CIVL Station Manager Aaron Levy provides a shuffle themed around the last Cascade of the semester, and the break that’s to come upon us all imminently!
The Rolling Stones – “Miss You”
I’m not sure if the Stones actually had an entire disco “phase” so to speak, though with tracks like “Emotional Rescue,” and this impossibly catchy classic Keef and Mitch recording, there certainly is a significant volume of disco-oriented tunage from the original deadly duo of rock and/or roll.
Wyclef Jean – “Gone till November”
It won’t take until November, but The Cascade will be gone for a certain amount of time, likely to reappear at the start of the summer, and to stay consistent throughout and toward the fall, with a brief break in between. You just must understand; we can’t publish 52 weeks.
Arianna Grande – “Thank U, Next”
I’m willing to dedicate my shuffle every single week for the next year to whomever feels like they can go out and get a similarly inaccurately spelled/drawn tattoo of Chinese, Japanese, Korean, or otherwise similar characters, in tribute of the popular and recognizable chanteuse who brings us this hit.
The Smashing Pumpkins – “Farewell and Goodnight”
The Pumpkins have songs for every occasion! Songs for “Tonight,” “Today,” “The Everlasting Gaze,” “Quiet” songs, songs for “Tales of a Scorched Earth,” songs about “Bodies,” songs that amount to “Zero,” and countdown all the way up to “Rocket” launches. And then there’s this one, properly titled “Farewell and Goodnight.”
