Thumbed Up on Pandora

January 12, 2012

Pandora seems to be the best way for me to find new and awesome music and also old music that I love. So, these are the last 10 songs I “thumbed up” on Pandora, excluding songs I’ve already mentioned in previous music posts. (if you don’t use Pandora, you’re really missing out).

Bon Iver – Skinny Love

The Band – The Weight

The Black Keys – Next Girl

Adele – Melt My Heart to Stone

Alain Clark – Blow Me Away

Needtobreathe – Won’t Turn Back

The Beatles – Dear Prudence

Jimi Hendrix – All Along the Watchtower

The Pimps of Joytime – Workin All The Time (One of my favorite band names ever!)

Derek James – One More Day (Live youtube videos blow, but this is the best I could find. You can and should listen to it on Grooveshark)


Oldies but goodies

Yes, it’s another music post.

Here are some of my “classic” favorites. Everyone knows and loves most of these. Others might be more obscure, depending on if you have good taste in music or not.

Billy Joel – Vienna

Elton John – Bennie and the Jets

Tell me you don’t “rock out” to this song when it comes on in the car. You can’t. Because everyone does.

The Beatles – I am the Walrus

Boston – Foreplay-Longtime

One of my favorite Boston songs of all time.

Frank Zappa – Muffin Man

This is the album version, which is fan-freakin-tastic.

Here’s the live version, which includes one of my favorite mind-blowing & face-melting Zappa solos.

Electric Light Orchestra – Mr. Blue Sky

Stix – Renegade

Led Zepplin – Bron Yr Aur

One of my all time favorite lyricless songs. It’s just beautiful.

Seals & Crofts – Summer Breeze

Here’s another version by Jason Mraz that I love too.

Pink Floyd – Fearless

The Animals – House of the Rising Sun

Interesting note: one of the first songs I learned on the guitar. Of course after the beginning of Stairway, like everyone else.
