Suzanne

Sometimes when I listen to Suzanne I have to remind myself that someone wrote this song. That is, it didn’t just spring up from nowhere or always exist. But every time I listen to it I’m impressed. It’s beautifully written. Which isn’t hard to say — it’s a classic, right? — but still, it’s beautifully written.

We Are The Small Axe

Maybe it’s all the talk about the fight against SOPA/PIPA but Bob Marley and The Wailers’ Small Axe is the song of the week for me. It’s true, “you are an agent of change” and we can cut down any tree no matter how large. Anyway, it’s an awesome song and worth listening to every day for more than a week. Here it is.

Gogol Bordello: My Strange Uncles From Abroad

I’ve been somewhat obsessed with Gogol Bordello for the past week or so. If you aren’t somewhat obsessed with them too you’re missing out. Anyway, this isn’t exactly terribly representative of their immigrant punk sound but it’s pretty awesome nonetheless; here they are doing an acoustic version of My Strange Uncles From Abroad.
