My Top Ten Male Singers
Top Ten Tuesday

The flip side of the last list by request. These lists continue to be near impossible to narrow down, and this was yet another tough one. The list of my favorites would go on, and on, and on – well past “ten”, but this is a “Top Ten Tuesday” list, so I painfully cut and put this list together. Some of these slots are subject to change, others will always be where they are. All that said, for today, for right now, this is a list of My Top Ten Male Singers on Top Ten Tuesday.

Tuesdays. The day felt heavy at its start, stresses snaking in to interrupt freshly brewed, strong coffee, and music to press play to. But, I pushed through, persisted, turned the music up louder. Five music obsessions came together quickly, as they often do, and started to spin around and around, turning this Tuesday on its head.

The five got started with some love from The Thrills, that worked its way into “The Hardest Walk” circa Psychocandy. Big Star came around with a song that holds one of my favorite lyrics – “would you be an outlaw for my love?”. Eddie & The Hot Rods and a cool cover from The Stranglers tied it all together, and there it is, today’s Top 5 Music Obsessions of the Day.

Monday again. I woke today with an overwhelming feeling that it was going to be a good day, a good week, an almost-here good month. I put my turntable on, this morning. I wanted to start the day with an album playing, and I’m trying hard to make this new place feel like my home. It doesn’t yet, not at all, but music helps. Music always helps.

Let’s start with a Rodriguez song – one that makes tears come to my eyes. On from that, a track from the album I was playing before the sun came up, this morning. Next, how about a little “Shake Some Action” to get Monday started? Then a dip into 1989, with The Replacements. The last of my obsessions for today? A song that has been an daily obsession close to a dozen times, at least – my favorite Velvet’s tune.

Here you are. Friday. Finally Friday. Friday’s My Top 5 Music Obsessions starts with my favorite track off of The Juliana Hatfield Three’s album – a quintessential album for me, from 1993. Then we return to my Brit Pop rediscoveries with a band I neglected in the past. Oasis comes around again with one of my current favorite songs of theirs, then its one of my all-time favorite tunes from “Uncle Jarvis”. Friday’s Top 5 ends with some Weller, a track of his that was spinning in my head before the sun came up today.

Hello Thursday, how’s it all going with you today?

Let’s press play and listen to a few songs, shall we? We can “Come On/Let’s Go” with some Weller, then blast up to “Saturn 5” with Inspiral Carpets. Wings will fly us back just in time to “feel lazy” with The Lightning Seeds, and then end the day with an ode to rain, and unrequited (with a hope to be requited) love.

Hello Wednesday, how goes it? Middle of the week, halfway there, the peek over to see the light at the end, and one of my favorite days of the week.

I’m feeling a bit on the tired side today. Busy days and a bit of fitful sleep, so I’m leaning on music (and coffee) to carry me through. So, what is helping me today?

How about some love showers with Kula Shaker? A bit of celebration at having “…all the time in the world”? Then up the ante with some Leftfield turned up loud. Oasis and Placebo round out the five with two of my favorite songs from the both of them. That’s what is getting me through the middle of the week day.
