Angels And God Promised Fringes - Thursday Shuffle

Summer Angel - Minus The Bear.  Really great band.  Reminds me of Ben Folds but with a little more punch.  


Too Late Too Late - Metallica.  Metallica covering Motorhead is a can't fail scenario.

Higher Than God - King's…

See The Young Pink Glued and Crucified - Wednesday Shuffle

Unglued - Stone Temple Pilots.  hmmm, I like it enough but don't love it.  It's been a while since I've listened.  Seems a lot simpler than I remember. 


Pink & Blue - Outkast.  Love it.  It's nothing like rap or jazz or pop or anything else but remains stellar.


Crucified - Sevendust.  Animosity might be my favorite Sevendust album.  I can do without the angry white guy rapping though.  


Now You See It (Now You Don't) - Ozzy Osbourne.  The…

Afraid Of Shine And Rust And Light - Tuesday Shuffle.

Shine - Sevendust.  Probably my favorite Sevendust song.  Soulful, melodic, hard driving.  I say "soulful" because that's what you're supposed to say when the singer is black but don't want to appear racist.


Keep The Light On - Jerry Cantrell.  This one hasnt popped up in ages.  Forgot how much I like it.  Boggy Depot really is good, top to bottom.  


Are We Afraid - Toad The Wet Sprocket.  Sappy bullshit that I could do without right now.  Whiny crap that guys…

A Tale Of God's Heart Breaking Hubris. Thursday Shuffle.

Heartbreaker - Pat Benatar.  No no no.  Pat doesnt have any definable voice talent and isn't good looking but people love her.  I'm among those people.  Good song!


Ten Speed (Of God's Blood & Burial) - Coheed & Cambria.  It's been a while since I've had C&C show up.  Love it!  This song is as good as any they've put out.  Too bad about their druggy bassist.  Bassists in any band should be able to afford all the smack they need.  


Hubris - Ice…

Susie's Dead. DOA. Kicked the bucket. Hit with a bullet. Tuesday Shuffle.

DOA - Foo Fighters.  Damn fine rock song.  Somehow the Foo Fighters have remained one of my favorite bands for 15 years.  Great rock songs mixed with really progressive tracks does it.


Bullet With Butterfly Wings - Smashing Pumpkins.  Here's a great example of the opposite.  Loved me some Smashing Pumpkins in the mid 90's but they've continually put out shit.  Too busy being weird for the sake of being weird it seems.  This song isnt the greatest on the album but it's…

Things You See On The Right Side Of The Pillow - Monday Shuffle

The Right Side Of My Mind - Queensryche.  Recent Geoff Tate is an annoying vocalist.  He tries too hard.  Boring, predictable, meh.


Pillow - Queensryche.  I may be progged out.  This one is too plodding, not enough direction.


The Perfect County And Western Song - David Alan Coe.  Thank goodness.  It's like a lemon sherbet.  Cleaned the palate nicely.  It really is the best country and western song if you were curious.


See You - Dinosaur Jr.  I…

Please Grace, Harvest The Monkey - Wednesday Shuffle

Falling Into Grace - Red Hot Chili Peppers.  RHCP were at one time my favorite band.  These days it's sounding dated and uninspired.  Guess my new hipster is trying to push out my old hipster.  Nostalgia has few merits.  


Please Stay (Once You Go) - Twilight Singers.  A Marvin Gaye cover.  The Twilight Singers produced an equal version.  Not better but every bit as good.  


S.M.F. - Twisted Sister.  A failed shot at an anthem.  The production is shitty and the…

Never Loved Television Years - Tuesday Shuffle

Silent All These Years - Tori Amos.  I'd totally sniff any piano bench she uses.  She grinds her special place with skill.  Her scent has to be infused.  This song is nice too.


Throw Away Your Television.  The shittiest song on By The Way.  Total filler.  The oi oi oi part is a rage sparker.


Be Good To Yourself - Journey.  It is most definitely not a greatest hit, Journey.  At best, it's an stained tie that only matches one suit in the closet but you kinda…

Think About Your Damaged Savior - Monday Shuffle.

Damage Case - Metallica.  Most obvious display in the catalog of Newsted's considerable talents.  It's a shame that Metallica's best album of the 90's was a bunch of covers.


My Favorite Things - Outkast.  I really miss experimental rap.  Andre and Q-Tip were the best at this kind of stuff.  Andre takes the edge because he used actual instruments in the arrangements.  This song is a bit too jazzy but the beat works.


Your Savior - Temple Of The Dog.  After a new…

Good Girl Dies, On The Way To Heaven - Sunday Shuffle.

RV - Faith No More.  Would anyone tell me if I was getting stupider?  I like to think that yes, someone would tell me.  This is a great example of being experimental and progressive without being too weird.


