The Aura Stays The Same


 


Rob

The Police - "Walking On The Moon"

I couldn't decide on a track from Synchronicity. Such a solid album, although Regatta de Blanc was awesome too


Mr. T

Van Morrison - "Back On Top"


G-Man

Iggy Pop & Sum 41 - "Little Know It All"

I've only recently come around to Sum 41. Was kinda put off by their quasi-forced "punk-itude" back when they first came out in the early 2000s. However, i've always loved this track. From Iggy Pop's album Skull Ring. A Santana-esque mash-up, featuring a bunch of punk acts providing the music for Pop's legendary vocals. I need more songs like this that start at 10 and end at 10. All the way through



Doug

Daft Punk - "Digital Love"

Daft Punk 1993 - 2021



Dano

The Blue Stones - "Grim"



Jonny HP

James Taylor - "Fire + Rain"



Mike D

Buddy Miles - "Them Changes"



J.B.

The Vandals - "Jackass"

The Vandals have steadily been a punk band and contributed to,not only the 90's & 2000s punk rock revival but have helped the entire scene since the 80's. More notably so with their albums prior to 2000.
Needless to say, they've put out a lot of great jams. They've seen a long line up of front and back band members, but haven't skipped and skimped when it comes to pumping out great tracks. Anyone heard of cowpunk? These guys have dabbled... This jam is one of the many great tunes that zaps me back to some good parties and feel good times. Happy Freaky Friday!

Angako's Dream


 


Rob

Blink-182 - "Mutt"


Mr. T

Jimmy Buffett - "A Pirate Looks At 40"


G-Man

The Real McKenzies - "Chip"

Nothing really major to talk about with this one. Just a wicked, badass, mofo-in' Canadian Scotch Punk song, that blasted through my car speakers this morning on the AM commute. Enjoy!


Doug

DVOD - "Scotty Doesn't Know"




Dano

3 Inches Of Blood - "Look Out"

For Ronnie James Motherfuckin' Dio




Jonny HP

The Strumbellas - "Spirits"


Mike D

The All-American Rejects - "Bleed Into Your Mind"


J.B.

Big L - "Put It On"

Back in '99, Big L was shot 9 times and killed in his home neighbourhood in Harlem. Although he wasn't a junior to the scene, some say he would have been a significant contender to being more influential than Jay-Z (not my words). It's crazy to think what they'd both have done to the hip-hop world if he wasn't gunned down. Even crazier, his childhood friend was arrested for his murder, although not convicted. 17 years later, he'd meet the same fate as Big L.

Lonesome Acceptance


 


Rob

Counting Crows - "Untitled (Love Song)"



Mr. T

Fleetwood Mac - "Everywhere"



G-Man

Nine Inch Nails - "Dead Souls"

One of the coolest movies with the best soundtracks to come out of the 90's was The Crow. Mixing up 80's goth culture and alternative 90's sounds made this one memorable. That combined with the haunting circumstances of the movie, makes any song off this Soundtrack permanently linked to an era in time. This Nine Inch Nails track is actually a cover of a Joy Division song


Doug

The Tragically Hip - "Long Time Running"



Dano

Thornley - "Come Again"



Jonny HP

Pat Benetar - "We Belong"



Mike D

Saint Raymond - "Younger"


J.B.

Souls Of Mischief - "93 'til Infinity"

Here's an old school track that requires your attention. The Souls of Mischief were probably not as familiar as other booming hip-hop artists of the early and mid 90s in itself. But definitely a few names of noteriety are synonymous with the likes of SoM (Del tha Funky Homosapien). This track is debatedly the largest single they put out. Without it, other follow on hip-hop 'groups' wouldn't get the touch to the public without the bolstering this track did to support the West coast hip-hop genre of the time. Enjoy you're Friday and if you're looking for more similar music try some illmatic (Nas) or The Pharcyde. I love the experimental days of Hip Hop.

