On Friday, Dec. 7, The Back Door will welcome long-time friend and neighbor singer/songwriter/... READ MORE
If you have read my columns before, you know I often reference things that made growing up in the 70’s and 80’s unique.
If it were 2 o’clock in the afternoon, my alarm clock would sound like you were in the room with an air-raid siren. However, it’s 6:30 a.m. and it sounds distant and faint like it’s under a pillow at the end of a long hallway.
Happenstance brought this week’s tune back in circulation for me. As most all of us know, life’s road can be a bit bumpy at times.
For a good friend of mine, the road had become positively third world, i.e. rough, bleak, and unpredictable.
It’s boogie woogie rock and roll again this week as I’m air-guitaring to “Go Faster” from The Black Crowes 1999 release By Your Side. Do yourself a favor and give it a listen, just be sure you turn it way up when you do.
For my column this week, I’m listening to a band I’ve only recently considered—The Killers. Specifically, I’m locked in on their single “All These Things I’ve Done” from their 2004 debut album, Hot Fuss.
Choosing a song for my column this week was easy, and it’s apropos of the topic I’ve chosen.
Grab your preferred listening device and find the title track from from Paul Simon’s 1975 solo effort, Still Crazy After All These Years. I don’t think his full bio is necessary here, but I will verify that I do mean that Paul Simon. The songwriting half of Simon & Garfunkel.
