Wrapping up the morning, we have a song from a film, a ballad that is vaguely reminiscent of the Beatles and quite pretty. The song is titled Save Me and is performed by Aimee Mann:
Our next tune, this one performed by Julia Marcell, is a sort of whimsical number loosely based on a dancer beguiled by a short but famous little Parisian artist. The song is titled Dancer:
I tend to prefer female singers, so I'm going to highlight three today, starting with the gloomiest number of the morning first, although the song, I'm Alive, by Heather Nova, is a moving one (even if the video isn't):
All of today's songs are favorites, depending on my mood, so I skipped the 'pick of the day' this week.
I mentioned that The Pretty Reckless has lyrics that verge on the vulgar, but the truth is many of them are vulgar, yet does anyone care? The band has a good, tight sound. Our last song of the morning is titled Make Me Want to Die:
One last thing: I want to thank Schwabman, who filled in for the last two weeks and has helped me out considerably in this section for most of the year.
The actress, Taylor Momsen, fronts The Pretty Reckless and fills the role of lead singer more than capably. Our next tune is titled My Medicine:
The music this weekend is pretty straight forward even if the lyrics to many of The Pretty Reckless' songs are on the verge of vulgar. That said, the group has a good sound and a good singer. The first number of the morning is titled Follow Me Down:
I have no picks of the day this morning--all the tunes are pretty good.
Finally, unless you were living under a rock, you heard that Nov 22 was the 50th anniversary of JFK being shot and killed in Dallas. I apologize in advance, but I had to do it. Here's The Dead Kennedys - I Fought The Law. Have a great Thanksgiving everyone! For those of you traveling to see family, may your journey be safe and joyous.
Also this week in 1988, the B-2 bomber prototype was revealed.Since it was called the B-2 Spirit, I'm naturally posting one of my favorites from Spirit (are you starting to see the theme here?). Here's I Got A Line on You.
Happy Saturday BLRag music fans! Schwabman here yet again for Zoyclem who's once again taking advantage of my good nature and inablility to say no when someone asks if I'll do them a favor. With that being said, this past week there were some pretty significiant anniversaries in our country's history. November 19 was the 150th anniversary of Lincoln's Gettysburg address To commerate the anniversry, I'm posting music from Linkin Park. Here's In The End
