Essential Saturday night listening: I often like to put on something that I can dance to, so English Beat, David Bowie, The Police, Prince, New Order, The Cure, The Pretenders…
Essential Sunday morning listening: So after a long night of Saturday dancing and frivolity, The Cocteau Twins or Joni Mitchell are a nice way to start a Sunday. Also please refer to my guilty pleasure question, another nice way to start a Sunday morning.
First record I bought with my own money: Adam and the Ants, Kings of the Wild Frontier… because the percussion is amazing and it was like nothing I had ever heard before. Ant Music!
“Wish I’d written that” song: Brian Wilson’s “God Only Knows” or Prince’s “Nothing Compares 2 U”; both songs make me feel things that no other songs do.
“Wish I could unhear that” song: “We Built This City” by Starship, well, because it’s really just kind of lame.
My latest online discovery: Billie Eilish, she is far too young to be so dark and creepy, but I love it.
Artist more people should know about: Sea Wolf. Regina Spektor. If you had to look up Sea Wolf, then…
Guilty pleasure: My Lite ’70s Rock Pandora station, i.e., Steely Dan, Christopher Cross, James Taylor, Carly Simon… reminds me of riding in the car with my dad when I was a kid.
