Maybe this isn’t Pearl Jam’s greatest song. But I think it’s their catchiest.
It may take some folks a while to appreciate Nelly Furtado’s voice on this song, it can come off a bit nasally. But she sings with a swagger (and dances the same in the video)
Love and her band Hole were no musical hanger-ons. They had some great songs.
Welcome to my favorite Christmas song.
Talk about putting your stamp on a Christmas song. You didn’t think you were going to get away from here without a Christmas song, did you?
“Wake Up Dolores” is definitely my favorite song by Los Lobos, and is from a fantastic 1992 album, Kiko.
The Dandy Warhols released Thirteen Tales from Urban Bohemia, and a classic rock song was born.
No, it’s not the David Bowie version.
I love that version as much as anyone. But there’s another artist that has a different take on the song, one that I think deserves attention as well.
I heard Shawn Colvin in the 1990s but I didn’t listen enough. She’s good.
I’m not a big fan of Paul McCartney and Wings. They were okay, but the falloff from the peak with the Beatles made listening to them feel somewhat hollow. They just never clicked with me. Except with this song.
