The BobChart – Week 3

The Bobcast Bob May 6th 2013 CroppedThe BobChart is made up of tunes I think you would like or songs I feel are worth listening to. Most will be current, some will be lost gems, others may be older songs you may have missed, and some will just be live tracks that bring it. At any rate…It’s the BobChart. There are no fixed positions in the chart, so I am not listing the songs in any particular order. These are PERSONAL favourites and what has my ear and attention this week. Popular music may come and go, but Great music is timeless. Some songs and performances never die or fade away….

Some jazz reimagining of some great pop songs, some guitar laden rock, a bit of Willie and a 17 year old kid who may be on the right path. 94.9 The Rock’s PD Doug Elliott joins us with his pick of the week, and an R&B classic with a name that will sound familiar, but not the song. Lots of Canadian greatness and a smattering of artists from other places. So much music out there…we are blessed.

Karen Souza – Bette Davis Eyes

Bring me a pitcher of Gin martinis, a pack of Camels, and a swingin’ dame…wait…make that TWO swingin’ dames.

Melting Pot – (You Got Me) Rollin’ & Tumblin’

When current local music is this good, the past doesn’t seem like such a good place to live

July Talk  – Guns + Ammunition

Great music breeds in Toronto like rattlesnakes in the Sierra Nevada foothills.

July Talk – Paper Girl

Monster Truck – Sweet Mountain River

The Truck is also Canuck

Secret Broadcast – Killer In The Kitchen

The Secret is in the Snow…Music falls from the sky in T.O

Neomythics – Preppers

I cannot figure out how to pronounce their name. I will dance instead.

Kamakazi – Until The World Ends

Kingston, Ontario Mariachi banditos …who knew?

Bernhoft – Come Around

I don’t know…nerdy guy underwater with a microphone. Just something about the voice and the easy going tune.

Willie Nelson – The Wall

If you are this good when you’re in your 80s I will buy you a pony….

Dylan Gardner- Let’s Get Started

He’s 17 years old. Shut up. I hear no Usher influence in this track. No monkey, no nonsense. no beats. Yay.

One more from Karen Souza….

Karen Souza – Get Lucky

With all the artifice stripped away, Ms. Souza reveals the song hidden in the Daft Punk release.

This song contains no hedgerows or plynths….

O’Jays – Stairway to Heaven

The only song by this name in my collection…and you can win bar bets with this one.

…and finally

94.9 The Rock Doug Elliott’s Pick of the Week

Against Me – Black Me Out

More rock in the free world….
