Friday Five

Uncategorized Comments Off on Friday Five

Well, I’m off on a cross-country flight.  So in honor of being crammed into steerage class for hours on end, here are five songs that never fail to get me grooving in my seat:

The Clash, “Guns of Brixton”

Moby, “Flower”

The Lawrence Arms, “Faintly Falling Ashes”

Oasis, “Morning Glory”

Iggy and the Stooges, “Search and Destroy”

"She spent a lifetime beside him"

Just listening to the Clash’s brilliant Combat Rock album. I honestly think that “slamdance cosmopolis” is one of my favorite phrases in the English language. Why? Can’t totally tell you. I just think it sounds awesome.

At any rate, here’s a cool little video I came across: it’s a fan homage to bassist Paul Simonon, set to “Guns of Brixton”, off of London Calling. Lots of good shots of the band. Enjoy!
