C (the brother) and I have overlapping musical tastes, but admittedly I do find a lot of his singer songwriters dull and unimaginative. Some of the artists are just the singer songwriter equivalent to elevator music, a fact which C disputes quite vehemently. Judge for yourselves.
Josh Ritter: C was extolling the brilliance of Mr Ritter this evening. I joked that I didn't like Josh Ritter because I didn't like John Ritter, but the humour was lost on the miserable Ritter-lover.
Right Moves (live on Jools Holland)
Piers Faccini: You know how I am with preaching the good word of the New Self? C is this way about Piers. It's like a religion to this kid. C met Zach Braff awhile ago, and even thought to recommend Piers to him. C is on the lookout for his music in the next Zach Braff vehicle as he suspects it would be as per his recommendation.
Each Wave That Breaks and If I (La Blogoteque sessions)
Grinning in Your Face and Death Don't Have No Mercy (La Blogoteque sessions)
Ben Harper: I know some of you like Ben Harper, and though C may not believe, I have featured him on here before. Uh, I think.
Please Me Like You Want To (with Jack Johnson)
When It's Good
Priscilla Ahn: C says, "I like her. I think her voice is amazing. I would love for her to lull me to sleep every night for the rest of my life." I know for a fact he actually wouldn't mind engaging in rude relations with her, but we'll just pretend it's all about the music. I feel as if I must like her because she's a fellow Pennsylvanian.
The Boob Song
Brett Dennen: I'm sure C has told me about him in the past, but like I said, so many of them sound the same and I struggle to tell the difference.
Ain't No Reason
Here's the playlist, as per usual. Josh Ritter's "Monster Ballads" is missing, as I couldn't find it on playlist.com, but I have substituted "Harrisburg" because it's my hometown, and woot! There aren't many options for Piers Faccini, so I have only been able to use "If I", but I have included two additional songs in case you have Piers fever. No "Boob Song" on playlist.com either, so you'll have to make do with "Dream" and "Leave the Light On" from Priscilla Ahn. Remember kids, if the playlist doesn't show up, just pop it out. Words to live by.
