Description:
5/22/2017
*
As if a shooting star or comet (which had not been foretold by any frequented scientific journal or news source) was glimpsed traversing the night sky, I discovered some new music to hear.
*
Of course, in my mind’s eye, that glimpse of light in the heavens is none other than Chris Cornell after last week’s tragic ending of an artist beloved by a countless many. My thoughts and prayers are with his family and friends who are in mourning, as are we all. Meanings of some songs chosen for this show prior to his passing now take on a different meaning for me…
*
Dear Eddie, and dear Dave, PLEASE, stay strong… we need you, and others like you, more than you know! Maybe even more than we know.
*
“Keep yourself alive!”,

*
R.I.P. Chris, you’ll never be “Outshined”!

Joel Newnham

Wow! I'm discovering a lot of quality on here. It's great, specially Jelly Jam.

lightninghockeymusic

Excellent Joel! I'm glad you're discovering the same quality that I also found in these songs.
FYI, The Jelly Jam is one of those 'Super Groups' comprised of the guitarist/vocalist from King's X, the drummer from Winger and the bassist from Dream Theatre.
As always, thank you for listening!

Joel Newnham

Awesome song by Chris Cornell, we lost a musical legend that day.

lightninghockeymusic

I wholeheartedly agree with you on both points.

Livia's Fiction

Enjoyed the alt-90s vibe on this playlist. Got a Verve vibe along the way and what do you know Richard Ashcroft is on here. Nice Chris Cornell remembrance to start things off and hearing his influence throughout. Heard of his passing on my way to the beach :-/. When I got home I had to throw on an old 7" Loud Love EP, has some of his best caterwauling ^_^ for my ears (Loud Love and Fresh Deadly Roses).

lightninghockeymusic

Hi Livia, I too am a sucker for some well pitched caterwauling :-O
Glad you enjoyed the show!
Fyi, I'm currently working on an 'expanded' remembrance of Chris; he certainly deserves the best send off I can muster...one that shall be turned up loud so that he may hear it from the heavens.
Have a nice week,

*slays, the Marisa Nadler song slays me not stays me- damn autocorrect

Champoradical

Great opener, The Singles soundtrack was a hugely important album to me. I'm really liking the Thrice songs too. I've enjoyed everything I've ever heard from Marisa Nadler. She's got a song called Baby, I Will Leave You In The Morning that I have in my iPod that stays me every time I listen. Nice to hear some Richard Ashcroft. I always dug The Verve. Urban Hymns is one of those albums that takes me back to a good time & place in my life. Dug the Radiohead too. Good stuff dude!

lightninghockeymusic

Thanks, Champ, for your awesome feedback!
"Drown" from Singles blew me away back then (so...much...sweet...distortion!).
Had to include three Thrice songs; I first discovered their singer, Dustin Kensrue, during the March show (gotta hear "Down There By The Train" https://www.mixcloud.com/lightninghockeymusic/discoveries-from-last-march-2017-03-21/).
I'll check out that MN song that 'staid' you ;)
"It's a bittersweet symphony this life"
Btw, Kensrue also does a wicked rendition of "Creep" for his March album, among other acoustic live covers.
Happy listening!
