Non-Sequitur alert: a random playlist, as generated tonight during my meditation1. Ignore the goofy formatting and crazy number scheme, I made a typo in the HTML, and didn’t want to go back and redo all the code.
- Jason Isbell– Dress Blues
Sirens of the Ditch
- Americana, sometimes known as alternative country, a tale of being a casualty of war, sleeping in Dress Blues
- Bob Dylan– Stonehenge
TTRH Season 2 – 05 – Days of the Week
- what is the deal with Stonehenge? Bob ponders rocks of all time, and notes that currently there are two Starbucks and and Applebees inside the circle
- Johann Sebastian Bach – Bach: Notenbüchlein Für Anna Magdalena Bach
Bach: Notenbüchlein Für Anna Magdalena Bach – Menuet, BWV Anh. 114- Pieter-Jan Belder
- Ahhh, Bach
- The Velvet Underground– I’m Waiting For The Man
Peel Slowly And See Disc 2
- even after a hundred thousand listens, still love this garage rock tune, especially the occasional cha-ching double-time strum on one of the rhythm guitars
- Barack Obama– White Folks
Dreams from My Father
There are white folks, and then there are ignorant motherfuckers like you…
- Micachu– Eat Your Heart
- meh, some free track from Amazon.com
- Johann Sebastian Bach – Bach Edition, Vol. 5 – Cantatas, Vol. 2 [Disc 4]
Bach: Cantata #98, BWV 98, “Was Gott Tut, Das Ist Wohlgetan” – Was Gott Tut, Das Ist Wohlgetan- Ruth Holton, Sytse Buwalda, Etc.; Piet Jan Leusink: Netherlands Bach Collegium, Holland Boys Choir
- Louvin Brothers, The– There’s A Higher Power
Satan Is Real
- Check the album cover. Nuff said. Actually a great LP.
- Johann Sebastian Bach – Bach Edition, Vol. 4 – Cantatas, Vol. 1 [Disc 3]
Bach: Cantata #97, BWV 97, “In Allen Meinen Taten” – Ihm Hab Ich Mich Ergeben- Ruth Holton, Sytse Buwalda, Etc.; Piet Jan Leusink: Netherlands Bach Collegium, Holland Boys Choir
With a good sustain guitar pedal, this would sound rockin’ translated as an Indie pop song.
- Johann Sebastian Bach – Bach Edition, Vol. 12 – Keyboard Works, Vol. 2 [Disc 12]
Bach: 3-Part Invention #13 In A Minor, BWV 799- Pieter-Jan Belder
Bach friendly meditation tonight. I forgot actually what I was thinking here, I drifted into galactic space
- The Velvet Underground– It Was A Pleasure Then
Peel Slowly And See Disc 2
- I’m lucky that I didn’t have a copy of this Nico rarity2 during my drug-addled youth, such a perfect song to listen to after being up for a few days straight on whatever. Not that I’d know about being up for days on end. That must have been someone else. Sounds like Nico singing, John Cale on squeaky viola, and Lou Reed on electric guitar, as far as I can tell.
- Iggy Pop– Repo Man
- Iggy sounds like a thug here on the title track to the Repo Man soundtrack, love it. Bought a copy of this CD, used, this year, replacing my original vinyl version. Such memories invoked, of being a angsty-teen, of wondering what life would be like as a punk-rocker, etc. etc. I’m looking for the joke with a microscope!
Circle Jerks– Coup D’Etat
“Repo MAN – Original Motion Picture Soundtrack” (REPO MAN – Original Motion Picture Soundtrack, Iggy Pop, Black Flag, Suicidal Tendencies, The Plugz, Juicy Bananas, The Circle Jerks, Burning Sensations, Fear, harry dean stanton, emilio estevez, punk rock, art punk, 80’s) (michael nesmith)
I even raised and shook my fist during the chorus of this song: Coup D’Etat!
- Stephan Smith– All Together Now
Now’s the Time
- No idea where this song came from, but it isn’t bad. The singer has a slight lisp, but the acoustic guitar work is nice, and the lyrics are poignant and pointed enough to notice, about world unity. I’ll have to look for more music by this guy.
- Dubliners, The– Molly Malone
Seven Drunken Nights
- This even goes further back: I remember learning this song in Mrs. Sullivans’ Fifth Grade class, South River, Ontario. I recall singing enthusiastically, in our children’s tenor voices.
- Barack Obama– Buy Your Own Damn Fries
Dreams from My Father (Disc 2)
