Song of the Day #752 - the stars and the charts and the cards make sense only when we want them to

Was instantly in love with this song the first time I ever heard it...

The xx - On Hold

ps - i remember seeing them open for friendly fires like 7 years ago...they were kind of dull. now they're playing just before a headliner at coachella...and with a much livelier stage presence. i approve.

Song of the Day #739 - yeah, we're lookin at ya

Good 'ol Garbage. Only had 30 minutes, but cranked out the hits.  Didn't have time for this lesser "hit", but I've always really liked it.

Garbage - Cherry Lips (Go Baby Go)

ps - shirley fell off the stage!

Song of the Day #738 - she's so energetic in her sweaty overalls

What a kooky song. I love it.  Best Weezer song since '(If You're Wondering If I Want You To) I Want You To'.

Weezer - Thank God For Girls

ps - poor guys had to play immediately after the chilis announced they weren't playing...the venue was deflated.

Song of the Day #737 - oh, we gotta turn up the crazy

Gotta say Panic! crushed it. Outside of the Blink surprise, they may have been the best band of the day.

Panic! At The Disco - Victorious

ps - they absolutely destroyed 'bohemian rhapsody'

Song of the Day #736 - let's make this last forever

So, uh, Blink came out and played a set totally unexpectedly.  That was pretty fantastic.  Matt Skiba filled in just fine, but it was definitely a little weird without Tom. Still a blast.  We'll go ahead and do a Tom song

Blink 182 - First Date


ps - got blink tix for the fall!

Song of the Day #735 - pointing nasty fingers and making fun

Alright, missed a few days, and I think we've exhausted the Coachella theme... so let's get into Weenie Roast!  Man, it was a fun fest.  We'll start off with the first act I saw... Lukas Graham.  Whatever your opinion of '7 Years' is (I dig it), this guy/band has talent.  This one's a little homage to 'Hard Knock Life'...

Lukas Graham - Mama Said

ps - looks like anthony kiedis is ok after the hospital scare...glad to hear it.

Song of the Day #734 - i'll drive my car without the brakes

Never have gotten super into these fellas, but I do dig this song a lot.  Lord Huron and The Kills won this time conflict for me.

Foals - Mountain At My Gates


ps - weenie roast today!  maybe once i'm done with this neverending coachella nostalgia trip, i'll do some entries for the bands of weenie.
