The Best Songs I've Heard in AGES...
"Ballad of Hollis Brown", Iggy and the Stooges. AMAZING guitar work by James Williamson. Song is just him, Iggy's vocal and a beat box. Unbelievable.
Also, Iggy's "The Passenger." Can't stop playing it.
"Coal Hole Cavalry", Black Pig Border Morris. Eerie morris tune set to a march beat. I borrowed it for Turk in Rennie 2. And thanked them in the Acknowledgments, of course!
"Bring On the Wonder", Susan Enan/Sarah MacLachlan. Heard this on "Bones", and it's just gorgeous.
Probly a few more. I'll add as I think of them...
(I've also been playing the hell out of "Ma Baker", by Boney M, but that's probably an acquired taste...)
