Song Additions for October, 2009

For a few months, the periodic post about new song additions were my favorites. Life has become complicated recently, and I’ve been unable to research much new music. This will be a pretty simple post this month, with a few good video finds from friends.

Kathy T. in Boston likes “Brompton Oratory” by Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds. Key of C, with a strange chord turnaround in the fourth measure (G#, Gm, F). “Brompton Oratory” add to the wish list:

Ryan B. in Palm Springs sends along a lovely version of “I Can’t Go For That (No Can Do)”, by Daryl Hall and the band Chromeo. The song starts about four minutes into the video:

I Can’t Go For That, Hall & Oates ✭✭✭

(EDIT) Oh, and I almost forgot. I called the same Ryan B. on Halloween. He was hanging around the Coachella Music Festival, waiting for the second set of the Phish concert that evening. Rumor was Sharon Jones of Da-Kings fame would be joining the band for a complete rendition of the Rolling Stones’ Exile On Main Street. Rumor true…here’s Loving Cup:

Loving Cup, Rolling Stones

There’s a nice series of performance shows called “The Artists Den”. A recent episode features the great Aimee Mann. The entire hour-long show is mesmerizing. One song is available for Internet viewing:

Aimee Mann Plays “31 (Today)”

I added three songs by trombonist Steve Turee and six songs by saxophonist Stanley Turrentine. Overall, it’s not a very strong month for additions, and not all choices will make the fnal cut. Here’s the list:
