|• George Michael – Faith (Aeroplane Remix) – Image this during the final montage in some epic movie? Windows down, baby.|
|• Adele – Someone Like You - Self-proclaimed by the British diva that this may be the greatest song she’ll ever write. It’s pretty incredible, if I do say so myself.|
|• Samantha Murphy – Ring of Fire – This independent artist is making it happen on the next Amazon Kindle commercial. Happy to support the little guy, took me forever to find a free download of this though. Wahh wahh.|
|• Neil Young – On the Beach - This goes out to the guys on the beach behind the camera man asleep from the oxycontin they just took.|
1. KC and the Sunshine Band – Do a Little Dance
This KC song came on my shuffle the other day and blew my mind. Obviously we’ve all heard this song – but I strongly recommend putting it back on your running/party mixes. Instant good times. Stop moving your leg.
2. Coldplay – Life in Technicolor II
A solid Coldplay jam for any occasion – signature transcendentalism with a hint of rock drumming to keep it on my driving mix. Shades on? Shades on.
3. Eric Clapton – Before You Accuse Me (unplugged)
Eric gets reeeeal loose on this acoustic track. A kickoff to his legendary unplugged album and a lyrics that ring true to anyone who loves to be deep in a Judgement Free Zone.
4. Fleetwood Mac – Never Going Back Again
The first of two Fleetwood tracks this week (yes!) that bring about a nostalgia that few bands do. I remember senior year sitting in my room at 2am on a Thursday with my window open and hearing a freshman girl yell “HOLY SHIT! Fuck, everyone stop!” All her friends (getting into a car) stopped. There was a silence…broken by a voice panged by someone so in passionately involved with 12 rum and cokes and a spot in their heart for acoustic love songs that softly stated with eyes closed, “I….fucking….love this song.” It was a special day.
5. Neil Young – Unknown Legend
This is my favorite Neil Young song. Think about what I just said.
6. Fleetwood Mac – Second Hand News
Second FM song brings us back to what it’s all about – getting totally burned and singing a wicked feel good song about it. I love it. America.
