TBT SOTD: Davy’s On the Road Again

Manfred Mann’s Earth Band – Davy’s On the Road Again

Every music fan is familiar with their Bruce Springsteen re-imaginings, particularly the wonderfully recreated “Blinded by the Light.”  Then there are the classic rock hits like “Mighty Quinn” and Manfred Mann’s “Doo Wah Diddy.” They also had a slick 80’s radio hit with “Runner,” but, my favorite Manfred Mann’s Earth Band song was this live cut.

SOTD: World War Me

Break A Leg Kid – World War Me

Let’s kick off this week with a frenetic new track from Chicago’s World War Me. Paced by breakneck guitar riffs and full bore rhythms, this one is more punk than pop. The catchy music is juxtaposed by poignant, angst-filled lyrics. Bottom line: It’s a damn good debut from a band dripping with promise.

After a surprise show for fans in London, they revealed the album’s first single “Live Outside” and if it is any indication for what we are in store for, The Spark is going to be one hell of an album.

TBT SOTD: Dirty Old Town

The Pogues – Dirty Old Town

I just returned from a fantastic music filled vacation to Ireland, and figured I’d leverage that trip to dig into the vault for this week’s Throwback Thursday Song of the Week.  Nope, I’ve talked enough about U2, this one is from Celtic punk rockers, The Pogues. But, there’s nothing punk rock about this selection.
