Tom Morello is as cool as always. Not a big fan of Rage Against the Machine, but some of their stuff is pretty good, this included. Turn it up, kind sir.

A newfound favorite of mine, unfortunately not available on Spotify at the moment. Shame:

Fixing a hole where the rain gets in during my spare time.

Fixing a hole in the ocean if I'm daring enough.

Doesn't really stop my wandering mind.

I just really like repairing stuff

Sounded like fairly standard mid '70s jazz-funk fusion...it didn't excite me very much overall, or make me wanna dance, really, but I liked the alto solo. Turn it up a bit.

Depends on my mood for the Surfers so leave the volume where it's at. 

What's the buzz, tell me what's happening

Haha sorry, I second-guessed myself and changed it. You were too fast for me! 

Do you want to comment on the NoMeansNo track as well, before someone rates Funkadelic?

Anyways, it's been a week, so turn Funkadelic up, obviously. But only a little, because I would've preferred a real drummer like Jerome Brailey or Tyrone Lampkin to the throwaway battery-operated rhythm track employed here. (I'd bet Prince was listening closely to this track...) 

Warning: naughty words!

One day, a tape-op got a tape on backwards, he went to play it, and it was all "Neeeradno-undowarrroom" and it was "Wow! Sounds Indian!"

Turn up Big Star, especially if you have no Badfinger around. Didn't know there was a six minute version of this.

Keep it where it is. Not much to say, perfectly pleasant and extremely repetitive.

sdfmklgfmkamdakfmd of course turn up "The Lady Don't Mind"!!! beatlemaniacs_02_gifbeatlemaniacs_02_gif The percussive elements and quintessential Talked Heads-ness, the overall energy that the song brings is wonderful-- complete with those lyrics and David Byrne just being David Byrne I love it *chef's kiss* 

Who knows, who knows what she's thinkin'? 

 

Anyhoo, here we go:

 

Don't worry-- this song choice does not express any personal feelings. I'm completely content right now in my life and find no reason to end it paul-mccartney-thumb_gifpaul-mccartney-thumb_gif

It's a great single, yeah! Inescapable in 1974, as old guys like DL and myself would remember. The rhythm box and keyboard drone is kinda Krautrockish.
  

Turn Elton up - I feel like it could be annoying if I played that too much, but the usual Bernie wit and Elton tunefulness are undeniable.

Actually, Elton's singing and bluesy melodicism and overall 1973-ness kinda reminds me of this guy sometimes. Jim Croce: Turn him up, or down.

Turn it up. Croce was a big part of my childhood. My mom had a thing for guys with cheesy moustaches.

Some 90s Prince here.

How can I turn down some good Prince music. Fantastic vocals as always, and the guitar and drum work is splendid. Turn it up kind sir.

My selection: "Sweet Thing" - Van Morrison
