Song before: The Man With The Child In His Eyes – Kate Bush
From our small city to the great big world, these are the Sounds Of Burlington. Today is my birthday so I’m going to celebrate by playing some of my favorite songs. I hope you like them too. If your band is not on tonight’s play list, it’s not that I don’t love you, it’s just I had two hours to pick music and I love far more than two hours worth. Every song on tonight’s list is one that I love.
1.) Angle Of The Sun – Peg Tassey 2.) Megan’s Song – Hana Zara 3.) Feel The Bern – Violint Wednesday 4.) Giving Up The Ghost – Aaron Flinn
Aaron is such a great guitar player and such a great guy and has a great voice and I love that song. The Bern song has really gotten to me. I love how easy to sing it is. Hana is just stunning and that is such a touching song. Peg has been one of my favorites for a long time and that is such a beautiful song, on so many levels. OK, it’s time for the next song on Callisto.
5.) Been So Long – Alpenglow 6.) Brothers And Sisters – Joe Adler 7.) Sober – Vedora 8.) Release The Beast – The Mountain Says No
I remember thinking that was the greatest song I had ever heard by Mountain when I first heard it. Now I feel that way about their newer songs that will be on their next album, but since it’s not recorded yet I had to play Beast. Vedora used to play Sober a lot when they played shows after the first album came out. I’m glad they got that one onto the second album. I love the huge sound. Brothers always just fills my heart with love. I want to send that one out to my brother Ken. That’s such a cool song from Alpenglow. It’s been fun hearing them evolve. So, on Tuesday night I went over to The Monkey House and saw four great bands. I loved the sets from Tyler Daniel Bean and Better Things. The Path opened the night with a killer punk set. The other band who played are one that I have come to just love. They come around once or twice a year and always play a blistering show. I love every song on their new album and want to showcase them a bit right now. Thanks for everything Slingshot Dakota!!
9.) Paycheck – Slingshot Dakota 10.) Until The Day I Die – Slingshot Dakota 11.) I-78 – Slingshot Dakota 12.) Break – Slingshot Dakota
I love the new album and that song especially. When I first saw them I got a CD single with Day and 78 run together and still love those songs. It’s like the idea of love flowing into the practice of love. Paycheck is such a great song. I was so psyched when they opened with it. OK, let’s play a great rock and roll song.
13.) Little French Earthquakes – Phil Yates and the Affiliates 14.) Satellite – Guster 15.) Sparks – The Color Exchange 16.) The Next Instead – Swale
I love so many of Swale;s songs. Picking one was hard, but Next always gets me going. Color came to town and played Nectar’s one night a year or so ago. I’ve loved Sparks ever since. Ryan Miller from Guster keeps turning up at cool local events. Satellite is such a great song. I love how it sounds back to back with Sparks. Earthquakes always rocks me. I’m beginning to really like a lot of songs on Binger’s new album, but this one from their last EP always lights me up.
17.) Sequoia 3 – Binger 18.) Symptom Of The Universe – Surf Sabbath 19.) Bulletproof Vest – Zola Turn 20.) Orange Like Water – The Cush
I was lucky enough to see The Cush many times when they lived in Vermont. That is from their most recent album and it’s great to know they are still making great music and I can’t wait until the next time they are able to come back and enchant us. I’ve always loved Zola and wanted to play Vest because it rocks so hard. I love The High Breaks and their rearranged Sabbath songs are just wonderful. Hmmm Binger. Keep writing those great words and playing that great music. This is a great song from one of the most elegantly powerful bands to come out of Burlington.
21) Somewhere Far – The Red Telephone 22.) Breathing In – The Hero Cycle 23.) 1965 – The New Siberians 24.) These Summer Nights – Sarah Blacker
We are on the cusp of summer and that one always reminds me of beautiful summer nights. I’m 51 today and was born in 1965. Hero are a band I caught a couple times in their short incarnation and love the sweep of their songs. I love a lot of Telephone songs but that one was just calling to me. On Monday, the Dirty Blondes are playing at Nectar’s. I love them because they rock so hard.
25.) Ornan’s Song – Dirty Blondes 26.) TFAY – Elephants Of Scotland
I love that Elephant’s song. Ornan plays drums for both bands. I hope you enjoyed checking out the music of our town. Let’s do it again next week. Bye. See Ya. Sayonara.
27.) Sayonara – Black Rabbit
Songs after: Garden Party/Market Square Heroes – Marillion
Tantalized – The Church
