TVD | Friday @ Random

From a wine-infused, pre-birthday ramble two weeks back on the blog, "Fast note about the Nick Gilder track that kicks off this 10...I have played this tune NONSTOP all year. I don't know what it is. There's something that just kills's dated, sure...but dammit, man...where's the band ripping this sound off? Straight up the center - no mathrock time changes - just eager and angst. It's simple really. But this is a lousy Mp3 conversion that I found on the net...I'll get to an official one next week...think of it as if coming through your AM radio. Together we'll work on the harmonies on the chorus part..." we're sharing...!" So, you've had two weeks...ready to sing the harmonies on the chorus all 70's like? | I'm hoping a few of you haven't made any plans yet for next weekend. Not to let the cat out of the bag prematurely, but we have some pretty cool ticket packages to give away next week. See ya then, huh?

TVD's Daily Wax | John Lennon & Yoko Ono "Double Fantasy"

I know, I know...was it a "return to form" or more of just a ...return? For me STILL, this LP is overshadowed by the events that came to pass shortly after its release. That is to say, the tracks soon became maudlin and then clich├ęd. And their origin was bathed in homespun, househusbandly sweetness when I indeed prefer my Lennon acerbic, acidic, and animated.

So, I toss it out to the readership...does this one belong here amidst the "return to form" theme? With an honest appraisal of the tracks for this post, I'm on the fence...and should I have included ANY of the Yoko tracks? Hmm.

John Lennon - (Just Like) Starting Over (Mp3)
John Lennon - Beautiful Boy (Darling Boy) (Mp3)
John Lennon - I'm Losing You (Mp3)
John Lennon - Woman (Mp3)
John Lennon - Watching The Wheels (Mp3)
