12 Aug 2009, 13:04 by BlackCoffeeDuckI was reading Beck's interview with Tom Waits but there's a link of an interview he did all by himself which is so much better really, it's from May last year. It's here to read it in full http://www.antilabelblog.com/?p=288#more-288
One question is: List some songs that were beacons for you? I've been looking at some of them here on last.fm so I'm just going to turn it into a journal. For some reason (I don't know why) I've started from the bottom to top anyway here goes:
Hava Nagila by Harry Belafonte
Empty Bed Blues by Bessie Smith
Wade in the Water by Big Mama Thornton or Wade In The Water by Mavis Staples or Wade In The Water by The Staple Singers or Wade in the Water by The Ramsey Lewis Trio or Wade in the Water by Ramsey Lewis

This is John Krane.
And yes, this is Harry Nilsson's original bathrobe from the Nilsson Schmilsson cover. John bought it at an auction for 500 dollars.
I really love his new album "Doris, Buzz & Friends".
John offers it for free - so get it while you can >here<!
28 Jun 2008, 06:32 by hondo77Each summer I made a CD mix that stays in the player all summer long. It's made up of songs I recently bought and has to be good enough to be played over and over as well as loud enough to be heard in my convertible. Here is the mix for 2008, and though it fits on a CD, it's going to be living on my iPod nano:
We Are The Pipettes by The Pipettes from We Are The Pipettes
If you haven't noticed yet
We're the prettiest girls you've ever met
Whips & Chains by The Green Lady Killers from The Green Lady Killers
You need it?
Down on your knees!
Bow down, love slave
Type Of Girl by Lance Lopez from Higher Ground
You're just the type of girl
Everybody's talkin' about.
You're just the type of girl
That I can't do without.
Superfortress by StoneWall noise orchestra from Vol. 1
Time for takeoff
Time for action
Airborne, all the way
Shockwave by Black Tide from Light From Above
I'm a shockwave
And I'll take your @#*& life
Fukken Über Death Party by Hanzel und Gretyl from 2012: Zwanzig Zwölf
19 Mar 2008, 20:41 by MagiDrakeeI have a radio show on WVAU -- www.wvau.org, that is. The name of this show is "Gone Fishing," and, as you might imagine, it's full of puns about boats and sea bass, not to mention some really lovely pop songs.
Here is a slightly redundant description for the show that I took from my facebook group.
Gone Fishing gathers the best and brightest pop songs of the last fifty years and serves them to you, crisp and tasty, every Wednesday night from 8:00 to 10:00 EST.
If you like pop music and you happen to be reading this on a Wednesday, then you should listen to my show tonight!
Here are a whole bunch of artists that I've played on my radio show.
Belle & Sebastian, Dionne Warwick, Lee Hazlewood, The Shangri-Las, McCarthy, Sambassadeur, The Left Banke, Wings, Jens Lekman, Another Sunny Day, Shop Assistants, The Beach Boys, Felt, Times New Viking, The Supremes, Talulah Gosh, James Dean Driving Experience, Yo La Tengo, The Magnetic Fields, The Brilliant Corners, Razorcuts…
