Playlist, 11-4-16

RadioCPR2This week’s “Imperial Bedroom and Other Chambers” tour from Elvis Costello got us wanting to hear the recorded versions of much of what he played.

His posing of the question “Where are the strong and who are the trusted?” in “(What’s So Funny ‘Bout) Peace, Love and Understanding?” led to our moment of discontent and the election at large, featuring about half of the “30 days 30 songs” effort online, with new topical songs from Aimee Mann, Death Cab for Cutie and others, as well as songs about Presidents past. Woody Guthrie was represented three times, in his own song and in two with music provided by contemporary rockers, from Wilco and Billy Bragg to U.S. Elevator, who put music to newly-found Guthrie lyrics criticizing the racist real estate practice of Trump’s father.

Closed out with a lot less Blaster than I had planned.
