Songs to romance to

I get a kick out of checking what search terms people use to get to this website (hairy bearded men, chan marshall’s feet, antlers on a bear, future spacesuit…). For a while “tight white shorts” was in the lead, but “songs to propose to” is quickly catching up. I wonder how many people have actually taken my suggestion and used Smell Yo’ Dick to get down on one knee and do one of the most romantic things they’ve ever done. If anyone has been brave enough, please let me know. Since my romantic song suggestions are so popular, I’ll give you another one of my faves:

R. Kelly – Real Talk

Forest Swords – Glory Gongs
Forest Swords – Miarches

Vodpod videos no longer available.

PS – Combination Pizza Hut And Taco Bell is STILL stuck in my head. Arrrrggghhhh!!!

I went to sleep last night with this song stuck in my head. I woke up this morning with this song stuck in my head. It won’t go away. Please make it go away.

There seems to be a plethora of really good shows in September. Starting with the Fuck Yeah Fest. Some songs from bands that are playing…

No Age- Boy Void
Lucero- Anjalee
The Thermals- A Pillar Of Salt (acoustic version)
Wavves- Mickey Mouse
Crystal Antlers- Andrew

And then on the 18th, two of my favorite bands are playing together… Giant Drag and The Charlatans UK. An odd combo, but a helluva show. If anyone is thinking about getting me a birthday gift (my birthday is the next day), this would be a good choice.

Giant Drag- Slayer

And then the next night, on my actual birthday… Mason Jennings is playing.

Mason Jennings- California Pt. 2

And on the 25th… the Manic Street Preachers are playing the States for the first time in over 10 years…

Manic Street Preachers- A Design For Life (acoustic)
Manic Street Preachers- Roses In The Hospital

And finally on the 29th, Kid Koala is playing at the Key Club. Last time I saw him was at an in-store at Other Music.

Kid Koala- Skanky Panky

I went to the Hollywood Bowl on Sunday night. It was Reggae Night. Gregory Isaacs was supposed to perform, but he was sick. So, it was an extended set from Mykal Rose… just sick thick ass dub. Toots and The Maytals also performed, but since most people know who they are, I’ll just post a couple of videos of Mykal Rose.

I went to Cape Cod to hang with Megs and Kyle last weekend. I love those kids. It was the prefect combo of relaxing vacay and crazy fun. As I’ve been known to do, I made a soundtrack for the weekend. Something to carry us through the long rides from Providence to Brewster to P-Town to Nauset to Boston. Here’s a sampling of the hits:

Vampire Weekend – Walcott (remix)
Moțrhead РAce of Spades

Shiny Toy Guns – Major Tom (Coming Home)
Dirty Projectors – No Intention
