Brick House, January 2, 2017

Playlist from the Brick House, January 2, 2017.


  • Prince's "Chelsea Rodgers", from his 2007 "Planet Earth" album. For a long time Prince was, to me, the guy with those great 80s songs. At some point I realized he never stopped making great music, it's just that I wasn't hearing any of it. I quickly made amends. I love to play non-80s Prince tracks, because you always know it's him, but he's doing something cool you've never heard before. If they ever open up his legendary vault, it'll change the world.
  • Thomas Dolby on the Brick House? Yeah, doing "Hot Sauce", which was written by George Clinton.
  • Punkin Machine's "I Need You Tonight" was the disco highlight of the show. I don't know why this song isn't better known, because it's fantastic. The guitar work would make Nile Rodgers proud.
