And now the Breeders. I like your show because we apparently came through a lot of the same musical avenues. Cheers to that.

90s? How about Brainiac or Some Velvet Sidewalk?

Some Velvet Morning is one of the creepiest and awesomest Lee Hazelwood songs, both of which are saying something.

This is a well steered 1990s list. Good work!

The MBV show was the only real present-tense-redeeming 90s nostalgia show I went to last year (of so many). And yes, BGZ, blew my friggin right eardrum out for a while.

Avatar Swag For Life Member    Mon. 3/31/14 1:00am BadGuyZero:

Thanks for having them on Therese. I was checking out the handful of tracks they have on Bandcamp and really like what they're doing. Another great discovery made via WFMU!
Avatar Mon. 3/31/14 1:02am mariano:

Seems the show is causing a spike in people calling their exes. After a couple more of these Heineken big boys, I might have to jump on that bandwagon!

I broke up with a girl who called swervedriver's lyrics pretentious, so yes
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Mon. 3/31/14 1:14am BadGuyZero:

My 90s split-up was caused by my deciding that 19-years-old was the perfect age for getting married.

Great stuff from Overlake (a name like a NJ borough). Next week I will plan ahead, and even if I don't, Sunday night will have a better chance of me lasting than it did tonight.

Until, then, enjoy the rain if it is pouring there like it is here. It is the newest sound in these parts.

Overlake sounds really good! are they on now, or prerecorded? Nate, to this day I can't listen to Sinead O'Connor's Just Like You Said It Would Be because of a breakup in '88.
Avatar Mon. 3/31/14 1:24am Whooda:

@nate those are some serious lyrics to break-up with. I think the point goes to 'the music' on that one.

@mariano Be careful what you wish for. You think *one* x-wife is hard to deal with, just wait until you get four or five of them together on the phone at the same time to gang-up on you.

@Mariano Two songs make me cry one is Sinead O'Connor's cover of Elton John's Sacrafice.
Avatar Mon. 3/31/14 1:31am mariano:

Point taken, Whooda: I've never been married, though I've lived with quite a few exes. Time After Time tends to make my lower lip flutter, though it's not associated with any breakup. What's the other song of the two you mentioned?

  Mon. 3/31/14 1:34am P-90:

love that guitar tone
Avatar Mon. 3/31/14 1:34am Whooda:

The other song is from the same album, Two Rooms, a Taupin / John tribute. It is Sting's cover of Come Down in Time. It is freakishly close in describing the first days of our relationship.
Avatar    Mon. 3/31/14 1:35am KP:

Yeah P-90, they really have it all
Avatar Mon. 3/31/14 1:36am Whooda:

I wonder if this Overlake session is played in order of performance. It seems to get better with each song to me.

@nate All of that magnetic tape was used as cactus tinsel in the southern deserts. I think the plastic cases became pebbles in the Painted Desert.

Y'know, I always thought it a bit cheap of Sir Elton not to write a whole new song for Di. I remember when I heard it in the news: was going home from a Crash Worship show in Oakland, it was about 7am.

Read today that Sir Elton is tying the knot with his long time honey.

I think Elton was busy filming his cameo for Spice World at the time, it was the best he could do under the circumstances.

When I worked at Borders we had soooooooooo many copies of that "Candle in the Wind" CD single. They were non-returnable since all the proceeds went to charity. I ended up marking a few hundred copies out of inventory each month for several months and destroying them. We had great fun destroying them.

Hope you burned them, in the wind

Then Mother Theresa died around the same time, prompting that awful joke about "Sandal in the Wind."
Avatar Mon. 3/31/14 2:21am Whooda:

@mariano I agree with you in the face value of the song was *not* about Dianne because, of course, it predated her death but I guess the similar circumstances of similarity between MM and the Princess were too much to resist. A form of memorial and protest against the Royals rolled into one convenient million selling package.

There's a golden torch statue almost exactly where Di was killed in Paris. EVerybody thinks it's a monument to her but it's not.

Can we agree that it was better than rewriting a song from the Lion King soundtrack?

Glad I'm not the only one who thought it a bit creepy when Sir Elton repurposed his classic Marilyn song as a Lady Di funeral dirge

Going to roll, Therese. Great work. Goodnight all

KP: the statue is IN the tunnel?
Avatar Mon. 3/31/14 2:28am Whooda:

@P-90 it kind of ruined the song for me. Now when I hear it I don't know if I'm supposed to feel sorry for MM and hate the Kennedys or I'm supposed to feel sorry for Lady Di and hate the inbreed Royals.
Avatar Mon. 3/31/14 2:33am mariano:

'Night, KP!
  Mon. 3/31/14 2:34am P-90:

I don't think the Kennedys were anywhere near Taupin and Elton's intentions when they wrote the song, and likewise I really doubt that Sir Elton meant the remake to be a jab at the Crown, just a tribute to his friend
Avatar Mon. 3/31/14 2:34am mariano:

Yeah, Whooda and P90: seemed a lot like RIP [insert name].
Avatar Mon. 3/31/14 2:40am Whooda:

The death of a starlet in itself would be of no consequence and not worth a memorial song. EJ related to the star due to an early influence from her and her story, the 'sacrificial lamb'. John himself became somewhat of a martyr when he came out of the closet inthe 70's. He lived the life. The Kennedy's clan can no more be separated from MM death than Princess Di's from the Royals. Without the power component in both deaths, they would be completely unremarkable.

Joker man called me back. Great version.
P-90 it's at the end of tunnel on street, near the Seine. People leave flowers

SNL was a classic this week! Black Jepordy was great. KP Louis, or whatever his name is was funny as hell. the Boss With the Babies Body was hilarious. I was underwhelmed by the musical guest.

I hate to imagine what the FMU car corral was like around marathon time. I should have gone and looked.

There is a mathematical equation to parallel parking, much like playing pool and making bank shots.

A phlanger is a tool used to remove the muffler bearing on a car.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Mon. 3/31/14 2:59am Kurt Gottschalk:

the guitar sound on the rolling stones "shattered" is a phlanger.
