New Years Eve 2008

Bruce Springsteen: Brilliant Disguise (And a short talk about life...)
This is a beautiful little duet The Boss sings with his wife Patti Scialfa
It's taken from the VH1 series 'Storytellers'.

You know, I've heard some people mention that I must hate women. That's just not true. I loved my mom. And I love my daughter more than anything in the world. No the truth is I hate just about EVERYONE and EVERYTHING in this crappy little excuse of a world... But even the most steely-hearted of misanthropes such as myself can't help but be touched by how sweet it is when Patti walks on stage and touches Bruce's face. "C'mon Pat" Ah... Patti loves Bruce.

Malcolm Middleton: Devastation (MP3)
Josh Rouse: Sad Eyes (MP3)
Iain Archer: Everything I've Got (MP3)
The National: Slow Show (MP3)
Emiliana Torrini: A Least It Was
Johnny Cash: If You Could Read My Mind (MP3)
Band Of Horses: No One's Gonna Love You(MP3)
Ryan Adams: My Winding Wheel (MP3)
Stina Nordenstam: Winter Killing (MP3)

Neil Young: A Man Needs A Maid/Heart of Gold (Massey Hall 1971)
I love the way he changes the words in this early version.
Afraid... A man is afraid.

Honourable Mention:
Malcolm Middleton: Fuck It, I Love You (MP3)
Craig Armstrong: Let's Go Out Tonight (MP3)
Keane: Crystal Ball (MP3)

I just discovered that Iain Archer comes from my home town. I bought the album after listening to the song on this blog. The name rang a bell, then I checked out an EP I bought years ago by one of my old class mates (Colin McMurray) and discovered that Iain Archer gets a mention on there too. It really is a small world!
