I'm back again with week 6 of Three Tune Tuesday. We moved house last week and are currently staying in a beautiful country house, while we wait for all the paperwork to go through for our new home on Ireland's West coast - exciting times!
Now, back to the music. Keep scrolling down to find this week's recommendations.
For those unfamiliar, with Three Tune Tuesday....
Every Tuesday I'm going to share 3 songs which I like to listen to and I invite your feedback in the comments below. Or why not have a blast of your own Three Tune Tuesday and mention me in the post and I'll come and find the post and hopefully upvote it. It'll be a sweet way for us all to discover new music.
Also each week I try to include at least one Irish artist for your listening pleasure, as obviously with me being Irish, I'll know some songs that may not be widely known outside of Ireland.
Here are the week six recommendations for Three Tune Tuesday
** Drum roll please.....**
Tom Waits - Ol' 55 (1973)
How many songs can stand the test of time? Well, most of Tom Wait's back catalogue can in my opinion and certainly every song from 1973's classic album Closing Time. That's an album to go away and listen to if your not familiar with. It's also an album to go away and listen to if you are familiar with it, but haven't listened for a while. This is just one of many great tracks from that album.👂🎼
Foo Fighters - Best of You (2005)
The word legend is one that gets bandied around sometimes, especially here in Ireland, but it is a perfect description for Foo Fighters front man Dave Grohl. Anyone who fronts the Foo Fighters and Queens of the Stone Age and drummed for a band of Nirvana's stature qualifies for legendary status in my eyes and ears. The thing with Dave and the Foo Fighters is they seem to get better with age, like a fine wine! The song I've picked for you below is pure and utter Foo Fighters - loud, energetic, authentic and rockable. I hope you enjoy it as much as me 🤟
Republic of Loose - The Steady Song (2008)
As promised, here is my Irish artist for the week. Republic of Loose are seriously under-rated band who I think deserved more success. Fronted by Mick Pyro, the Funk quartet are a joy to listen to. They formed in 2001 and unfortunately disbanded in 2014. I'd love to see them reform some day.
This track is taken from 2008 album Vol IV: Johnny Pyro and the Dance of Evil.
That's it for another week. Those are your three songs for week six. Let me know what you think - good, bad or indifferent? Did you like them all or just one or two?
Also, as I said before, I love getting good steers for new tunes, so please tell me about the latest and greatest or obscure oldie brilliance below and I'll be sure to check em out.
