Around the Blogosphere: Matthew Sweet, Collective Soul, Marshall Crenshaw, Built to Spill, Chapterhouse, Game Theory, ELO, et. al.

You want variety, you got variety. The brave and bounteous bloghosts continue to make our lives just that much fuller. I'm doing this bloggy style, i. e., the songs are listed pretty much in reverse chronological order. If you're in a 70s mood, pop right down to the end of this post. I was obviously impressed with the rich fare offered by my new friends (who don't know me) at Speed of Dark and bag of songs. I do not know if Tom at bos capitalizes any part of his blog's name, so I'll certainly correct it if needed. (Also, I keep wanting to type "speed of dork" but won't. It has nothing to do with the excellent blog itself, btw.)

Crooked Looks - Pay Day Baby - Instrumental Analysis
Golden City - Diamond Suits - Can You See the Sunset from the Southside?

Pilot - Magic - bag of songs – “Oh, ho ho, it’s magic.” – that one

"Speed of Dork"...that's funny. I always type "Speek of Dark" on accident.

Thanks for the mention!
