A few songs we're listening to on this impossibly warm Monday in southwest Missouri, as we navel-gaze:

•"Sinitaivas" by Olavi Virta and The Harmony Sisters. We heard this irresistible song in the movie, "Lovers of the Arctic Circle", a favorite.

•Longwave's "Tidal Wave." Not a great band, but a pretty good hook.

•"Superstar" by Sonic Youth.

•Sugarcult's cover of the Modern English tune, "I Melt With You."

•"Don't You Want Me" from Human League, 'cause you were working as a waitress in a cocktail bar.

•"Running Scared" by Roy Orbison. A pop opera in 2:13.

•Blink-182's "Adam's Song."

•"Dashboard" from Modest Mouse.

•"I'm Shipping Up to Boston" from the Dropkick Murphys. And speaking of Boston:

•"Hitch A Ride." RIP, Bradley Delp.

Here's a flash back! Hope it still there when you click, sometimes they find them and they disappear into copyright heaven.

hummmm, after watching that I see there is documented proof for today's teens that The Killers and Green Day were not the first to get happy with the eyeliner. Everything does come back around.

Thanks for getting me to listen to BOSTON! Enjoying the tunes and associated memories. What next - barring a death reminder - The Rasberries??? Hey, remember when we used to ...
