I just looked at the recent playlist for Coffee House on Sirius, and it wasn't what I expected. I thought it would be like Jim Croce, James Taylor, etc., but it wasn't. It was more recent stuff from the last couple decades.  Most picks are like that, but my John Denver pick is not. Oh well, John Denver is a singer-songwriter with acoustic songs from another era. 

I did the same thing. I didn't recognize any of the artists and after trying to listen to 7-8 different songs I gave up and drafted 80s. Apparently coffee music is something I hate too.

"Nobody'll buy that morbid son of a #####."  That is what George Jones said after he recorded this song.  He hated it, but he was perfect for the song, because he was at the lowest point in his career and life. The song is mournful and Jones could feel that pain. Alcohol and drugs had consumed him, and he had built a reputation for not showing up at shows (No Show Jones). He had become a sad country song. The recording of the song was also a challenge, because Jones kept singing the melody of another song, and he slurred his words during the spoken portion. His producer Billy Sherrill was able to work some magic, and piece the song together. It would become known as the greatest country song of all time. George got his career back on track, and he went back to some of the places he was supposed to play at, and he played for free to pay back the promoters. He would say that "a four-decade career had been salvaged by a three-minute song.”

This draft is only loosely based on the actual Sirius Channel but yes that's more modern singer/songwriters.

70.RA  Level 42 - Something About You  Spotify  YouTube

Going with the song I had in mind, which for some reason I always mix up with Eephus's pick, "We Close Our Eyes," as well as the band from his pick, Go West.  Don't know why.  Nothing cool, just cheesy-ish 80s goodness.

i took this for first wave, but honestly it's good enough to go on both

I was always impressed by the bass player who sang lead vocals while slapping out the bassline.

We now have two picks from today that have already been selected for other playlists. In one case by the same person. How do we feel re allow or ask for repick? We haven't bothered with anything resembling rules, other than the dice rolls, in a while.

Oh no worries, I can repick mine.  I only checked 80s.

Did we already do aha - Take on Me?  If not, replace with that.  I was blown away by this acoustic version with an aged but super-hot lead singer in 2017.  

ETA:  Look at all those women hoping to throw their panties on stage.

70.YM - Digging Your Scene - The Blow Monkeys

 

This song was always a guilty pleasure for me.  The song, not the blow or the monkeys. 

I don't think I've ever heard this before. Probably would have hated it at the time, but it's got all the elements of the best guilty-pleasure '80s pop.

I've never seen middle-aged women look so wistfully at something.

Oh hey, Beatles again tomorrow!

Beatles channel? I have no desire to pick any from Margaritaville or clog up the Pearl Jammy goodness, and otb_lifer can vouchsafe for my feelings about Bruce.

@krista4I am totally fine with it if you want to pick tomorrow  -- if you have time.

Well, he won't back down
No, he won't back down
You can stand him up at the gates of hell
But he won't back down

No, he'll stand his ground
Won't be turned around
And he'll keep this world from draggin' him down
Gonna stand his ground

I'm glad pip pointed out the buffet station is only like 87% Buffett. Otherwise this would've seemed pretty restrictive

That Jack Johnson Banana Pancake song seems like it would work for Margaritaville.

Have to think that would have been an interesting place to be at the time (the college, not the library).

I was just thinking about posting about hotbeds of somewhat radical stuff. I was gonna tease Eephus and call him radical but I'm not sure why. Why is that? SDS? Patty Hearst? What am I thinking of?

I'm not that old.  By the time I was there, the Vietnam-era political tensions had settled down although you could still see where the bomb repairs had been done on Sterling Hall. 

Student politics consisted of erecting a Statue of Liberty on a frozen lake next to campus.

Yeah, I thought you were more mid-seventies. I would have just been teasing about prior radicalism. Just wondering why. I Googled it. It was a hotbed, but not the start of the SDS
