The Playlist: November 2012 Archives
Tuesday November 20, 2012
It's all about making a good first impression with our newest playlist: great first songs on great albums.
- To kick things off, a Canadian classic: The Guess Who's "American Woman" from the album of the same name
- We stay in Winnipeg for track two, with the more contemporary Weakerthans. The opening song on their album Reunion Tour is "Civil Twilight."
- Listener Henry Braun adds another layer, going with track one, side one on Led Zeppelin I: "Good Times, Bad Times."
- After three solid rock tracks, we turn to Canadian chanteuse Jill Barber to bring things down a bit. Joyce Godfrey of McBride suggests "Mischievous Moon", the opening track on the album of the same name.
- Another contemporary female vocalists via listener Laura Leelie: Adele's "Rolling in the Deep", track one on 21.
- Back to the CanRock with track six of our track ones: The Tragically Hip and "Blow at High Dough."
- Phil Saunders suggests a song he used to cover with his band: "I Will Follow" from U2.
- Emily Fisher has a local group with a great opening tune: Vanderhoof's Rosewood's Diary and the song "Hey Shame" from their latest, Please Take Courage.
- Here's a pretty obvious one: "Life Is A Highway", the first track on Tom Cochrane's Mad, Mad, Mad, Mad World.
- And another Canadian classic: Our Lady Peace's opener "Superman's Dead."
- And the Barenaked Ladies' "One Week."
- Moira Green from Dawson Creek suggested we check out the band 7horse and their song "Meth Lab Zoso Sticker."
- Neil Young was unhappy with the sound of his first album, so for his second he assembled the band Crazy Horse for a liver, rockier feel. The first track: "Cinnamon Girl."
- And we end with the first track of Montreal's Stars ..Set Yourself On Fire: "Your Ex-Lover is Dead."
