Singles 8/3

It’s a good week when we can swat aside a thing by Twenty One Pilots they call “Jumpsuit” and Sheryl Crow + St. Vincent don’t sound as mismatched as I’d thought (and better than David Byrne + St. Vincent). This week I feel kinder toward Ciara’s fourteenth or whatever comeback, enough that I’ve stuck it in my mix beside “Ultimatum” and “I’m So Sick.”

  1. Whoa! I have the three Disclosure singles of SETTLE in my list. “When s Fire Starts to Burn” was not covered by you guys in the jukebox and that was a pity because that was a brillant promo single and better idea. Nice you like them again!

  2. Off topic. I am completing the 70s list at random. I absolutely have no room for another country-folk ditty for 1972 and I have to choose between Arlo Guthrie’s “The City of New Orleans” and Mitchell’s “You Turn Me On, I’m a Radio”. Help me…:))

  3. Thanks!! I was sure you’de choose that. The ambivalent “a little bit corny Radio” gets no love from critics, but at least I’m proud my list has “Coyote”, a song I won’t find in any other and who deserves way better by melting complicated chords (and frettless bass!) with popular tastes (in fact, it was the single off Hejira, my DID from her with Court and Spark a close second) Jazz-folk is one of the neglegted genres coming out of the 70s that’s in anybobody’s lists so far. Perhaps Weather Report was too brainy and meanders, but Mitchell’s was still “pop”. I yet have to purchase “Hissing”.
