Cinderella - Bad Seamstress Blues (Fallin' Apart At The Seams)
While I'm stuck in the late 80s, I thought I'd share a tune I loved back in 1988.

This song was the opening track from Long Cold Winter, Cinderella's second album. "Gypsy Road" was the bigger hit, but this was my favourite. It's got a great bluesy feel for a glam metal band.

Alice Cooper - Is It My Body
I once listed my favourite Greatest Hits collections. Alice Cooper's Greatest Hits was an easy choice.

In the late 80s and very early 90s I would hang at Joe's where his brother Frank would show off their stereo that actually went to 11. They cranked a lot of Ozzy and Van Halen and Alice Cooper's Greatest Hits. The Ozzy was alright and the Van Halen was okay, but the Alice Cooper struck a chord. I still love this album.

Joe is considering a run for city council. I think he'd be great. Go for it, Joe!

Nirvana vs. Lady Gaga
DJ Lobsterdust mashed up Nirvana's "Smells Like Teen Spirit" and Lady Gaga's "Poker Face". It works for me.

It's hard to believe this parody of The Cult's "Love Removal Machine" is over twenty years old.

I'm sharing this old CFNY nugget as part of a Holiday three-pack. Two more MP3s are on the way...

play Tipitina's Foundation - O Holy Night
A long time ago, there were two NBC series that took place behind the scenes of an SNL-like variety show. We all know and love "30 Rock", but do you remember Aaron Sorkin's "Studio 60 on the Sunset Strip"?

I watched "Studio 60 on the Sunset Strip", and three years later a song that aired on that series still makes my holiday playlist. There was a Christmas episode in which band members called in sick to create work for New Orleans musicians in need of cash. These musicians were given a spot on the show and they performed this fantastic rendition of "O Holy Night".

The most popular modern version of Christmas (Baby Please Come Home) belongs to U2, who recorded their version back in 1987. Well move over, Bono, Death Cab For Cutie has a pretty sweet version of the Phil Spector classic.

Add this to your holiday playlist.

Until Christmas, you're getting two MP3s a week, every Monday and Wednesday. Don't say I never give you anything.

This is from Christmas in the Stars: Star Wars Christmas Album. In this Star Wars fan's opinion, "What Can You Get A Wookie For Christmas (When He Already Owns A Comb)" is the best cut on the album.
