TOP 10 SONGS ON THE PIG
Thursday, December 30, 2004
10. “Diggin’ On The Road,” by Sonia Dada. Here’s a band that made an impressive impact on The Pig this year. Sonia Dada is great harmonies and an original sound.
9. “Ashgrove,” Dave Alvin. Dave can do it all, from blues to folk to rock. This original member of the Blasters, who has gone on to do so much more, lets slip with how it all started and rocks it too.
8. “Rich Man’s War,” The Resentments. A political statement in a political year in a political community.
7. “Keep Me In Your Heart,” by Warren Zevon. A legendary master says good-bye so eloquently.
6. “Heaven,” by Los Lonely Boys. Brothers from San Angelino Texas have arrived! Their real harmonies and infectious rock and roll get under everybody’s skin.
5. “Last D.J.” Tom Petty–Chalk one up for us, a tribute to disappearing real radio.
4. “Conservative Christian Right Wing Republican Straight White American Male,” by Todd Snider. Another natural for KPIG from an artist who is a natural for KPIG.
3. “If Wishing made It So,” by The Subdudes. Straight from the 2003 Humbug HoeDown party to the air, great version of a wonderful song. There is a studio version on the new Subdudes CD titled Miracle Mule.
2. “We Can’t Make It Here Anymore,” by James McMurtry. A free download from James, available at JamesMcMurtry.com. He describes this as the only political song he’s ever written that “doesn’t suck.”
1. “It’s Hard To Kiss The Lips At Night That Chew Your Ass Out All Day Long,” The Notorious Cherry Bombs. Why do PIGs like this one? Self-explanatory!
