Top Ten Tuesday: The Weeknd "Can't Feel My Face", "The Hills"

Two songs by The Weeknd are in the Top Ten this week. The first, "Can't Feel My Face" has been here for a couple of weeks now, but the second (and actually, I believe the older song), "The Hills" is just entering with the most recent chart. Here they both are!




In fact, I'm sure that "The Hills" is older. It has an actual video, but "Can't Feel My Face" doesn't, yet!

New Countdown: One Take Tiger


Muse
This recording happened in one sitting. In fact, I'm still experiencing that sitting. I haven't stood since I sat down to do this recording. What a weird thought.

Anyways. I think we have another great show on our hands. I hope you enjoy it. Hopefully while simultaneously sucking the marrow from this fast-fading summer!

Music Video: Doomtree "Generator"

After hinting at it last night with a series of mysterious Instagram posts, Doomtree released a new music video today. It's for "Generator," one of my favorite songs on All Hands. Watch it below.

Also, they are apparently releasing new tour dates on Monday, so watch doomtree.net/events to find out when they'll be coming to a town near you.

Throwback Thursday: 1968



1. Bookends Theme
2. Save the Life of My Child
3. America
4. Overs
5. Voices of Old People
6. Old Friends


7. Bookends Theme
8. Fakin' It
9. Punky's Dilemma
10. Mrs. Robinson
11. Hazy Shade of Winter
12. At the Zoo

The first half is a concept album about a journey from childhood to old age. And the second half is stuff that wasn't on the Graduate soundtrack. A pretty fantastic album.

The video is from SNL in 1977, 9 years after the album came out and 7 or so years after S&G broke up. It makes the song super poignant.

Top Ten Tuesday: OMI "Cheerleader"

This song came to the Top Ten recently and I thought (and actually, may have commented) "Well, I already did this song for that UK Edition a couple of weeks/months ago" but now this song is at #1 (the 5th #1 of the year so far) and I'm realizing that it was the remix version that was on the UK chart. And this is the original version. And they're both worth hearing! So here you go!
