Song of the Week 2/24/12

The Shins - "Simple Song"

I'm really looking forward to this new Shins album. "Simple Song" is my favorite song that James Mercer has done since "So Says I." I hope the rest of Port of Morrow holds up to this track.

Song of the Week 2/17/12

Suzanne Vega featuring Joe Jackson - "Left of Center"

One thing I love about doing the RT 20 Podcast is when guests bring up songs that have slipped through the cracks in my brain. Jason Fry did just that with this song from Pretty in Pink. I remember playing it in college, but somehow never had a copy of the song in my own collection. I, of course, have rectfied that now.

Yeah, Ms. Vega was attractive back then. (And still was when I interviewed her a few years ago.)

Song of the Week 2/10/12

Scorpions - "Rock You Like a Hurricane"

Damn, this is such a flithy song. I had no idea until Bunnie England opened with it last night. Who knew Germans were so dirty?
