Chef Mamacita Is Ready To Fix Some Ragoo - Monday Shuffle

Mamacita - Outkast.  Huh, I don't know about this.  I've listened to Aquemini quite a few times but I have no recollection of this song.  Kids are rapping now.  Children have no business being rappers.  Remember Kris Kross?  They were terrible and made me hate children rappers for an eternity.  Andre finally comes in with some correction.  It's too slow though.  Slow rap is kinda shitty.  Its also over 5 minutes.  There are very few rap songs worth more than 3 and a half minutes.  Pretty…

City Cowboys Are Such Deceitful Ones - Monday Shuffle

Midnight Cowboy - Faith No More.  Exactly what it says.  This is the them to Midnight Cowboy with a few rock n' roll embellishments.  It's great zone out music but has little value beyond that.  I'm on the prowl for some action tonight.

No Such Thing - John Mayer.  How the hell did this dude get the reputation of being a guitar genius?  This is just bland pop.  I'm skipping this, it's making me angry.

Paradise City - Guns N' Roses.  Here's some of that rock n…

I'll Remove The Crazy If You Give Me Something To Hold On To - Monday Shuffle

Giving Spotify Radio a shot tonight.  This is the Tesla channel.

I'll Be There - LA Guns.  Wow, I have no recollection of this song but it is greasy, sleazy and rockin'.  It makes me think of a totally stripped down Guns song with shitty production.  I actually like it.  The album is called Shrinking Violet.  Gonna listen to it all later.

Lazy Days, Crazy Nights - Tesla.  Tesla can't miss.  This is great stuff.

Love Removal Machine - Great White.…

Enough, Eating Sweet Spanish Chicken Is Gonna Make Her Leave - Sunday Shuffle

Had Enough - Tesla.  Niceness!  I recently picked up Psychotic Supper and this is the first time I've heard this song since the cassette I had broke in my car in 1992.  Tesla is one of my go to bands.  Never been disappointed by any of their releases.  The can be surprisingly metal too.  There is plenty of blues influence here but the balls out metal negates all of that.

Half Steering, Half Eating Ice Cream - Neptunes.  This one came up on the shuffle too recently.  Gonna skip…

Cowboys Still Favor Disease Free, Living Beef. Tuesday Shuffle

More Magic-

Alive - Pearl Jam.  I saw this video on Headbanger's Ball late one Saturday night in 1991.  I went to the record store the next day to buy the album.  They didn't have Ten in stock.  Not because of demand mind you, it was because nobody gave a damn yet.  Yessir, I am a Pearl Jam pioneer.  Ten is magic top to bottom.  Anyone that says Nirvana released a better album in 1991 is a goddamn liar.

A Favor House Atlantic - Coheed & Cambria.  This was…

Monday Shuffle - Magic Albums

I've set up a playlist of 15 albums that I consider "magic" and will be running the shuffle from that today.  By "magic" I mean an album that made me a lifelong fan of that band upon the first listen and albums that I will listen to in full at least once a month.  There are my favorite songs from my favorite bands.

Body Talk - Ratt.  Out of the Cellar was my first Ratt album but Dancin' Undercover made me a maniac.  It was probably this song that did it too.  It's metal.  The…

Sunday Shuffle 12/11

The Threshingfloor - Wovenhand.  I stumbled across this band on Spotify and actually picked up this CD used on Amazon.  There is a definite Moroccan flavor to this song.  Usually that world music shit just pisses me off but this is actually more than tolerable.  In fact I'd recommend this band to just about anyone that likes music.  They may get heavy with the Jesus sentiment too so there's that.

Rise Up & Fight - Crippled Black Phoenix.  Another band I found on…

Ingesting Alien Blood At Midnight Will End Your Linear Concept Of Surroundings - Thursday Shuffle

End Tapes - The Joy Formidable.  So a band that I really like is on the Twilight Saga - Breaking Dawn soundtrack.  It's more than a little enraging.  The Joy Formidable isn't for love sick teenagers.  It's for middle aged music nerds that couldn't care less about Twilight.  I guess this song is a little more accessible than most of their stuff and they do need an audience.  It should have been a different venue to introduce this band to the public though.

Young Blood - Naked…

Poems Of Living, Singing, Love, Wounds, And Revenge - Wednesday Shuffle

I Just Wanna Live - Good Charlotte.  Gonna mix things up today and use Google Music instead of iTunes for the Shuffle.  There are going to be a lot of songs I have never heard or even care for showing up.  That includes this song.  I have actually seen Good Charlotte in concert but couldn't tell you a single song of their.  This seems like it might be a cover.  Looking it up.  Nope, it's their original.  Good enough I suppose.

Undersea Poem - Menlna que Corre.  Ugh,…

They Crossed The Line By Moving Like Ricky - Tuesday Shuffle.

