Steely Dan – Deacon Blues  

One of my all time favorite songs. I can listen to it over and over, and it never gets old. It puts me in the mood to wonder broken streets at night.

Midnight Star – Wet My Whistle  

This is a really fresh track. If I were ever intoxicated enough to sing karaoke, I might choose this one to embarrass myself.

Antonello Venditti – Ci vorrebbe un amico  

The two most important treasures I found while living in Italy would be my wife and this fabulous 80s hit. Viva Venditti!

Nicole & Timmy Thomas – New York Eyes  

I did not know about this song until I was 28 years old. How I lived my life until then, cannot be explained.

Ebo Taylor – Love & Death (70s version)  

A powerful song from the king of Afrobeat. To quote Gilles Peterson, "How beautiful and sad is this track?"

Player – Baby Come Back  

This is the type of song you hear in the grocery store, and then it is stuck in your head for the rest of the day. Thankfully it's an awesome track to be stuck in there.

Toto – Georgy Porgy  

Toto is legendary, and so is this track. Gotta love the driving keyboards.

George Benson – Give Me The Night  

A good song to listen to while getting ready for a Friday night of drawing.

Plastic Mode – Mi Amor  

Not much is known about this Italian duo from the 80s. But I really love this synth-heavy love song that seems to be inspired by Kraftwerk and…Campari?

Nu Shooz – I Can't Wait  

Of all the one hit wonders in all the world, this may be #1.
