Top 5 Music Obsessions featuring Andre Williams

Monday is here. Its been a tough one for me, but I’m getting through it, pressing Play and Turning Up the Music, letting Songs be my solace. I’m feeling terribly inadequate as a person and a parent right now, but I know if someone I cared about said the same thing I’d remind them that we all feel that way and that in many ways we are all inadequate. That’s part of the journey of life. Part of the motivator to learn and grow. It’s hard though when in the midst of these feelings. But, Music helps. Today’s Top 5 Music Obsessions are definitely helping.

The first Track is Andre Williams cover of Otis Blackwell’s Song, “Daddy Rolling Stone”, a Song that has also been covered by The Who. Over the weekend my boyfriend and I watched a documentary on Andre Williams (Agile Mobile Hostile: A Year with Andre Williams) which I would recommend. Its a little hard to find, but we did end up renting it via Amazon.

Next up is The Who. We also watched a documentary on The Who this weekend (on the making of the Quadrophenia Album), and one on Keith Moon. I’ve been discovering a lot of Music from The Who since early last year. I’ve always been well versed in The Rolling Stones and The Beatles, and not The Who, but that’s changing rapidly. “Behind Blue Eyes” has always been a favorite of mine.  It was originally written for Pete Townshend’s “Lifehouse” project (a Rock Opera that never came to be), but to me, I’ve thought it to be about Pete himself.

Track three is “Stars Align” from Belly. This one is from their upcoming Album, Dove, which is due out in May. I can’t wait for it!

“Bone Dry” from Eels follows closely behind. This is from the new Album, The Deconstruction. Something about this Song reminds me of Peter Gabriel. Especially the Vocals.

Last, but not least, is “Let the Happiness In” by David Sylvian. This is the first Song I heard today. A Song, and sentiment, I really need today.
