Random Cody Jams (September 8, 2005)

Been a while...how about some tunes for yours and my new iPod Nanos? You did order one already didn't you? I ordered a black one inscribed with -- what else -- "Flip it! They can't stop the revolution!"

Time of the Season (The Ben Taylor Band) -- Great cover, funky beat, nice tone to Ben's voice. Lots of "feeling" to this updated version of the classic.

Tomorrow (Silverchair) -- I remember when this song came out when I was at UNM. Total Pearl Jam rip off sound, but these guys were 16 at the time as I recall. And man, it's got a good riff to it. Love these lyrics:
"There’s no bathroom, and there is no sink,
The water out of the tap is very, hard to drink,"
That just cracks me up to this day.

The Street Beater, Theme from Sanford and Son (Shane Theriot) -- Another great cover of a great Quincy Jones jam. Love it when they throw Redd Foxx's "Elizabeth, I'm coming to join ya'" in the mix.

Acadian Driftwood (The Band) -- Cheesy flutes, but such a great jam band, I've bought a lot of their tunes.

New Slang (The Shins) -- Broke out last year, and I won't claim to have known of this New Mexican-rooted band until they did break out. Great song though. Reminds me of great hippy music from the 1960s.

That Much Further West (Lucero) -- Don't know anything about this band. But this is a great song that I have no idea how I found.

Signs (Charlie Wilson, Justin Timberlake, Snoop Doggie Dogg) -- An orthodox Jewish friend of mine told me I had to download this song. He was right. I point out my friend's belief system, not his race as the reason of irony, by the way. Big difference.

One Love (Nas) -- I don't really like this song, but it came up on my random shuffle as I'm writing this. All well.

Hey Bulldog (Toad the Wet Sprocket) -- Saw the former lead singer of this band open up from some other dude I went to watch. But after staring an hour late and then another opening act came on I bailed. Horrible as an solo act, Toad the Wet Sprocket was a decent enough band.

Toxicity (System of a Down) -- Great band, complex jams. I've really grown to like these guys.

Just out of curiosity, if you were allowed to listen to only ONE more song/ tune/ symphony and it would be your last..(hypothetically speaking of course) what would you choose to listen to?
