  • I should have mentioned this weeks ago, but thanks for the new formate for the playlist. Makes it much easier to follow the songs.

  • I listened to this playlist while doing various tasks. My head popped up when depeche mode started. I thought, “ooh I like this… who is this?” Of course it was Depeche Mode. Still I hadn’t heard that song before. Thanks for bringing this band back to my attention.

  • Thanks George. It was a suggestion from a NEXTer. Glad it’s helpful.

    and Katherine. Glad a song made you stop in your tracks. I love when that happens. DM have a new album out but that’s of course a good reason to listen to NEXT every week. I do the homework…all you need to do is listen (and get an easy musical education). I don’t even need credit. You can show off to all your friends.

  • She and Him never disappoint me M Ward is genius.
    I expected better from Brendan Benson, it may require more plays.
    I enjoyed also Emilie Bell and the Black Angels.
    Honey, Honey may be song of the week. Sometime I enjoy a well written folk song.
