Still remember when Cannonball's "Mercy" was a top 40 hit. For years, I assumed Cannonball Adderley was a piano player, since that seemed the dominant instrument on that track.

No, but it doesn't get talked about enough that "Oh Sweet Nuthin" and "Can't You See" by the Marshall Tucker Band are the same song. Somebody should do that medley at the next marathon finale.

Good one, Greg, but I'm on a slow drawl right now. You got any down songs that are more of a downer? :)
  Mon. 9/11/17 11:43am Mark in Toronto:

Mark Eitzel (Solo) does such a good cover of this Carole King song.

it's hard to find a not-so-noisy version of helter skelter, it turns out
Avatar Mon. 9/11/17 11:44am herb.nyc:

ooh, i never heard c.king sing this - only the dusty springfield version.
Avatar Mon. 9/11/17 11:44am Joe McG:

@Mark: Ooh, you're right, his version is great!

I know how this set ends, Status Quo. Just kidding.

Cheap Trick, "Downed"
Avatar Mon. 9/11/17 11:45am Joe McG:

@Dean: I think I can arrange that one!
  Mon. 9/11/17 11:45am Dean:

"Nobody Loves You (When You're Down and Out)"
  Mon. 9/11/17 11:45am Dean:

Very nice!

Thanks Joe!

How about "Goin' Down" by the Monkees?
Avatar Mon. 9/11/17 11:47am Joe McG:

@Brian: Ha ha ha, always Status Quo!
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Mon. 9/11/17 11:47am Greg from ZONE 5:

Hmm. Definitely not "Come On Down" by Big Daddy Kane (feat. Busta Rhymes & Q-Tip)
Avatar Mon. 9/11/17 11:47am The Oscar:

Hahaha-- listening while working, and the theme of this set JUST dawned on me!

New schedule week always gets me excited. And sad at the same time. At least the monday day time schedule is still intact. Because nobody gets me in the right mood for the week like the Monday Joes. Great set as always, McG. THANKS!
Avatar Mon. 9/11/17 11:49am Joe McG:

Aw, shucks, Fernando, thanks so much! So happy to be with you all on Monday mornings.

Tracy Nelson and Mother Earth -- "Down So Low"
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Mon. 9/11/17 11:50am Mick:

Such a great set/show. I know it's late, but Sylvan Esso's 'Come Down' has the added bonus of a hair-washing reference.
  Mon. 9/11/17 11:50am Mark in Toronto:

Micks singing here reminds me very much of Gram Parsons phrasing.
  Mon. 9/11/17 11:51am Dean:

A stretch, but X-Ray Spex, "Let's Submerge"

Rose Royce - I'm Goin' Down

LOVING this Nina Simone version!!!!
Avatar Mon. 9/11/17 11:54am Joe McG:

Hey everybody, thanks for the great suggestions during the last hour of the show. Sorry I couldn't fit them all in. Have a great week, and see you next Monday!
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Mon. 9/11/17 11:55am Passaic River Blues:

The opening and closing sets were monsters, Joe. Thank you!
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Mon. 9/11/17 11:55am Ken From Hyde Park:

Johnny Cash singing "Sunday Morning Coming Down" is one, but Jonesey & X. Ray own the WFMU rights & privileges to it. Tomorrow marks Johnny's 14 years away.
Avatar Mon. 9/11/17 11:55am herb.nyc:

oh poop, Ken Stringfellow sang "down like me" yesterday at bushwick's Cape House. a beautiful song, off his TOUCHED cd, which came out (ahem) on 9/11/20011.
Avatar    Mon. 9/11/17 11:56am slugluv1313:

thank YOU, Joe, for a great show!
