Like A Cloud

A mix tape I made for a friend a few years ago with the liner notes I sent.

SONG NOTES (A)

1. Bullet From a Gun/Teddy Morgan & the Pistolas. BBQ rock.

2. Sara Smile/Hall and Oates. Classic.

3. We Just Disagree/Dave Mason. Makes the purchase of Dave Mason's Super Hits worth it.

4. Dizzy Road/Run Westy Run. '80s indie rock from the Minneapolis scene.

5. Surf City/Ramones. From an alternate universe.

6. Seen Your Video/Replacements. At the top of their game, unknowingly.

7. Stop It/Pylon. Perhaps the best band to ever come out of Athens, Ga.

8. Bull in the Heather/Sonic Youth. Mmmm, Kimmmm.

9. Take Me to the Paradise/Robbie Fulks. His Geffen record a minor masterpiece.

10. Too Hot to Handle/UFO. Lights Out a rock classic.

11. Mr. Blue/Garth Brooks. Remake better than the original.

12. If I Can't Have You/Eve's Plum. See No. 5.

13. That Truck/Texas Rubies. Change my name to Mavis.

(B)

1. I'd Really Like to See You Tonight/England Dan and John Ford Coley. Their real names?

2. Spirit of the Radio/Rush. Cannot be denied.

3. Steal Away/Robbie Dupree. Just for fun.

4. Take This Hurt Off Me/Teddy Morgan & the Pistolas. Rockin' the porch.

5. Livin' Thing/ELO. Just felt right.

6. Love Hurts/Gram Parsons. Holds a lot of rain.

7. Ooh Las Vegas/Gram Parsons. Irresistible.

8. (We're Not) The Jet Set/John Prine & Iris DeMent. See No. 7, no matter who sings it.

9. Does This Bus Stop at 82nd Street?/Bruce Springsteen. The dope's that there's still hope.

10. No Surrender/Bruce Springsteen. The way it should've been recorded. More from a three-minute record.

11. Fisherman's Blues/Waterboys. Three minutes of pure bliss, sadness, hope, the slight cusp of despair.

12. She's Gone/Hall and Oates. It sounds so good. Check out the guitar.

13. Far Far Away/Wilco. In my arms and sway.
