Fleetwood Mac - The Chain (Feb 02, 2012 - 10:29) Wow— Gillian Welch "Scarlet Town" lead into this one beautifully! Way to go, Bill.
Morphine - Buena (Sep 29, 2011 - 12:57) i just can't get into Morphine. Every time Bill plays one of their jams, i can't help but scowl...
Crowded House - Into Temptation (Sep 28, 2011 - 09:18) I love it that RP plays a good amount of Crowded House and Neil Finn— His lyrics are stunners and his voice, beautiful

Yes, she was very talented. She recorded a version of the song
Will You Still Love Me Tomorrow
for one of the Bridget Jones movies. When co-writer Gerry Goffin heard her version, he was so moved he cried.
Here's that version:
Charlie Sexton - Beat's So Lonely (Sep 24, 2010 - 12:45) ha! man, i haven't heard this in years. I used to love it, but now it sounds so overproduced and silly. Still, Charlie is an amazing musician, and being from Austin, I'll stand up for him any day!
Old 97s - Dance With Me (Mar 12, 2010 - 12:10) i agree with several of the comments below. I absolutely LOVE the Old 97's, but this song just isn't their best. Sorta boring and formulaic— in my meager opinion But please play more Old 97's in general— yay!
Bob Dylan - It's Alright, Ma (I'm Only Bleeding) (Sep 15, 2009 - 09:50) i hardly ever leave negatiive feedback about songs, and when I do, I try to keep to diplomatic. But this song is driving me crazy!! SUCKO- BARFO!! dylan has many great songs, but this one suxx.
Old 97s - Broadway (Sep 09, 2009 - 09:10) RIGHT ON!!!!! LOVE LOVE LOVE OLD 97's and LOVE this song especially!! The whole album is amazing. MORE OLD 97's on RP pleeeze!
Old 97's - Jagged (Jun 30, 2009 - 13:33) LOVE LOVE LOVE the Old 97's!! I agree that RP needs to play a lot more of them. Also, they're one of the BEST live acts you'll ever have the pleasure to see
Janis Joplin - Summertime (Jun 16, 2009 - 13:16) love love love this song! always have ever since I was a kid. thanks janis! way to go

the whole album kicks ass. totally.
ABSOLUTELY! I love this ablum so much, too. My dad has it and plays it every sunday announcing "time to go to church!" heh... Not that my dad has ever gone to church in his life, but listening to this record while rocking on the porch is spiritual for him :)
Seal - Human Beings (Apr 16, 2009 - 13:26) ha! yeah the cover is weird! handyrae wrote:
Love the song. The album cover creeps me out though.
U2 - Bullet the Blue Sky (Apr 16, 2009 - 13:23) SO TRUE!! chirpie wrote: It's not about how many notes, it's not about skill, it's about emotion. There's more than one way to enjoy a song. snowcat wrote: One of the best statements ever made on a song review forum.
U2 - Bullet the Blue Sky (Apr 16, 2009 - 13:21) GAH! so much crappy negativity on this board! chill out people I know day jobs suck, and sitting alone in front of your computer at 2am sucks too, but that's what blogs are for... music is good stuff. Haters Relaaaax

Wow I havent heard this in years! Reminds me of giant latte mugs and folk music in the coffee house. Ahhh...memories...
Talk Talk - Living in Another World (Feb 19, 2009 - 10:58) Talk Talk is great. They really rise above a lot of other 80's stuff that hasn't aged as well. And the singer's voice is always so instantly recognizable and cool
James - Laid (Feb 19, 2009 - 10:11) LOVE LOVE LOVE this song!!! I could listen to it everyday and never get tired . So many great memories, and a wonderful feeling/ energy coming out of the sound~
Patty Griffin - Heavenly Day (Feb 12, 2009 - 08:42) fantastic song, amazing lady. Even the album cover is great! Makes me proud to be from Austin
Sting - Mad About You (Feb 11, 2009 - 12:03) okay Sting may be kind of a goof, but I still really like this song... 8!
10,000 Maniacs - Trouble Me (Feb 04, 2009 - 14:43) i used to fall asleep listening to this on my walkman all the time as a gradeschooler...
Neko Case - Deep Red Bells (Jan 29, 2009 - 11:57) LOVE LOVE LOVE this song! My boyfriend put it on a mix for me and I would just play it over and over~ the dark story behind the song matches the sound of it all perfectly
Old 97s - The New Kid (Jan 28, 2009 - 12:20) Finally some Old 97's on RP! yaaaay! not my first pick from them, but SO happy to hear em nonetheless! Thanks Bill
Aimee Mann - Save Me (Jan 25, 2009 - 11:10) I'm always so happy when this song comes on RP— thanks Bill!
Lucinda Williams - Can't Let Go (Jan 05, 2009 - 12:33) I agree, Great Album!! toterola wrote:
This is probably Lucinda's best album. The song "Drunken Angel" off this disc is partially about Townes Van Zandt, who was an old and dear friend to her and the other half of "The Twang Trust", Steve Earle.
If you like your rock and roll "Dixie Fried", this album is for you.
Chris Isaak - One Day (Nov 13, 2008 - 12:26) Chris Isaak, is fabulous! I own just about every album and they are all great!! Live shows are always a really awesome time too
John Hiatt - Walk On (live) (Nov 13, 2008 - 12:00) I think John Hiatt is great! I dont' understand why so many people get off on writing dumb, super-negative stuff on this board. If it's not for you, no prob, just give it a low rating. I don't love everything on RP, but I sure dig most of it! And John HIatt is an artist lots of people DO like very much
Ween - Falling Out (Nov 04, 2008 - 12:01) ween is great! amazing musicians first and foremost
Radiohead - I Might Be Wrong (Oct 14, 2008 - 14:25) romeotuma wrote: This band is loaded with great songs... and this one is one of their best... Gosh, I couldn't disagree more. I love radiohead, but I just DO NOT like this song at all!! But for sure, everyone's entitled :)

