Friday Five

The Friday Five: February 13, 2009

The best laid plans… I had intended on launching the new (and improved) format, but alas time and life got in the way, next week I promise the new look (and a new take) on the Friday Five… until then here’s this weeks all to brief five!

For those who have not joined in the Friday Five here is all you need to know; each Friday I hit the shuffle button on my iTunes and share my five and drop a little knowledge and insight for each track. Sometimes there is a playlist involved, sometimes there isn’t. Sometimes we have guest, but most of the time it’s just me.

The rest is up to you, our friends and readers! Fire up your media player of choice and share the first five random track of your shuffle in the comments. The more the merrier!

The Five:

“All Night Long (All Night)” – Lionel Ritchie (from Can’t Slow Down)

“I Know” – The Derek Trucks Band (from Already Free)

“Fopp” – The Ohio Players (from Honey)

“I Don’t Care” – Fall Out Boy (from Folie à Deux)

“Rock and Roll Ain’t Noise Pollution” – AC/DC (from Back in Black)

What’s playing in your neck of the woods?

    First, let me say that “All Night Long” is one of my favorite guilty pleasures. I even did it at karaoke once in the Dominican Republic. Props on the Players track as well.

    1. Van Halen – “Bottoms Up!”
    2. Prince – “Acknowledge Me”
    3. Simian Mobile Disco – “I Believe”
    4. Bonde Do Role – “Geremia”
    5. Prince – “Sister”

    Two Prince songs makes for a good Friday Five in my book!

    Late Friday evening in this neck . . .

    1. “Pea Vine Blues” by Charlie Musselwhite from “Down The Dirt Road: Songs Of Charley Patton,” 2001. The album was one of the myriad tributes to be released in recent years. But it’s a good one, and Mr. Musselwhite does a good job on this track.

    2. “Six Days On The Road” by West from “West,” 1969. I know nothing about West, and I’m not even sure how I came to have the album in the player. This is an okay version of a great song.

    3. “Please Read The Letter” by Robert Plant & Alison Krauss from “Raising Sand,” 2007. Great stuff! The Grammys got it right on this song and the album.

    4. “A Place In The Sun” by Pablo Cruise from “A Place In The Sun,” 1977. Hey, some folks dis Pablo Cruise, but I like ’em, as a change of pace if nothing else.

    5. “Shaky Ground” by Delbert McClinton from “The Jealous Kind,” 1980. Closing the Five with some good roadhouse rock. Have good weekends, all!
