Bitch – Stephen Lynch

© 2013 petephillips. All rights reserved.

Stephen Lynch still reminds me of the old days when Opie & Anthony was broadcast in Philly. I listened every day and laughed along with their juvenile and over-confident antics. When I had SiriusXM radio with my latest car, I … Continue reading

A Rough Mix – Steinski

© 2013 petephillips. All rights reserved.

Is it wrong to choose a 60-minute song for this blog? I couldn’t pick one Steinski selection from this mix. I remember discovering it while researching the mash-up genre (which fell apart in some ways when it mutated into pop … Continue reading

Bad Night – from Louie

If I planned this blog effectively, I’d probably save this song for the final pages, but since I haven’t done that yet, why start now? I loved Louis CK since I saw him on some late night stand up show … Continue reading

Shake a Fist – Hot Chip

I didn’t get into Hot Chip right away. Mostly, I don’t think I heard them. I knew they were out there, but didn’t really bother. Eventually I did hear them– this song may have been my first– and enjoyed them. … Continue reading

I don’t really like this song. It was severely overplayed and pretty bland in the first place. I would change the station when it came on, or if it stayed on randomly should heys and hos out of sync. I … Continue reading

My college roommate would only dance to this song. Greg was a good roommate. I once complained about him through the wall in the room next door and he heard me. I had no right when I think about it. … Continue reading

You and I – Murs

It seems that too many songs remind me of guilt. This one reminds me of the station manager when I started college radio. Phil was a pale white red-headed guy who might be the last person you’d expect to be … Continue reading

Stray Cat Strut – Stray Cats

© 2013 petephillips. All rights reserved.

Without understanding a single bit of the symbolism or innuendo, this song made me want to be like the dudes in The Stray Cats. It’s certainly why I unquestioningly accepted Brian Setzer’s later swing days. No, it wasn’t that I … Continue reading

Creator – Santogold

Santi White. My dear. At first, I was like “Meh.” Later I heard how far she came and couldn’t deny that she was tapping into interesting melting pot genre stuff. This was my go-to song when I played her on … Continue reading
