U2 – “Still Haven’t Found What I’m Looking For (Rattle and Hum)”

rattle-and-hum

the way i look at it, all artists have a specific time in their career where they’re at their artistic peak. riding high off the massive success of The Joshua Tree, Rattle and Rum‘s film exudes the confidence that only a band who thinks, believes and acts like the best can make. a recommended watch for those haven’t seen it yet. see why below.

p.s. – it being the 80’s at the time, the female lead in Harlem’s New Voices of Freedom gospel choir totally schools bono. she should have been handed a record deal on a silver platter.

THROWBACK SATURDAYS: Tom Waits – “Green Grass”

waits

Tom Waits – “Green Grass”

“lay your head where my heart used to be, hold the earth above me”, ….one of the most beautiful lines ever put to music. “green grass” is a song that swallows you up, envelops you, eases, rips, tears, comforts …”green grass” exposes (at those most self-selectively impossible times) that space that capacity to feel something….anything.

The Dead Weather – “Are Friends Electric?”

deadweather5

The Dead Weather – “Are Friends Electric?”

the b-side from “hang you from the heavens” and the only tune we’ve heard from these guys where everyone else in the band isn’t trying to sound like multi-instrumental alter-ego’s of jack white. perhaps a direction for the next album? and without a doubt have to agree on the media shit.

Toggi – “I Built This House”

so the story goes… iceland’s Toggi bought his first guitar when he was 17. he had always dreamed of making music, and one day he decided it was time to make things happen. his natural songwriting talent shines on “i built this house” which will be released on his new record due early 2010. don’t you love happy endings?

Citizen Cope – “Let the Drummer Kick”

citizen-cope-music-3

Citizen Cope – “Let the Drummer Kick”

Citizen Cope is the pseudonym of Clarence Greenwood. off his self-titled debut LP in 2002, “Let the Drummer Kick” is a good example of how solid music will remain relevant. synched on So You Think You Can Dance, an Acura commercial and many others 6+ years after it was released, Greenwood is clearly an early proponent of the licensing that so many today seek. is that a bad thing? as Iggy Pop puts it, “If people want to use my songs to sell sausages, that’s fine because they weren’t made for sausages.” will this song be used for sausages? only time will tell.. but the good news is “you don’t even have to wait”
