Song of the Day: The Doors - Riders on the Storm. This is one of my favorite songs by The Doors, which may be why this isolated vocal of Morrison whispering completely freaked me out.
Song of the Day: Bob Dylan - Hurricane. Probably in my top 10 favorite Dylan songs, today’s SOTD is about Rubin Carter, who died this weekend.
Song of the Day: The Brian Jonestown Massacre - It Girl. Once this album is released on vinyl, my BJM collection will be complete. Let’s make this happen.
RIYL Spacemen 3, Black Lips, The Velvet Underground
Song of the Day: Ben Harper - God Fearing Man. Here’s an epic jam from Harper’s Fight for Your Mind, an album I was obsessed with in college.
RIYL Lenny Kravitz, Dave Matthews Band, Jimi Hendrix

Song of the Day: Built to Spill - Center of the Universe. Keep It Like a Secret is one of the best albums of the ’90s. Tell everybody you know.
Song of the Day: Simply Red - Holding Back the Years. I went down the internet rabbit hole yesterday and ended up obsessed with this song. I probably heard it a thousand times growing up, but for some reason it just connected yesterday.
RIYL Daryl Hall and John Oates, Sting, Tears for Fears
Song of the Day: Fishbone - Ma and Pa. Say Anything… was released 25 years ago, so in honor of Lloyd Dobler’s T-shirts, here’s a track from Fishbone’s Truth and Soul, one of the most underrated albums of the ’80s.
Song of the Day: Hole - Doll Parts. Stereogum has a good piece on the 20th anniversary of Live Through This. While I’m not as enthralled with the album as a whole as the writer, there are undoubtedly a few great songs on it. This one has always been my favorite.
Song of the Day: White Magic - Keeping the Wolves from the Door. Love this vocal performance like I do.
