Various Artists “Music That Changes the World”

July 31, 2011

This is from the David Lynch Foundation. You know him as the Twin Peaks guy. Most of these names are already familiar to you, so I’m not going to waste your time. Here are the ones that stood out to me, however.
The Jakob Dylan/Daryl Hannah duet, “Won’t You Stay,” sounds exactly as you would expect it to. It sounds as if they really enjoyed recording this one. Maybe someday he’ll invite her up on stage to improvisationally perform it.
If you ever wondered what happened to Arrested Development, well, at least for five minutes they recorded “Let It Go” for this comp. It sounds like any other R&B song, but good on them for still putting it together.
Peter Gabriel is timeless. Here is a good excuse to listen to a different song of his. It’s “Curtains,” I tells ya. The Heather Nova track is a live recording of “Doubled Up.”
The Tom Waits submission, “Briar & the Rose,” is recorded live and pretty good. Maybe he’s doing a Bruce Springsteen impression. Maybe that’s what Waits sounds like. Maybe it’s a Springsteen cover. I won’t pretend to know, and I won’t look on the Internet. I want you to see how ignorant I am.
Slightly Stoopid give you the obligatory reggae track, “Wiseman.” The Neon Trees song is “Animal.” Even I know that song.
Au Revoir Simone pick up the rear with “The Boys of Summer.” Remember Bryan Adams? Is it a cover? Oh yes.
