My Birthday Music

I completed another year above ground on Saturday. While the good wishes were flowing in on Facebook, I decided to give back by posting some YouTube videos of tunes that resonated with me on that particular day. Herewith, those same videos, in a concise playlist, for your Monday listening enjoyement.

  1. Muddy Waters “Mannish Boy” Obvious, sure. But birthdays are obvious.
  2. David Bowie “Speed of Life” Good instrumental from his post-glam artiste period. The title is suggestive as one ages.
  3. Iggy Pop “The Passenger” I have a hard time getting tired of this one. Both existential and powerful.
  4. Reverend Horton Heat “The Devil’s Chasin’ Me” It’s never a wrong time for pyschobilly, and even tongue-in-cheek religion is better than none at all, in my opinion.
  5. The Sword “Tres Brujas” Life is a journey, and sometime you need the wise old crone to show you the way.
  6. The Ramones “Beat on the Brat” As a parent, you shouldn’t actually do this, but as a parent, you often want to.
  7. Dee-Lite “Groove is in the Heart” Because nostalgia for a video drenched in nostalgia (there was nothing nostalgic about the actual music, which was a club favorite back in the day) is a good reminder about how you can’t hold on to the past.
  8. DJ Kool “Let Me Clear My Throat” Nothing deep here. This is just fun.
  9. Plastic Bertrand “Ca Plane Pour Moi” No matter how many Scorcese movies and Johnny Walker ads use this, I don’t tire of it. My demi-francais has the title meaning “This Life For Me.” I could be wrong, but it’s a good sentiment.
  10. The Rolling Stones “Time is On My Side” I ain’t dead yet, you bushwacker.
