Today, we'll start with "The Chemicals Between Us," by Bush. Now, you probably won't know who Bush is if you're not a 90s fan. So get acquainted. Bush is British alternative and will be releasing a new album in February 2011. So stay tuned to hear new music from them!
Next we have "If I Ever Leave This World Alive," by Flogging Molly. Flogging Molly is an Irish-American Celtic Punk band from LA. Flogging Molly has recently announced two more shows for the 2011 European schedule: June 17th in Neuhaisen ob Eck, Germany at the Southside Festival and June 19th in Scheeßel, Germany at the Hurricane Festival. Get your tickets! Also, the new record is set for release May 2011.
Next, is the all time classic; the all time fabulous-most-epic song in the universe "White Room," by Cream. Cream is (will always be) a British rock band from the 1960s; good old classic rock. Listen, enjoy, and listen to it again.
Now, you can't take a trip to the 60s without listening to Jefferson Airplane. Next in our Monday Morning playlist we have "Today," by Jefferson Airplane. I love this song. Especially the line,
to be any more than all I am would be a liebecause really, I can only be all I can be. So, be yourself... err be all you can be!
Going down the list we have "Sun and Steel," by Iron Butterfly. (The guys who did inagaddadavida). Sun and Steel is the sixth and final album released by Iron Butterfly in 1975 and it's quite the beauty. I suggest you listen to the entire album.
Alright, one more song from the 60s/70s, yes? Yes. Up next is, "Dream A Little Dream Of Me," by the Mamas and the Papas. The Mamas and the Papas are truly an inspiration. They've sold over 100 million records world wide and had 11 Top 40 Hit Singles!
Next up is "O Children," by Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds. Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds have been rocking since 1983. Also, "O Children," appeared in the 2010 film Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 1. Very cool!
It's time for a band from Oklahoma! Next is "All I Ever Wanted," by Aranda. Aranda is a rock band from Oklahoma City. I saw them live at Rocklahoma 2010 and even got their autograph! I probably took a picture with them too... on my friend's camera which might or might not have survived.
Now, I take you for a spin with "Grenade," by Bruno Mars. Bruno Mars (Peter Gene Hernandez) is an American singer-songwriter and music producer from Hawaii. He's 25, he's been in the music scene since 2007, and he's at the top of the charts lately.
OK for the last song we shall have techno: "As the Rush Comes," by Motorcycle style techno. "As the Rush Comes," is a rock-inspired song that became a number one single on Billboard's Hot Dance Airplay chart in 2004. It is amazing. Enjoy it!
Well that's it for this week's Monday Morning. I know, I know that Australia is probably sitting near Tuesday, but it's Monday here in the US. (Sorry Australia!)
