|Fun Lovin' Criminals - Crazy Train|
(Nov 05, 2005 - 18:58)
|this is great! my hubby is always cracking me up by singing odd hardcore songs in swing tempo. I guess he has brainwashed me...|
|Tom Waits - Singapore|
(Sep 16, 2005 - 15:48)
More like Captain Beefhart.
Hey, There's someone I haven't heard on RP! Anyone up for it?
Yeah, where the Beef ................. hart?
A little Zappa couldn't hurt either... something from Uncle Meat maybe.
|Camel - Rhayader|
(Sep 15, 2005 - 18:30)
sounds like early Frank Zappa without the sense of humour ....
yeah with less edge and more, I dunno, Prozac?
|The Cure - Fascination Street|
(Sep 15, 2005 - 18:17)
|The Cure was my first ever concert, I was 15 or 16 it was 1986 or so I think it was Radio City Music hall of all places. Me and my best friend had no Idea what to expect, we just listened to their albums by ourselves (I would load up on music on my trips to UK to stay w/my Dad), and when we got to the show it was one Giant Pulsing Black Ocean of Goths!, and us in our Esprit outfits! It was fun. ahh memories....|
|Heather Nova - Gloomy Sunday|

|mediocre cover, feeble.
The last verse is not original to the song,(to answer the hungarian a few posts back) Billie had to add them in order to lift the ban on this song. At the time of it's original realese people were leaping out of windows at an alarming rate.
|Rolling Stones - Let Me Down Slow|
(Sep 11, 2005 - 13:08)
Gawd, this is lame. Quick, play Moonlight Mile or something so I can remember the Stones when they weren't on autopilot!
"Autopilot" you hit the nail on the head.
|Madeleine Peyroux - Between The Bars|
(Sep 10, 2005 - 23:32)
|I adore Billie Holiday, and find it sad that someone would bother to do such a wholesale impersonation. The phrasing, everything a total rip off. Why not be original, especially when you have a decent enough voice? |
|Stranglers - Golden Brown|
(Sep 10, 2005 - 23:05)
|pretty much one of my fave songs. Even though I'm not doing smack, it does take me away, maybe it's the harpsichord.......|
|Cesaria Évora - Fior Di Nha Esperanca|
(Sep 10, 2005 - 13:50)
Love the voice. The background sounds a bit muddled, almost as if two things were being played on top of each other.
Yeah that's what I thought too. hmmmm
|Steely Dan - Aja|
(Sep 10, 2005 - 09:12)
From Steely Dan F.A.Q.
"With the core band recruited, Donald and Walter need(ed) a name for their group. Since both of them were avid readers of 1950's "Beat" literature, they decided to name the band "Steely Dan" after a dildo in William Burroughs' 'Naked Lunch.'"
that explains everything
|Hank Williams - Ramblin Man|
(Sep 10, 2005 - 08:35)
I kept waiting for Cab Calloway bust out with Hi-dee hi-dee hi-dee hi. 8-<

Right. Sometimes, "eclectic" actually means excluding
. And on another thread
, we're starting a list of genres to exclude. There are far, far too many genres included on this station.
From the dictionary

|The Police - Roxanne|
(Sep 07, 2005 - 17:42)
| fine, it's ok, but so many better songs on this album, let the FM DJs have this one and play I can't stand losing or So Lonely, maybe hey?|
|Miles Davis - Freddie Freeloader|
(Sep 06, 2005 - 18:43)
I don't listen to Miles Davis because he was a wife beater.
really! oh crap. mind you he would not be alone in the musician-as-lousy-mate department.
gee, my buzz has been killed :(
|Paddy Milner - Unsquare Dance|
(Sep 05, 2005 - 16:40)

|Leo Kottke - World Turning|
(Sep 05, 2005 - 16:00)
|I like this re-do. FM is all over the regular radio and in nearly everyones collection somewhere, so thanks RD|
|UB40 - Kingston Town|
(Sep 05, 2005 - 15:39)
|there are some great UB40 tracks out there, but I've never heard them stateside.|
|K.D. Lang - Helpless|
(Sep 05, 2005 - 15:16)
|nice, but too sing songy for me. I like the origial better. KD's voice is too rich&luxe for this I think. maybe it'll grow on me too.|
|U2 - Love And Peace Or Else|
(Sep 05, 2005 - 14:25)
|I haven't really listened to U2 since I was a teen in the 80's and I just picked up this album and I really like it. maybe I'm all old now, but I have to say I had a good time with this album. |
