Listener comments!

  Thu. 6/26/08 3:04pm Foreign Listener K:

Verily, we are naught but pitchers with ears waiting to be filled, as our vessel sails in.
  Thu. 6/26/08 3:05pm sugarwolf:

yay Monica!
  Thu. 6/26/08 3:07pm Chunky A:

Yo bro
  Thu. 6/26/08 3:11pm north guinea hills:

damn monica, awesome set. did i ever tell you that you were the first wfmu dj i listened to when i was in g-ville fl back when wfmu had a tinny stream?.... god, it was literally a decade ago.....

two years later i moved here... thanks!!!!
  Thu. 6/26/08 3:25pm Foreign_listener_K:

Not to be pushy about devotion, but Monica was the first WFMU DJ I ever heard - on a 33.6 modem. Playing whale music.

I've been hooked since.
  Thu. 6/26/08 3:27pm Sean Daily:

Liking this Noise Ramones, Monica.
  Thu. 6/26/08 3:30pm jeanli:

yes to the noise ramones
yes to monica
yes
  Thu. 6/26/08 3:31pm monica:

hi there folks! thanks so much for checking in. foreigner listener k and north guinea hills, you're killin' me with fond memories. hope everyone's have a swell week..
  Thu. 6/26/08 3:34pm HotRod:

Lovely sounds!
  Thu. 6/26/08 3:36pm north guinea hills:

hmmmm..., maybe it was '99, that would have been about the time the lonesome organst came out... i still remembering listening to you at my office at my first job out of college at 9pm by myself...... and remembering, "damn, i clear crowds when i play this shit!"
  Thu. 6/26/08 4:06pm Foreign Listener K:

Who doesn't want to listen to hippie whale music? My kids loved it, just like they did the Muslim Gauze which was also a part of the set.

We are talking the freeform Godhead here. But then, I'm spoiled - I found Monica after Janet, the last vestige of freeform at a WHFS successor, disappeared from the ether.

Freeform and a DJ with fantastic taste? - paradise on earth.

And for those who think freeform is freeloading - you do contribute to WFMU, right? Right?

Amen.
  Thu. 6/26/08 4:09pm Scott Blake:

MORE! Marching Band. I turned my little computer speakers up as loud as possible for Marching Band "Drill". Please play more of that CD.
  Thu. 6/26/08 4:10pm north guinea hills:

i contribute more then i can afford. still nothing but ramen and coor's lite...(and no substances) until at least august. my student loan creditors wish i would sacrifice as much....
  Thu. 6/26/08 4:12pm sugarwolf:

I liked the Becoming Roxy Music book. And I found For Your Pleausre on used vinyl last month, yay yay yay.

I wish I had Bryan Ferry dreams!
  Thu. 6/26/08 4:14pm north guinea hills:

but i got 2 awesome wfmu cd comps that my friends aleady copied for me....

sucker.... that's me!!! jejejeje
  Thu. 6/26/08 4:15pm Foreign Listener K:

No, not coor's lite - really. Either buy some real beer, or spend the money on something worthwhile - bud comes to mind, and not the kind proudly brewed with rice.

I mean, the Belgians brew beer with cherries, but really, do they know what they are trying to acquire?
  Thu. 6/26/08 4:19pm Dead Corporate Eyes:

everyone wants a good buzz
  Thu. 6/26/08 4:19pm monica:

so y'all at the snack machine right about now or what? thanks for the freeform ups Listener K, more marching band to came Blake, Hey Hot Rod, whattup? thanks lovely jeanli, sean d, sugarwolf, chunky A
  Thu. 6/26/08 4:22pm jonathan:

is that really a rubber band?
  Thu. 6/26/08 4:26pm Swami:

This song has made me weep copiously since I was a lad.
  Thu. 6/26/08 4:28pm Parq:

What a nifty version of P(TMD)! Sort of makes me picture little 6-year-old surfer dudes. Beatniks, maybe.
  Thu. 6/26/08 4:30pm north guinea hills:

holy shit, i used side B from tusk to help me get over a breakup 7 years ago... i sense have used the "humming part" of this track for a sample of a minimal techno track, a l a herbert style. tusk, i cry every time.
  Thu. 6/26/08 4:31pm north guinea hills:

THANK YOU FOR THE MAC!!!!!!
  Thu. 6/26/08 4:33pm HotRod:

YOU'RE WHAT'S UP, MONICA!
  Thu. 6/26/08 4:35pm Dead Corporate Eyes:

oh my god, is this Scarlett Johanssen?
  Thu. 6/26/08 4:35pm phat:

good show today.

