My Top 5 Music Obsessions of the Day :: 4/11/17
It’s time for some Tuesday Tunes from the Picks of the Day for My Top 5 Music Obsessions. We all could use a Musical Injection to keep this week going strong, and what better way then to spin Today’s Top 5 Song choices. All you need is some speakers or headphones, and the desire to inhale Good Music and exhale any and all stresses that have come your way. Its all going to sound Great…just Press Play and you’ll see.
Let’s start with the ever-feuding Gallagher’s, shall we? Song 1 is “All Around the World”, which was the first Song I heard this morning. From there, let’s Tune in to some Primal Scream, from one of my Favorite Albums of theirs, Beautiful Future. Count Five celebrates a “Pretty Big Mouth” for Track 3, a new discovery Song to me, heard this weekend for the first time. Chrissie and the Pretenders serve up a “Perfect Order” for the 4th Song of My Music Obsessions with “Brass In Pocket”. We can all do some “Detroit leaning” along with Chrissie this Tuesday. The Top 5 ends with a dose of Synth-tastic New Wave, with M’s “Pop Muzik”, which you should Blast loudly and dance around the room to.
You can click to listen to each video below, or choose the Spotify or YouTube link to listen to the My Top 5 Song Obsessions of the Day :: Top Five playlist. I add each five songs shared to both playlists each day, so they expand as the Month unfolds. Each Month will have its own ever-expanding Playlist, so if you missed a day, or a past week, its all there for your audio perusal.
My Top 5 Music Obsessions of the Day:
1. “All Around the World” :: Oasis
“So, what you gonna do when the walls come falling down?
You never move you never make a sound.”
The first Song of My Top 5 is the first Song I heard this morning. I turned on a Paul Weller Pandora station, which I’ve sprinkled some variety into, and this was my first Song of the day. Be Here Now is an Album I am not as familiar with, from Oasis (pictured above), but one I am acquainting myself with lately. This one is one of my Favorites from it.
2. “Can’t Go Back” :: Primal Scream
“I looked into my baby’s eyes.
I tried so hard to find some light.
When I looked there was no one there/
no one there at all.“
Primal Scream was on my mind this morning. As I made a pot of coffee I was thinking about their Music, and this Song in particular. This album, Beautiful Future, was the initial Primal Scream Album I dove into, when I first discovered the band. This was my first listen Favorite, and it is still one of my Top Primal Scream Tracks.
3. “Pretty Big Mouth” :: Count Five
“I took a trip up north,
and one back west.
I went to the east to find the best,
oh but I ended up in the deep deep south,
making love to the woman with the big big mouth.”
Back to a Pandora Playlist, this one via my boyfriend who had his on Shuffle as we drove around this past Sunday afternoon. This was my Favorite of the song’s he spun, so much so I stuck it in Yesterday’s Monday Playlist, and had to include it in Today’s Top 5, too, because I can’t stop listening to it.
I dig their vamp-capes in the picture above.
4. “Brass in Pocket” :: Pretenders
just seems so pleasing.
Gonna make you,
make you notice.”
Chrissie Hynde is one of my Favorite Female voices. This Song is one of my Favorites of hers. Oh, and it has one of my Favorite Music Videos from the 80’s, too. It’s beyond “Special”, the Song, her Voice, the Video. This is one of those Tunes I never, ever get tired of hearing, no matter how popular, or played, it has been.
5. “Pop Muzik” :: M
“Radio, video, boogie with a suitcase,
your livin’ in a disco,
forget about the rat race.
Let’s do the milkshake,
sellin’ like a hotcake,
try some, buy some fee-fi-fo-fum.
Talk about pop musik.”
Turn this Up and dance. C’mon, you know you want to.
