Tastemakers At Work
Psst, Marcy and Pat. Come here a second. So, are we alone? Okay, so don't tell Deb or anything. I don't want a make a fuss, but when you guys put the music from last night in your iTunes, did you notice the date on the Epochs song? Mine says 2006. Don't worry I changed it to 2007. I didn't tell nobody, but maybe you guys should change yours, too. You know, before she notices anything. I had fun last night despite Greg's absence. Here is my choice for his year and selections.September Gurls by The Bangles (Big Star cover)Anotherloverholenyohead by PrinceFuture Is So Bright, I Gotta Wear Shades by Timbuk 3
Hey, where's Pat's Bette Midler song?I guess:1979: Jim (because of "The Squeeze")1997: Marcy (because of Elliot Smith)2004: Debbie (because of Bishop Allen)2007: Pat (because of LCD Soundsystem)What do I win??? (Hey, wait, Jim already gave it a away - I'm wrong... sigh.)
Also my vote:Gina-By strange coincidence chose 1986, the same as Greg.Venus by BananaramaHigher Love by Steve WinwoodFinal Countdown by EuropeLarry-1975White Punks On Dope by The TubesEvil Woman by ELO (wait, weren't we just talking about that?)Bandstand Boogie by Barry ManilowEric-1992Smells Like Teen Spiri by Tori Amos (Nirvana cover)Television, the Drug of the Nation by Disposable Heroes of HiphoprosyCat's In The Cradle by Ugly Kid Joey (Harry Chapin cover)
Jim, you are psychic! Except I would have gone with "Back in the High Life":http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RB5DyyWrs1c&feature=related
You know, it was a toss up between those 2. With High-life being such an obvious reference to Miller beer, and my impression of you as more of a red wine imbiber, I went with Higher Love (an again obvious reference this time to Mary Jane, but I remember you saying Cheech and Chong's Nice Dreams was one of your favorite movies so I thought you would go that way). I'm glad you approve. Anytime you need help with making your choices, you know where to find me.