Actual Abyss


 


Rob

Tracy Chapman - "New Beginning"



Steve Miller Band - "Rock'n Me"



Mr. T

Jackson Browne - "The Waiting"



G-Man

Pink Floyd - "The Great Gig In The Sky"

And i'm not afraid of dying. Any time will do, I don't mind. Why should I be frightened of dying? There's no reason for it - you've got to go sometime.


Doug 

Dan + Shay - "Keeping Score" feat. Kelly Clarkson


Dano

Steve Miller Band - "Swingtown"


Missy Armstrong - "Ain't Going Down To The River"





Jonny HP

Jefferson Airplane - "Somebody To Love"


Mike D

Sufjan Stevens - "Death With Dignity"

This definitely has the beach bonfire by the ocean kind of vibe for a Friday....enjoy the Friday love!

Cellar Door


 

Rob

Our Lady Peace - "Not Enough"



Mr. T

Geordie Kieffer - "Red Line"



G-Man

Skunk Anansie - "Weak"

I feel like back 1996 I made a note to my self to check out some songs by this band, as they seemed like one that deserved a deep dive and the type of band that i'd enjoy. Well 25 years later and I finally got around to following through on that and 15 year old me was right



Doug

Billy Joel - "She's Always A Woman"

Both of these songs have been stuck in my head all week, so I feel I must submit them together


Jim Croce - "Operator (That's Not The Way It Feels)"


Dano

The Trishas - "Little Sweet Cigars"




Jonny HP

Beach Boys - "Good Vibrations"


Mike D

Assuming We Survive - "Open Water"



J.B.

Coolio - "Fantastic Voyage"

Nothing makes you feel more nostalgic, if you were lucky enough to be around during the golden age of 90's Hip Hop and if  you weren't, it's still a good all around track.  I put this sweet jam on and it really picked my sorry ass up off the floor. Happy Friday feels, folks!

Poor Tithonus


 


Rob

Fall Out Boy - "Of All The Gin Joints In All The World"


Mr. T

Sammy Johns - "Chevy Van"


G-Man

The Cranberries - "Free To Decide"

This song has been in my head a bit lately. Not exactly sure why. It was definitely one of the videos in heavy rotation back when I was first getting into music into 1996. Memories of those times, that Summer in particular, are always welcome. RIP Dolores O'Riordan


Doug

Michel Buble - "Love You Anymore"


Dano

Puscifer - "Bedlamite"



Jonny HP

David Bowie - "I'm Afraid Of Americans"



Mike D

Incubus - "Pardon Me"


The Fratellis - "Doginabag"


J.B.

The Kids In The Hall - "Daves I Know"

Sometimes we have a certain song that really brings things home for us. Maybe it's a song that was playing for your first dance with a girl. Maybe a first anything? Well....this one's for all the Dave's out there

Step Through Grey


 


Rob

Broadway - "Gods and Men"



Mr. T

The Emotions - "The Best Of My Love"



G-Man

Stone Poneys - "Different Drum"

The evolution of music has always interested me. I started sifting through major and minor hits from the 60's to kind of get a grip on Pop and Rock's roots and DAMN there are some gems I forgot about! Take the Stone Poneys for example, timeless music with brilliant yet simple lyrics. And how gorgeous is Linda Ronstadt here?


The Four Seasons - "Beggin'"

And this one is just one of the absolute best from the 60's. Feels like it was way ahead of it's time. One of those songs that makes you time travel, sit back with a drink and turn off the rest of the world


Doug

Mos Def - "Sunshine"



Dano

Tears For Fears - "Shout"



Jonny HP

TBD

Mike D

Disturbed - "Shout 2000"




J.B.

Barnes & Barnes - "Fish Heads"

Alright now, before you ask me, "JB, what the literal fuck?". I thought to myself, this song is kind of timeless. With the world being weird , awkward and pretty crazy right now, what better way to sort of celebrate and make the times a little lighter. Also, fun fact, none other than Bill Paxton directed this 1980 smash. He even appears in the video. Enjoy the soup.
