Nuggets 342 – Baby Baby

Strange title, long story.

I was sorting through my Itunes music collection the other day (yes, it was raining outside) when I noticed how many songs had the word “baby” in the title; there were about 600 tracks. Great I thought, lets make some playlists. I sorted them into more contemplative tunes, psych 70’s numbers, thrashier tunes and so on.

It has been interesting checking out tunes familiar and unknown, a deep dive into what I have saved over the years.

Here is the first playlist which contains mildly thrashy numbers. All fab of course. If I had to pick a favourite, it would be “Why Not Your Baby” by Gene Clark / Doug Dillard.

Happy New Year.

Nuggets 316 – Covers IX

Wanda Jackson

Reasons to love a cover;

  • It is a fresh version of a song that you already like;
  • It is a song by one of your favourite artists covering a song that you haven’t heard before.

Another mix of covers follows. You will notice a change in the music player. Problems, problems… Click away and you will figure out what to do.

I am particularly fond of the Juliana Hatfield cover of the Olivier Newton John song. She has turned it into a real banger.

The Bennie & The Jets cover is also fab.

Looking forward to seeing Teenage Fanclub when they play next year.
