Songs Renee & I Love
1. Other Lives/Weather Other Lives are a splendid group from Stillwater, Oklahoma. This is the "indie" rock song I wanted to be played as we walked in to the reception hall, even if I knew it was absolutely not a possibility.
3. The Magic Numbers/Morning's Eleven Just a boo-ti-ful magical creation. Unfortunately, the band has not been nearly as good since this first track off their first album. Sometimes you only have one good record in you.
4. Beulah/A Good Man is Easy to Kill Beulah was one of the crucial bands for Renee and I in the infancy of our relationship. And, yeah, we went and saw Beulah in the City. I got pulled up on stage to sing and shake a tambourine for the encore. I tried to get Renee to join me, but she was having none of that.
5. Beulah/Gene Autry "When I get to California/Gonna write my name in the sand"
7. The Rolling Stones/Monkey Man Maybe the greatest, and certainly weirdest introductions for a monster classic rock song ever.
8. The Rolling Stones/Bitch If I were a baseball player, this would be my walk-up to bat song.
9. Brenton Wood/Gimme Little Sign Mr Wood is criminally underappreciated; I discovered this stellar track from The Last Days of Disco soundtrack.
10. The Meters/Handclapping Song This is from one of the greatest cds I have ever bought. I read about it in Mojo Magazine. And every single song on that cd has been in the superb NOLA HBO series, Treme.
11. Floyd Cramer/On the Rebound The brill poening credits track to the exquisite, lovely, perfect little An Education film.
13. Stevie Wonder/Signed, Sealed, Delivered
14. Booker T and the MGs/Green Onions The greatest rock/soul instrumental of all-time.
15. Rufus Thomas/The Breakdown I wanted to say, "Ain't I'm clean," at the beginning of my Toast at the reception, but I forgot.
16. The Beatles/The Word Uh, Paul's little bass fills on this song are so tasteful, classy, and full of style as to make me glad to be alive.
17. The Staple Singers/Oh La De Da
19. A Taste of Honey/Boogie Oogie Oogie This was the number one hit in the US when Renee was born.
20. T Rex/Jeepster Renee looooves this song.
21. Brenton wood/Oogum Boogum More fantasticness from Brenton Wood, also from the superb Last Days of Disco soundtrack.
I love you all,
