The week is over, and the weekend is just beginning. This is a time for celebration, and this means a bit of music. Therefore, I have found the Music Tree T-Shirt – And now for something a little different…
Rather than just waffle on like I always do, I thought I’d give you a run-down of the first ten songs that appear on my iPod. I’ll do no shuffling or skipping – it’ll just be the first ten. Here goes.
- Nothing But A Good Time – Reel Big Fish – a Ska-punk cover of the Poison classic. Foot -tapping rating: 8/10.
- Summerholidays Vs. Punkroutine – Refused – Nice, bass-driven heavy punk with tortured vocals and a somewhat funky rhythm. Head-nodding rating: 7/10
- You Ain’t Goin’ Nowhere – Brett Dennen – A beautiful cover of the Dylan classic. Head-swaying rating: 7/10
- Auto Pilot – Queens of the Stone Age – A mellow, almost “lazilly drugged” turn from a brilliant band. Desire-to-take-narcotics rating: 8/10
- Rain – The Cult – Great rock n’ roll. Solid bass, wailing guitars and great vocals and lyrics. Sing-in-the-shower rating: 8/10
- Electric Worry – Clutch – Down South blues rock with a rusted, jagged edge. Desire-to-neck-a-bottle-of-bourbon rating: 7/10
- Last Leaf – OK Go – Moving and very sweet acoustic number with rich, rustic sound-engineering. Want-to-cry rating: 8/10
- Swagger Of Thieves – HLAH – Boisterous, swaggering return from one of the best bands to ever come out of NZ. Desk-head-banging rating: 9/10
- Don’t Think Twice, It’s Alright – Bob Dylan – One of the most honest and human sentiments ever expressed in music. Knowing-nod rating: 9/10
- Rock Box – Run DMC – Rap royalty combining super-clever lyricism and glam metal aesthetics perfectly. Desire-to-wear-an-adidas-tracksuit rating: 9/10
So that’s what I listened to while I wrote this post. And this Music Tee was the perfect visual accompaniment. It’s excellently designed, playful and original. It was created by Auraclover whose entire range is something to be admired. You can find this tee on spreadshirt.com where it costs $22.20, comes in lots of colours and sizes from S-XXL. And boy, am I relieved that none of my truly embarrassing musical tastes cropped up in that selection!
