Willie Nelson’s lawyers should take a close listen to this song. Sounds like Alice Gerrard lifted a few hooks from “Blue Eyes Cryin’ in the Rain.” Plagiarism is plagiarism even if it’s between two octogenarians.

CRYSTALEYES bu AViVAA

Eerie electropop from down under - this song could be a great soundtrack for a late night drive through San Francisco with your boss who you just hooked up with but now things are weird because he’s married and you don’t know what impact this evening will have on your chances for promotion. Too specific? Just leave me alone and listen to the damn song.

A breezy indie pop gem to bid summer farewell.

NIN closed their set on Monday at the Hollywood Bowl with this song. It was a haunting way to end a show, but not as haunting at Johnny Cash’s cover.

Just One of the Guys by Jenny Lewis

Still trying to make sense of that “I’m just another lady without a baby” line. Any  theories as to what it means?

"All our friends, they’re gettin’ on / But the girls are still staying young / If I get caught being rude in a conversation / With a child bride on a summer vacation / No matter how hard I try to be just one of the guys / There’s a little something inside that won’t let me / No matter how hard I try to have an open mind / There’s a little something inside that prevents me / It’s how I live / You got me here / Locked in this bathroom full of tears / And I have begged for you and I have borrowed / But I’ve been the only sister to my own sorrow / No matter how hard I try to be just one of the guys / There’s a little something inside that won’t let me / No matter how hard I try to have an open mind / There’s a little clock inside that keeps tickin’ / There’s only one difference between you and me / When I look at myself, all I can see / I’m just another lady without a baby / No matter how hard I try to be just one of the guys / There’s a little something inside that won’t let me / No matter how hard I try to have an open mind / There’s a little cop inside that prevents me / I’m not gonna break for you / I’m not gonna pray for you / I’m not gonna pay for you / That’s not what ladies do”

Sons and Daughters by Allman Brown and Liz Lawrence

This beautiful duet by Allman Brown and Liz Lawrence is a rather depressing song about a barren couple longing for children. Despite this rather heavy subject matter, Brown and Lawrence’s voices complement each other so well making this song one of my favorite male-female duets in recent memory.

"And I, will hold you tight, like the moon in the arms of the sky / And I, will keep you warm, I will build a fire in this house / And I’ll build a fire, you fetch the water and I’ll lay the table / And in our hearts, we still pray for sons and daughters / And all those evenings out in the garden, where we went / These quiet hours turning to years / And I, I’ll wrap myself around your heart I’ll be the walls of his heart / And I, I’ll keep light on, to call you back home / And I’ll build a fire, you fetch the water and I’ll lay the table / And in our hearts, we still pray for sons and daughters / And all those evenings out in the garden, where we went / These quiet hours turning to years / And it’s all to come for now we’re still young / Just building our kingdom but it’s all to come / And I’ll build a fire, you fetch the water and I’ll lay the table / And in our hearts, we still pray for sons and daughters / And all those evenings out in the garden, where we went / These quiet hours turning to years / It’s all to come for now we’re still young"
