Baby's Born to Run

Added on by C. Maoxian.

Love the sound … Pacific Northwest hipster central (casting). Major bonus points for the clarinetist.

Chrysanthemum

Added on by C. Maoxian.

I dig it… especially the opening transitions. Would be a good song to inhale to… thanks to the Spotify algo for recommending it:

Then You Put a Line Through It

Added on by C. Maoxian.

Sort of a weird video, but I love the song. Nearly a billion plays on Spotify and a half billion on YouTube so one or two people heard it before I did:

The Same Old Buzz, Just Because

Added on by C. Maoxian.

Start the video at 0:54 … thought it was Alan Jackson the first time I heard it … some clever lines, a great sound, I love it. Look at all the idiots in the audience watching the performance through their phones… oughta be a law.

The Grammatically Correct Charlie Rich

Added on by C. Maoxian.

The great Charlie Rich … when singing along, I always change the line to “Because I believe she’d do the same if she were me, and I wouldn’t know where to turn if she were gone.”

Pause and Retract Claws

Added on by C. Maoxian.

Sounds like Tal has been working on her singing (most think of it as “unremarkable”) … I think she’s great.

Goin' Back to a Simpler Place and Time

Added on by C. Maoxian.

An aged Gladys Knight singing her big hit from ‘73 while sharing the stage and the song with some kids… you can see how great she is by comparison, there’s just no comparison, really. God bless true talent!

Mind The Wasp

Added on by C. Maoxian.

Big fan of Morcheeba … check out Skye Edwards’ body language… what a voice.

Lost and Lonely

Added on by C. Maoxian.

I dig this cover of what is probably The Cure’s best song. The bassist’s primal roar made me laugh out loud.

Tigers in Tiny Spaces

Added on by C. Maoxian.

I dig these old farts … that lead guitarist is almost exactly my age … the entire band shares my sartorial and grooming style.

Someone Else's Dime

Added on by C. Maoxian.

Jewel from February 1999 … terrible quality but I love this song and her imperfect teeth (fixed once she got big):

Love Me True

Added on by C. Maoxian.

Greek dad, Jamaican mom … not sure why she changes the lyric to “please love me too,” “say you love me too,” but… wow. (Bacharach always thought that Aretha’s version was rushed … and he was right, as this cover proves.)
