Monk’s Time Warp Tuesday Playlist
Last week, Meg Summers shared a few of her favorite Time Warp Tuesday favorites and I thought I'd be a copycat and do the same this week!
She and I share a love for the nostalgia of Time Warp Tuesday having both she and I come from a college radio beginning in the golden age of alternative! Okay, so maybe I was there a little before her but age is just a number, right?
I got started in radio in 1990 and for a music loving kid just 16 years old, I was in heaven! We had an entire wall of vinyl and the authority to play whatever we wanted. Here are a few of those songs I like to throwback to every now and again. The ones that make me feel good and remember those days.
R.E.M. - Radio Free Europe
There's something about R.E.M. that has just always resonated with me. Their music sets me at ease. It takes me to a comfortable place, especially the early stuff like Radio Free Europe.
The Smithereens - A Girl Like You
I will admit to not ever being a HUGE Smithereens fan but I could listen to this song on repeat all day! It's got that guitar hook that pulls you in and once you've got the chorus memorized, you're there to stay.
The Church - Under the Milky Way
This song is literally one of the reasons hundreds of bands exist right now.
Concrete Blonde - Joey
I don't guess I have a whole lot to say about this track but if you have never heard it, you have not completed a single course in Alternative 101.
Fugazi - Waiting Room
C'mon, I had to throw a punk track in here. Fugazi rose from the ashes of Minor Threat, one of the greatest hardcore bands ever. They set the pace in a lot of ways for bands doing things DIY and never giving in to corporate pressure and money.
