Chris and Jeff’s Music Trade Off 9/19/2020

Seth Avett and Jessica Lea Mayfield - Twilight

The first song of the night was Twilight by Elliot Smith, done by Seth Avett and Jessica Lea Mayfield. This song has been top of the playlist for the last week or so for both of us!

Seth Avett and Jessica Lea Mayfield - Pitseleh

From the same album, another Elliot Smith cover that's haunting and amazing.

Dua Lipa - Don't Start Now

Chris breaks from Elliot Smith with some Dua Lipa!

Dua Lipa - Levitating, Blessed Madonna Remix

Dua Lipa, Madonna, and Missy Elliot? What else do you need!!

Big Sean - Harder Than My Demons

Detroit 2 is the newest album from Big Sean. It's amazing, and the stories from people like Dave Chappelle are inspiring as well!

Roots - Guns are Drawn

What can I say, one of the best and hardest working groups out there, The Roots defy expectations, and never cease to amaze.

Big Grams - Run for your Life

So we shut the fuck up sometimes and listen to me...

Billy Joel - Big Shot

First Break song of the night, gotta get some more beer.

Flyleaf - Something I can Never Have (Cover)

Returning from Break, Jeff loves this cover, but the original is the best.

Re Tros - Red Rum Aviv

Thank you to Joshua Homme and The Alligator Hour. I found these guys. They are from China, and they Rock!

Ben Harper and Charlie Musselwhite - No Mercy in this Land

Doesn't get much better than Ben with Charlie.

Them Crooked Vultures - Warsaw or The First Breath you Take After you Give Up

It's all medals and trophies
Trophies and medals
All before the race has been run

Ry Cooder - Feeling Bad Blues

Play it with gusto Karate Kid.

Led Zeppelin - No Quarter

Just put it on repeat

James Taylor - Fire and Rain

I always know that I'll see you again.

Billy Joel - The Downeaster "Alexa"

Another break, another classic from Billy Joel!

Stone Temple Pilots - Lady Picture Show

STP is a must for any evening.

Led Zeppelin - Rain Song

Perfect Mood Song

Billy Joel - Goodnight Saigon

One of Jeff's favorites, takes him back to a crazy cool time in his life.

Beck - Paper Tiger

Is Sea Change the best Beck album ever? We think it might be.

Tears for Fears - Everybody Wants to Rule The World

It's 80's night!! I definitely don't ever want to go to a room where the light will not find me.

Down Like Silver - Broken Coastline

Heard this for the first time on the show Money Heist, and fell in love with it.

In closing...

26 songs overall, and what a great night! Started at about 9pm, finished at 4am. Crazy night, and definitely a great memory. I think I will sign off with a song that defines our kick ass evenings together.

From Chris and Jeff, we hope you have the opportunity to have an East Bay Night with your friends every chance you get.
