I’ve spent the past couple weeks painting the rooms here at mi Casa. Started with the master bath, moved on to the TV room, now working on the master bedroom.
Today while The Lovely Wife was at work and the Precious Children at school, I decided to crank up the stereo with some old faves. I hadn’t listened to this particular playlist in a while, and I’m glad I did. Such fun.
Today’s Best in Set (multi-way tie):
- Big Star “September Gurls” - the template.
- Guided By Voices “I am a Tree” - wow, that guitar!
- The Shins “Simple Song” - I still get chills whenever I hear that last verse.
- New Pornographers “From Blown Speakers” - crystalline and perfect.
- Brian Jonestown Massacre “Straight Up and Down” - what can I say? BJM!
- Dinosaur Jr. “Feel The Pain” - a blast from the distant past but oh man, that was good.
There were many, many, more, but these ones particularly stood out.
