“Come Rain or Come Shine” by Don Henley (from The Unplugged Collection, Volume 1, 1994)
Pardon my French: what a giant steaming pile of horse shit. If I recall correctly, I purchased this collection for McCartney’s unplugged take on “We Can Work it Out,” and Stevie Ray Vaughn’s “Pride and Joy.” The rest is a mish-mash of (some of) the biggest names to grace the MTV program, missing some of the best performances to come from the show.
“i n i” by Amel Larrieux (from Infinite Possibilities, 2000)
I adore Amel’s voice. She is likely the most underappreciated vocalist of our time.
“Disappearing” by Peter Murphy (from Cascade, 1995)
Meth is a hell of a drug.
“Grey Street” by Dave Matthews Band (from 2010-10-14: DMB Live Trax, Volume 27: Luna Park, Buenos Aires, Argentina (disc 1), 2013)
Why do I own so damnned many DMB records? The answer is easy: occastionally there are performances that exceed the recorded versions of well-worn tunes.
“Why Can’t I Be You?” by The Cure (from Kiss Me Kiss Me Kiss Me, 1987)
My toddler loves The Cure. I can’t explain it, but whenever they shuffle up he starts dancing.
What’s on your shuffle today?
