The Beat Frequency - February 26, 2010

Hello there!

Welcome back to another edition of The Beat Frequency, College Park's own wild tribute to the phantasmagorical.  That word just makes me think of the circus. 

Anyway, we started off the show with some new Joanna Newsom from her recently released Have One on Me, along with some new music from She & Him, The Swell Season and Alphabeat.  We threw in "Particle Man" for fun.

The Thievery Corporation track was a gorgeous song that has fantastic lyrics.  Look it up.

My favorite song of the week was rediscovering "This Must Be The Place (Naive Melody)" from Talking Heads.  I forgot how much I love this song.

"The less we say about it the better
Make it up as we go along
Feet on the ground
Head in the sky
It's okay. I know nothing's wrong"

I'm actually just going to post lyrics from some of the remaining tracks instead of talking about them:

"I'm a loser and I'm not what I appear to be"
"Arrest this man, he talks in maths"
"For a little while you'll be here, the only good part of me"
"He's not perfect. He's my hero. Smashing the piano"

Ok, but I have to talk about this one.  "Make You Feel My Love" by Adele is what we played on the show today, but it's a Bob Dylan cover.   When I was younger, I knew the Garth Brooks cover really well and it was one of my favorite songs.  It's beautiful.  It's the one song that I play on guitar really well.  It's also the song I was attempting to play when I broke a guitar string today.  And so it goes.
