Sirius Playlist – Week 5

Neil Young

My Tuesday night Sirius radio shows have been all over the place so far. I maybe played one song twice in five weeks, and there have only been a handful of artists who I’ve played more than once. I think that’ll be less-and-less true as weeks go on – partly for my sanity because picking 30-something songs each week, not to mention getting them to Sirius so they can make sure they have them in their system, is a lot of work. What I mean is – they’ll probably be more repeats as the weeks go on. That said, here’s my June 27, 2006 playlist.


I wanted to open with The Ballet because they’re what I’ve been listening to most lately (the four songs I have anyway), and I’m excited to have them playing my show Thursday night @ Syrup Room.

1) The Ballet – I hate the War

Their anti-war song inspired me to play three more.

2) Neil Young – Living With War
3) The Clash – The Call Up
4) Billy Bragg – The Marching Song of the Covert Battalions

I already played Neil Young, so then I played a Neil Young cover by one of my favorite Brooklyn bands of all time, Type O Negative….

5) Type O Negative – Cinnamon Girl (Neil Young cover)
6) Black Sabbath – Paranoid
7) Wolfmother – Tales from the Forest of Gnomes


8) Tapes ‘n Tapes – Omaha
9) Deadboy & The Elephantmen – Stop, I’m Already Dead
10) Two Gallants – Steady Rollin’
11) Johnny Cash – Folsom Prison Blues

12) The Weakerthans – One Great City
13) Ryan Adams – Sweet Black Magic
14) Elliot Smith – Waltz #2
15) Mazzy Star – Bells Ring

Mazzy Star’s So Tonight that I Might See is one of my favorite albums of all time, so I played a track off that and then played four more of my favorite artists from the same time period…

16) Portishead – Wandering Star
17) Massive Attack – Live With Me (alternate version)
18) Bjork – Venus as a Boy
19) Tricky – Pumpkin

I snuck a second track by the Ballet into the next set of songs…

20) Prince Darling Nikki
21) Stars – Sleep Tonight
22) The Ballet – In My Head
23) Voxtrot – Soft and Warm

REgina SpektorThen played more of my ‘old’ favorites….

24) Digable Planets – Nickel Bag
25) De La Soul – This is a Recording
26) Tribe Called Quest – Show Business
27) The Pharcyde – Soul Flower (remix)

28) Deee-Lite – What is Love
29) Tokyo Police Club – Be Good
30) Land of Talk – Seafoam
31) Cat Power – Werewolf

I played Tokyo Police Club and Land of Talk back-to-back just like they’re playing this Thursday at Syrup Room, and then Cat Power who has a similar voice to Lizzy from Land of Talk came right after Land of Talk, and then I ended with Regina Spektor…

32) Regina Spektor – Remember That Time

No new show on July 4th. They’ll be a repeat.
