more music please (22 may 2019) by rfy.jpg

Howdy Folks, this is Richard F. Yates playing the “Selector,” once again, to bring YOU some classic and new, and not-so classic and not-so-new, tunes! I’m once again straddling many fences here, playing everything from disco to punk, and one song where a punk band covers a disco song! (Did you know poster children did a cover of “I Feel Love?”)

Speaking of covers, there are a TON in this playlist. I love when a band gives a nod to their influences and takes a crack at putting their own signature feel onto a classic tune. In this playlist, there are no fewer than FOURTEEN covers! (Uffie covers Siouxsie and The Banshees; as does Bertie Blackman; Sunday Girl covers Laura Branigan; Knock Out covers Jimmy Cliff; The Circle Jerks cover Jackie DeShannon; Jimmy Somerville covers George Gershwin; Poster Children cover Donna Summer; The Claypool Lennon Delirium cover Pink Floyd; Alice Cooper covers Love; Replicants cover Syd Barrett; Sweaty Nipples cover Devo; Lawnmower Deth covers Jimi Hendrix; Dread Zeppelin covers Led Zeppelin (of course); Wailing Souls cover Donovan; and “Weird Al” does a parody of Stevie Nicks. And, perhaps surprisingly to some, Slade does the song, “Cum On Feel the Noize,” which ISN’T a cover when they perform it, but was, in fact, THEIR song, although it was redone and made much more famous in the 80’s by head-banging metal titans, Quiet Riot!

So is there a THEME to this mix? Maybe…. (Let me think of one…)


This is headphone music (especially the electronic cuts), but it would work equally well in a big, ol’ boombox, if you’ve still got one of those, which would create a mood perfect for a backyard bar-b-que full of drunken weirdos who enjoy laughing and dancing and hearing classics from their childhoods re-imagined in strange and sinister ways---plus a bunch of other songs that most folks probably don’t know…yet… It’s all good stuff though, if you want your music to be strange and challenging and interesting and a tiny bit unsettling and fun. (Maybe not everyone is going to care for The Tear Garden or Capital Punishment, but for those who are inclined towards the truly freaky stuff…You are welcome!)

I know that most of these playlists have been about 100 songs long, over the last few months, but I was feeling more…compact…today. I decided on 69 songs---a nice round number---23 times 3. Right? So…without further ado or adon’t, let’s get to the tunes!
