Hi-Fi Friday: August 7, 2015


I have this method of ranking music in my library, which currently consists of 34,968 songs: By default, all new songs in my library get ⭐️⭐️⭐️. As I listen to them, I sort them as follows: ⭐️ means it’s “rubbish” and I’ll probably delete it from the library, ⭐️⭐️ means it’s just “meh” but I’ll probably keep it, ⭐️⭐️⭐️ means it’s okay and we will probably talk over it, ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ means I really like and may potentially sing at random, ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ means everyone better shut the fuck up because my song is on! You know the kind of songs I’m talking about. We all have them.

These are mine, one post at a time.

I’m starting my approach to this with songs I’ve given ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ to in iTunes. There’s only 90 of them at the moment. I’ll probably sneak in an occasional ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ as well.

It’s been an event-filled week that I should probably blog about, but instead, I’ll take the time to get some soothing tunes out there.

Duets are the August theme. I “let” Blobby pick this month since he offered me the choice last.

And for my first, I’m going with Brian Setzer and Gwen Stefani. Two guilty pleasures all wrapped up in one!

I’ve always been a big fan of Brian Setzer, both with the rockabilly Stray Cats and later with the swing-sounding The Brian Setzer Orchestra. I suppose even some of his solo rock stuff is pretty good too.

And Gwen Stefani. Love! I’m probably one of a few people on the planet who do, but hey, I do. Since the early days of No Doubt (and even the later stuff that’s a little droll), and even some of her solo work, I do love me some Gwen.

And put them both together? Helloooooo!!!!!!!!

I present The Brian Setzer Orchestra performing “You’re the Boss” featuring Gwen Stefani.

Until next time...

  1. WHAT is w her vibrato on this? It’s not appealing (my opinion, of course). Distracting at best. …..but I had never heard this song before.
