Mike Doughty - The Heart Watches While the Brain Burns (Oct 14th)

All his other albums have had a thread, and this lead tune, Sunshine, is too great not to post. Listen, enjoy. Doughty. Couldn't get the Soundcloud embed to work if someone would like to help me out.

Quote:
Sunshine
[Only registered users can see links.]





1. “Sunshine”: rapped verses between choruses of a John Denver sample.

2. “A Fanfare”: me playing a riff of my own for ten seconds.

3. “Jimmy Bell”: my version is based on the version that 15 60 75 the Numbers Band recorded, but it’s a blues song written by Cat Iron.

4. “Take Me Home, Country Roads”: yep, the John Denver jam—with Rosanne Cash singing on it.

5. “Southern Girls”: by Cheap Trick

6. “Tightrope”: chorus from the Stone Roses; rapped verses from me.

7. “Send in the Clowns”: an instrumental version, played with Andrew “Scrap” Livingston on cello, and “Cashmere” Dan Chen on the Wurlitzer electric piano.

8. “Running Back”: by Thin Lizzy

9. “Sit Down, You’re Rocking the Boat”: from the musical Guys and Dolls, and non-ironic! With Scrap and Dan.

10. “Boy + Angel”: by Doveman, aka Thomas Bartlett, whom I played with for a couple of years—since then, he’s played with Glen Hansard, the National, Antony and the Johnsons, and loads of others.

11. “Reach Out”: by Cheap Trick, from the soundtrack of the dreadful and fantastic 1981 animated movie Heavy Metal. I waited behind Ike Hall at West Point for Rick Nielsen, when I was 13, and asked him to play this tune. He laughed, baffledly.

12. “Higher State of Consciousness”: …segued into from the above. By Josh Wink.

13. “Ta Douleur”: sung entirely in French! Originally by Camille.

14. “God’s Song”: (That’s Why I Love Mankind): by Randy Newman.

15. “Mistress”: by Red House Painters.

16. “Words”: by Low, with whom I toured in the 90s.

I agree there shouldn't be a new thread for every album, but not because he isn't worthy.

I can't wait to hear Ta Douleur... you may remember it from the SNL skit with Emma Stone.

I only did it because it is a TDC tradition. A good one, at that.

I searched for the last album thread, and was going to just post it there... but given the fact I knew we wouldn't be able to easily change the title I just said fuck it.

Yeah, I just thought of that, it's true.

if you would have told high Doughty he'd eventually be a sober square rapping between John Denver samples he'd cuss you out.
