Fri-YAY Playlist – 11-10-2019

I’ll be glad to see the back end of this week for so many reasons.

One reason being, this is the week we said goodbye to one of my musical heroes, Ginger Baker. When I was growing up and educating myself in what I thought was cool in music, I was introduced to Cream by my Mum. I had heard loads of cream stuff (the famous stuff) on Eric Clapton compilations, but I hadn’t differentiated Cream as a unit from being a unit that featured Eric Clapton.

Once I started digging into the catalogue of Cream and came across Ginger Baker’s astounding drum solo track Toad, my mind was blown and it soon joined the other mega drum solo I knew of at the time Moby Dick by John Bonham of Led Zeppelin.

The playlist this week is a hodge podge of new stuff, old stuff and to be frank some out of the box stuff. All the songs included this week have either made me think or cheered me up a bit.

Hope you enjoy the playist and have a wicked weekend.

Fri-YAY Playlist 04-10-19 (Late)

It has been a super weird and stressful week since I last posted. Work stuff, breaking my teeth stuff and new DLC release for Destiny 2. All of the above has made this past week, quite possibly, one of the hardest of the year so far. I can’t talk about most of what has gone on, but needless to say, it has all put me behind this week and the post I had intended to make during the week about the Sci-Fi event I went to last weekend has been delayed to Monday.

So, this weeks playlist is a day late and it has some “out-there” stuff on there.

The brand new single from Manchester band Elbow is a revelation. I have put in a german language Punk Track by Die Toten Hosen (for non German speaking peeps – it means The Dead Trousers)

There are a couple of tracks that contain “bad words” so listen with caution if you have little ears around.

Thanks for checking this weeks playlist out – see ya next week.

Fri-Yay Playlist – 27-09-2019

Well, it’s been a weird week, the whole world seems to be turning itself inside out and upside down. I am not sure if we’ll see next Fri-Yay playlist, as weird as the world is, anything is possible.

Here is this weeks playlist (on the right day) I hope you enjoy it. Remember, it’s not a themed list,, just some of the many songs I was listening too this past week, and ifthey seem to have a link to them, then it’s because I was intregued by a theme and went hunting for music to explore those feelings.

Until next time…

I tried the weekly playlist thing earlier in the year, it wasn’t very popular, but I enjoyed the curration process. To that end, here is the first FriYAY playlist.

I won’t be doing the whole YouTube version as that was ten times the amount of work to get right,

Hope you enjoy tunes.

End of The Week – The Covers Edition

The Covers Edition

This weeks playlist and videos are inspired by my little trip out last night to see a Pink Floyd Tribute band, Think Floyd. These guys are just awesome. So if you are in the UK, check out their Gigs page and if they come to a town near you check them out, you will not be disappointed. I’ll give more details in a post with pictures sometime next week.

Now, Cover Versions of songs. I have been fascinated by these little curios for years. There is always something interesting to me about when a band takes someone else’s song and makes it their own. Rock and Metal bands are a great source of these, as those styles of music always lend themselves to making a statement with a well-known song.

The main problem though, is that most cover versions done, are usually either on some really obscure tribute album or as a filler track on a record; or they are played live, and the 99.9999999999% of the world’s population wasn’t at a gig and will probably never get to see the masterpieces that bands spend 15 minutes on at Soundcheck.

With that said, this week, there is no alternative video playlist from YouTube, so my Spotify Playlist is there, but I will add a few of my favourite Covers in a playlist, call it an added extra from me to you.
