The Daily Music Post Project, Part IV

Back to the post-a-day self-psychoanalysis-through-musical-selection project!

April 27 … Day 16: “A song that you used to love but now hate.” Again, hate is such a strong word. Let’s just say, I’m kinda embarrassed.  Our winner: “Love Will Keep Us Together” (The Captain & Tennille).

April 28 … Day 17: “A song that you hear often on the radio.” Our winner: “Tishomingo Blues”.  (Hey, I stopped listening to mainstream pop music on the radio during the first Bush administration.  And I couldn’t find a complete version of the bluegrass tune that goes in front of “Car Talk”, …so.)

April 29 … Day 18: “A song that you wish you heard on the radio.” Our winner: “Land of Confusion” (Genesis). Honorable mention: “Hey Mambo” (Barry Manilow). Suffer through the first two minutes fifty seconds of an awful skit that makes “Red, White and Blaine” look like David Mamet; then just listen and enjoy.  Come to think of it, close your eyes during the music video, too.)

April 30 … Day 19: “A song from your favorite album.” Our winner: “Country Road” (James Taylor).

May 1 … Day 20: “A song that you listen to when you’re angry.” Our winner: “Not Ready to Make Nice” (Dixie Chicks). There’s a reason this was Song of the Year, that year (or in any year, for that matter). Honorable mention: Mandy Patinkin’s cover of “You’ve Got to Be Carefully Taught” from South Pacific. It’s not subtle, but it sure is angry.

To be continued… just two more installments to go… you can make it!
