And for my 2 cents, I'm quite partial to the current. I've got it on my "Must Aquire" list for my record digging trips!
Avatar Fri. 11/17/17 3:09pm Wild Neil:

I try really hard at these comparisons, so @NotARealDoctor, thank you for self reporting! &Cecile! I guess she has some fancy musical term for having the same...color? timbre? voice as Amy Winehouse?
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 11/17/17 3:10pm Cecile:

To me Amy seems to sing from the throat more. The notes seem swish around in Paloma's mouth more and she's more sibilant, if that makes any sense.
Avatar Fri. 11/17/17 3:10pm Wild Neil:

Gin Wigmore sounds kinda like AW. A very little.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 11/17/17 3:10pm BabyBear:

Oh my, I thought that I was going to have to miss SBB this week, but luckily the office Thanksgiving party didn't go too long. Rejoice!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 11/17/17 3:11pm Cecile:

Sorry, I knew Paloma wasn't Amy. I've listened to Amy way too much. I just didn't know about theme voting.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Fri. 11/17/17 3:11pm NotARealDoctor:

@Cecile, I see where you're coming from, but I kind of attributed that to the variability of Amy's voice depending on her sobriety.

Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 11/17/17 3:17pm Cecile:

Do you want to change your theme song again? I like your theme song. Unless it's getting changed to Hair the Dog by Nazareth. Then, hell yeah, change it.
Avatar Fri. 11/17/17 3:20pm djsheilab:

@Cecile Yeah, I was thinking change might be good. BUT...there's also the option to keep the same theme. Gonna play the three options later in the show.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 11/17/17 3:20pm Adrian in London:

Really like this Loma song. Very, uh, *atmospheric*!

sheila keep the theme it's the sound of the weekend beginning and gives me tingles
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Fri. 11/17/17 3:22pm NotARealDoctor:

I'm open-minded, I want to hear the options. But I definitely love the current theme, so they'll have to be really good...
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 11/17/17 3:22pm Cecile:

Oh, how I hope I get to vote for Hair of the Dog! I love cognitive dissonance!

I looked at the communique. I love Sophisticated Boom Boom, but it's a little on-the-nose.
Avatar Fri. 11/17/17 3:26pm The Oscar:

I would love to hear a dreamy girl-pop version of "Hair of the Dog."
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 11/17/17 3:26pm Cecile:

I wonder if this is a nod to Lou Reed's former partner Sylvia? Lou wrote all those "says" songs.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 11/17/17 3:27pm Cecile:

Oscar, that needs to happen. Or Babymetal needs to do it.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 11/17/17 3:29pm Adrian in London:

Nice to see Kelly Lee Owens' LP getting lots of love in the end-of-year polls.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 11/17/17 3:30pm Cecile:

I have to go get the mail, but I am voting for the current theme if you are tallying.
  Fri. 11/17/17 3:30pm P-90:

Haven't even opened today's communique yet, they tend to arrive in a breathless rush shortly before the show starts. Which is kinda cool: if one has a few minutes to read it while actually listening to the show, it's like the radio equivalent of reading the back of the cereal box while gorging on a big bowl of the yummy goodness inside!
  Fri. 11/17/17 3:31pm Stephanie:

"Open ended series" is what I like to hear
  Fri. 11/17/17 3:38pm matt in Peapack:

Just got into my car, tuned in and ready to listen. Hello everyone. Sheila B. You make my drive home from work oh so good. Keep it up!
  Fri. 11/17/17 3:39pm Neil:

Even a tree can shed a tear is a great record. My favourite track is Marianne by GU.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Fri. 11/17/17 3:40pm Passaic River Blues:

Maki Asakawa's "Shinkyoku B" from her "Cat Nap" album is a gem. Should pull that out again.

Avatar Fri. 11/17/17 3:44pm The Oscar:

It's funny-- a lot of albums for me are tied to the period of time my parents happened to have the cassette in their cars. That Ella/Louie is my mom's car, December of (I believe) 1992.
  Fri. 11/17/17 3:44pm Neil:

I love Maki Asakawa but it's hard to get her records in the UK.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Fri. 11/17/17 3:45pm doctorjazz:

If I remember correctly, there were 2 famous Verve albums Louie and Ella made in the mid 50's, this was from a session a few years earlier.

