A trip through a variety of tunes today…
To commemorate Paris Hilton’s first trip to the slammer, we start off with …
Steve Earle and the V-Roys – In the Jailhouse Now (mp3) – from Songs of Jimmie Rodgers: A Tribute
One of those songs that is perpetually in my head. “Sunday night and it’s half past nine…”
Bruce Cockburn – Northern Lights (mp3) – from Dancing in the Dragon’s Jaws
Heard this on the radio a few days ago for the first time in years. Excellent tune, great lyrics… it’s Cracker…
Cracker – Eurotrash Girl (mp3) – from Greatest Hits Redux
Upon hearing this song for the first time, my three year old daughter proclaimed: “This song scares me daddy”. Daddy turned it off. Another Italian film soundtrack that I heard on David Johansen’s Mansion of Fun.
Franco Ferrara & Goffredo Petrassi – Per Cercare Consolazione (mp3) – from Cronaca Familiare (Score)
A new tune from Sri Lankan hip hop lovin’ seductress M.I.A.

An old school joint from Masta Ace…
