Five for Friday

WCBE LogoAn "Occassional Series" here at Salguod.net. Inspired by Daniel at Alien Soil, I fire up Media Player on random and post the first 5 songs here.

  1. John Gorka and Lucy Kaplansky - A Saint's Complaint from WCBE - Vol. 9 - Double Dose
    Another great live tune from one of WCBE's 'Live From Studio A' recordings. A folksy tune recorded with acoustic guitar and two singers.
  2. The Turtles - Happy Together from Happy Together
    The 60's were awesome times for popular music, weren't they? I'm betting that many of you will leave this post with this song in your head. You're welcome.
  3. Don Henley - Sunset Grille from Building the Perfect Beast
    I think this was one of the 2 or 3 hits from this 1984 release. A bit long at almost 6 1/2 minutes. Don Henley has a cynical edge to him that appeals to me, which is not likely a good thing. A good disc overall.
  4. Styx - The Best of Times from Classics, Vol. 15
    This was originally from Paradise Theater, arguably their peak album. This was a more mellow, pop oriented Styx than their earlier stuff. Still feels like classic Styx, though, with their unique harmonies and piano work. (Of course, the next album, Kilroy was Here, was full on 80's pop with a little rock opera mixed in, but I'll save that for another FfF.)
  5. Ben Harper and the Blind Boys of Alabama - Mother Pray from There Will be a Light
    The Blind Boys are awesome. I wish I could generate the kind of resonance that bass does. Heard these guys on WCBE a while back.

Your turn, fire up your MP3 player, put it on random and give me yours in the comments.

I loved that Turtles song.. think I was around 18 when it came out.

If I fired up the computer mp3 player or my daughters it has about a 90% chance of being Hanna Montana. So, no thanks! It takes long enough to get them song out of my head. :)
