Im Boycotting Winter

Blame the lack of updates on the snow that is currently covering Pittsburgh. I know I am.

Art Of Noise

Paranoimia ’89 (Dance Mix)
Dragnet ’89
That’s not a typo, the name of the song is ‘Paranoimia.’ It’s a remix of ‘Paranoia,’ minus the Max Headroom. The Dragnet theme is silly but fun in a retarded kind of way.

Public Image Ltd.
Seattle (12” Mix)
Body (12” Mix)
These are two of PiL’s most easy-to-listen songs. So if you’ve hated all the other post Sex Pistols John Lydon material I’ve put up on this site check these out. These were taken off of the 12” single for ‘Seattle.’

Eddie Vedder
It might come as a surprise to some of you, but I am an obsessive fan of all things Pearl Jam. I’ve seen them live half-a-dozen times, have an unhealthy collection of concert memorabilia and also have more CDs, LPs and 45s then I wish to count. This song by Eddie is off of the soundtrack to A Brokedown Melody, which is a groovy littler surfer doc.

They Might Be Giants
One More Parade
I forgot where I found this one. It’s off of an album called Rubaiyat, which was a two-CD collection compiled for Elektra’s 40th Anniversary but I don’t have that. It featured a bunch of Elektra artists covering songs by other Elektra artists – self-congragulatory label masturbation at its best. This is a cover of a Phil Ochs anti-war song and is sadly just as relevant today as it was when he first recorded it.

The Pixies
Born In Chicago
Another track off the Elektra collection. This one is a cover of a very old blues song I believe.

    Thanks for the Vedder track. Been looking all over for that one… Can’t wait to finally here it!

    p.s. If you’re looking for a super-rare PJ song, have you heard I’m Still Here
