Doin' the Friday Shuffle
Been a while.
1. " Sanctuary" - Miles Davis - Bitches Brew
Sweetly mellow jazz.
2. "Opportunity" - Elvis Costello - Get Happy!!
Elvis in soul groove.
3. "One of dese mornings" - Gershwin - Porgy and Bess
I really would like to see a production of this one day.
4. "Blue Eden" - Neil Young - Sleeps with Angels
Smoky, ominous, plod-rock.
5. "The Ludlows" - James Horner - Legends of the Fall
Sweet, wistful piano piece from an underrated score.
6. "The Most Wonderful Time of the Year" - Johnny Mathis - Now That's What I Call Christmas
Kind of essential.
7. "Southern Man" - Neil Young - After the Goldrush
The best kind of angry rock.
8. "I Can't Give You Anything But Love" - Louis Armstrong - The Essential Louis Armstrong
9. "It Wasn't Meant to Happen" - Stephen Sondheim - Marry Me a Little
A cut Sondheim song - pretty and melancholy.
10. "Beautiful" - Aimee Mann - The Forgotten Arm
Mid-tempo rock, with a nicely understated melody.
