Har Mar Superstar – Lady, You Shot Me

Every time I hear doo wop, or anything that sounds like doo wop, I wish I lived through that era. On the bright side, great soul music is very much still alive. The energy behind soul music feels so powerful and real and positive, even if the subject is sad. It’s just wonderful.

Moonsea is such a fitting name for this song. Most of it moves along beautifully and gently, rocking like a calm sea. But the chorus is like a sudden rip-tide. Maybe that takes the analogy too far, and maybe the chorus isn’t really that exciting, but it is for me.

The Greenhornes – Show Me Love

Similar lo-fi sound to yesterday’s song, but rock instead of folk. Sounds like a modern, more bluesy J. Geils band.

Sun Kil Moon – Jim Wise

Is fun a genre? Sounds kinda like Franz Ferdinand but more fun.