Hits the spot.
  Thu. 6/26/08 4:36pm Parq:

Oh dang, you beat me to it. One of my all-time tearjerkers is Waits's "Kentucky Avenue", but here you've already played a Waits song. I also get sentimental about any version (including the original) of "Time After Time".
  Thu. 6/26/08 4:36pm Negator:

Three sad cry songs:
I thought-Brian Ferry
Strange Fruit-Billie Holiday
Summer Lies-Magnetic Fields
I just wasn't made for these times-Beach Boys
Crown of Love-Arcade Fire
Ok so I thought of more..... Great show Monica!
  Thu. 6/26/08 4:37pm Don Pubah:

Two tear-jerkers for me....Wilco's "We're Just Friends" and Sinatra singing "September Song."

Good to have you back, Monica!
  Thu. 6/26/08 4:37pm Listener David:

Bruddah Iz's version of Somewhere over the Rainbow
  Thu. 6/26/08 4:38pm phat:

Parg, ditto on the "Time After Time"
  Thu. 6/26/08 4:40pm Droll:

One of the sweetest songs/performances I've heard is Sarah, by Ween (on Pure Guava). It's 2:11 of impossibly beautiful music for them.
Maybe I'm Amazed (McCartney) also Beatle-Cheese that works on me every time.
  Thu. 6/26/08 4:41pm swami:

Waaaaaah! Why?! Waaaaaahhhhh!
  Thu. 6/26/08 4:42pm Parq:

DCE, if that was Scarlett Jo singing, I'd hate to think what we'd get if a picture of her got posted.
  Thu. 6/26/08 4:43pm frenchee:

"Mad World" by Gary Jules. Sob, slobber, rinse, repeat.
Though that Dusty song nearly broke me!
  Thu. 6/26/08 4:43pm phat:

Wow, I wasn't a Percy Sledge fan until now.
  Thu. 6/26/08 4:44pm Sean Daily:

Monica, do you have a song from "The Idiot Formerly Known as FOOM" called "Godzilla"? That song always gets the waterworks going on me, for some reason.
  Thu. 6/26/08 4:45pm Dominick:

One of my favorite songs. Never heard Percy do his magic to it - nice!
  Thu. 6/26/08 4:46pm Negator:

tHE GIRL FROm Ipaneama. is sad too.
  Thu. 6/26/08 4:46pm alex d:

Leonard cohen - One of Us cannot be wrong
Leonard Cohen - Stories of the Street (mainly the last line)
Modest Mouse - 3rd Planet

when i was around 8yrs old Sloop John B always made cry.
  Thu. 6/26/08 4:48pm frenchee:

"Calling You" by Jevetta Steele--even when it was a telephone commercial I wept like a baby.
  Thu. 6/26/08 4:50pm Negator:

Wichita Lineman-sad
  Thu. 6/26/08 4:50pm GUMBY:

Funny song, If anyone was a legend in their time beyond The King and The Godfather of Soul it was probably The Man in Black
  Thu. 6/26/08 4:50pm Negator:

Midnight Cowboy Theme-sad
  Thu. 6/26/08 4:50pm north guinea hills:

zarusthathra damn it! now johnny, are you trying to make me cry today!!! f you monica! (*sniff) f' you (*sob)
  Thu. 6/26/08 4:51pm Foreign Listener K:

From a Douglas Wolk show, Frankie Armstrong singing Tam Lin using nothing but her voice, and ending -

...Crying, "Me love I've won, I've won"
Oh crying, "Me love I've won."

And outten spoke the Queen of Elfenland
From the bush wherein she stood
"I should have tore out your eyes Tam Lin
And put in two eyes of wood, of wood
Put in two eyes of wood."

Amazing - certainly gets me.

On the other hand, my son always cried to a German lullabye, called 'La Le Lu' -
La-le-lu
nur der Mann im Mond schaut zu
wenn die kleinen Babies schlafen
drum schlaf' auch du

La-le-lu
vor dem Bettchen steh'n zwei Schuh'
die sind genauso muede
geh'n jetzt zur Ruh'...

He grew out of it, but I doubt that will ever happen to me with that version of Tam Lin.
  Thu. 6/26/08 4:51pm Negator:

Dark Globe-Syd Barrett-sad
  Thu. 6/26/08 4:51pm Slink:

Hallejuah devastates me (just saw L Cohen in montreal. oh my...humble majesty) also, Slip Slidin' Away (P Simon); Crying (R. Orbison); Condemnation (Dep Mode)

thanks, Monica -- this is...well fun is the not the word. how about good?
  Thu. 6/26/08 4:52pm north guinea hills:

(cowokers aren't looking, i can drop my manly pretensions). THANK YOU MONICA!
  Thu. 6/26/08 4:54pm Dead Corporate Eyes:

come on get happy!
  Thu. 6/26/08 4:55pm Negator:

Stardust-Hoagy Carmichal
  Thu. 6/26/08 4:55pm north guinea hills:

'tis a nice version of tam lin, of my recent youth i loved, Foreign Listener K, there be a version none the finer!
  Thu. 6/26/08 4:55pm GUMBY:

Ben by Michael Jackson is so sad. Rats really do have nowhere to go, no friends, just other rats. sniff, sniff. Lots and lots of other rats.
  Thu. 6/26/08 4:56pm alex d:

yeah hallejuah too, but mostly jeff buckley's cover...a lot of leonard cohen and tom waits do it to me
  Thu. 6/26/08 4:58pm Dead Corporate Eyes:

punch-out time, bye bye, have a nice day!
  Thu. 6/26/08 4:59pm Don Pubah:

nostalgic tears somehow from Spirit in the Night by the Boss.
  Thu. 6/26/08 5:00pm Parq:

"Ben" is about rats?? And all this time, I thought it was about lawyers . . .
  Thu. 6/26/08 5:03pm slink:

true, alex. that buckley cover is crushing. but LC takes the crown overall in these matters of melancholy.

: that B Raitt song "can't make you love me" always makes me stop what i'm doing(in the place that's playing lite fm)...to feel sad and wistful. love it.

and speaking of lite FM "everbody's gotta learn sometime" by the korgis. so resigned and sad (and wafting)....
  Thu. 6/26/08 5:04pm GUMBY:

rats/lawyers same difference
I love hallejuah for its art & delivery, but I don't find it sad at all. Take your breath away yes, cry no.
  Thu. 6/26/08 5:05pm slink:

"send in the clowns," sinatra; "love hurts" nazareth. ok, i'll chill out and just listen now.
  Thu. 6/26/08 5:07pm dale:

Yea Jamestown! I'm from WNY....pretty area, financially depressed unfortunately.
  Thu. 6/26/08 5:07pm north guinea hills:

(shhh... , former marching band geek....)
  Thu. 6/26/08 5:07pm GUMBY:

I heard The Ledge by the Replecements the other day on my headphones and there is one sad song. Even with that pop-pop-pop drum and everything the melencholy seeps through.
  Thu. 6/26/08 5:08pm north guinea hills:

mas canciones en espanol!!!!
  Thu. 6/26/08 5:11pm alex d:

last one... "Waitin For a Superman" by the flamming lips...so sad.
  Thu. 6/26/08 5:29pm phil from tha hill:

Wow, i was just thinking about the last time you were on (killer playlist as always) and lucky moi, here you are again! Keep it going m'lady!
  Thu. 6/26/08 5:37pm Richard:

1. You dont miss your water by Taj Mahal 2. It makes no difference by The Band 3.Hot Burrito by Gram Parsons. Nuff said. Pas the sleeping pills please.
  Thu. 6/26/08 5:42pm Negator:

Party down the Line- The Replacements-sad song
  Thu. 6/26/08 5:43pm dAN:

There's no such song so how can it be sad?
  Thu. 6/26/08 5:44pm HotRod:

Can you believe it!?! Hercules & Love Affair finally came out domestically! Too bad so many people already bought the import. The kids are so impatient!
  Thu. 6/26/08 5:51pm san francisco spike:

  Thu. 6/26/08 5:53pm spaniel:
