Sing Along

I have updated my radio blog. I love this toy. I don’t know if you all even bother to listen. I hope you do. But I think it’s just cool to share some of my favorite music with you.

So this week, we start off with “The Sweetest Thing” by U2. This isn’t the single that came out a few years ago — I don’t have that (wish I did). This is the B-side that appeared in the The Best Of 1980-1990 [Limited Edition] collection of B sides on Disc 2. Still pretty good.

Next up is something I bet you all haven’t heard unless you have Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers’ box set Playback: a version of “Stop Draggin’ My Heart Around” sung by Tom Petty. Yes, they donated that one to Steve Nicks and performed it on Bella Donna (an amazing album, too). Different, but good.

“Blue” is on Tomorrow the Green Grass by the Jayhawks, and it’s so darned catchy. It’s been stuck in my head in some fashion for years.

“When You’re Gone” is on To the Faithful Departed by the Cranberries. I cannot listen to this song without belting out along with Dolores at top volume.

Finally, the Black Crowes deliver up “Bad Luck Blue Eyes Goodbye” from The Southern Harmony and Musical Companion. This is easily the best Black Crowes album, and this song is one of my favorite tracks on that album. Great blues.

So enjoy. I will.
