Shovels & Rope – Gasoline
Shovels & Rope, the duo comprising of husband and wife Cary Ann Hearst and Michael Trent, have themselves a winner with this blistering two-guitar song that I heard in the trailer for the film Bad Turn Worse. It kind of grabs you by the neck and doesn’t let go until it’s done – in a good way.
Soundgarden – The Day I Tried To Live
I listened to Chris Cornell in conversation with Marc Maron on the podcast WTF last week and it was awesome. This year marks the 20th anniversary of Soundgarden’s Superunknown so here’s a song from the album. Black Hole Sun is all I knew from it when it came out but I like this one better today.
Dwight Tilley Band – Looking For The Magic (You’re Next OST)
I watched the very good horror/slasher movie You’re Next last week and was very curious about this great song that features prominently in it. Turns out it’s from a 1977 release by the Dwight Tilley Band called Twilley Don’t Mind. It’s such a pretty song but I will never be able to listen to it without thinking of the film–which is not a problem, it’s just that the context makes it a little scary.
Gilmore Girls Theme Song – Where You Lead
Gilmore Girls is now on Netflix! I know that doesn’t mean I can watch it because we don’t have Netflix in India but still! It made me think of the theme song by Carole King and Louise Goffin. Here’s the full song featured in a fan tribute video. Ah, Stars Hollow!
Duke Ellington – Take The A Train
This is the song you should listen to on the weekend. Have a good one!
