Time Warp Tuesday: Meg’s Tracks for April 30, 2019
It's Tuesday, and that means it's time for your girl to share her seven favorite retro tracks this week. If you're lucky, I'll relive the past trauma associated with these songs, too--so call my therapist; let's do this.
The Figurehead/ The Cure
Super depressing Cure is my favorite Cure, so y'all know I listen to Pornography on repeat. When Robert sings "I will never be clean again," I feel it in my soul.
Take Me to the River/ Talking Heads
Is it weird that I have a crush on David Byrne?
Save it for Later/ Harvey Danger
I was listening to the OG version of this song the other day and suddenly remembered that one-hit-wonder extraordinaire Harvey Danger had released a cover of it in the late 90's. It was even on the soundtrack to the movie 200 Cigarettes. Fair warning: the movie suuuuuuuuuuuuucks.
Monkey Gone to Heaven/ The Pixies
True story: I was at a house party once and witnessed two dudes get into fist fight. The onus of their altercation? One dude said Dolittle was the greatest album ever made, and the other dude did not agree.
I Need My Girl/ The National
Can you guess my favorite pastime? Did you say "crying in the bathtub while listening to The National?" DING DING WINNER WINNER CHICKEN DINNER.
Under the Milky Way/ The Church
I have two moods: unbearably despondent and unreasonably ready to make out. This song works for both.
I'm on Fire/ Bruce Springsteen
I think this may be the sexiest song ever written (and not just because I have daddy issues). That like, half-howl thing the Boss does at the end? It gets me every time. If a man ever sang this to me, I would disintegrate on the spot.
