Phriday Phive

Stuck home today, chillin' with an illin' kiddo, so I am shuffling the BilliTunes library for today's random quintet of interesting (I hope) tracks.

You're always welcome to drop a comment with your five, I'm always interested in other people's pods.

Let the games begin:

1) "Soma" from The Strokes debut album Is This It. If that cover art seems unfamiliar to you, it's because this is America, and we can't have our kids seeing such filth when we take them to Wal-Mart to buy ammo for our weapons. So, most of us Americans got this album art instead:

Aren't we lucky? Here's them performing it live:


That's "Black Gold" by Soul Asylum. Great song.

Listen: "Black Gold" (mp3) by Soul Asylum, courtesy of Lil Mike's Last Known Thoughts & Random Revelations. There are more Soul Asylum songs at that link. Nice post on the band from August 2006.


"The World Has Turned and Left Me Here" by Weezer, off their "blue" album.

The blog Neile's Life did a segment in September of "the 125 Albums that should be in your collection". This was #17, and the song can be heard here: "The World Has Turned and Left Me Here" (mp3), courtesy of Neilie's Life.

4) Ah, a classic:

"Blue Suede Shoes" by Carl Perkins.

Here's an old look:

And numero 5 to get you through the weekend:

"Moon Baby," the lead track from Godsmack's quadruple-platimum debut eponymous album.

Here's them performing the song at Woodstock '99. Viewer beware: he says some bad words.
