In The Air Tonight by Phil Collins

tcr! · 3 days ago

Peeps, here’s your so-you-can-wipe-off-that-grin Monday afternoon jam to continue with the relationships are hard theme.

The interesting thing for me about this song is that when I was a kid going to the school skating parties, the boys and girls would always skate together like this was a couples song.

“I’ve been waiting for this moment for all my life” — something magical was about to happen for them guys and girls skating out there in the dark.

But then I was always confused about Collins letting someone drown. It wasn’t until years later that I learned that’s this definitely isn’t a love song. It’s another of my favorites for sure. It’s the definition of marriage macabre.

Musically, the drums are center stage and who can resist their 3:15 mark? You know you love it.

Suspicious Minds by Elvis Presley

tcr! · 3 days ago

Peeps, here’s your because-i-love-you-too-much Monday jam.

I feel like I’m too cool to listen to Elvis but this song’s still one of my top 20 faves. He totally owns this song, too.

I’d forgotten about it for years until it showed up on the Blade Runner 2049 soundtrack.

How Soon Is Now? by The Smiths

tcr! · 4 days ago

Peeps, here’s your i-go-about-things-the-wrong-way Sunday jam.

Morrissey always had the best dance moves. And the right hair. Even if all his hope was gone.

Bonus points: Johnny Marr played guitar on The The’s Mind Bomb. Best disc in their catalog as far as I’m concerned.

Peeps, here’s your Tuesday late 2000 jam. But wait, there’s a whole YouTube playlist for ya. I went down a rabbit hole and couldn’t post just one. Just let them play one after another.

Track listing:

  1. Paper Planes by M.I.A. (2007)
  2. Sex on Fire by Kings Of Leon (2008)
  3. Kids by MGMT (2008)
  4. L.E.S Artistes by Santigold (2008)
  5. Heads Will Roll by Yeah Yeah Yeahs (2009)
  6. Somebody That I Used To Know by Gotye (2011)
  7. Tongue Tied by Grouplove (2011)

Look at that. I just made you guys a mix tape. And yes, I skipped 2010 but not on purpose.

Stolen Dance by Milky Chance

tcr! · Jan 8, 2018 at 10:04 am

Peeps, here’s your bring-it-on-the-floor jam to get this work week started. Clemens Rehbein looks a little hipster but it’s still good.

He got the looks of my brother, Shaun, while he got the singer-song-writer feel of my brother, Scott.

Ho Hey by The Lumineers

tcr! · Jan 5, 2018 at 11:21 am

Peeps, here’s your you-belong-to-me Friday jam.

It took me a long time before I could listen to The Lumineers again. Same goes for Mumford & Sons.

But.. “HEY. I been sleeping in my bed.”

Speaking of REO Speedwagon

tcr! · Jan 4, 2018 at 7:14 am

And then there was that one time (yesterday) that I was thinking pretty much everyone I meet and know in the here and now aren’t dicks. It’s a big shift in my perspective.

When I was younger I used to believe that most people were assholes but then as I was thinking yesterday, I realized my thoughts had changed. For the better. More than likely I just remembered the assholes, too, that they made more of an impression on me. Because they were obnoxious. And I was real good at that whole focusing on the negative instead of the positive thing. Over and over again.

Your 90s heroes, Bush, sang “I’m addicted to bullshit” way back when. I can relate to that. “Addicted” is a strong word but bullshit is what I knew.

Anyways, along the same lines, we find what we’re looking for and having a clearer mind at the moment, I can honestly say that the people I encounter now are decent, caring human beings. Doing their best to make the world a better place. Doing more than they have to in life.

Not that they go full-tilt, Mother Teresa kinda shit, but they do just a little bit more than required. Just a little bump extra. And that’s what makes all the difference in people’s lives. Going full-tilt can burn me out. It’s better if I just do a little bit more each day.

In the same song Bush also sang “it’s all the little things that kill.” But wait, the little things can make the world pretty awesome as well.

Another big part to all of this is the people I hang out with. Not too many unsavory types these days. Regardless of what the magnet says, “like” can and also attract “like.”

I’m grateful for my friends, you guys. Just knowing all of you makes me a better person.

And to quote that same song one final time, “bigger you give, bigger you get.”

I wanna be big today and all of you help me get there. Watching you give, inspires me to.

Peeps, here’s your stick-them-onto-everything Tuesday jam.

My favorite part is when the blonde guy puts on the lipstick.

Body Movin’ by Beastie Boys

While checking the Internets on this last day of 2017, Alexa decided to play some Beastie Boys to go with my morning coffee. So peeps without further ado, here’s your up-rockin-electro-shocking jam for today.

They still got some of the best videos.

Deceived by Red Dragon Cartel

tcr! · Dec 20, 2017 at 3:02 pm

Good to see that Jake E. Lee is still busting out the jams.

Pay no mind to the front man’s performance. His vocals work but he’s still in the 80s. Maybe fresh from the carnival break room.
