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.
