Time, time, time for another Music Club get-together!
Perhaps the back half of April? April 23rd (Roy Orbison's birthday) or April 30 (Bon Iver's birthday)? Gina would pick the 23rd solely on the musician's birthday. My friend Wendy would pick the 23rd too because it's her favorite day of the month. I don't have a preference. Politi, did anyone tell you the theme? It's "Do-over" - you can do over a theme that you may have felt missed the mark or do-over different songs from different themes. Basically it's a redemption theme! Some random musical asides. Pat, though you favor the less sad Beck songs, whenever I hear "Lost Cause", I think to myself that this is one well crafted sad song. I can't explain why I love Elliot Smith so much but Sufjan Stevens leaves me cold (the exception to this is "Casimir Pulaski Day" since I'm not dead inside). Since D'Angelo finally delivered, does that mean The Avalanches are around the corner?
This interview is fantastic. Quincy is the man! https://www.gq.com/story/quincy-jones-has-a-story
