The next installment of UEMN's IPOD Roulette. Just a reminder that the following was random in every sense of the word. No skipping by the embarrassing bits, I assure you...
The Strange Design Of Conscience by The Flaming Lips
From the Flight Test EP, one of my favorite non-LP tracks.
Lightning Strikes (Not Once But Twice), by The Clash
Off the underrated Sandinista triple album.
Donation by The Wonder Stuff
From their best album, Never Loved Elvis.
Jack, You’re Dead by Joe Jackson
From Joe’s Jumpin’ Jive album. What a tight band he had for this one!
Casey Jones by The Grateful Dead
Ok, love ‘em or hate ‘em, you can’t deny their place in the R&R cannon…
The Boogie Bumper by Big Bad Voodoo Daddy
Swing for the masses, nothing authentic or deep but still good fun.
You Dress Up For Armageddon by The Hives
Garage rock for the new millennium. They’re really growing on me…
Machine Gun Ibiza by Prefab Sprout
From the PROPER follow up to Steve McQueen, Jordan: The Comeback
Take Your Mama Out by Scissor Sisters
For a band that’s named for a lesbian sexual position, they sure wrote some catchy tunes on their debut album, and this was the best of the best.
Mother by John Lennon
The most affecting song on Plastic Ono Band.
Red Rabbits by The Shins
From Wincing The Night Away, a real grower of an album.
Can I Get A Witness by Marvin Gaye
What can I say about this? Soul personified.
Keep It Together by Aqueduct
Under the radar, vintage synthesizer one man band. Surprised more people haven’t heard of this.
Butterfly McQueen by The Boo Radleys
From their masterpiece Giant Steps.
Where The Hell’s My Money by Mojo Nixon and Skid Roper
Have seen these guys live many times, and this is Mojo at his angriest…and funniest!
The Good The Bad and the Ugly by Hugo Montenegro
From the movie of the same name.
The Golden Path by The Chemical Brothers
The Chemical Brothers with Steven Drozd from the Flaming Lips on vocals. This is his first lead vocal on disc, as far as I know, and he sounds eerily like Ian McCullough from Echo and the Bunnymen.
