Emma Ruth Rundle & Thou [00:25] "Ancestral Recall" May Our Chambers Be Full Sacred Bones SBA-007 2020 Two great heavy tastes that taste great together! De La Soul [04:20] "Me, Myself, and I" Me, Myself, And I Tommy Boy TB 926 B A 3-sided 12" single of the classic De La Soul jam. What? 3-sided, you ask? Indeed! Side Two has parallel tracks. In this infamous sample-strong song we can hear Ohio Players, Funkadelic, Edwin Birdsong, Doug E. Fresh, and Loose Ends. Johnny Cash [08:04] "25 Minutes to Go" Mean as Hell - Ballads from the True West Columbia CS 2446 1966 Gooo...ohhh...ohhh...ohhh... Another fun Shel Silverstein tune for Mr. Cash. Pink Floyd [11:16] "San Tropez" Meddle Harvest SMAS-832 1971 This jaunty tune has long been one of my favorite Floyd songs. Clan of Xymox [16:16] "Louise" Medusa 4AD CAD 613 1986 Mmmm... darkwave. Blonde Redhead [21:34] "For the Damaged" Melody of Certain Damaged Lemons Touch and Go TG216 2000 Evidently this Chopin-based song is of some signficance to Rick and Morty fans. Philharmonia Orchestra, conducted by Paul Kletzki [24:32] "Dance of the Clowns, Op. 61, No. 11" Mendelssohn: A Midsummer Night's Dream Angel Record 35146 1962(?) Quite the dance! Sir Douglas Quintet [26:09] "Mendocino" Mendocino Smash/Mercury SRS 67115 1966 It's entirely possible that you've never heard the title track to this album. If that's the case, enjoy! Gravy Train!!!! [30:16] "Hella Nervous" The "Menz" E.P. Cold Crush 003 2002 Hella. Definitely hella. Aidan Baker & Jakob Thiesen [32:30] "Dangers Will Breed" Mépris Interior Massacre I.M.02 2013 Two great tastes that taste great together! Ultra Vivid Scene [41:20] "Mercy Seat" Mercy Seat 4AD BAD 906 1989 Waaaaay back in the waaaay back, I would play this song over and over and over again. I was obsessed. Bing Crosby with the Andrews Sisters [47:50] "Mele Kalikimaka" Merry Christmas Decca DL 78128 1961 (original release: 1955) A snappy number from Bing and the gals that was originally recorded in 1950. Johnny Mathis [50:41] "Sleigh Ride" Merry Christmas Columbia CS 8021 1972 (original release 1958) A mighty smooth sleigh ride indeed. The Radio City Music Hall Symphony Orchestra & Chorus [53:39] "Carol of the Bells" Merry Christmas America from the Radio City Music Hall Continental CR 1009 1972 Now that is an ending.
