3296. Green Day - Good Riddance (Time of Your Life)

https://images-na.ssl-images-amazon.com/images/I/71dBwWTWgKL._SX522_.jpg
From: nimrod; Year: 1997; Genre: Alternative Rock
Boy, it's been a while since I visited the band Greed Day, and I thought I should pick another one.
Whilst I've had somewhat of a fondness for the raw energy of their early albums such as Kerplunk, there's no arguing that their music had matured a lot by the time nimrod came out. This one really shows it in my opinion and has always been one I've liked since I first heard it; there's something about a song with this high level of emotion both lyrically and musically that really can stir the emotions in the listener as well.

3295. Luther - It's Good for the Soul (Parts I & II)

http://www.interestment.co.uk/site/wp-content/uploads/2009/01/luther-luther-380x350.jpg
From: Luther; Year: 1976; Genre: Funk/Disco/Soul
Oi vey, another Funky Friday so it seems... I was going to pick another song until I realized wot day it was; I really need to have some caffeine in my bloodstream before getting on the computer.
This is another funky track from the debut album of Luther Vandross' band of his namesake. This totally fun song definitely is one to make you wanna get up and boogie, especially if you have some platform shoes or roller skates around; just need a oldschool light show or lit up dancefloor....
Anyway, it's sad to say that I started getting to this band after watching some old Saturday morning public service shorts that featured the velvety voice of the late-great Luther Vandross; his voice certainly brings back a lot of memories of sitting in front of the television on Saturday mornings watching cartoons... oh the memories.

3279. Neil Young - Computer Age

https://images-na.ssl-images-amazon.com/images/I/712oQ2DqIGL._SX522_.jpg
From: Trans; Year: 1982; Genre: Synth Rock/New Wave
Off and on lately I've still been listening to a lot Neil Young, and was thinking about this really different and experimental album today. I thought I'd pick one from it; this song seemed to fit my mood quite well. To me, this track in particular, makes me think of more or less what you'd hear from a collaboration between Neil Young and Jeff Lynne; especially from this early 80s era. It's interesting to see how for Neil Young was willing to take his music and push himself and his art; an amazing record in its own right for that reason alone.