They Came In - Butthole Surfers.  I'd really like a new BS album.  There are very of their songs that I don't really like.  The album this is on, Weird Revolution, is every bit as good as Electriclarryland.  There is a possibility that it's even better because of songs like this.  It's heavy on the electronic experimentation but remains a good hard rock song.  Check it out.  ++++

The Thin Line - Queensryche.  I was a bit let down by Empire but thought this song was a real…

American Hurricanes Can Be Nightmarish Monsters. Monday Shuffle.

Monster Skank - Infectious Grooves.  This on holds up pretty well.  It's riffy metal with great funky bass work.  There isn't that over the top silliness that ruins a lot of their work on Monster Skank.  Damn.  Trujio is a beast.  That guy is all over the place with his style but is pretty much a master at all of them.  

American Idiot - Green Day.  Meh.  They didn't deserve the critical nut swinging they got when this came out.  It's just okay.  Their first release is much…

Mind Blowing Authority - Sunday Shuffle

Authority Song - Jimmy Eat World.  This sounds like a warmed over 50's rock track.  Weezer and Pearl Jam have done it better.  It's weird that better bands that I like infinitely more, Sevendust for example, rarely get any of my music cash or regular spins but I almost always run out to buy a new Jimmy Eat World CD.  Jimmy pisses me of with regularity but I really like SOME of their songs.  Guess it's my optimistic nature.

It Blows My Mind - The Neptunes.  Snoop Dogg takes…

In The Ashes Of Revolution, A Baby Wishes For Cleansing Rain - Thursday Shuffle

I Wish It Would Rain Down - Phil Collins.    There is only one Phil Collins song that I don't like and that is a cover.  If I was Japanese I would call this song is super fantastic happy good.  If I was Mexican I would say Mi Gusto.  If I were gay I would lust after Phil.  Luckily I am none of those things so I am just going to grow a skullet in tribute to the man and his wonderful works.  This is one of his best songs by the way.

Do Me, Baby - Prince.  Nice, straight up…

Your Praise Is Like A Lounging Surprise Tainted With Poison - Wednesday Shuffle

Praise - Sevendust.  Soulful voices work well in rock.  Lajon has one of the best voices, soulful or not, in rock.   I have a lot of Sevendust on iTunes but never seek them out even though I know they should be among my favorite bands.  I'd be all in if it weren't for the occasional angry white guy rap.

 

Poison Apples.  I gave John Corabi a good ribbing the other day but I really like this song.  It sounds like Motley Crue with a good singer and Motley Crue definitely reaps…

All Of The Rockers Are Impressed With Her Back - Tuesday Shuffle.

The Impression That I Get - Mighty Mighty Bosstones.  I listened to this some frequency for a couple years following it's release.  In fact this album was a mainstay in my car for a long time.  I never really got bored with it, just stopped listening.  Hell, I would have kept up with the band if they just didnt fall off my radar.  Are they still together?

 

No Way Back - Foo Fighters.  I think Dave was going for Everlong Pt. 2 on this.  It's not quite there.  I do really like…

There Is a Ghost Driving On The Burning Road - Monday Shuffle.

I Drove All Night - Cyndi Lauper.  At this moment, I can not think of a better song in any genre from any era.  Cyndi's passion is on full display.  This isn't the ditzy air head from Girls Just Wanna Have Fun or She Bop.  She's a full fledged, complex woman.  She also has a great voice.  I love her.  

 

Ghost - Pearl Jam.  Riot Act sucks balls.  They were obviously just filling their obligation to Sony.  I don't really have much to say here.  It's boring and very unlike Pearl…

My Luck Mirrors Black Science From Time To Time - Sunday Shuffle

Rearviewmirror - Pearl Jam.  I mentioned the third best Pearl Jam driving song last week and, lo and behold, number one pops up.  Most of us have driven too fast while this was playing.  It builds in all the right spots and settles into a great "look out the window and process life" kinda mood.  I am going to go ahead and call this the all time best driving song.  I will entertain dissenting opinions but you gotta come with hard evidence to dissuade me.

Beautiful Bongos Are Filled With Dynamite - Wednesday Shuffle.

Dynamite Steps - Twilight Singers.  So glad this came up.  I just put this CD in the truck to listen to on my way to and from work.  It's been a couple months since I gave this album a hard listen.  I'm already pumped about the drive on Friday.  I read a review that called this an epic song but I kinda disagree.  It would need to be longer than 6:44 to be epic.  It's the perfect length for an excellent song.  Gush over I guess.

 

Mondo Bongo - Joe Strummer & The Mescaleros.…

The King's Angel Is More Fun Than Apollo - Tuesday Shuffle

Ain't No Fun (Waiting Around To Be Millionaires) - AC/DC.  Like a lot of Bon Scott era AC/DC, I think this is just okay.  I don't know, I just don't feel any affinity toward it.  Maybe it's because I was a little kid when it came out and never developed any kind of memory associated with it.  Oh well, it's not a bad song.  Not at all.  Maybe if I finger a fat chick while it's playing I would think more of it.
