The premise for "Repeat Offenders" is simple--take 7 songs that I have played continuously over the course of the past week, and share them with you. Classics, new tracks, hits, rarities--anything goes, as long as I couldn't get it out of my head! Now to the songs, in no particular order.
T. Rex - "Mambo Sun"
Glam Rock was on repeat throughout the week
David Bowie - "Watch That Man"
Glam Rock was on repeat throughout the week, part 2
The Dirtbombs - "Ever Lovin' Man"
TV on the Radio turned punk rock, and succeeds
Pains of Being Pure at Heart - "Stay Alive"
One of my favorite bands from last year--anthemic shoegaze
Elliott Smith - 2:45 AM
What 2:45 AM can and should sound like--dark, eerie, and full of melancholic beauty
Ryan Adam & The Cardinals - "Dear John"
Stunningly serene duet with Norah Jones blows me away
Pink Floyd - "Wish You Were Here"
Pink Floyd's ode to troubled ex-member Syd Barrett has and will always be one of my all-time favorites
