Cody Jams (July 25, 2005)

Ten random songs from my itunes.

1979 (Smashing Pumpkins) – The way he intertwines the drumbeat with the melody guitar, which speaks to the other guitar, is pure genius. Not necessarily the pumpkins greatest song, but definitely their prettiest.

Act a Fool (Master P) – Can’t listen to this song and not want to kick someone’s ass or at very least dunk on them. Master P is truly one of my idols - an entrepreneur, rap star, and wanna-be hoopster.

Always (Blink 182) – Cheese-dick alt-pop B.S., sure. But those are some damn catchy tunes.

Back to Life (Soul to Soul) – Their first album was full of all-time classic songs. This is one of them (they never did anything else that was really noteworthy).

Cruz (Leon parker) – Downloaded this song on accident when trying to purchase the same title by Cristina Aguilera (which is my favorite Aguilera song). Glad for the mistake because this is a great jazz tune.

Starry Eyed Surprise (Paul Oakenfold) - Sure it’s a poppy rip-off of Moby. But hey, it’s catchy, and I love it.

Cure Me (Statistics) – Don’t know how I found this song, but downloaded it at some point and it’s a keeper. Nice mellow jam.

99.9 F (Susan Vega) - It was tough to get over Luca – even as a 15 year old I found that song irritatingly poppy. But Susan Vega became a true rocker and 99.9 F is one of her greatest songs.

All that She Wants (Banghra Version) (Ace of Base) – I make no apologies for loving this Swedish band and the drumbeat in this remix is a big part of why.

Amie (Counting Crows) – Great band doing a great song.

While you're on Pretty Pumpkins tunes, "Tonight Tonight" has to rank up there somewhere I think

Starry Eyed Surprise is definitely a good one. Did you first hear it on the Diet Coke ads?

Go find The Faces "Ohh La La". It's the song played during the Nike ad for Tiger as a child at St. Andrews. Very good.

Also, Ellis Paul's "World Ain't Slowing Down" is a guaranteed mood improver.

Run DMC's "Peter Piper" is outstanding.

Lady's Love Cool James has been making heads bounce for decades, which in hip hop is an eternity. Download LL Cool J's "I'm Bad" for some old school flavor.

If you haven't already, check out Bloc Party. They freakin' rule. And right up your alley, I think.
