Music Appreciation Day

The "Hogan's Heroes" marathon will have to wait until tomorrow. Along with the DVDs, I also ordered a CD, The Best of Sixpence None the Richer. It has both of their big hits ("Kiss Me" in both English and Japanese, and their cover of The Las "There She Goes") as well as some other interesting covers, including ABBA's "Dancing Queen" and Crowded House's "Don't Dream It's Over." I had to go rooting through my collection to find my Crowded House CD. I thought that "Something So Strong" was the best track on that particular disc. Now I'm getting ready to pop in some Neil Young: Weld. Both discs. Yeah! Cognitive dissonance: That came out fourteen years ago. Damn. That doesn't seem possible.

I got a lotta romantic mileage out of that song, "Kiss Me."

oohh, I love Crowded House. The Finn brothers make some great music together and apart. Want me to burn you some? If you only have one ....you absolutely need more.(About a month ago, the drummer from that band took his dogs for a walk in the park, and then hung himself. It really angered me when I learned he had two little girls. How selfish.)

How come I never heard of Weld? Is it with Crazy Horse?

Yes, Weld was live stuff with Crazy Horse from 1991; a lot of Ragged Glory stuff, with some earlier tunes as well.

Actually, it was Arc/Weld, with the latter being a two-disc live set and Arc being "35 minutes of stray guitar explosions, feedback screeches, stage announcements, and drum checks, all edited together to form a continuous (and actually rather compelling) listening experience" according to the Amazon.com review. I don't have Arc, though...
