I was attempting to create a playlist on Spotify to combine my usual iTunes playlist with new stuff I’ve found on Spotify. At the same time, I was reading this article on Grantland about Noel Gallagher.
The obvious next step, figure out what Oasis songs I had in my playlist. I had three. And it wasn’t very interesting: Wonderwall, Champagne Supernova, and Don’t Go Away. After some digging, I’m up to about 10.
Oasis was my favorite band at one point, somewhere around 8th or 9th grade. Oasis was my first concert. The past 10 years or so? Not so much Oasis. Except for my two years at work when I could only listen to CDs (no internet or iPod), I’m pretty sure I spun a lot of (What’s the Story) Morning Glory?
So here is a less than a huge hit, which is one of my favorites. It’s off The Masterplan, which if you don’t remember, was an album of B-Sides which was better than almost everything else out at the time.

Just this week I was wondering if Chiddy Bang was going to be my song of the spring. (It would have been last summer’s song, but Passion Pit took over.) Then the Childish Gambino EP that I got last week popped on to my iPhone.
I’m completely hooked on Freaks and Geeks. Here be the video …
You need a few listens to catch all the genius lines. If you think he looks familiar. It’s Donald Glover. He’s on Community. You should watch Community. Thursday TV is still the best, if you skip Outsourced and whatever that terrible Couples show is.
When I was looking for links to Chiddy Bang and Passion Pit posts, I found that they were my two Summer Soundtrack posts from last year. I named Passion Pit Track 1 almost exactly a year ago. So I guess naming summer tracks is already allowed. So I’ll put Freaks and Geeks as Track 1. Maybe this year there will be more than 3 tracks. Or maybe this will be the only one.

Panic! at the Disco dropped the ! for their last album and when I would have to review that album to friends, there was no other description than that it was lacking some !.
Maybe the ! has been back for a while, but this is the first I’m hearing about it. Check their site.

Stuck in my head all weekend (good thing it’s good) … As for the video, not sure what’s up with the zombies …
The cowbell is so odd at the beginning though. It’s all I hear and so out of place.

Oddly, I’m not much of a fan of 90s on 9 on Sirius. There is enough on there I don’t like that keeps me from leaving it on for more than a song or two. Tonight, they pulled out some Eagle Eye Cherry, and it had been too long. They followed it up with Vanilla Ice, but I couldn’t take that.

I Call Fives songs keep coming up on my iPhone. Not that I’m complaining. I think you’ll enjoy this one that came on during my walk to class this morning. (It was right after some Chiddy Bang, so yea, good morning.)

I should probably go with something that came out today, but I haven’t listened to anything yet. I bought The Gaslight Anthem and am tempted by The Ready Set. Instead, I caught a live version of All Time Low’s Coffee Shop Soundtrack. I found the video on YouTube and you have to love it for its ability to look like it was made in 1985.

My Summer Soundtrack is off to a slow start. I figure there should be a few tracks on it before Memorial Day. Here are two more tracks, bringing my total to three.
This one first caught my attention with a few of the ridiculous lyrics. It hooked me with the MGMT beat.
Will probably settle toward the bottom of the Summer Soundtrack but I have a feeling it will be played a million times.
