Greetings from Nashville. Back with a long set of music for today's shuffle. So, no more ado about nothing....
Shuffle will follow the.... Might as well.... Jump!
The Gunbunnies were a sadly short-lived band from Arkansas. The released one album for Virgin Records, the now out of print Paw Paw Patch. A collection of outtakes was released in 2009 and is available from Amazon - I'll link to that below. I could not find a video of today's song Little Drops of Water - so I will post a video for the college radio hit Stranded. Little Drops of Water is the only song from today's shuffle not included on the widget of clips above.
How about some Sly and the Family with Run, Run, Run from their 1967 debut A Whole New Thing.
Look Sharp! It's Pretty Girls from Joe Jackson's 1979 debut.
Next up is the Balancing Act with This is Where it all Begins which was on the album Three Squares and a Roof.
How about some Christmas music - Sufjan Stevens with Ding-a-ling-a-ring-a-ling from the Christmas extravaganza Silver and Gold.
Shelly Colvin is a Nashville singer-songwriter, she was a Featured Artist recently and we got to attend her CD release a little while back. We have Nine Rose Rock from her debut CD. No video was found for Nine Rose Rock - so check out this video featuring Shelly Colvin.
The Hunting Accident are a cool alt-rock band from Los Angeles. We made them Band of the Week back in 2011. Here we have the fabulous Jack Trap.
Blitzen Trapper with Dragon's Song which is on the album Destroyer of the Void.
A classic track from The Jam. Mr. Clean is on the legendary band's album All Mod Cons - one of my all-time favorites. "..I hate you and your wife..."
Okay, so the band fIREHOSE, which is the band featuring Watt and Hurley from the Minutemen along with Ed "fROMOHIO" Crawford released an album called If'n. This is a song called If'n which is not on the album called If'n but rather on the album called fROMOHIO. Got it?
And finally, the rousing and powerful lead track from Miles Davis' soundtrack to the Louis Malle film classic Ascenseur Pour l'Echafaud (Elevator (or Lift) to the Gallows). Generique features incessantly beautiful trumpet work from Mr. Davis.
