“Coyotes” by Jason Mraz (from We Sing. We Dance. We Steal Things., 2008)
I don’t know, when it comes to Mr. A-Z, the shine has worn off a little bit. I love We Sing. We Dance. We Steal Things., but everything since has landed a bit flat on my ears. That said, I still dig the heck out of this tune.
“Escape” by Journey (from Escape, 1981)
If I may make a recommendation: go and watch Don’t Stop Believin’: Everyman’s Journey. It documents Arnel Pineda’s first year with the band, and is positively fascinating. Also—to no one’s surprise—Neal Schon is kind of a dick.
“Try” by P!nk (from The Truth About Love, 2012)
I like this record a lot more than I did when I first listened to it. This song, in particular, is pretty stellar.
“I Was Wrong” by Social Distortion (from Greatest Hits, 2007)
Three chords and a prayer.
“Young Americans” by David Bowie (from Young Americans, 1975)
I have not listened to this record in far too long, as a matter of fact … I’m going to listen to it now.
What’s on your shuffle today?
