Title: River
Artist: Joni Mitchell
Album (year): Blue (1971)
Submitted By: @philnorman

Title: Father & Son
Artist: Cat Stevens
Album (year): Tea for the Tillerman (1970)
Submitted By: @philnorman
Comments: Just saw him do this recently for an NPR Tiny Desk Concert. Amazing how a song can evoke such strong memories of my youth and also the adult pain of wanting the best for your kids in a hard life at the same time.

Title: Electric Worry
Artist: Clutch
Album (2007): From Beale Street to Oblivion
Submitted By: @popa2unes
Comments: Memories of teaching my twin boys how to drive, most importantly the art of steering wheel pounding while shifting through gears

Title: Working Class Hero
Artist: John Lennon
Album (1970): John Lennon/Plastic Ono Band
Submitted By: @popa2unes
Comments: I get a sad every December missing John Lennon and wondering what if……
In 1973, US Representative Harley Orrin Staggers heard the song — which includes the lines “‘Til you’re so fucking crazy you can’t follow their rules” and “But you’re still fucking peasants as far as I can see” on WGTB and lodged a complaint with the Federal Communications Commission (FCC). The manager of the station, Ken Sleeman, faced a year in prison and a $10,000 fine, but defended his decision to play the song saying, “The People of Washington, DC are sophisticated enough to accept the occasional four-letter word in context, and not become sexually aroused, offended, or upset.” The charges were dropped.[5] Other US radio stations, like Boston’s WBCN, banned the song for its use of the word “fucking”. In Australia, the album was released with the expletive removed from the song and the lyrics censored on the inner sleeve.

Title: Waterloo Sunset
Artist: Ray Davies with Dessoff Chamber Choir
Album (Year) The Kinks Choral Concert (New York 2009)
Submitted by: Simon @simon2307
Comments: I only have The Kinks original recording of this track on a 45 so settled with a more recent version by Ray Davies with the Dessoff Chamber Choir, you can listen to whole concert on NPR http://www.npr.org/2009/12/22/121757293/the-kinks-choral-concert. The track itself was a seminal influence on my musical taste and one that evokes a lot of fond memories of people and places. I’ve wrote about it a couple of times on the blog – http://www.beat-surrender.com/2009/03/05/waterloo-sunset/

Title: Take Your Shoes of Dance Part 2
Artist: Booker T Averhart & The Mustangs
Album (Year) For Dancers Also (1983) on Kent Records (re-issued and available on vinyl from Ace Records http://acerecords.co.uk/for-dancers-also-2
Submitted by: Simon @simon2307
Comments: Lead track from the b-side of For Dancers Also, an album what was on the turntable over and over and over gain at the time and one that invokes wonderful memories of a time when I was free of responsibility and world was what happened somewhere else. Part 1 with lyrics http://youtu.be/iU_nCCj3dT0

Title: Lawyers, Guns and Money
Artist: Magnolia Electric Co.
Album (year): Daytrotter Studio (10/26/2009)
Submitted By: Rockstar Aimz
Comments: Been thinking about Jason Molina lately…..here he is with his band covering one of my all time favorite songs.

Title: Just Me and These Ponies (For Christmas This Year)
Artist: Corb Lund
Album (year): An Americana Christmas (2014)
Submitted By: Rockstar Aimz
Comments: Corb writes a sad country song for those of us who find Christmas a lonely and isolating holiday. However, the cheesy production on this song kills me. I wish it was just him and an acoustic guitar.

Title: American Girl
Artist: Tom Petty & the Heartbreakers
Album (year): Tom Petty & the Heartbreakers (1976)
Submitted By: @BoogieStudio22
Comments: When I saw the ‘memories’ theme, this is the first song that came to mind. Every time I hear this song, it takes me back to my 16 & 17-year-old self in 1976 – 1977 timeframe. I’ve got my driver’s license, my parents’ Impala, windows are down, cruising everywhere with my best friend Mike (or maybe cruisin’ in his metallic blue Duster), and American Girl is blasting from the stereo. Damn! Those were great times!

Title: Radio Free Europe
Artist: R.E.M.
Album (year): Eponymous (1988), but I remember hearing the original single in 1981
Submitted By: @BoogieStudio22
Comments: Hearing this single, in 1981, was one of the many turning points in my musical journey. These guys melded the sounds of the 60s that my brother had introduced me to, the country I had abandoned in my youth and rock that I always loved, into a blend that hit my musical sweet spot in the early 80s. This song reminds me hanging with my college buddies in the computer lab, another buddy Mike in our college radio station, my next door neighbor Patty & I sharing music, and friends in local bands.

