  1. Billboard is doing a retrospective of their Alternative Songs chart, which is 30 years old. This story is about "Cuts You Up" by Peter Murphy, which quotes our interview. Murphy is a rather nebulous interview, but he gave us a rather enlightening answer when we asked about that song. https://www.billboard.com/articles/columns/rock/8479703/peter-murphy-cuts-you-up-alternative-songs

    Chasing the name of a song and artist.

    Maybe this one? https://www.songfacts.com/facts/bic-runga/blue-blue-heart
  3. The Kinks are becoming a popular choice for poignant moments, even here in America. Heard "Waterloo Sunset" in a big weepy scene somewhere recently.
  4. Maybe not perfect for this occasion, but "Joey" by Concrete Blonde is a pretty vivid description of being in love with an alcoholic.

    Song/Video of the day

    Battle rapping is a media cliché perpetuated by people who have likely never seen one in real life. Unless Eminem is involved, it's rather contrived. Snickers is particularly uninspired in this commercial. What a waste of Elton John.

    Down to Earth Cool Chick

    Don't see girls that are gearheads like this very often. Ed Sheeran would approve.

    Suicide Songs

    Seems young people have levels of anxiety and depression that exceed those of previous generations. One thing about these suicide songs is that they often come with information on how to get help. The Logic song 1-800-273-8255 is the best example. That's the number for the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline, which has gotten a huge increase in call volume. We reached out to them about the impact of the song; they explained that whenever Logic performs it, they get a spike. They coordinate to make sure additional staff is on hand.

    "Only U"

    We'll get on it. Would be a good one to have in the database.

    Dilbert

    The cartoon completely reworked the image I had of Dilbert's movement and voice.

    Random Music Thoughts V

    As the answer to today's Tuesday Trivia, here's a Got Milk? triptych.
  12. This trailer was recently posted for an upcoming film called Joni Mitchell - Both Sides Now: Live At The Isle Of Wight Festival 1970. In these days, you could walk on stage, play some congas and get away with it for a while, which is what one guy did during Mitchell's set. When she told him to leave, he grabbed the mic and did a rant about the consumerist nature of the festival. Mitchell held her ground and let the audience know what she thought.

    Red Rubber Ball

    The heat wave is here now. This fits the bill for the sweltering soundtrack.

    Song/Video of the day

    You surely remember his "Hello" video, but check out Lionel's "Running With The Night," where he crashes a white wedding.

    Bluegrass "Turn! Turn! Turn!"

    The video is a little on the nose, but this is a great rendition.
