Once again, it’s “drop the needle” time on some songs that have made the cut to this week’s “Single Play.” Some weeks, it’s feast and some weeks it’s a famine in terms of music I’m connecting with. This week, it’s more of a feast, so off we go to see what’s being served at the buffet. The Stone Foxes, “Everybody Knows.” Their new album is out on 2/12/13, but this single has been floating around since last year. If you hear the Black Keys in their style, you’re not alone.

Up first, the new kid on the block… It boggles the mind that 27 years have washed by since Aimee Mann first stood up from her MTV theater seats to shout “He said shut up! He said shut up! Oh why can’t you keep it down?” Clearly you can’t keep a good girl down. As her solo career enters its 20th year, Mann is back with her eighth studio album, Charmer. Clearly she knew THIS one is extra special. She released it to the media in June and I’ve had it on steady rotation all summer long. Now I’ll fully admit, I might be a bit biased. When I saw ‘Til Tuesday in concert in 1986 (outside Tampa, FL), I had a broken foot. Mann saw me struggling to keep from falling over and moved her mic stand forward so I could hang onto something.
