Chris and Jeff’s Music Trade Off 11/6/2020

Mary J. Blige - Family Affair

Chris starts with some Mary J! He's been doing a deep dive this week, revisiting her albums. This is a great song, nay, an amazing song!

Eagles of Death Metal - Family Affair

Chris out of the gate with the double! this song has been on reprat this week, obviously a cover of Mary J. It was so nice, we played it twice.

Childish Gambino - This is America

Jeff has been listening to him for a while now, just saw the video for the first time recently, and wow. Childish Gambino is a force of nature.

Fiona Apple - Across the Universe

Jeff's follow-up, a certified cover of an incredible Beatles song. This song always centers me and calms me. Chris got a wee bit defensive that Jeff pulled it. 🙂

John Lennon - Jealous Guy

Chris starts the next 2 pack with Lennon. We should all have a love like that, like John and Yoko. Fuck everything for love.

Elliot Smith - Just a Jealous Guy

Elliot Smith. Need I say more?

Fleetwood Mac - Landslide

Jeff's choice, this is his mom's music. Stevie's voice is just so perfect, and unique, and Stevie.

Smashing Pumpkins - Landslide

Jeff is fully aware that he played this last time, but it's a cover, and that's been the theme so far, so sue him.

Otis Redding - Try a Little Tenderness

Otis was only with us a short amount of time, but what an amazing artist, and a n everlasting impression.

Jay Z and Kanye West - Otis featuring Otis Redding

Chris continues the 2 pack. Watch the Throne, such an incredible album.

Anderson Paak - Tints, featuring Kendrick Lamar

Listening to Jay Z/Kanye Otis totally reminded Jeff of this.

Kendrick Lamar - The Recipe featuring Dr. Dre

For Chris, this is close to an island song.

Eminem - Untitled

Not quite finished yet! One of Jeff's favorites.

The Roots - In the Music featuring Malik B and Porn

Chris busting out some Roots. They get better and better every time I hear them - Jeff.

Ghost - Jigolo Har Megiddo

Jeff busts out some Ghost.

Velvet Revolver - She Builds Quick Machines

Chris with some VR. You can't go wrong with Scott Weiland and Slash.

Van Halen - Everybody Wants Some

This song gets Jeff fired up any time. Better off Dead stop motion was the shit.

Eagles of Death Metal - Oh Girl

Another Chris drop, a banger from EODM!

Sonic youth - Titanium Expose

Jeff can't get off the nostalgia train. Love the overall sound and distortion from this one.

Cat Stevens - Moon Shadow

Chris drops some wisdom - "Skip and Ad, Save a Flower" Cat Stevens brings us down to earth with a Moon Shadow

Lovin Spoonful - Daydream

When Jeff used to throw papers every morning with his Mom, this song came on with consistency, and was an indication that we were almost done. This is a touchstone to some great memories of his mom, and the hours we spent together, sometimes in conversation, sometimes in silence, just together, doing a job, and listening to music.

Grateful Dead - Dear Mr. Fantasy

Wonder who played this one.... This particular version features one of Chris' favorite pianists for the band.

The Commitments - Try a Little Tenderness

Jeff pulled out this one, and went for a 3X cover night!!!

Otis Redding - I've Got Dreams to Remember

Chris has been on a deep dive of Otis lately.

Queens of the Stone Age - Mexicola

This bass hits so fucking hard. Jeff is a sucker for this one.

Foo Fighters - Run

Chris brings us to a close with some Foo!

In closing...

27 songs overall tonight, pretty mellow, and sorry for no links to break music, the breaks were all brought to us by The Clash - San Dista!

As always, we hope you have the opportunity to have an East Bay Night with your friends every chance you get.

Chris and Jeff
