Favorite 31 Songs by US Artists According to a Bunch of Middle-Aged Dummies (1 Viewer)

Again - great mix today, everybody!
I am liking this format a lot, and it seems there is a little more of a group effort to listen and comment on picks.

This is a good point. In a draft, we kinda comment if we know it or complain about being sniped, but then we move on to another pick. This format, with the playlists every day, really encourages listening and commenting, and it seems almost everyone has been an active participant!

Possibly my favorite music thread to date.

Yea this is a great thread. I didn't have time to comment today but that's going to happen. I'm enjoying lots of new to me stuff and hearing old favorites.

I indulged my insistent yen for smooth adult contemporary with today’s selection, “Tell Me What You Dream”. The release of this single was risky for Restless Heart. The country music establishment completely rejected the song — for a band that had fifteen country Top 10s to date, this song missed the country singles chart altogether. Instead, “Tell Me What You Dream” became Restless Heart’s first Adult Contemporary #1. They would never place a song in the country Top 10 again.

Restless Heart’s version is a fairly faithful cover of Timothy B. Shmit’s 1985 original. I wonder if the house might prefer Shmit’s version? The bass guitar is a lot further forward in the mix and the electric piano makes it sound kind of ethereal.
Having not heard of Restless Heart, when this came on I guessed this was a yacht rock song from the 70s.

I thought I recognized the band name but the song itself made me question things. Went to Wiki this morning and saw Restless Heart had a big Adult Contemporary hit in 1987. Pull up I'll Still Be Loving You on youtube and damn, my 14-year old self had many a couples-skate to that at the roller rink. Also huge on the OC104 dedication line.

Yacht-adjacent in sound, but IMHO harkens back more the easy-listening country crossovers of the late 70s & early 80s.

Well, we're getting to the point where we're seeing lots of songs we've seen before. And tomorrow we have not one but two Deja Votes. In fact, one of the songs that has the Deja Votes also has a triple-up with another song from the same artist. The "odd man out" second song from that artist is my pick. I'm right and you two are wrong. :boxing:

In addition to the two Deja Votes and triple-up, there's a double-up of yet another artist.

Plus a bunch of songs we've seen before.

I think you guys are going to love this round.
September Gurls and Ballad of El Goodo

Yes. All of that was called "adult contemporary" at the time.

@landrys hat probably remembers that's one of my favorites due to sniping me on it sometime. But Pip's right that I have it higher than this spot. September Gurls does come up today, though!

When I'm searching out YouTube links for those that don't have them, I often let the song play while I'm looking up the next link, unless I know I hate it and want to pause the video right away. In doing this last night, I heard the first bit of that Hall & Oates song and am intrigued to hear the rest today.

I also left the Pantera one on and joked to OH, "Is this your favorite Pantera song?" on the assumption he would hate the band. He then went on a 10-minute discourse about Pantera and how good some of the songs are. Hmph, who knew.

So Amythyst Kiah is a folky-blues artist, who I saw once open for Brandi Carlile in Forest Hills, and she was in a group for a bit called "Our Native Daughters," also a folk-y kind of group.

To my mind she's more of a modern blues artist, with a combo of ethereal songs and very powerful wailing, but she's not a preservationist in any way. She said this song, "Black Myself," is one of the first she wrote that was truly confrontational - which you can easily see in the lyrics. She does this acoustic a lot (her band got stuck at the airport when I saw her), but the electric version is also very haunting. A sample of the lyrics, from verse 2, which is pretty great, and then the song turns, and becomes affirming, if you read the entire lyrics, but this is just a part:

I don't pass the test of the paper bag
'Cause I'm black myself
I pick the banjo up and they sneer at me
'Cause I'm black myself
You better lock your doors when I walk by
'Cause I'm black myself
You look me in my eyes but you don't see me
'Cause I'm black myself

Is you washed in the blood of your chattel?
'Cause the lamb's rotted away
When they stopped shipping work horses
They bred their own anyway, ooh
Black myself

Rather than compiling a last 5 out list I am compiling a 5 HOW THE **** DID YOU FORGET THIS YOU DUMB *** list. I'm up to 4 and we still have 13 rounds to go, so I hope my derp:round ratios dramatically improve or I'm gonna have to expand beyond 5.

When I was 13, I took guitar lessons. My teacher had all of his students play in a guitar recital about 6 months into my lessons. Two friends and I played Hotel California. To help prepare, I probably listened to the song 1000 times. Somehow, I still like it. I put the version from the studio album in my list, but I should have put the version from Eagles Live, which is better IMO.

Cookout/BBQ music of the first order. Not frenzied, but locks into its groove and will not be stopped. If I'm having a bad day and this comes on, I'm all-of-a-sudden having a good day.

Also, if you think this song is about "dancing" you're even more unsuspecting than I am.
I was only familiar with the Pete Townsend live cover - nice version linked. Very fun song.

I had a good feeling that Miss Simone would start to show up here soon. Love this one.

I think "The Summer of Soul" doc with Simone's amazing performance in it was previously mentioned in this thread. The "What Happened, Miss Simone?" documentary another great one, just focused on her life and career.

(I Know) I’m Losing You – The Temptations
My dumb-*** "one song per artist" rule cost me this one. It's been covered to death by classic rockers, but they all lose to the GOAT. Those freaking horns, man. Plus, though both Rod Stewart and the dude from Rare Earth were fine singers, they weren't David Ruffin. And neither of those bands had the finesse of the Funk Brothers.

Nailed it @New Binky the Doormat

See how good it would be if you actually stayed in a draft until the end?
You know ... this exercise is kind of like a draft where you just make all your picks up front. And then someone else does the Lord's work in rolling all the picks out day by day and facilitating discussion. And if someone gets busy and has to duck out for a few days -- it's all good. You don't fall behind a dozen picks or anything like that.

Looking forward to more in this format :thumbup:

When I was 13, I took guitar lessons. My teacher had all of his students play in a guitar recital about 6 months into my lessons. Two friends and I played Hotel California. To help prepare, I probably listened to the song 1000 times. Somehow, I still like it. I put the version from the studio album in my list, but I should have put the version from Eagles Live, which is better IMO.
Want it switched?

When I'm searching out YouTube links for those that don't have them, I often let the song play while I'm looking up the next link, unless I know I hate it and want to pause the video right away. In doing this last night, I heard the first bit of that
Hall
& Oates song and am intrigued to hear the rest today.

I also left the Pantera one on and joked to OH, "Is this your favorite Pantera song?" on the assumption he would hate the band. He then went on a 10-minute discourse about Pantera and how good some of the songs are. Hmph, who knew.

Always loved that song, the guitar part hooked me and I was really surprised b/c it didn't sound like the typical H&O song, it has a nice, heaviness to it. I always felt like H&O songs really went light and restrained with the electric guitar parts back in the day. Anyway, wiki says Allen Gorrie co-wrote the song with John Hall and Dave Stewart from the Eurythmics gets credit for electric guitar work on this song. The album was released in 1997 and then just re-released in March of 2022 on streaming, vinyl and cd.

Favorite new to me:
New Binky the Doormat: Criminal – Fiona Apple

Wat???

:shrug:

I don't know this song, either. Haven't had time for the new-to-me songs today so will check it out tomorrow.

I really like all of her stuff - but her first album "Tidal" is fantastic. Really tough choice between "Criminal" and two other songs off of it and the entire album is killer.

"Sleep to Dream"

"Shadowboxer"
