I hope you enjoyed the first week of 30 for 30 Project, my cover-song retrospective of my first 30 years of life! If you’ve missed the songs so far, they were:
1981: “Physical” – Olivia Newton John
1982: “Back on the Chain Gang” – The Pretenders
1983: “Hungry Like the Wolf” – Duran Duran
1984: “Wake Me Up Before You Go-Go” – Wham!
1985: “How Will I Know” – Whitney Houston
1986: “You Can Call Me Al” – Paul Simon
1987: “Alone” – Heart
As mentioned in my introductory post, my intent was never for 30 for 30 to be a daily project. Now that the shock and awe of the first seven songs is through I’m going to take a few days off to rest my voice and work up the arrangements that will take us through the middle of the 90s.
In the meantime, there is plenty more music by me on the web to hear! Download my 2010 demo record for free, watch a concert from my band Arcati Crisis before you buy tickets for our 9/24 full-band show at the Tin Angel, or check out a song I wrote for Eric Smith‘s novel that garnered coverage in the new issue of Jump Philly.
I already have my 1988 and ’89 tunes picked out, but past that it’s open road! What would you like to hear me cover from the first half the 90s? Would you prefer I stick with major hits everyone has heard, or go for some slightly more obscure tunes? Should I stick with pop, or make the jump to modern rock?
