James Taylor – Fire And Rain
Over the weekend I listened to a conversation with James Taylor on the podcast WTF with Marc Maron. I’ve always been aware of his music but never really of his story. The conversations on WTF are uniformly of a high standard, but even given that, this one is exceptional. You must listen to the conversation and then to his music.
John Mayer – I’m On Fire (Bruce Springsteen cover)
Proving once again that no one does a cover quite like John Mayer.
Tracy Chapman – Fast Car
Another song I’ve been aware of my whole life. I was a kid when it came out and I didn’t really get it. Now I do.
Postmodern Jukebox ft. Casey Abrams – Stacy’s Mom (Fountains Of Wayne Cover)
I haven’t heard this since it came out in 2003. This vintage 1930s jazz version is a great reminder.
Slash and Myles Kennedy – Patience
Should I go to the November concert in Mumbai or not? This is the question.
