The 50 songs I'd want with me while stranded on a deserted island with no Internet.
Just updated the playlist for 2021. These aren't necessarily my 50 favorite songs. Or even a coherent and well crafted playlist. Just 50 songs I know I'd wish I could listen to if I had nothing to listen to. New on the list this time :
Rival Sons - Wild Animal The Parlor Mob - Into The Sun The Muggs - Never Know Why I've always been a sucker for guitar driven, garage-y, hooks-for-days rock. And I discovered these bands over the last few years. The Muggs in particular are in many of my playlists. The later work doesn't hold up as well, but some of the early stuff is flat out brilliant. It's wild and raw but still feels crafted down to the last note. Somehow. Big fan.
K/DA - Pop/Stars Babymetal - The One Even I'm rather confused by my foray into K-pop and J-pop. You can blame Marilee. She sent me this video, which was sort of like the curtains opening on a new universe for me. And that led me down the rabbit hole into the oddly specific sub-sub-genre of LoL gaming/marketing songs. Which led me to Wagakki Band. Which led me to Babymetal. So.... yeah..... Marilee's fault.
Jethro Tull - Cup Of Wonder Live - Lightning Crashes Van Morrison - Bright Side of the Road Jethro Tull - One White Duck/0=Nothing at All Hozier - From Eden Eric Clapton - Lonely stranger Roxy Music - Avalon Yes - Turn Of The Century Marcy Playground - America Joe Pug - Nation of Heat Stevie Ray Vaughan & Double Trouble - Voodoo Chile (Slight Return) Everclear - Santa Monica Joan Jett & The Blackhearts - I Love Rock N' Roll Eli Paperboy Reed - Your Sins Will Find You Out Tyler Bryant & The Shakedown - Lipstick Wonder Woman Hozier - Cherry Wine Tracy Chapman - Fast Car Indigo Girls - Prince Of Darkness The Beatles - Norwegian Wood (This Bird Has Flown) Pink Floyd - On The Turning Away Jethro Tull - Rover Paul Simon - Graceland Spin Doctors - Jimmy Olsen's Blues R.E.M. - Superman Bonnie Raitt - Angel from Montgomery Jethro Tull - Dun Ringill The Who - Behind Blue Eyes The Doors - L.A.
