today’s tunes: under pressure

RIP David Bowie.

my room-mate from college and I used to argue about who sang this song.  this was in the dark ages before smartphones allowed you to instantly look things like this up on the google or wikipedia, so we never did come to a conclusion.  I argued it was Queen, he insisted it was David Bowie.

a few years later, after we had both graduated, my friend called me on the phone with great excitement:

him: Thad, remember how we would argue about ‘Under Pressure’ as being Queen OR David Bowie?

me: yes, I remember.  it is Queen.

him: no! I just heard it on the radio… and it is David Bowie AND Queen! we were both right all along!

me: whoa. mind blown.

or something like that.

today’s tunes: down by the seaside

no video, just tunes…  a gem from Led Zeppelin’s “Physical Graffiti” album.

Down by the seaside
See the boats go sailin’

today’s tunes: Peggy-O

word on the street is that The National is deep in the midst of a major project: a tribute record(s?) of 70 or more songs by the Grateful Dead.

here’s a little sample of things to come:

As we rode out to Fennario
As we rode out to Fennario
Our captain fell in love with a lady like a dove
And he called her by name pretty Peggy-O

sailors in your mouth – happy thanksgiving

hope you have a blessed day of Thanksgiving with delicious foods and fellowship with friends and family.

enjoy this, um…. strange song, performed by The National, for the TV show “Bob’s Burgers.

What’s that sound
It’s the gravy boat comin’ around
It’s not a Navy boat, it’s the gravy boat
Filled with bravery, savory sailor folk stuff
And sailors disembark
Fill our plates
Fill our hearts
Fill our hearts

today’s tunes: 20 miles to NH part 2

this is one of my favorite bands, The National, covering the song “Twenty Miles to NH Part 2” by the Philistines Jr.

it is a song about cats.

My cats fight,
And play all night,
And drive me crazy.
I wake up and
They just sleep all day.

Time went by,
The old ones died,
So we got new ones.
If they could talk,
I wonder what they’d say.

Hey, hey, hey, hey
Whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa

today’s tunes: you’ve got a friend

good luck with your sail delivery @Shoreline_Sail