Aimee Mann - High On Sunday 51 (Feb 05, 2008 - 12:32) never really listened to Amy's songs before RP... and I love them all! thanks again for givin' me another great discovery Bill!
Tom Waits - Little Drop of Poison (Jan 22, 2008 - 15:01) i don't love every waits song I hear, but this one made me run to the RP site to find out the title and album! maybe it's the saw? is that a saw?? ha~ anywayz, great tune
Gogol Bordello - Dub The Frequencies Of Love (Jan 10, 2008 - 10:20) hey, good timing...I've been wanting to cehck this band out. Thanks RP for continuing to expose me to interesting new sounds as well as playing some old faves! :)
Ramones - I Wanna Live (Oct 02, 2007 - 13:34) wow-- cool selection Bill! I'm pleasantly surprised to hear this on RP-- neat!

Sniff 'n' The Tears - Driver's Seat (Dec 12, 2006 - 11:03) man, you guys are a bunch of stick in the muds! this is a good song and fun to listen to... lighten up and just enjoy the jams!
... nobody likes a wannabe critic :)
Chuck Prophet - Pin A Rose On Me (Nov 09, 2006 - 10:39) i first heard this one on RP and downloaded it that day. Since then I've listened to it like 100 times. Thanks for turning me on to another great song Bill!!
Old 97s - Broadway (Oct 13, 2006 - 12:21) Just had to RUN over to my computer to rate this one a 10!! I LOVE Old 97's and am SO happy to hear them on RP-- THANKS BILL!
PS they are AMAZING live! if you ever get a chance to see them play-- GO. you won't be disappointed. they give it all to ya!
Third World - 96 Degrees In The Shade (Oct 01, 2006 - 16:59) GOD! the haters below need to pull the sticks out of their butts and CHILL OUT already!

Guster - The Captain (Sep 22, 2006 - 13:10) gosh, second time I've heard a good song on RP, rushed to the computer to see who it is, and it's been GUSTER! Guess i should go buy the album...

And all the flamers amaze me. They aren't worth responding to, leave it at that. The rest of us will just go right on knowing how much we lost with that helicopter crash. I heard him play Voodoo Chile last friday on an Austin FM station, my fav SRV song of all time, and I just had to go right in and listen to all 5 live recordings I have of it. It's good enough for me and I don't give a rat's ass what any of you idiots say. He was the best there was and Double Trouble were the perfect mirror to reflect his light.
Pink Floyd - Us & Them -> Eclipse (Sep 19, 2006 - 13:18) no thanks.
the best thing about Pink Floyd was my dad unfolding the Dark Side of the Moon album cover and putting it behind our family fish aquarium when i was a kid to create a psychedelic background for our fish!
Gary Jules - Mad World (Sep 19, 2006 - 13:11) First heard this version while watching Donnie Darko and was struck by the amazingly effective interpretation... very nice cover!!
Big Country - In A Big Country (Sep 18, 2006 - 13:02) man, great song... whether coasting down the road in my home state of TX, dancing the night away at Coney Island High in NYC, or rocking out here in the middle of a work day, this song is always a fun and welcome delight.
Big Head Todd & The Monsters - Bittersweet (Aug 31, 2006 - 09:39) all you haters below clearly haven't had the good fortunate to be driving out to the lake with the top down and had this song come on. It's an awesome driving song and always makes me feel great (and nostalgic) when I hear it.
Sundays - Wild Horses (Aug 31, 2006 - 08:49) this is a great cover and a beautiful song... haters wake up!

Who can forget Cruise and Rebecca DeMornay on the Chicago El as this sublimely atmospheric piece fills the soundtrack? It also reminds me of my time living in NYC. Hardly gets more evocative than this.
ABSOLUTELY! couldn't agree more. What a surprise to turn on RP and here this... very cool indeed.

Oingo Boingo - Just Another Day (May 24, 2006 - 14:36) SUCH A GREAT SONG!! never gets as much play as Dead Man's Party or Weird Science but just as good if not better-- thanks RP!

Mark Knopfler - Shangri-La (Aug 02, 2005 - 13:45) I have to give a big thanks to RP (yet again) for introducing (or in this case, re-introducing) me to great artists. This song is so great-- i love it! ran right out and got the album.
Billy Idol - Lady Do or Die (Aug 02, 2005 - 13:42) Wow, I had no idea this was the "new" Billy Idol! I love it! What a great, cool sounding song.... nice comeback billy!
Jesse Cook - Cancion Triste (Aug 02, 2005 - 13:32) Thanks so much RP for introducing me to the music of Jesse Cook! I've bought his album, Vertigo, for myself and just about everyone I know-- we all adore it!
