This week's Top 5 most listened to discs...in no specific order...

The Romantics - In Heat
Jellyfish - Best!
The Kooks - Inside In/Inside Out
Aqualung - Memory Man

...and...

Hey, I Know That Song Vol 4 : "That 70's Edition"

- The latest in a series of "all covers" discs I've been making for friends at work. This one, as you may be able to tell from the title, is all covers of 70's artists. Here's the track listing, for anyone who gives a damn...

The Jayhawks - "Bad Time" (Grand Funk Railroad)
Mathew Sweet - "Magnet & Steel" (Walter Egan)
Foo Fighters - "Baker Street" (Gerry Rafferty)
The Smithereens - "It Don't Come Easy" (Ringo Starr)
Shawn Mullins - "What Is Life" (George Harrison)
Owsley - "Band On The Run" (Paul McCartney)
Toad The Wet Sprocket - "Instant Karma!" (John Lennon)
Smash Mouth - "Why Can't We Be Friends?" (War)
Cake - "I Will Survive" (Gloria Gaynor)
Red Hot Chili Peppers - "Love Rollercoaster" (Ohio Players)
Stereophonics - "Who Are You" (The Who)
The Posies - "Surrender" (Cheap Trick)
Chris Isaak - "I Want You To Want Me" (Cheap Trick)
Dwight Yokham - "Crazy Little Thing Called Love" (Queen)
Def Leppard - "American Girl" (Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers)
Letters To Cleo - "Cruel To Be Kind" (Nick Lowe)
Goo Goo Dolls - "Give A Little Bit" (Supertramp)
Nine Days - "I Love You" (Climax Blues Band)
Fuel - "Goin' To California" (Led Zeppelin)
Catherine Wheel - "Wish You Were Here" (Pink Floyd)
I'm wishing to live longer aided by the supreme healing force of music.
It most definitely overcomes all weaking aspects of the body.
I have felt quite lost and distraught without those wonderful vinyl productions.
I'm convinced it's an addiction, too. I feel just great again.

Dude!! Your list ROCKS!!!!

Jellyfish is a favorite of mine, but you really start uncovering the gems with Matthew Sweet's cover of "Magnet & Steel!" What a great cover!! Lindsey Buckingham makes a great appearance on there. Owsley also kills with that cover of Band on the Run!! Letters to Cleo do such a great job with "Cruel to Be Kind"... they kill on their cover of "I Want You To Want Me" from that same soundtrack - is it "10 Things I Hate About You?"

Cool list!!

Janna,

You get 10,000 cool points for listening to The Producers!! I love that band! I have the first two albums on CD (you probably have the same CD) and I absolutely love it!! You Make The Heat sounds like it was recorded yesterday, much less 20 years ago (or however long it has been - it has been close to twenty if not more!!)

Anyway, cool points for you!!!

Thanks!

Yeah, it is from the 10 Things I Hate About You soundtrack. In fact, I got a lot of the tunes I used from various soundtracks - they're always good for that. A lot of the other stuff I find either comes from full on tribute discs to specific artists, or MOJO magazine tribute CDs.

Almost used Letters To Cleo's take of IWYTWM, but wanted to use their cover of "Cruel..." instead. Same thing with Dwight Yokham's version.

Had, and still have a bunch of choices to pick from for upcoming volumes that I've got in the works, and, I also used a lot of stuff on the earlier mixes I made. My next one is all 80's covers.

BTW - re: your list - I'm a big fan of both OK Go albums, and of course, just about anything that Matthew Sweet does. And I, too was spinning a bit of The Church's "Starfish" this week. I do believe that "Reptile" may just about be my favorite Church song.

It most definitely overcomes all weaking aspects of the body.

Thanks for the points!! Now...where do I cash them in at?!
Yep...same cd, I believe Make The Heat was originally recorded in '82....great music...great band. If you were in or near Atlanta in the early 80's you knew the band "The Producers"....they opened for CT on several occasions. The guys still perform and a friend e-mailed me today and told me that they are playing at a tavern in Atlanta tonight. He also told me that they have a Myspace page.... I hadn't even thought to check for them on there! Here's the link if you want to check them out on there

The Producers
Janna -
I've been looking for a copy of that Producers CD for many years now. The damn thing was in and out of print very quickly, and is fetching big bucks on E-bay/Amazon these days. Great stuff indeed.

You know, for whatever reason, I was just completely oblivious to the fact that yesterday was St. Patrick's day. (And actually for the whole week, for that matter)
Maybe it was the unexpected snow storm we had, but I completely missed it. Shame on me. Should have been cranking old Phil at work all day.
