“Home again, home again, jiggety-jig”. My dad used to recite that rhyme when we were kids and came home from a trip. Tonight I find myself in that very same headspace. It has been a short work week with two days of business travel slapped right in the middle. I am happy to be home with John and the dog and listening to some sweet tunes.
1. That’s the Way by Led Zeppelin. This song reminds me of my friend Mike. We used to hang out for hours on end talking and he’d play guitar and sing Zeppelin songs.
3. Future by Cut Copy. This track is from their first LP, Bright Like Neon Love. I made the Wordle below on the reviews for that album at Metacritic.com. Cut Copy wrapped up touring April. They’re back to Melbourne now and (hopefully) at work on another great album.
4. Killer Cars by Radiohead – Old Radiohead, new Radiohead. It is all good Radiohead. This is “Thom’s second song on a driving theme, this one deals with the fear that every time we venture out in our cars we may be killed. Originally intended for release as one of the singles from The Bends during the initial recording sessions, the song actually debuted in the band’s live set in 1993.” (via)
5. Crush with Eyeliner by R.E.M. I was in first year university when I had a “crush” on R.E.M.’s monster, which is according to Rolling Stone, “…a deeply felt, thematically coherent, consistently invigorating challenge to “evolve or die,” with all the courage of its convictions.”
