Just heard the sad news about the passing of John Prine this evening from complications from Covid19. Prine was one of those artists that I knew of and appreciated the songs of his that I had heard, but I can’t say I knew more than a fraction of his work (that will change). I remember really liking his 1991 album The Missing Years. Here’s my favorite song from that album. All The Best.
Another great hook, hilarious lyrics. It got alot of play on MTV because of the video
Just heard the devastating news that Adam Schlesinger, co-founder of Fountains of Wayne, one of my favorite power pop bands, has died of COVID19 complications. While Stacy’s Mom was their biggest hit, this was my favorite song of theirs. Their brilliant combination of huge power pop riffs and witty lyrics will be sorely missed. Sending my thoughts to his family, friends and fans worldwide.
How many more will we lose?
HT to Aphoristical for the heads up.
The Revivalists recently did a mini album, remixing songs from their last full length release at the legendary muscle Shoals studios in Alabama. An added bonus was this cover.
first new stuff in a long time from the Dixie chicks. Pretty catchy
I had forgotten how interesting this band was. Bought this album way back. Great song
Just beginning to get into this band. So far I’m thinking a little bit of a Avett Brothers meets the Grateful Dead kind of vibe. Their most recent album is getting some play on the satellite radio station I listen to on Sirius. Here’s a live performance of one of the songs I really like.
Apparently this artist has been a bit of a cult favorite for a while and this was my introduction to him. Heard a review on NPR while I was driving my granddaughter around at 7 o’clock in the morning to get her to sleep. So far I think it’s brilliant
These guys have been a round for a while. They had a semi hit long ways back called Popular. Heard about their new album on NPR. I’ve listen to about half the album so far. Really liking it.
It’s been a little while since I’ve highlighted the Rolling Stones.
