Weekend Download Recommendations: Stormy Weather, Bad Moon Rising And A Hurricane Named Irene
Luckily, we’re not expecting a weekend out of a Charley Patton song where 1% of people will be homeless on the morrow. Hopefully no levees will break and no water will done creep through any towns, but we’ll just have to while away our time with some crooning, some CCR, and a little Case. I’ll try to use some considerable words in this article in case any readers are stuck in the middle of a game of scrabble
Weekend Download Recommendations: Getting Ready For School With The Jackson 5, Van Halen And Pink Floyd
Whether or not most of you will admit this, the days of our youth spent in school are some of the most important in our lives.
Weekend Download Recommendations: Millions Of Peaches, Fruit That's Not Fruit And A Tomato Emperor
In honor of Jani Lane and “Cherry Pie,” this Weekend Download Recommendations is a shout out to recent babies named after pulpy substances. It’s a shout out to all youngn’s with blackberry juice on their faces and homeless men scurrying around service berry trees. Fruit is great, even when it’s a mess of mash on the sidewalk. The bands who support fruit are even better.
Weekend Download Recommendations: Green Onions, Dirty Deeds And Black Betty
I always picture Wily E Coyote with an overly confident grin listening to “Misty Mountain Hop” while concocting a giant slingshot to catch roadrunner. I always picture Wilt Chamberlain in a bizarrely colored suit listening to “Black Dog” while bedding several eights one after the other in some creepy VIP room. And I always picture Led Zeppelin themselves in some sort of tour montage climbing the stairs to get on a plane in some strange city with hundred dollar bills hanging out of one pocket, flasks filled with expensive liquor hanging out of the other
Weekend Download Recommendations: Mars Volta, Kid Cudi, Moody Blues And Kay Kay's Weathered Underground
For how subjective experiencing the moon and stars for each person is, there’s still one unifying similarity that always brings most of us together. Music is the bounding element to our lives, and as day turns to night, our close relationship with songs, albums, and music videos is inseparable.
Weekend Download Recommendations: Green Muppets, Green Albums And Islander Goal Celebrations
I’m kind of over theme. In true slacker inspiration, I’ll just bitch about how hard it is to get married to a topic. A lot of times themes are totally regrettable, like the time when a storyteller at my local public library tried to do a goat theme. Once you get past Billy Goats Gruff and some other stupid counting books, there’s just facts. How exciting are goat facts?
Weekend Download Recommendations: Wonka, Wild Covers And Working It Out
In eighth grade, I loved really loved arena rock songs like the aforementioned “Taking Care Of Business” and Lynyrd Skynyrd's “Sweet Home Alabama”. Then, at some point, I got too cool for school and started listening to the Velvet Underground and John Lennon's angry early solo records. I still listen to Lou Reed talk about “Heroin” as his wife and Lennon scream about bullshit gurus in “I Found Out”, but after high school, I actually fell in love with sappy rock all over again
Weekend Download Recommendations: Casey Anthony Inspires Wu-Tang Clan, Beatles, Black Keys, And More
Delving into astrology and the enlightenment we can achieve from Jupiter and Mars aligning, they sang about some fairly wacked out stuff, but damnit do I love this song. Nothing speaks inner happiness and peace like “Let the Sunshine In.”
Weekend Download Recommendations: Peas, Petty, Ween, Radiohead And More
Amongst our own writers here at Pop Blend, we can’t even got on the same page, but with so much music being released at any given time, it’s still worthwhile knowing what others are listening to. At least that’s the theory behind our all-new column Weekend Download Recommendations. Every Sunday, one of our writers will give you three albums, three singles and a music video they’ve been listening to. Love it, hate it, think it’s okay, at least you’ll be aware of its existence
