This week I locked myself out of my house, so you could say things are going pretty well! Here’s what some are saying on twitter: The good singing gum playlist… made my week. Thanks, listeners!
The late, great Nate Dogg begins this week’s addition to the mix with She’s Strange, then The Wake with the prescient (for 1985) Of the Matter – Version. From Solange’s underrated Saint Heron compilation (2013) I included Cassie’s smooth Indo. Then, old-school (I’m talkin 60s) Philadelphia singers The Orlons follow with the Muskrat Ramble. To reflect how I feel this week I included Meat Puppets’ instrumental I’m a Mindless Idiot. Next, Soft Location mine Diamonds and Gems. 21 Savage follows with his most sentimental love song, Special. Another reggae cover song (there’s a lot of great ones!) is included in Delroy Wilson’s take on Marvin Gaye’s Inner City Blues. The, the fiery Toni Braxton debates whether or not to do it on Maybe. Closing out this week’s mix is Deptford Goth with the ballad Bloody Lip.
As always, check out these songs on Spotify.
