Song of the Day # 510 - pop off a slug just to send people a telegram

Not sure how I feel about Girl Talk branching off into non-mashup territory, but if the product scores as well as 'Tolerated', I think I'd be ok with it (but only occasionally).

Girl Talk & Freeway - Tolerated (feat. Waka Flocka Flame)

ps - how about a new mashup album already, homey?

Song of the Day #509 - your voice still echoes in my head

A more polished, more dance-able, less grungy version of Lit.  They would've killed in the late 90's...

Suedehead - Can't Stop

ps - they were fun at Coachella 2012...sad they never broke.

Song of the Day #508 - 'cause it's a hell of a long way to fall just to learn to get up

Sort of like the musical cousin to "Girls Like You"...

The Naked and Famous - The Mess

ps - souplantation is not healthy.

Song of the Day #507 - i've been waiting a while to talk to you

Can't say I ever managed to fall in love with these guys when they first came around, but this song got me right away.  I feel like if I was a songwriter and thought about such things, I would've almost definitely exploited the "first time caller, long time listener" phrase for a song...can't believe it has taken this long for someone to do it.  (though maybe someone already did...)

White Lies - First Time Caller

ps - oculus was surprsingly good!

Hozier - Take Me to Church

ps - tortilla.

Song of the Day #504 - and I never showed you my cold feet, just my pride

Maybe it's my huge crush on the drummer or maybe it's that they just straight up rock, but I haven't been able to get enough of these folks since I saw them last month.  Diggin' the just released new album, too.

The Colourist - Fix This

ps - bread.

Song of the Day #503 - i wanna feel everything aboutcha, girl

How I missed out on these guys back in the 90's, I'll never know...this is right up my alley.  But making up for lost time now.

The Afghan Whigs - Somethin' Hot

ps - just continuing on the train of folks i didn't get to see at coach

Song of the Day #502 - and the money don't run

Don't go up against Grouplove at Coachella because then I don't get to see you.

Aloe Blacc - Chasing

Song of the Day #500 - nah nah nah nah nah nah, nah nah nah

Welp, it's song of the day #500...though I think it took more than 1,000 days to get here.

In honor of the milestone, we'll just go with what is probably my 2nd favorite song ever.  And we'll go with a live version by Sir Paul since the Beatles aren't on spotify and hearing him play it at the Hollywood Bowl a few years back is a top 5 lifetime concert moment for me.

Paul McCartney - Hey Jude (Live)

ps - thanks to anyone who ever actually comes to this thing

Frankie killed it at his grossly under-attended set on Sunday.

Song of the Day #493 - but now i'm scared like a little child

New pop retro?  I don't even know what to call this other than pretty damn sweet.
