Music Mix, December 10, 2016

Playlist from the Saturday Night Music Mix, December 10, 2016.


  • 2006 keeps on rolling along, and this week we lost Greg Lake of Emerson, Lake & Palmer. I'm no expert on ELP but I played a couple of Lake songs. ELP's "Still… You Turn Me On" from Brain Salad Surgery highlight's Lake's guitar work. I added the seasonally apt "I Believe in Father Christmas" as well.
  • I finished with a couple of songs featuring Futura 2000, who worked as a graffiti artist in New York City in the late 1970s and early 1980s. The first is the Clash's "Overpowered By Funk" (from their Combat Rock album) which features Futura rapping at the end. After that came "The Escapades of Futura 2000", credited to Futura and with the Clash as the backing band. I don't know if the Clash ever backed up anyone else.
  • Jimmy Scott and Flea doing a rather unsual take on "Love Will Keep Us Together", from Lounge-a-Palooza. I only previously knew Scott because he once did a song with Pink Martini.
  • A continuing post-election undertone including songs like Natalie Merchant's wonderful take on the union classic "Which Side Are You On". It's a good question these days, whether or not you're on strike.