@Cecile: yeah, even the victims in that case were awful. the show is very sympathetic towards the brothers and their defense attorney, which is odd but definitely a bold tack to take, and definitely distinguishes it from american crime story where it was pretty clear they thought OJ did it and marcia clark/chris darden were the heroes (although johnnie cochran is kind of an antihero)

I loved Liz Phair's "Why Can't I" when I was 10. Then as an adult I fell in love with Exile in Guyville. Then a few years later I found out it was the same person and was like "wtf". And I read the reviews for her pop album in '04 and felt terrible because everyone hated it and said it was her downfall and I loved it...but it was targeted towards little girls, or at least the single was, and apparently it worked. I used to jump up and down on my bed singing it into my hairbrush.

@Bronwyn I had a similar experience-- thanks to the weirdness of the filesharing era, the first Liz Phair I heard was the Girlysound tapes. I tried describing it to friends who only knew the '00s pop stuff, and we were literally convinced we were talking about two different artists!

Chrysalis is AMAZING! In my opinion-waaaay to heavy and topical though.
Sophisticated Boom Boom is great but pigeon-holes the time period.
The current theme is groovy 60s but sounds fresh and contemporary at the same time. It's also indicative of the vairety. I say keep this one. I get a little chill of excitement whenever I hear it. Also-it's the most SOPHISTICATED-sounding of all songs, in my opinion.

i just posted 'i'm gonna be strong' on a fb music group. didn't know that frankie laine originally recorded it.

@Guido, you need new friends! And you'll find them here…
Avatar    Fri. 11/17/17 5:08pm BronwynB:

@Cecile: EXACTLY. It's funny because just a couple of nights ago I had a little epiphany about how all my creative endeavors are super over the top and bombastic I can't get away from it so I just have to embrace it- kind of like being the Gene Pitney of writing/directing
  Fri. 11/17/17 5:09pm Adrian in London:

Oh yeah, these are all right on target. Well done, everyone

@Dale: check I'm gonna be strong by Blue Angel featuring Cyndi Lauper
Avatar    Fri. 11/17/17 5:09pm BronwynB:

@dale: I didn't know that either and used to laugh at Laine for not doing the crazy 24-beat climbing-the-scale-to-the-high-note thing at the end and then found out Gene decided to add that himself.

I'm late to the party but Evening Shadows by Seaside Lovers is insanely atmospheric. Lots of Japanese city pop is, so I want to list like 10 others as well, but I'll refrain.

That's why I like doo-wop, thrash metal, black metal, and drag.

i picked up gene pitney's big 16 at the salvay when i was in college. then started finding his records everywhere and picking up every one i could. i guess the 70s was the right time to pick up 60s rekkids.
Avatar Fri. 11/17/17 5:14pm glenn:

of course, runaway is probably most people's fave gene pitney song, and they don't realize it's a gene pitney song.

Oooooooh. I remember this song when the movie came out. Excellent choice.

my favorite thing about gene pitney is that he wrote "he's a rebel." he was known for singing other people's melodramatic weepy ballads, and then he wrote a song that's so full of joy.

'atmoshpheric' made me think of air's moon safari cd and i had to play sexiboy on the youtubes. that song is 20 years old!

Thanks common. I had my eyes, closed, and clicked down the data tree like I do hundreds of times and I guess I accidentally deleted everything. It would have been an interesting weekend if I had to camp out at the office if couldn't restore everything (and there were other people's work there too). Time to change the folder permissions (wait, that's my job!)

I'm out shopping and drinking beer at Netto in Tårnby, Denmark, I'm shopping for my birthday tomorrow and the supermarket is full of exactly the types of bored youths this type of atmospheric music was originally made for, today the only look different and come of a tad more vile. anyway I'm loving this segment and lots of overpriced items are in my shopping trolley because of it

"sah-oo-doh-SEES-moh" is how you pronounce the Gal Costa tune (but it's all good, Portuguese is tricky).
