01) Nelly – “Just a Dream”

Hey, be easy… I like this song.

Now, I’ll always love you Beat 94-5, you have superior DJs and generally a better broadcast experience compared to most radio stations.

That said, Sirius Hits 1 plays this song pretty much twice an hour.  No sane radio station should be burning songs this mental, but I am sure glad Sirius doesn’t care about convention and plays this song over and over and over and over… and you get the idea.

I don’t know why I love it so much.  I was going to post the single cover for this song on my blog… but then I saw Nelly on the cover and I hated myself.

I guess the song makes me think of Coral.  That is nice.  I was thinking about her today in fact while the song played and she phoned me.  Whoa, kismet.  I told Coral about my cosmic experience but she didn’t look impressed.  She said, “You know the song is about breaking up with your wife right?”  hmmm.

02) The Daylights – “I Hope This Gets To You”

The cover art at the top is for this LA band that I also heard on Sirius Hits 1 between Nelly.  I like that Hits 1 plays some modern rockish type songs between the pop. This is one of them.

They give me the expansive melodramatic feel of the Airborne Toxic Event.  Speaking of the Airborne Toxic Event, I should put that song on.  Damn they were good.  Why they aren’t major rock stars is a tragedy.

03) Floyd Cramer – “On The Rebound”

We travel back to 1961 for Mr. Cramer’s (RIP) #3 instrumental hit.  This song you might recognize from the opening credits of the film “An Education.”

Was it just me, or were you also pretty let down when Peter Sarsgaard asked to see Jenny’s tits and the camera angle was so artistic as to not actually show anything?  It was just me? oh.

Coral heard this song during the film and we had to add it to the collection.  now it lives during my sets at the Veneto Lounge.

04) The Killers – “Leave Your Bourbon on the Shelf”

I says to my iTunes the other day, I says, “iTunes, do I have any songs about bourbon?”

Yup, I got one.

The companion song for my video that I made yesterday.

05) Fitz and the Tantrums – “Moneygrabber”

Fitz & Company like the soul music of the 60s. I like soul music from the 60s.  Despite your gimmicky name, we can be friends.

What’s that? No guitar? You don’t say.

This song is currently my ear candy song on the Zone.  Its a good song, but sounds GREAT on the FM stereo sound of 91.3 FM.

06) Atomic Tom – “Take Me Out”

Brooklyn hipsters begin career by selling out… basically they perform their song “Take Me Out” (not a Franz Ferdinand cover) on a NYC subway car using iPhones.

The video gets viewed a bunch… and now they get played on the radio a half world away on the Zone.  My bones tell me to not like this song, but I always sing along when I hear it.  Whatever, I’m weak sometimes.

Go with your bad self.
