Monthly Mix #13: March 2016

March 2016:
Somewhat sunnier than February because it's getting warmer outside.

1. Catfish & the Bottlemen - "Soundcheck"
I haven't heard crunchy, power-pop guitar like this in years.

2. The Jackson 5 - "I Want You Back"

3. Hero the Band - "Expectations"
Another band of brothers.  I'm not entirely sure why I like this song so much, but I cannot.stop.listening.

4. The White Buffalo - "Don't You Want It"
"Oh, like the first of spring..."

5. Caleb Caudle - "Tuscaloosa"
My friend Mel used to work with this guy at a pizza place.  "Well, I'm not looking to be fixed / Just understand that parts are broken" is a brilliant lyric.

6. The Flaming Lips - "The Yeah Yeah Yeah Song (With All Your Power)"
Worth a revisit, especially considering the current political climate.

7. Johnathan Rice - "What Am I Going to Do?"
One of my favorite tunes.

8. Penguin Prison - "Calling Out"
Just as catchy as "Don't Fuck with My Money," but you can sing it in public without any shame.

9. Electric Light Orchestra - "Telephone Line"
I never realized how sad this song is until recently.

10. Randy Newman - "Losing You"