Title: Fracking
Artist: Tanya Tagaq
Album (year): Animism (2014)
Submitted By: @tincanman2010
Comments: Tanya is a Native Canadian throat singer, and her album has received widespread acclaim in folk circles. Kinda hard to get your mind around, but she beat out Drake and Arcade Fire for Canadian album of the year.

Title: Blood Oranges In The Snow
Artist: Over The Rhine
Album (year): Blood Oranges In The Snow (2014)
Submitted By: @tincanman2010
Comments: As with their previous Christmas forays, they celebrate the season without getting too sappy about it.

Title: Sixteen Tons
Artist: Tennessee Ernie Ford
Album (Year): Single (1955)
Submitted By: Truersound
Comments: My Grandad loved this song and it will always remind me of him.

Title: Miss Marcy
Artist: Johnny Horton
Album (Year): Single (1960)
Submitted By: Truersound
Comments: My high school drafting teacher was something of a mentor, a grandfather figure to me after my own died, and also a very accomplished musician (for example he was once a member of Charlie Monroe’s band). He used to bring his banjo and guitar into the class and play tunes for us. This is a favorite he used to do, though we all knew the song as “Billy Boy”. Took me years to track this down, and of course his rendition is much better.

Title: “Roll Me Up”
Artist: Willie Nelson
Album (Year): Heroes (2012)
Submitted By: Gorrck
Comments: I’ll never forget this song as the first time I heard it was live in concert last December. It was a concert that my wife surprised me with tickets to the show the morning of the concert. She’s not a Willie Nelson fan at all. She bought the tickets months in advance and surprised me. It was fantastic.

Title: Yesterday’s Cakes
Artist: The Cropdusters
Album (year): If The Sober Go To Heaven… (1989)
Submitted By: Mad Mackerel Music Blog
Comments: Memories…The Cropdusters live for the first time in Southampton in 1987 – the finest hoedown, footstompin’ cowpunk we ever heard. If you loved the Levellers, the Men They Couldn’t Hang, The Pogues et al, then this was the band that should have been bigger than all of them.

Title: Make It Rain
Artist: Tom Waits
Album (year): Real Gone (2004)
Submitted By: Mad Mackerel Music Blog
Comments: Music gets us through the best of times and the worst of times. 2008 was the latter – this was my go-to song throughout. Can’t listen to it now. “Without her love, Without your kiss, Hell can’t burn me, More than this, I’m burning with all this pain, Put out the fire, And make it rain!”

Title: Shit, Damn, Motherfucker
Artist: D’Angelo
Album: Brown Sugar (1995)
Submitted By: Trailer
Comments:

Title: Banned In DC
Artist: Bad Brains
Album (year): Black Dots
Submitted By: annieTUFF
Comments: FBFY, have a listen to one of the punkrock bands that helped shape teenage annieTUFF. This was some of the fastest music that I had ever heard, and I was way into it. I still am. I gotta be honest, picking a song for a memory was really hard for me. Not for the lack of memories, but for the abundance of them. So many songs remind me of going to great shows, or the summer starting, or taking a roadtrip, etc. Everything has a song attached to it.

Title: My Uncle Used To Love Me But She Died
Artist: Roger Miller
Album: Words And Music (1966)
Submitted By: toomuchcountry
Comments: My dad loved his Roger Miller King of the Road LP. So did I. And I remember thinking we had bonus Roger Miller in the house when I got some sort of compilation LP with Snoopy and the Red Baron on the cover. Not sure what I thought it was going to be – or what Santa thought it was. But I remember the Royal Guardsman song was an acquired listen. One song was an immediate hit with me though – the bonus Roger Miller we now had in the house. The song (and Miller’s music) remains a favorite of mine this day.

Title: Memories
Artist: The Silos
Album: Flipping The Bird (unreleased boot)
Submitted By: toomuchcountry
Comments: Went for the all-too-obvious theme connection. The song is relevant to the theme though in that I have memories of how great The Silos were on their first couple of albums, Cuba (where Memories was originally released) and “The Bird Cover”. And it’s cool to hear Bob Rupe on vocals.

