Dionne Warwick produced by Burt Bacharach and Hal David? And she covers one of my favorite songs, George Harrison’s “Something?” Sign me up.
Despite my silly headline, we do have some serious stories to cover this week. Let’s get to those first, and you shall be rewarded with some amusing stories to see you into the weekend.
Two weeks ago, I talked about how my dad preferred The Monkees over The Beatles, and how most of the Beatles records I own were originally my mother’s. Pictured therein was the group’s twelfth and last album, Let It Be, and I’d be remiss if I didn’t talk about it in some way.
The Letter S is truly jumbo-sized this week. So, so many good songs start with this common letter, and even though I have a lot to talk about this week, believe me when I say that I am still holding back. We can gush in the comments instead.
Look at us, reaching The Letter G in favorite-song-goodness already! This week, I talk about one of my all-time favorite songs of any letter, semi-cheat on my own rules, talk about the difference between live sets and studio albums, and mention that historical artifact, The Virgin Megastore. Get in!
Y’all, I seriously hate everything this week. You know? Nothing has gone right. So now I’m here with a glass of wine and some comfort music. Tonight that comfort music is the incredible Traveling Wilburys: Vol. 1.
