Title: Saturday Song

Album (year): Mustard II Unnamed Unfinished Album (2002).
Submitted By: annieTUFF
Comments: Ya know, August is a weird month. It’s still very much summer. School starts back (in my area anyway), and towards the end of the month you can start to feel fall creeping up on you. Transitional I suppose. Anyway. This song is about Saturdays, but I can kinda relate it to summer as a whole. Mustard is a great Knoxville band from the 90′s. Various members are still out there making music everyday, check them out via the ol’ facebook for musical shenanigans and links to current musical projects. http://www.facebook.com/tastethemustardmustard

Title: Love U Forever
Artist: Jenny Lewis
Album (year): The Voyager [2014]
Submitted By: hoosier buddy
Comments: This song would be a guilty pleasure, if only I still experienced that feeling. Instead I find it easy to like this song the same way I liked making out with strangers when I was a working musician. It was never about forever. It was always about feeling something right now, even if it was “the feeling of hell in a hallway.”

Title: Month Of Bad Habits
Artist: Andrew Combs
Album (year): unreleased (2014)
Submitted By: Bryan Childs (ninebullets.net)
Comments: A demo track of an amazing song that will (hopefully) be on his next album.

Title: My Dad
Artist: Paul Westerberg
Album (year): Folker (2004)
Submitted By: @BoogieStudio22
Comments: After a year of declining health, at age 84, my dad passed away on July 22, 2014. I got to help my dad and mom quite a bit this year and was happy to do it. I hadn’t listened to this song in ages, but it popped up on random play last week. So long dad…

Title: Leather Jacket
Artist: Mick Taylor
Album (year): Mick Taylor (1979)
Submitted By: TheSecondSingle
Comments: There’s something timeless about this track. It’s far more Springsteen than Stones. Perfect end of summer jam. Shoulda been a hit in ’79.

Title: Here Comes A Regular
Artist: The Replacements
Album (year): Tim (1985)
Submitted By: Mad Mackerel Music Blog
Comments: Another belated discovery, this time of the sheer genius of The Replacement’s 1985 release Tim, and so we have chosen possibly one of the finest album closers you could ever wish to hear for FBFY. Here Comes A Regular is an unflinching, twitchy confessional – the perfect misfits hymn of alienation.

Title: “Road To Nowhere”
Artist: Talking Heads
Album (year): “The Best Of Talking Heads” (2004)
Submitted By: Gorrck
Comments: Been all over Scotland this summer — traveling somewhere every weekend. One two week trip to the continent that completely depleted the bank account. The original scope of my project here has changed daily. Seems like a fitting song for this summer.

Title: Time Is Not Your Own
Artist: Solomon Grundy
Album: Solomon Grundy (1990)
Submitted By: toomuchcountry
Comments: Reached into the dark corners of my collection to retrieve this one. Didn’t listen to it much after buying it. Never read a review on the album and have no clue what happened to the band. I bought the CD simply because the band’s name was the same as a Sesame Street character I remembered as a kid.

Title: Wide Open
Artist: Travis Meadows
Album: Old Ghosts & Unfinished Business (2013)
Submitted By: Trailer
Comments:

Title: Happy Man

Artist: Sparklehorse
Album (Year): Distorted Ghost EP (2000)
Submitted by: Simon @simon2307
Comments: Linkous’ songs were dark like coal compressed into diamonds” – Patti Smith on the late Mark Linkous of Sparklehorse

Title: Tryin’ to Get to Heaven
Artist: Bob Dylan
Arlbum (Year): Time Out of Mind (1997)
Submitted By: Rockstar Aimz
Comments: Been on a Dylan bender the last few days. Cued up my 32 hours, 49 minutes, and 47 seconds of mp3 Bob, and after a few hours this song jumped out at me and kicked my ass.

Title: 27 Forever
Artist: Eric Burdon
Album (2013): ‘Til Your River Runs Dry

Title: Confederates
Artist: Michael Rank & Stag
Album (year): In The Weeds (2013)
Submitted By: Blabber’n’Smoke
Comments : Having listened to Ranks latest album, Deadstock I’ve gone back to his earlier ones. This song knocked me out.
