revisiting a cult classic
by request: the lost city of z (james gray, 2016)

music friday: 2008

It's time to end the pretense that I know much about these songs. I turned 55 in 2008, and the only ones of the following ten songs that had an impression on me were the Bruce song and "That's Not My Name". So I present these without comment, which will mostly be the default the rest of the year, as I use Music Friday to catch up on music I missed.

Hercules and Love Affair, "Blind".

Lil Wayne, "A Milli".

Portishead, 'The Rip".

Bruce Springsteen, "The Wrestler". The title song from an Oscar-nominated film. Bruce won a Golden Globe for this one. I saw him sing this in concert once, in 2009.

Estelle featuring Kanye West, "American Boy".

Erykah Badu, "The Healer".

Girls, "Hellhole Ratrace".

Ting Tings, "That's Not My Name". I saw them open for Pink.

Chairlift, "Bruises".

TV on the Radio, "Golden Age".
