With all the music we have collected over the years it is easy to sometimes lose track of great albums that lie dormant in our collections. Every week I place my mp3 player on random and list the first five songs to appear no matter how odd they may be. Results can vary but that is the magic of...
The G-Man Random 5
1. Song : Three Days At Sea (Three Lost Years)
Artist : Great Lake Swimmers
Album : Great Lake Swimmers
Year : 2003
2. Song : Mrs. Robinson
Artist : The Lemonheads
Album : It's A Shame About Ray
Year : 1992
Evan Dando rocks up Simon & Garfunkel's classic. A sunshiney tune if ever there was one.
3. Song : Shed And Transcend
Artist : No Age
Album : Everything in Between
Year : 2010
The Random 5 is getting louder and louder as we progress. Like everything else on Everything In Between, "Shed And Transcend" rocks.
4. Song : The Jean Genie
Artist : David Bowie
Album : Aladdin Sane
Year : 1973
Rumours are afoot all Winter/early Spring that Daithi Bobo will make an appearance in Ireland this Summer. Nothing more to add to the initial rumour as we speak.
A small Jean Genie snuck off to the city
Strung out on lasers and slash back blazers
Ate all your razors while pulling the waiters
Talking bout Monroe and walking on Snow White
5. Song : Bring Back The Past
Artist : Okkervil River & Roky Erickson
Album : True Love Cast Out All Evil
Year : 2010
I have mixed feelings on this team-up but "Bring Back The Past" is one of the rockier, better tracks on the 2010 collaboration between Will Sheff's Okkervil River and Roky.
Long time no 5 you say?! Check out previous Random 5 posts here.
