Know Your Onion is a wonderful song. But it's not as good as this one.

Because I think it's been long enough since I last posted a Dylan song, and this is so
much better than what the Byrds did to it:

Bob Dylan - Mr Tambourine Man

Supposedly, everyone who bought the Velvet Underground and Nico on its original release went out and formed a band... that said, not many people bought it. So, while the Beatles sung about love and acid, the Velvets were singing about S&M and heroin. Here's

I think that's true of bands that make it, but I've been to enough student band gigs to know that Velvet-inspiration isn't always a good thing. It can inspire a preening tit thinking how cool he is for singing about S&M and heroin. (The worst band for rubbish inspiration is Sonic Youth... well certainly in quantity...
Oh, very, very true. And about Sonic Youth as well. That said, I do like any cover version released by them (especially their cover version of Superstar... hmm, possibly go looking for that for tomorrow!-), and my favourite period from them must be their Ciccone Youth one!

But yes, simply dressing in black leather, adding droning guitars and writing songs about drug addiction usually lead to incredible boredom, at least in this audience member. The best, though, add that little bit extra!

You know, I always thought that you were either a Beatles fan or a stones fan. And the Velvet track Heroin put me off drugs for life. So generally I'm interested in any band that is trying to be neither the Beatles or the Velvet Underground.

Marlene On The Wall

I don't know why, but I was in the mood for some Suzanne Vega.

A few years ago, a friend and I came up with an idea for a TV series, but we couldn't get anyone to pick it up. Anyway, this is the song I wanted to use for the opening titles, if it ever got that far:

Kosheen - Empty Skies

Following on from my discussion with Stanmore yesterday, here, from the early 90's tribute album "If I Were A Carpenter" is a brilliant cover version:


Sonic Youth- Superstar

With an added link to yesterday's suggestion from me, in that the Velvets and the Carpenters both had lady drummers (hmm, what a good name for a group).

In total contrast:

Steely Dan - Do it again

They look like prats, I know. But I love them to bits. I got into the Dan through my love of Donald Fagen's Nightfly album (I posted Ruby baby from that the other day). I think they are brilliant.

I have very fond memories of Danny Baker talking about the Dan after he replaced DLT (a big Dan fan ) on R1 on Saturday mornings, remarking that if you don't know who Steely Dan are.......you should. DB was supposed to be making the show more hip. In fact, he upped the Dan and Fagen quotient considerably. Result! Wink

Odetta - Cotton Fields

I really like folk and blues and the like and I've not posted one dimes worth of the stuff. So here's a legend who we recently lost.
