Friday Playlist


There's something to be said for geographical distinction and this assortment is very much a product of English upbringing. We begin by piling into a London cab with the Arctic Monkeys followed by a couple of the primate ancestors, The Jam's "That's Entertainment" and The Housemartins' "Get Up Off Our Knees." Next, we have some quality city living with Madness' "On The Town" (taken from their ace new album, The Liberty of Norton Folgate), the extended version of The Specials' enduring "Ghost Town" and The Cribs' "City of Bugs," from their newly released Ignore The Ignorant, which features new guitarist Johnny Marr, who delivered one of the all-time most memorable guitar riffs with the next selection, The Smiths' "How Soon Is Now?" This is followed by Muse's "Glorious" and "Beautiful Summer," a standout from last year's new Primal Scream release. And we logically conclude with The Clash's "London Calling." Even if you're stuck on your couch this weekend at least you can travel to jolly olde England with your ears!

And check out last week's wistful Playlist with Todd Snider, Drug Rug, Caetano Veloso and more!
