Hi-Fi Friday: January 29, 2016

I guess I kind of picked out the music theme for the month. Hopefully Blobby agrees with it. At some point in a previous discussion, he brought up the idea of popular artists doing old timey music. I love old timey music. Well, I guess it depends on who is defining old timey music. Or if you’re a Doctor Who fan, old timey wimey music. I enjoy listening to music from the 1920s to the 1950s. To me that’s old timey music. So I’ll be focusing on songs by modern artists who have more-or-less either covered or been inspired by a song from that time zone. Hopefully Blobby will be able to run with this. Hopefully I will as well.

This category ended up being WAYYYYYYYYYYY more difficult than I imagined for me. I think mostly because I don’t have as many popular artists doing one-off old timey songs as much as I do artists who do all old timey songs. So I’ve been racking my brain trying to find entries.

This one might be reaching a little. Might.

It definitely has that old timey sound to it. In the burlesque fashion. Which I’m all about. Except maybe that movie of the same name. *shudder*

And this from a punk band.

Most fans of the band at the time HATED this song. Because it wasn’t anything like what they was known for.

From Green Day’s 2000 album “Warning”, I give you “Misery”:

Until next time...