Title: Too Much Of A Good Thing
Artist: The Sons (feat. Bret Reilly)
Album (year): Dumb & Dumber OST (1994)
Submitted By: TheSecondSingle
Comments: This was the second album I ever bought (after Weezer’s Blue Album; in my collection I also had the Blind Melon album a friend gave me and a free Tommy Hilfiger promotional CD from Dillards). Can’t remember if I bought it before or after the movie. Probably before, and it started a trend where I would always buy the soundtrack for the movies I wanted to see, before I even saw them. This song always stuck with me. It’s catchy as hell and probably could have been a hit, but then towards the end it kind of goes into this odd, jazzy/lounge feel before coming back to the killer chorus. Not sure what ever happened to these guys, but they made one of my all-time favorites.

Title: Got My Mind (Set On You)
Artist: George Harrison
Album (year): Cloud Nine (1987)
Submitted By: TheSecondSingle
Comments: The first song I remember really loving and learning all the words and singing it around the house.

Feel Bad For You – November 2014



Just in time before the month fades here’s this months FBFY mix for all you musical connoisseurs out there.



DOWNLOAD

Thanks to Matt for curating and all those taking part, here’s the run down………..

Title: Hard Times
Artist: Gillian Welch
Album (year): The Harrow & The Harvest (2011)
Submitted By: @philnorman
Comments: Hard times ain’t gonna rule my mind no more. If only I could remember that, maybe times wouldn’t be so hard.

Title: Merrimack County II
Artist: Tom Rush
Album (Year): Merrimack County (1972)
Submitted By: Truersound
Comments: Was recently turned on to Tom Rush by a friend and found a few LPs at a used book store. This tune is off one of those albums

Title: Wino
Artist: Bob Frank
Album: Bob Frank (1972, Remastered 2014)
Submitted By: Mad Mackerel Music Blog
Comments: Bob Frank’s self titled debut album took elements of Dylan, Johnny Cash, and Ian Tyson and filtered it through a pot-smoked haze. He spent many a stoned evening staggering alone through the mid-south urban gothic landscape of church steps and sleaze bars, with his guitar glued to his arm. Songs would emerge from dreams or drunken visions. And they were great songs, like this one, the marvellous opening track Wino.

Title: Cold Turkey
Artist: John Lennon
Album (year): The John Lennon Collection (1982)
Submitted By: @BoogieStudio22
Comments: I was jonesin’ for my FBFY earlier this month, so this song seems appropriate. Also, Turkey Day!

Title: Great Blue C
Artist: The 442’s
Album (year): The 442’s (2014)
Submitted By: hoosier buddy
Comments: Kids all over are holding hands, snapping their fingers, and drinking double chocolate malteds; all while swinging and swaying to the sonic stylings of The 442’s. You’re gonna dig their modern sound. So get with it – take this disc for a test drive to the soda shop! Later you can ask your doctor why you don’t have three hands like everyone else.
The 442′s are based in St. Louis, and combine two members of the St. Louis Symphony with two members from the Erin Bode Group. Adam Maness writes songs and plays guitar, accordion, melodica and glockenspiel; Shawn Weil is on violin, Bjorn Ranheim on cello and Sydney Rodway on bass. This album is a trip with stops in classical, folk, jazz, and surrealism.

Title: “Camp Pendleton”
Artist: Camper Van Beethoven
Album (year): El Camino Real (2014)
Submitted By: TheSecondSingle
Comments: My favorite song off the newest CVB album. A little more Cracker sounding than CVB, but that’s never a bad thing.

Title: Long After Tonite’s Candles Are Blown
Artist: Comet Gain
Album (year): Paperback Ghosts (2014)
Submitted by: Simon @simon2307
Comments: Seemed an appropriate choice given this weeks news from the cosmos and what’s more it’s one of my most played tracks of 2014 from Comet Gain who’s back catalogue is a wonderfully eclectic experience if you’re not familiar.

Title: Socking Soul Power
Artist: Simtec & Wylie
Album (1969): 45 single
Submitted By: @popa2unes
Comments: single 45 backed with Stay With Me For Better Or Worse
Simtec & Wylie were an American soul duo from Chicago active in the late 1960s and early 1970s. The group was composed of Walter “Simtec” Simmons and Wylie Dixon

Title: Love That I Got
Artist: Strange Majik
Album (2015): Lights On
Submitted By: @popa2unes
Comments: From the upcoming Strange Majik (AKA David Pattillo of The Dead Exs) LP “Lights On.” Love That I Got features the lovely Fiona Silver

Title: Cry Over You
Artist: Tami Neilson
Album (year): Dynamite! (2014)
Submitted By: Trailer
Comments:

Title: Cat Fur
Artist: The Rulers Of The Root
Album (year): 2014
Submitted By: Blabber’n’Smoke
Comments: First album from some veterans of the Glasgow music scene backing up the weird and wonderful lyrics of Patrick Gillies.

