Led Zeppelin, "Since I've Been Loving You"
I dunno, I've just got a feeling, I'm not sure this band is really gonna ever make it big.
James Brown, "There It Is"
Awwww hell yes, if we're going back, let's get the Godfather of Soul! I always wonder a little bit with Brown, if his music sounds so fresh because so much of it was refreshed by hip hop making use of it. I don't think so, but it's also impossible for me to listen to this stuff totally clean.
Wilco, "I'm Always In Love"
I've sort of given up trying to rank my favorite Wilco record. It's pretty much whichever of Being There, Summerteeth, and Yankee Hotel Foxtrot I've listened to most recently. This sweet tune with the usual double-edged lyrics is one of the highlights of the record.
Einstürzende Neubauten, "Der 1.Weltkrieg"
There are times for every writer when you've got to step back and let the subject do the talking. Here, at Five Songs, that comes in just letting a song speak for itself. So, I'm going to get out of the way.
John Zorn, "Peckin' Time"
Goodness, quite a day today. News For Lulu features Zorn and his collaborators (George Lewis and Bill Frisell) taking on compositions without any traditional rhythm instruments. The results are all pretty interesting.
