – “Portions for Foxes” (More Adventurous)
This is one of those songs I can pull out time after time and I don’t get sick of. It’s probably that demanding “C’mere!” that gets me :).
Chris Isaak – “Solitary Man” (San Francisco Days)
Hmmm…apparently when the weather is gloomy I like to listen to Neil Diamond Covers? This is my favorite Neil Diamond song actually.
