Threesome Thursday

This week’s Threesome is dedicated to Dawn Summers. I bet you didn’t know it was her birthday, did you? Who am I fooling? The entire world knows it is her birthday. Even the Empire State Building is lit up white/white for her birthday – get it, vanilla, vanilla? I bet you were thinking racist thoughts instead.

Enjoy this threesome of birthday songs. And Ms. Summers, I insist that you listen to each one.

The first birthday song to get you started is from Röyskopp.

PLAY Happy Birthday

The second birthday song is from The Birthday Party. I know that Dawn is a Nick Cave fan so she should enjoy this one. ; )

PLAY Happy Birthday

The third birthday song is from Altered Images. Whenever I think of birthday songs, this one always pops into my head, even before The Beatles and Sugarcubes.

PLAY Happy Birthday

I considered using The Smith’s Unhappy Birthday but Dawn would really think that I hate her if I had included it in the threesome.

Threesome Thursday

I thought I’d mix up this week’s threesome a bit. The three songs are not from the same artist but are instead three cover songs.

First up is Gary Numan’s Down in the Park covered by the Foo Fighters.

PLAY Down In The Park

Second is The Lovemongers covering Led Zeppelin’s Battle of Evermore.

PLAY Battle Of Evermore

And finally, Moby covers Joy Division with New Dawn Fades.

PLAY New Dawn Fades

Threesome Thursday

I’ve been slacking on my Mary Monday and Twofer Tuesday again so it looks like another threesome for this week. Not that I’m complaining, I’m thumbs up for a good threesome. Enjoy this one from the Pixies.

PLAY Where Is My Mind

PLAY Debaser

PLAY Is She Weird

Threesome Thursday

Due to the holiday and catching up at work I missed this week’s Mary Monday and Twofer Tuesday. I thought I’d make up for it with a Threesome Thursday. Sorry, no pictures.

Carrying on with some more Robert Fripp, here are three from King Crimson. These are best played on the loudest volume that you can endure. Enjoy! (everyone except Dawn Summers who will definitely not like any of these songs.)

PLAY 21st Century Schizoid Man Including Mirrors

PLAY Red

PLAY Indiscipline
