To say that many songs have been written about the night would be an understatement, and we prove it with our latest long-player today. It kind of…kept going…and going. Until I got tired, that is.
Here’s your Friday musical shenanigans:
11:00 a.m. Here Comes The Night: Various Artists NEW!
This was one I couldn’t get out of my head. Songs with references to the night either in the titles or the lyrics. It was fun, but exhausting because it never wanted to end, and I’m sure I’ve missed some. But hey, that’s the way it goes.
You’ll hear B.B. King, Gregg Allman, John Mayall, Creedence Clearwater Revival, The Rolling Stones, Linda Ronstadt, Maria Muldaur, Carly Simon, Dr. John, Joe Walsh, The Beatles, Van Morrison, Them, Bruce Springsteen, The Eagles, John Cougar Mellencamp, Joni Mitchell, Neil Young, Bob Dylan, Rod Stewart, The Traveling Wilburys and many, many more.
We’ll have the set list up under the Playlist tab before air time! Just scroll to the bottom.
7:00 p.m. Steve Winwood & Eric Clapton Live From Madison Square Garden, February 25-28, 2008
Here we have a great selection of songs from two musical legends recorded over three performances at Madison Square Garden in 2008. Unlike some, however, I personally consider Winwood the bigger talent here, but that’s me. He’s our guy here in The Mermaid Lounge.
Great day to listen in, particulary if you think that the night time is the right time. We are totally free; we ask no personal information; we seek no subscriptions; and we accept no advertising. It’s all about the music.
