Song You Should Know-July 28, 2010

I needed it most, when I was eighteen.
But now that im older, I don’t need many things.
Just someone to hold, that’s what you give me.
When dark touches your skull baby,
Aw babe you can drop that on me.

My Morning Jacket, “I Needed It Most”

Song You Should Know-July 13, 2010

It’s time we start smiling
What else should we do?
With only this short time
I’m gonna be here with you

George Harrison, “Behind that Locked Door”

Song you should know – July 12, 2010

“Pharaoh, my Pharaoh, the devil is real,
He’s in my Camaro, he’s got his teeth on the wheel,
Mile on mile, field after field,
Skyline and silo,
The devil is real.”

The Duke and the King, “The Devil is Real”

Song You Should Know-July 8, 2010

Well if sex is a weapon, then smash, boom, pow,
how you like me now?

Them Crooked Vultures, “No One Loves Me and Neither Do I” (pretty kickass around the 3:00 mark)

Song you should know – June 29, 2010

With a vampyre’s kiss, I’ve got a vampyre’s heart,
Now I don’t roll out of bed till after dark,
See my teeth so sharp, and my blood so still,
Ya know I could drink the world and never get my fill
A.A. Bondy – “Oh the Vampyre”

Song You Should Know-June 25, 2010

Been beat up and battered around.
Been sent up and I’ve been shot down.
You’re the best thing that I’ve ever found.
Handle me with care.

Traveling Wilburys-“Handle with Care”

Song You Should Know-June 23, 2010

I guess you’re as real as me
Maybe I can live with that
Maybe I need fantasy
Life of chasing butterfly

Weezer, “Butterfly”

Song You Should Know-June 21, 2010

We hunched together in one chair out on the deck
In snow that froze and fell down on the modern set
It looked as if I picked your name out of a hat
Next thing you know you are asleep in someone’s lap
Watch ’em run, although it’s the minimum, heroic

The New Pornographers, “Bleeding Heart Show”

Song You Should Know-June 18, 2010

Never seen a hotter day or a darker night
Where the sightless terror grows with every sound
The air so thick and dangerous it’s hard to catch your breath
With the bullets and the “skeeters” flyin’ round

Oh we rode a winged horse all along that border
Across the Mustang trail we left dead men
Heroes every one of them theirs and ours alike
Their blood the same damned color in the mud ‘neath Nue Ba Den
Red-black, red-white, red-yellow, at the feet of the Black Virgin

– “Nue Ba Den” by Mike Morningstar

Song You Should Know-June 16, 2010

Working from seven to eleven every night,
It really makes life a drag, I don’t think that’s right.
I’ve really been the best, the best of fools, I did what I could, yeah.
‘Cause I love you, baby, How I love you, darling, How I love you, baby,
I’m in love with you, girl, little girl.
But baby, Since I’ve Been Loving You, yeah. I’m about to lose my worried mind, ah, yeah.

Led Zeppelin, “Since I’ve Been Loving You”
