I know spaced99 did this last weekend and I thought we'd maybe do this as a weekly thing, potentially taking turns, but I didn't see a post when going back through the Odeck earlier. So I figured I'd make it myself.
We all listen to tunes throughout the day, I know I definitely do. I work better with music going, plus it helps me drown out my coworkers who can grate on my nerves quick, fast and in a hurry at work. Thank goodness for my Xmas gift to myself, JayBird BlueBuds X headphones. Pricey, but oh so worth it. Bluetooth and noise isolating and in-ear? Heck yes! Last a full work day on a charge? Fuck and yes!
Anyway, here's a few gems some of you might or might not have heard before. My musical taste are all over the place, but you can't go wrong with anything that's bluesy.
That's Ten Years After with "I'm Going Home". Almost twelve minutes of pure auditory bliss. Filmed live at Woodstock, it's a seriously amazing song. Alvin Lee is a fucking badass guitarist and that guitar he is playing is seriously a thing of beauty.
That is one you pretty much have to know if you've ever listened to rock music at any point in your life. Assuming though that you've lived under a rock and don't know who or what that is, it's Led Zeppelin with "When The Levee Breaks". It's got one of the most sampled drum tracks in the history of music, because no one, living or dead, ever beat on the drums the way John Bonham did. The crescendo part of the song is simply mind blowing the way things just kinda spin around and mix with Robert Plant's voice. And Jimmy Page's guitar playing, well, it's Jimmy.
That's another Zeppelin classic, "Hey Hey What Can I do?" It's honestly one of my favorite Zeppelin songs. I always fall for a type of girl and a friend of mine says when she hears that song it reminds her of me and my loves. I can't say I disagree. But, "hey hey what can I do?" ; )
That ladies and gentlemen is a song with a beat you've likely heard before. Bo Diddley is the man who invented it and that's the song that kicked off that Bo Diddley unique sound. It can be emulated but never sound as sweet as the original.
And that's it for your jukebox offerings from me for the day. Hope you enjoyed all of those. Got anything sweet you think everyone should check out? Well, share it!
