Friday Playlist


This week's Playlist is all about the longing in various forms - longing to connect and dance with some that makes us smile, longing to shine where so often we feel a touch dull. Richard and Linda Thomposon start things off with the high hopes of "I Want To See The Bright Lights Tonight," followed the equally daydream rich "When I Paint My Masterpiece," Dylan and The Band's classic worked over nicely by Tim O'Brien and Del McCoury. Then, a couple quality bands from the "H" section of the alphabet, Hoots & Hellmouth and the Hackensaw Boys with "The Good I Know You Know" and "Stranger's Waltz," respectively. This is followed by nu-folk-innovators Fire On Fire's "Liberty Unknown," Elton John's shimmering cover of Lesley Duncan's cult favorite "Love Song" and finally Chris Thile's "Ready For Anything" from his superb solo album Deciever. May your weekend find all your hopes fulfilled, kids!
