So rather than mix more of this day into the mix, I thought I'd mix some pictures of a colder but drier last Thursday in with the next set of M50 songs! We are at set # 30-21 today, and we kick it off with:
30- Somewhere Only We Know, Keane: Unlike most of our countdown this actually charted on the Hot 100- #50 in 2004, as well as being top 3 in the UK. Here on the M10, it spent three weeks at #2. Check out the Druidic video here.
29- Love Is..., Dinosaur Jr: The second of 2 on the 50 for the elder statesmen of alt, and from here on there are only 5 non-#1s left. Here is the audio track for this one.
|Wow, blue skies. Haven't seen THEM in a while.|
|Scrappy braved the deeper, crunchy snow only rarely, and for only the best of reasons.|
28- Liana, The Joy Formidable: This song would have pointed higher had they not pulled it off Spotify for about three weeks after releasing it ON Spotify. The video, which will be a treat for Nature fans, is right here.
27- Let The Night Shine In, Scott Brothers: The first- and only so far- country #1 on the M10 comes from Property Brothers Johnathan and Drew Scott. Just proving they can do about anything right. Join the party here.
26- Tranquilize, Shakes: Here's one of those five that never hit the top, peaking at #2 for the boys from New Zealand. Audio track here.
|Guess this is far enough south for geese.|
|The work on the trail has things messed o=up even down at the south end! More to come...|
25- Quietly, The Explorers Club: One of two acts to hit the top twice this year, this song turned Dent May from a three week #1 to a two non-continuous weeks #1. Audio to the first one from the modern-day Beach Boys can be heard here.
24- Fall In Love, Phantogram: One of those songs I could play the instrumental track on loop for a long, long time. Watch Sara Barthel and co. here.
23- 1-2-3, Pom Poms: Another one that almost but didn't quite force its way to the top (Damn you, Agnes Obel, lol!), it is also one of just eight songs that I left in the same spot they would have pointed at. Check out Marlene Gold and the guys here.
|THAT is what one of the new tower bases looks like before installation...|
|A lot of crap to go through just to pee on a damn tree...|
Annnnnd 21- Small Town Talk, Boz Scaggs: Do I really need say more than, Boz Scaggs? And another video I haven't seen yet here!
|And that's what the base looks like installed.|
And this is the next day, trying out the trail for the first time. Apparently only the second man-beast team to try it since the snowfall and deep freeze, it was 4 inches of frozen crust crunchy snow. Scrappy was NOT amused.
