“You’d think that people would have had enough of silly love songs.”
It’s Valentine’s Day. So whether you’re feeling the love or whether you fall of the J. Geils Band’s side of things: “I’ve been through diamonds/I’ve been through minks/I’ve been through it all/Love stinks”
Here at Ear to the Ground we have you covered. Honestly, I don’t know if any of the songs on today’s list qualifies as a love song, but I guess it’s all in the eye of the beholder. I love all these songs.
First up is some Brazilian Post-Rock goodies from former Band of the Week From the Outside. The Prosecutor another track off the new Sound of Motion album offers crunching guitar and what I assume is “found”dialogue and ends with some electronic sounds.
Next we shift gears (and probably strip a few in the process). We have the opening number from the 1986 London Cast recording of Cabaret. Wilkommen takes us into the Kit Kat Klub in Berlin in 1931.
Next up is the late great Etta James doing The Rock and you can’t help but feel the pain.
Finally, a track by a great band from Saratoga Springs, New York, Skeletons in the Piano. The song is called The Price Put on You Here is the video:
And here is a ReverbNation widget of the song:
