I Loved You First…


(She’s just so CUTE!)

This is a lyrical snippet from a track by Regina Spektor called Samson. I won’t be playing it this Wednesday, but the lyric (in a confusing sort of way) defines how I feel about Iowa City. It’s my last show of the semester, and this summer you will be peppered by my presence again on Wednesday nights from 8 to 10pm on KRUI 89.7.

Here’s what I played:

1. Lou Reed, I’ll be your mirror
2. Liz Phair, May Queen

3. The Amps, Pacer
4. Heatmiser, rest my head against the wall
5. Built to Spill, Out of Sight
6. Radiohead’s Lurgee
7. The Dream Syndicate, Then She Remembers
8. Frank Black & The Catholics, Bad Harmony of off pistolero
9. Fugazi’s Suggestion
10. Cat Power’s Nude as the News
11. Luna’s Pup Tent
12. Spacemen 3, Walking with Jesus
13. Yo La Tengo, Deeper into Movies

14. The Jesus & Mary Chain, Never Saw it Coming
15. The Kinks, I need you
16. The Animals, Baby Let me take you Home (I sing this to all the boys.)
17. Elvis Costello & the Attractions, Are you Straight or are you Blind
18. REM, Radio Free Europe
19. Talking Heads, I’m not in Love
20. Husker Du’s Could you be the one?
21. New Order’s Leave me Alone

22. Killing Joke’s Requiem

23. Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds, Thirsty Dog
24. PJ Harvey’s The Life and Death of Mr. Bad Mouth
25. The Beat Happening’s Godsend
26. Morphine’s Good

    Yo La Tengo played at Cornell last year, but I wasn’t around to see them. Did you know Liz Phair’s adopted father is one of the world’s foremost researchers on HIV? And you just thought she was a polyester bride.

    I did not know that about Liz, who is he?
