Just a heads up... there will not be a Morning Music Shuffle tomorrow. Plan accordingly... So this will be the last shuffle of the week, and we have a good one...
"I'm Sorry (But So is Brenda Lee)" by Marshall Crenshaw
One of the best songwriters of all time - from his album Downtown referencing Little Miss Dynamite and one of her best known songs.
"Cry Baby Cry" by Richard Barone
Richard Barone covers the Beatles in spectacular fashion with this track from his groundbreaking live album Cool Blue Halo.
"So. Central Rain" by R.E.M.
This is the final track we have to present from R.E.M.'s second album, Reckoning. Some sources add a subtitle to this song ("I'm Sorry") which coincidently references back to the first song in the shuffle..
"I Have to Leave" by Warren Zevon
Given David Letterman's fondest for Warren Zevon, I kind of see this song as Ear to the Ground's way of saying "goodbye".
"War 150" by Tom Schreck
From his album Save Your Glory... another excellent song from the Nashville Outsider himself...
"Home in the Heart of the Beat" by Beat Rodeo
The title track to the second album by Steve Almaas and company. "Johnny 1, Johnny 2, Johnny 3..."
"Fake Roses" by The Lone Bellow
Modern country music from Brooklyn New York.. off their latest album, Then Came the Morning..."Currency of Love" by Joseph Arthur
I got to see Joseph Arthur performing and painting early in April at the Safety Harbor song festival. This song is from his album, The Ballad of Boogie Christ.
"Flew a Falcon" by Richard Barone
Our second track of the day from Cool Blue Halo! A gorgeous song.
"Flaring Up" by Ricky Mirage
The lead track from Pop Goes the Sun...
"Haywire" by Aztec Camera
One of three bonus tracks added to the 1991 CD release of High Land, Hard Rain - the 1983 debut by Roddy Frame and company.
"Drop Your Bucket" by Brock Zeman
I had the pleasure of seeing and meeting Brock Zeman last week at the Bluebird Café. This is a song from his latest album, Pulling Your Sword Out of the Devil's Back. Check out his music, and if you get the chance to see him live - don't miss it.
