Sad to hear about the passing of the one and only George Jones. It’s been amazing to see the posts coming up on Facebook from all around the world and from creators and fans of so many different genres of music. He lived the life of his songs and he traveled many roads (sometimes on a Riding Lawnmower). He leaves behind an amazing legacy of song and lore.
We move on… and time is very short.

Shuffle after the JUMP…. JUMP
- “Selfish Again” by Game Theory from Distortion of Glory (1993) – orginally on Pointed Accounts of People You Know (1983)
What a tough couple of weeks for the world of music. I’m glad to have had the chance to feature so many great songs from the late Scott Miller’s band Game Theory.
- “Open You Up” by Only Living Boy from Hide Nothing (2011)
I’ve been hearing the name “Only Living Boy” come up recently from my many New York/New Jersey friends, so I finally decided to see what all the talk was about. I get it now!
- “Low (Reprise)” by Ghost and Goblin from SUPERHORRORCASTLELAND (2013)
An instrumental reprise from the scary good New York band. Super pumped to see a Nashville slot on their July concert schedule.
- “White Night” by Charmboy from Let It Feed (2011)/The Appetizer Built4BBQ Sampler (2013)
Another great track off the superbly awesome The Appetizer music sampler. This Albany, NY band rocks out!
Before we get to the Daily Playlist: Ear to the Ground sends out Anniversary to one of cutest and rockingist couples I know – Matthew and Livia from The End Men.

We had some bad storms roll through between 1:00 and 2:00a.m. which wouldn’t be so bad if I didn’t have to wake up at 4:30. Blah…. But, lack of sleep is part of the rock ‘n’ roll lifestyle right? Whatever…
Here we go… part of the fun of letting the magical mystery shuffle option pick my morning music playlist is when theme emerge out of the randomness of it all. Or perhaps, the theme is all in my head… does it matter?
Actually a couple of thematic things happened today, but the overarching them as expressed in the subtitle of today’s post is Super Couples of Music….
First Super Couple is George and Tammy. The classic (We’re Not) The Jet Set name drops Rome, Georgia; Athens, Texas; and Paris, Tennessee. Explore more about this song by clicking the picture below:
Super Couple #2 has back-to-back tracks on today’s shuffle – which make’s sub-theme #1 – The Chris and Tina show:
1st up is Take Me to the River is the classic cover of the Al Green classic song by Chris and Tina’s earlier band called Talking Heads – maybe you’ve heard of them.
2nd up for the Chirs and Tina show is the 2001 version of the 1981 hit single Genius of Love by Chris and Tina’s later band – Tom Tom Club.

Our final Super Couple and fulfilling our second sub-theme (The Genius Theme) comes from
Andrea and Mark of the band MAKAR with the title track from their latest Funeral Genius. Take a longer look at this track below:
