Friday Random 10 for 2/27/09

February 27, 2009, 11:32 am

Haven’t done one of these in a while, so…

  1. Simplify (Wes King, A Room Full of Stories)
  2. Let’s Groove (Earth Wind & Fire, Best of EWF Volume 2)
  3. When I Look at the World (U2, All That You Can’t Leave Behind)
  4. Stepping Stone (Clannad, Past Present)
  5. Toot Toot Chugga Chugga Big Red Car (The Wiggles, Toot Toot) [stop laughing!]
  6. Oh, Atlanta (Alison Krauss & Union Station, Now That I’ve Found You)
  7. Hidden Charms (Howlin’ Wolf, His Best: Chess 50th Anniversary)
  8. Getting Better (Beatles, Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band)
  9. Celebration Day (Led Zeppelin, Led Zeppelin III)
  10. Amelia’s Missing (John McLaughlin, Indiana)

Jon McLaughlin is perhaps the least-well known of the musicians in this list. He’s an outstanding local musician — straight out of Anderson! — whose piano-based pop is exceptionally well-crafted and who’s been blessed with national exposure lately. Here’s a live version of “Amelia’s Missing” which is probably my favorite song on the Indiana album.
