Song of the day: The New Pornographers – "Think About Me"

July 20, 2012

I’m going to be terribly unoriginal here (i.e., no thinking involved) and pinch a song from another blog for today’s Song of the day.

It’s a cover of Fleetwood MacThink About Me“, and I found it on Sal Nunziato’s Burning Wood blog (Hi, Sal!):

The New Pornographers – “Think About Me (2012)

Think About Me | The New Pornographers by concordmusicgroup

That appears on a Fleetwood Mac tribute album, Just Tell Me That You Want Me.

On Sal’s post, regular commenter FD13NYC (Hi, FD!) said that he preferred Michael Carpenter‘s version:

Michael Carpenter – “Think About Me (2011)

Here’s the original:

Fleetwood Mac – “Think About Me (1979)


I’ll try to think of an original post tomorrow, one that involves a song you won’t find just by going to another blog.

Musical coincidences # 160

December 15, 2011

Today’s coincidence comes to you courtesy of my friend Mr. Fabulous (aka Dr. Keats), with a little addition. (I couldn’t help myself.)

The astute Mr./Dr. noted the similarity between these two songs:

Fleetwood Mac – “Rhiannon (1975)


John Stewart – “Gold” (1979)


One factor that contributes to those two songs sounding related is the fact that John Stewart employed the services of two-fifths of Fleetwood Mac (the Stevie Nicks and Lindsay Buckingham fifths) to record “Gold”.

And when I listened to “Rhiannon” again, I remembered an Australian song that also messed around with the A minor chord:

Goanna – “Solid Rock” (1982)


Thanks, Mr. F, for supplying that coincidence.