Title: Please Let Me Let It Go
Artist: Barr Brothers
Album (year): Sleeping Operator (2014)
Submitted By: @tincanman2010
Comments: A plea for salvation so beautifully judged in pace that I’ll grant it to them. The hints of Neville Brothers in the vocals sealed the deal. Can I hear an AMEN? Or at least an ATIN

Title: Peggy Legg
Artist: Terry Allen
Album: Human Remains (1996)
Submitted By: toomuchcountry
Comments: November – a month for family gatherings and reflections of things for which we’re thankful. A turkey leg to eat and even one good leg with which to dance.

Title: Dishonest Jenny
Artist: The Faults
Album (year): De-Fault 2001
Submitted By: annieTUFF
Comments: Back with another Knoxville band, I can’t help it. I’ve gotta be real honest here, I’ve been working on the artwork for the new Mic Harrison and the High Score record, and in doing so I’ve been going thru the last 10 years worth of photos I’ve taken of that band. I get all emotional, it’s like going thru family photos. BUT I know over the last couple of years I’ve submitted several Mic Harrison and the High Score songs to FBFY so instead I decided to go a few years prior to a different band…with some of the same members. I’ve been going so far back in time, of course my pick this month goes back over 10 years.
P.S There is some current “The Faults” facebook if you search for them but that is a different band. This is Mic Harrison, Robbie Trosper, Paxton Sellers and either Jeff Bills or Jason Peters (depending on the time)

Title: For The Battered
Artist: Tommy Womack
Album: Stubborn (2000)
Submitted By: toomuchcountry
Comments: Recent high profile cases in the NFL have surfaced what many sadly know all too well. Domestic violence is all too common, and it isn’t restricted to any particular economic status or race. October is Domestic Violence Awareness Month. Help someone if you know they need it. Call, text, email, tweet, or simply go to someone if you are a victim of domestic violence – or if you are someone committing this violence and need a way to stop.

Title: Tubular Bells
Artist: Mike Oldfield
Album (year): Tubular Bells (1973)
Submitted By: @philnorman
Comments: Have you ever heard of exorcism? It’s a stylized ritual in which rabbis or priests try to drive out the so-called invading spirit. It’s pretty much discarded these days, except by the Catholics who keep it in the closet as a sort of embarrassment.

Title: Witchcraft in the Air
Artist: Bettye Lavette
Album: Northern Soul All Nighter (2014) and various others too
Submitted by: Simon

Artist: Flying Lotus (feat. Captain Murphy & Snoop Dog)
Album (year): You’re Dead! [2014]
Submitted By: hoosier buddy
Comments: You never know who you’re going to meet in the afterlife. This is one possible preview of how that might go down. I love that this just sounds like Halloween, and the funhouse atmosphere is extra creepy because of the serious subject matter; friends who died. For a real treat (pun intended) look up the song artwork by Japanese comic book artist Shintaro Kago.

Feel Bad For You – September 2014

Artist: Chris Carroll
Album: Trouble & Time
Song: Just Like That
Label: Independent
Submitted by: Adam Dawson www.TheBrokenJukebox.com

Title: Lateness of Dancers
Artist: Hiss Golden Messenger
Album (year): Lateness of Dancers (2014)
Submitted By: @philnorman
Comments: “Wheel of love, you broke me.” Saw HGM recently opening for Jason Isbell, and I was frustrated because I couldn’t understand a word. Which is a damn shame, because this record is amazing and I’ve already listened to it a zillion times.

Title: Leyndarmal (King and Cross)
Artist: Asgeir
Album (year): Dýrð í dauðaþögn (2012)
Submitted By: hoosier buddy
Comments: This year Asgeir released an English version of the same album, with only the vocal tracks changed. I much prefer the Icelandic vocals.
Glistening nighttime dew, and she is walking with me.
From the house of red, I hear a child crying.
Foxes heading home, their prey hangs from their jaws.
And the forest knows, but it won’t share the secret.

When the king takes sides,
leaving moral minds; soldiers take their share.
Nighthawks seem to sense that now is the time.
Deep inside them burns the raging fire of life.
He’ll take back what he owns.

Death cannot take hold, if I can keep momentum.

Title: You’re Gonna Lose
Artist: Lions in the Street
Album: self-titled (2014)
