happy birthday, starbuck!

music friday: 1992

Radiohead, "Creep". I'm one of those Don't Get Radiohead geezers. But I love this song.

Dr. Dre, "Nuthin' But a 'G' Thang". Dangerous, because Dre's music sounds so good, and Snoop's rapping sounds so good, and that's fine until you actually listen to the lyrics.

PJ Harvey, "Sheela Na Gig". You exhibitionist.

Bruce Springsteen, "If I Should Fall Behind". Took on added meaning after the E Street Reunion. On the last day of the last lecture class I ever taught, I played this video at the end.

k.d. lang, "Constant Craving". When she went from Patsy Cline to  Julie London.

The Pharcyde, "Passin' Me By". You do not know me but I know you very well.

Sophie B. Hawkins, "Damn I Wish I Was Your Lover". Surprised by the Led Zeppelin sample?

Mary J. Blige, "Real Love". Hip hop soul.

Body Count, "Cop Killer". Law and Order.

The Cure, "Friday I'm in Love". For me, the difference between The Cure and Radiohead is that with The Cure, I like more than one song.

Bonus: What Bruce Springsteen actually sounded like in 1992. He toured with the unfairly maligned Other Band. Maligned because the albums he was touring behind weren't as popular/good as what came before. Maligned especially because they weren't The E Street Band. We saw him twice with this band ... they were fine.

 A disappointing Spotify playlist ... missing Dre and Body Count.

That’s a great Springsteen song, one I hadn’t heard. I really haven’t spent any time with those two albums he released then.
