The Weekly Playlist - John Mayer

John Mayer – American Pie (Live On Letterman)
Mayer takes on an American classic in a Letterman jacket at the farewell show for host David Letterman.

Mat Kearney – Billion
Saturday afternoon seems to be my time for discovering songs on the radio. The rest of the week, all I catch are ads and strange interviews. This week I discovered Billion by Mat Kearney.

SBTRKT – nO less
I don’t know when ‘smooth’ became a bad word in music, but I don’t mean it that way when I say this track is really really smooth. Then it kicks in around 1:36 and it’s all very good. SBTRKT is one of my favourite artists to listen to on headphones. You should do the same.

Del Amitri – Nothing Ever Happens
I don’t know why this song – and most of Del Amitri’s catalogue for that matter – doesn’t have millions of views and listens. Come on people! Just listen to the music, the lyrics, that voice…everything! The songs don’t age and are always a pleasure to listen to. That’s why they’re always on my playlists. This one is urban poetry – if you must give it a cutesy term.

Meghan Trainor – Lips Are Moving
This song is my guilty pleasure of the week. Sigh. I heard it on the radio and can’t get it out of my head.
