I may have some good news on the job front. Keep your fingers crossed.
1. Shotgun Blues- Jason and the Scorchers
2. What Goes On- The Velvet Underground
3. Take Me Down To Lovers Lane- Robert Mitchum
4. Calling Dr. Love- Shandi's Addiction
5. Little Bit O' Soul- The Music Explosion

7. Brooklyn (Owes the Charmer Under Me)- Steely Dan
8. The Usual- John Hiatt
9. Anarchy In the U.K.- The Sex Pistols
10. Bob Dylan- Who Killed Davey Moore?
1. Great underappreciated band from the eighties.
2. I somehow missed this song, despite being a huge Velvet Underground fan, until we learned it in a class I took at the Old Town School of Folk music. It's since become a favorite. For all the tawdry content in their music, people forget that VU had a lot of just gorgeous songs.
3. From the great Robert Mitchum calypso album.
4. This is from a Kiss cover album that came out about ten years ago, and belongs in everyone's cd collection.
5. A garage-rock classic from the sixties.
6. I'm not a jazz fan, but love this album, American Garage. Bonus: it has an Airstream on the cover.
7. From Steely Dan's great first album.
8. Bob Dylan did a great, raucous cover of this song.
9. I love the Sex Pistols, but saw recently that Johnny Rotten was claiming that the Pistols were more punk than the Ramones. Yeah, in your dreams, Johnny. Bite me.
10. A classic early Dylan protest song, about a boxer who was killed in the ring.
