Steve Perry's "Strung Out" was featured in a recent Psych episode and Datarock's "Amarillion" was played in Chuck. Why yes, if you've figured nothing out from any of these blog entries, I get a lot of my new music from television shows.
We also had a cabin fever section of the show featuring the Muppets, R.E.M. and Bon Jovi. My own personal snowed-in song was "Aside" by The Weakerthans. The line "and I'm losing all these stupid games that I swore I'd never play" was stuck in my head all week. TV on the Radio's cover of Yeah Yeah Yeahs' "Modern Romance" was new to me and I really enjoyed it.
Oh yeah, and it was two days before Anna Howard Shaw Day so we played a few songs for all the lovers out there. Ok, so maybe they were just songs that mentioned love of various varieties. The Magnetic Fields' "The Book of Love" off of their 69 Love Songs and Bloc Party's "This Modern Love" are fairly old favorites for me, and added with the newer "Cosmic Love" from Florence + the Machine started off the bit, with the classic "Love Will Tear Us Apart" by Joy Division and then the epic "Elephant Love Medley" from Moulin Rouge.
Oh, and then Bruce Springsteen's "Born to Run" because I was heading out to New Jersey after the show. I should've played "Atlantic City" but I like "Born to Run" better.
