Yes, I even bought some songs from I-tunes I liked pretty much on a quiet evening after work hearing them on RP. Now, listening to them always makes me ask: WHY??? Is there a special atmosphere coming with RP?
Yeah, absolutely there is! That's what building a set is all about. Try making playlists within iTunes that mix the songs in a way that they make sense to you. I have a list of driving songs, songs that remind me of someone I miss, etc. Drumming songs. Sleeping songs.

H = Hagar (Sammy)

Though not a LedZep fan that was my first imprssion too. After my first listen, I was very impressed.
It's an 8 for sure. I didn't mean to imply that I don't like it! It's like eating something that tastes different than what you expected. Like the first time that I drank flavored water. It made my brain get tangled up.
I just want to hear little Bobby Plant warbling, "Close the door..."

|Wait a second...this was different. Where was the little solo in the middle bit? Is this the authentic version?|

|I LOVE THIS!!
The studio version of this from "Where'd You Hide the Body?" moves a bit faster, and Robert Earl Keene does an ok cover...
I've always said that James does in 3:30 seconds what his dad does in 330 pages.
|Foo Fighters - Everlong|
(Mar 29, 2008 - 11:51)
|I hate it when you guys fight on the boards.
I love Foo Fighters but I don't love when they dip into commercially sounding "modern rock" - like this. Still, I think Dave Grohl is great and FF is a terrific band. Now stop fighting. You're upsetting the children.
|Phil Keaggy - We Can Work It Out|
(Mar 28, 2008 - 22:00)
The Lyrics have dated metality-"you do it my way or else we break up."
Where's the compromise? Where's the reality, maturity?
Suck it, Trebek!
|The Decemberists - Summersong|

|I like this band. I sort of thought he was singing:
"My girl, all Lennon in curls
Lips parting like a flag along on fur
Cheese grand, the bend of her hand
Digging deep into the sweep of the sand
Inside her arrives with a lengthful eye
Inside her blows away and quietly gets swallowed by a whale"
|Citizen Cope - Son's Gonna Rise|
(Mar 24, 2008 - 19:37)
A resounding "Meh." from me, give me Everlast anytime over this crap.
Every time I hear this (WXPN plays it often'ish) I think it's Everlast. I like this song. But I always hope that this time it's Everlast.
|James - Laid|

|"...but she only cums when she's on the top."
I was playing this in the record store I used to work at and I decided to actually listen to the lyrics one day and went, "Holy shi*. Can I play that in the store?!" The deed was done. I let it play on :-)
"You think you're so pretty" - I've heard that line before, or something close it. Anyone have ideas?
|Dean & Britta - Words You Used to Say|

okay then...it's not.
I, on the other hand, excitedly went "Ooo. That sounds like Hope-Whats-Her-Name from Mazzy Star!!"

|Given the beat and the album art, the ONLY logical segue to this is something from T. Rex!

|Elvis Costello - Pump It Up|

|When Diana Krall was on tour in Juneau, Alaska I was her driver. She totally rode in MY CAR. That was before Elvis was on the scene. I took her to JCPenney's to buy shoes. Her guitar player, Russell was cruising with me one afternoon and we got pulled over because my car had a loud exhaust.
Oh yeah, and I like this song. I almost forgot.
|DJ Schmolli - God's Gonna Cut You Down|
(Nov 26, 2007 - 15:37)
|I like it. Oddly enough, I was just thinking about requesting this from Bill (the Orb tune reminded me of it). I heard it once before and emailed DJ Schmolli about it.
WXPN has been playing worse attempts at mash-ups.
|U2 - Desire|
(Jun 04, 2007 - 11:50)
When I hear that clanging intro I try to time the "yeah!", but can never quite get it...
That "yeah" is one of the best exclamations in rock along with Lennon's "Ahhhhhh" towards the end of Ticket To Ride and Deborah Harry's "Woo!" in Dreaming.
|World Party - Love is Best|
(May 24, 2007 - 12:10)
Tracy Chapman with backup?
I did have to listen to the first few lines to see if it was World Party covering "For My Lover"(?) by Tracy Chapman. The melody is similar in spots.

I always think that it's "Stupid Girl" or Folk Implosion.

|Bob Dylan - Don't Think Twice, It's All Right|
(May 09, 2007 - 10:50)
Great song - I highly recommend the Susan Tedeschi version of this gem.
There are many great versions of this song - but Bobby D. still does it the best. One of the few of his I can enjoy because I like how he sings it, not just because I like trying to sound like him while it's playing :-)">

The more I here this the more I like it.
Everytime I hear this I want to hear "Lucas With The Lid Off" right after it.
|John Lennon - Remember|
(May 08, 2007 - 12:34)
This album is one of the finest ever produced: raw, primal, powerful and devastating. If you don't end up in tears listening to it, then you have no heart.
Definitely. It's chilling and crushing. I've never heard a more powerful, more personal album. Tom Waits sometimes makes me think that maybe he's in grand torment, but he writes SO MANY songs like that, that I can't tell what might be real and what are character sketches aside from the obvious.
|John Lennon - Remember|
(May 08, 2007 - 11:09)
Nailed it! Good observation!
Not something I ever need to be reminded of. But Lennon is always welcome at my ears.

|Oh me oh my oh
Would you look at Miss Ohio?
And I still love the Birthday song more than any other song. Except maybe the Cigar song.
