30 day music challenge
Day 1: A song you like with a color in the title.
Black Dog by Led Zeppelin, but there are tons of others. First, I think I should get bonus points for the ones by bands that have colors in their names too, like Nights in White Satin by The Moody Blues, Bad Luck Blue Eyes Goodbye by The Black Crowes, and Little Black Submarines by The Black Keys. And maybe also Sky Blue and Black by Jackson Browne - does that count? Here’s more:
The Black Crowes - Hard to Handle
The Black Crowes - Twice as Hard
As fond as I am of Adam Levine, it’s Chris Robinson who’s got the moves like Jagger.
The Band - The Weight
I have a friend who runs the library at a small college up in Ohio and has a weekly show on the college radio station. He recently played something by The Band, and it reminded me how great they were. This is one of their best, The Weight, and in case you missed it, here’s an awesome cover by The Black Crowes.
Jimmy Page and The Black Crowes. What is and what should never be.
Even better than I remember:
The Black Crowes - Remedy
Wow, I hadn’t heard this before. One of the best bands of the 90s covering the best song by one of the best bands of the 60s/70s. The planets really align here.
