The Walkmen – Another One Goes By


One of my favorite songs of the past ten years. I was a fan of the original, but The Walkmen's waltzy take on the song instantly warms up any cold room.

Serge Gainsbourg - Requiem Pour Un Con

This is the first Gainsbourg song I was ever exposed to and I suppose it is still my favorite. Just an incredibly cool song that seems to embody everything about the man.

Harry Nilsson – Jump Into The Fire  

I'm a huge fan of the entire Nilsson catalog… yet this song sounds nothing like the rest of 'em. The drum solo always gets me.


Stevie Wonder – We Can Work It Out


I'm not sure there are many artists that can give a Beatles cover justice, let alone blow the original away.


Ike Turner and The Kings of Rhythm – Getting Nasty


I love the tone of songs that are recorded live in a studio, especially when it sounds like it was recorded in the middle of a party.


The Velvet Underground – Oh! Sweet Nuthin'

This record makes me want to lay on the floor and stare through the ceiling.

Minnie Riperton – Les Fleurs  

Just a great song from a great vocalist.


The Beach Boys – All I Wanna Do


There's something amazingly contemporary about the this track. 

Van Morrison – Into the Mystic  

A perennial favorite of mine. This song has meant so many different things to me during various points in my life.

Paul McCartney, Linda McCartney – Ram On  

I think it is important to end every mix/playlist with either a Beatles or Zombies song.
