All's that's in my head today are songs. Tomorrow, I'll extoll the virtues of camping trips -- but that just seems a little on the S&M side considering the omnipresent rain.
Songs: 1. Which Will, Time Has Told Me- Nick Drake 2. Heroin- Velvet Underground 3. The 2d side of Abbey Road 4. If You Don't Cry- Magnetic Fields 5. Kanga Roo, the last three songs (ending with Take Care) on Sister/Lovers- Big Star 6. Colors and the Kids- Cat Power 7. The 1st side of Essence- Lucinda Williams 8. River- Joni Mitchell 9. Dear Chicago, Chin Up, Cheer Up- Dirty Ryan 10. Buckets of Rain- Dylan 11. Riverbed, In a Flash- Ron Sexsmith 12. The entire album Devotion and Doubt- Richard Buckner 13. Stolen Car- Patty Griffin's version even better than Springsteen's 14. Any and All Otis Redding and Hank Williams 15. Soundtrack to The Harder They Come- Jimmy Cliff (to cheer up) 16. all of Surfer Rosa and Come on Pligrim- Pixies (reliable get it out of your system by screaming nonsense in pidgen Spanish). 17. Ain't no Sunshine- Bill Withers (predictable and awesome)
Sorry if this sounds like a stupid Amazon list, but there you go... Any other rainy Monday recommendations?
