First of all I want to start by saying thanks for reading my previous post. I got a lot of feedback about my first post ever. One of the things people said was that it’s better if I’ll give a link to a YouTube playlist at the beginning of the post and not at the end as it will be great to hear the music while reading.
I’m a thoughtful person… This is this week’s playlist link – http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=E0JwW623n1A&feature=BFp&list=PL4D389B2E834C7D65
And now let’s go straight to the music that made my week and hopefully will make yours. This week’s music is dedicated to some artists I’m going to see this summer.
Pearl Jam – Crazy Mary
This song was originally performed by a singer named Victoria Williams. Victoria is an American singer-songwriter. In the middle of her music career Victoria learned she is suffering from multiple sclerosis. Pearl Jam’s cover was part of a tribute to Victoria in order to raise money for her medical care as she didn’t have health insurance. This tribute included covers for Victoria’s songs from artists like Lou Reed, Soul Asylum and of course the great Pearl Jam.
Stay tuned for a nasty Guitar/Keyboards solo battle at the end of the song.
Radiohead – Where I end you begin
I just love how Thom Yorke move in this video. Just can’t wait to see them live. In my opinion, one of the best bands ever.
Red Hot Chili Peppers – I Could Have Lied
Taken from their best album in my opinion “Blood Sugar Sex Magic”. The guitarist John Frusciante joined the band in this album after replacing Hilel Slovak that died from (how surprisingly) heroin overdose. John’s guitar changed the sound of RHCP forever even though he left the band not so long after he joined because of – guess what? – a heroin addiction.
John won’t be at the concert of RHCP that I’m going to see as he recently left the band which makes seeing them a much less exciting experience. Well, I guess it will be great nonetheless.
Eddie Vedder – Rise
Taken from Into the Wild soundtrack. If you haven’t heard the soundtrack you should. Quick. Now. Eddie Vedder wrote all the music and it’s awesome. By the way, the movie is really good too. The thing that stayed with me from the movie is this line “Happiness only real when shared”. Mark Zuckerberg knew exactly what he was doing…
Thom Yorke & PJ Harvey – The mess we’re in
I wish I could see PJ in concert this summer. She’s one of the coolest women out there.
A few words on a website I like. A lot. thesixtyone is a great place for finding Indie artists and explore some amazing music. Recommended for open-minded people who want to discover music and are tired of the crap commercial TV&Radio sells. Just a taste here. I’ll bring some more examples from time to time.
Thanks for listening and don’t be shy sharing the music that made your week.
