  • You know I never say anything bad because you do so much work and research but this week’s cover is forgettable. A few more listens and I will give you the positives and there will be many.

  • The two songs that stood out for me were:
    Django Django – Default
    Here We Go Magic – How Do I Know

  • Agreed Tom. Those two make me happy too.

    and hey Lou I do ask for the good the bad and the ugly. You have the ugly covered. Hopefully there are a few goods.

  • The Ok: Sousavers
    The Walkmen
    Here We Go Magic
    Dave Mathews Band (Not a huge fan of his)

    The good: Saints of Valory
    The Cult
    Young Hines
    Afghan Wigs
    Django Django
    Orange Grove

    The Great : A Silent Wish

    The oh boy what happened: Florence and the Machine
    The National

    Please note that the songs on the “OK” list can be moved to good or great after a few more listens.

  • The very good song uncontested is Soulsavers’ in the morning
    Ugly is Lucifer they should have kept it underground.
    Good are the Afghan wigs
    Thebad is Florence and the machine
    I leave it raining in Castamere.

  • So cool that you added Rains of Castamere. I’m a huge GoT fan and that song is such a big part of the books. The song played during the credits of the 2nd to last episode this season and it was perfect. That said, not sure I would, you know, listen to it in my car or anything lol.

  • Thanks Pamela and lIsa. Agreed with The National song. Sometimes I feel I need to play something even if it doesn’t fit. I’m quite sure that will be the only time you’ll hear it on the radio.