Good Girl - The Neptunes/Vanessa Marquez.  She must have been blowing Pharrell.  Her voice is almost okay.  The song is barely dancing on the edge of tolerable.  Meh.


Something Happened On The Way To Heaven - Phil Collins.  Hot damn!  A vastly underrated PC…

Choked Voices Follow You Away - Thursday Shuffle.

Follow You Down - Twilight Singers.  The Twilight Singers are playing Blackberry Belle in it's entirety at a gig in San Francisco.  SUPER stoked to be lucky enough to get a ticket today.  This song has the makings of being an epic.  Kinda like that it was left short.


I Could Die For You - Red Hot Chili Peppers.  Always dug this song.  It's different enough but not annoyingly different.


So Far Away - Dire Straights.  Always thought this was more of a country…

Mick's Best Totem Is Crying - Wednesday Shuffle

Cry Tough - Poison.  They played this when I saw them a couple of weeks ago.  Great song.  Bret kept is mouth shut for the most part so it was a better than average show.


Totem - Rush.  Hippy bullshit song but still enjoyable because of it's Rush.  Very bass heavy and chorus-y.


Mick - Dinosaur Jr.  One of my favorites from these guys.  Kinda shoe gazing vibe to start but rock kicks in nicely.


True Colors - Phil Collins.  I almost always love…

Bukowski Is On Fire In Hell - Tuesday Shuffle

On Fire - Van Halen.  Haven't heard this in forever.  Damn fine bass playing by Michael Anthony.  Fun song.


Bukowski - Modest Mouse.  Great combination of banjo, recorder and bass strings that's not used nearly enough.  Seriously.  This almost like an artsier Primus song.


1985 - Bowling For Soup.  I hate this fucking song.  It gets a skip.  An angry skip at that.


Are You With Me Now - Sixx A.M.  Good enough pop rock song.  It may be too emo for…

Hot Hats Hate Sorrow - Monday Shuffle

Harvester Of Sorrow - Metallica.  The seeds of the Black album right here.  Even at that, still superior in every way.  


Hate You - King's X.  Hate is such a strong word guys.  How about a little compassion?  Not feeling the plodding stuff today.


Hats Off - Primus.  Les Claypool sings in a perfect southern accent.  It's kinda weird for a California boy to have it down so masterfully.  Good enough song.


Have It All - Foo Fighters.  One By One is…

Night Deep With Rain - Friday Shuffle.

Ain't Even Done With The Night - John Mellencamp.  It took every bit of self control I could muster to not type Cougar in his name.  This song is too poppy for my preference.  


Too Deep - J. Mascis.  Too sparse.  The guitar is simple, I think I could play it.  Not what I want when J. is playing.  Forced.  Meh.


Sunshine Rain - King's X.  Another slow jam.  Why can't I be more mopie and enjoy this stuff.  Wait a second, it's picking up a bit.  Got a little…

Mama is Outside Dedicating The Park - Thursday Shuffle

Just The Way You Are - Billy Joel.  Up until a couple of weeks ago I liked most Billy Joel songs.  Some switch flipped and I've had an irrational, seething hatred of this man lately.  Seriously, I dwell on my dislike of Billy Joel more than is healthy.


Dedicate It - The Afghan Whigs.  Good enough for a pre-major label release song but I rarely seek it out.


Lakeside Park - Rush.  Tim Horton's is pretty much Dunkin Donuts.  I guess it's important for the…

Bathroom Business With An Alibi

Monkey Business - Skid Row.  Minus the bluesy break in the middle this is a solid metal song.  Heavy bass, rockin' solo.  


When Doves Cry - Prince & The Revolution.  It's a classic.  Nuff said..


Doctor Alibi - Slash w/ Lemmy.  I have never disliked a song sung by Lemmy.  That Slash solo album is good stuff.


Squealer - ACDC.  This has been on my ipod for a while but never listened to it.  I prefer Brian Johnson as my ACDC singer.  Guess I…

Big Confrontations Alone - Tuesday Shuffle

The Big Picture - King's X.  It's King's X.  Of course I like it.  It's okay of you don't like it as much as I do.  C'est La Vive!  (Oh, and fuck you)


If This Is It - Huey Lewis & The News.  Hot damn.  It's a little blue-eyed soul with a dash of cheesy doo-wop.  No complaints.


Summer Land - King's X.  Well shit.  I hate it when two songs from the same band show up in a shuffle.  Even at that I don't hate it all that much.  It is King's X after…

My fucking iPod has disappeared, there are no speakers on the computer that hosts iTunes.  On top of that, the syncing to the Google and Amazon clouds are woefully incomplete.  Gonna let it upload overnight tonight.  Ugh.
