Dropped a couple of these last week...one at Elmwood High, the other in the Calendar Club kiosk at Polo Park
Straight Outta Compton - Nina Gordon
A kid In the hall told me that he just discovered NWA. Yeah, I'm the teacher that they tell that kinda stuff too.
Betterman (live in South Africa) - Pearl Jam
A great version of a great song.
Number of the Beast - Zwan
Brings back memories...when I taught up North, this was on the mixed cd that we were listening to while we buried a friend's truck in snow.
Redemption Song (live) - Chris Cornell
Really love this one...would've loved to have seen him when he rolled through the 'peg earlier in the fall.
Badfish/Boss DJ - Jack Johnson
Jack doing Sublime... a little bit of a summery vibe that we need in November!
The Pizza Song - The Bouncing Souls
A fun song...I miss being able to buy a good, big slice like I can back home. I wish we could get that one together there Manitoba.
George Jones Talkin' Cell Phone Blues - Drive-By Truckers
Love my Truckers...recently read a Jones biography...this song sums up the most recent years pretty good.
Rollerskate Skinny - Old 97's
Just sticking with that alt-country vibe introduced last track...Rediscovered this one whilse trolling through the archives for a different song.
Local Celebrities - The Paperbacks
My new faves...been listening a lot lately...Winnipeg band. Love what the lyrics say about that fickle finger of celebrity.
Nobody Said It Was Easy - The Four Horsemen
A fave to crank on the iPod on the drive home. Shameless guilty pleasure to sing in the car.
Darling Nikki - Foo Fighters
I got Foos tickets last week! I like popping rarities on a mix like this. (Though I guess since this has been officially released, it ain't a rarity no more.)
Returning To The Fold - The Thermals
One of my musical discoveries of the year. So much fun, and a great show!
True Patriot Love - Joel Plaskett Emergency
Reppin' the east coast...that's all this is about!
Realize - Air Traffic Control
More East coast stuff...a friend's band, check them out!
Plea From A Cat Named Virtue - The Weakerthans
I love this song. I love the fact that it's a narrative from the cat's point of view...so much fun!
I've Got An Ape Drape - The Vandals
Just ponder mullets for a second...now you understand why this was included!
Breakfast Club - Z-Trip
Fun...and I want those Saturday mornings back.
The Maritimes - Classified
Pretty self explanatory...Miss the coast the most!
