probably the hottest track on “More Shine”
“Ashamed of Myself,” Kelley Polar
Pitchfork Media review made me aware of it; beats out “Here in the Night” by a nose
“Bourgie Bourgie,” Gladys Knight & the Pips
didn’t know it started life as an Ashford & Simpson instrumental till J.Knox radioblogged it
“Clark Gable,” the Postal Service
plaintive like a motherfucker
“(Don’t) Give Hate a Chance,” Jamiroquai
“Every Generation,” Ronnie Laws
used to play on WHUR back home; it’s nice to see I didn’t hallucinate it (update: part of J.Knox’s latest radioblog, of course)
“Wichita Lineman,” the Meters
blogged it back in July; slowdanced to it at the bar last night
First co-worker: Whew, I’m going home. See you all tomorrow! …
Second co-worker: Buona sera!
First co-worker: … I don’t know what that means.
Second co-worker: It means “Good evening.”
First co-worker: I knew a “buona” had to be good.
Me: has aneurysm at desk
First co-worker: What’s so funny?
