Father's Day

Last night I realized that Father’s Day is only a few days away and I still haven’t made the CD for my Dad that I planned. I hurriedly burned it last night (it’s a lot easier now that all my music is on my hard drive…no more shuffling cds around). Here’s the lineup:

  1. The Shins – “The New Slang”
  2. The Black Keys – “Girl Is On My Mind”
  3. The Arcade Fire – “Neighbourhood #4 (7 Kettles)”
  4. The Hidden Cameras – “Fear Is On”
  5. The Heartless Bastards – “Runnin'”
  6. Damien Rice – “The Blower’s Daughter”
  7. Petra Haden – “I can See For Miles”
  8. Damien Jurado – “I Can’t Get Over You”
  9. The Long Winters – “Bride And Bridle”
  10. Great Lake Swimmers – “I Will Never See The Sun”
  11. The Ditty Bops – “Sister Kate”
  12. The Kings Of Leon – “Molly’s Chambers”
  13. Keren Ann – “Chelsea Burns”
  14. The Dandy Warhols – “Not If You Were The Last Junkie On Earth”
  15. Evan Dando & Juliana Hatfield – “$1,000 Wedding”
  16. Neko Case – “This Little Light”
  17. Jay Farrar – “White Freighliner Blues”
  18. Bright Eyes – “We Are Nowhere And It’s Now”
  19. Steve Earle – “The Kind”
  20. Bob Dylan – “I Was Young When I Left Home”
  21. Matt Pond PA – “Athabaska”

He won’t love it all — the Hidden Cameras, Petra Haden, Dandy Warhols and Kings Of Leon songs are less likely to impress him — but he’ll dig on the Damien Jurado, Bright Eyes and Matt Pond PA tunes. Shit, that a 62 year old grandfather would like any of these just proves how cool my dad’s taste in music is.
