I had the very cool pleasure of doing a radio interview for "Lemme Ask You a Question" on Radio Valencia. The host, Delfin Vigil asked me to come with a list of music that resonates, relates or informs my art and talk about why. As a music lover this was a wonderful challenge that I attacked with vigor.
Here are the songs that I picked...
1. Huey Lewis & The News - The Power of Love
2. The Mountain Goats - This Year
3. Tom Waits - Step Right Up
4. The Weakerthans - Left & Leaving
5. Jon Brion - Peer Pressure
6. Atmosphere - Not Another Day
7. Smokey Robinson & The Miracles - The Tracks of My Tears
8. The Beatles - Across the Universe (Let It Be 'Naked' version)
9. Weezer - Only In Dreams
10. The Faces - Ooh La La
You can download the entire interview on the Radio Valencia website! If you like what you hear, download a few more shows- there's some really great interviews and music to be discovered.
