“Gold On The Ceiling” by The Black Keys – The Song of the Week for 3/12/2012

“Gold on the Ceiling” by The Black Keys is the official 2nd single from the fabulous and critically acclaimed album El Camino

Genre: Garage Rock, Blues Rock, Glam Rock

If The Black Keys want to keep putting out amazing singles, they are going to rack up Song of the Week nods (this is their third!). 

The 1st single off Brothers, “Howlin For You” was Song of the Week on 6/13/2011 and the infectious 1st single off El Camino, “Lonely Boy” was Song of the Week on 12/5/2011.

“They wanna get my,
They wanna get my
Gold on the ceiling
I ain’t blind
Just a matter of time
Before you steal it
It’s alright
Ain’t no blood in my eye”

“Disparate Youth” by Santigold – The Song of the Week for 3/5/2012

santigold-picture

“Disparate Youth” by Santigold is the 2nd song to be released from the new album Master of My Make-Believe

Genre: New Wave, Dub, Reggae Fusion, Electronic, Pop, Hip Hop

Perhaps you caught wind of Santigold during the buzz of her amazing 1st album Santogold released back in 2008. She is back with a new album Master of My Make-Believe set to be released April 23, 2012. “Disparate Youth” is the 2nd song to be released from the new album (“Big Mouth” was the 1st) but, as of now, it is the official 1st single from the album. In my opinion, a much better song than “Big Mouth” and more true to form!

“Don’t look ahead, there’s stormy weather
Another roadblock in our way
But if we go, we go together
Our hands are tied here, if we stay

Oh, we set our dreams to carry us
In the middle where we were one
Now we push right past to find out
Or either win what they have lost”

Top 15 Underrated Rise Against Songs

rise-against-band-pic

A couple weeks ago I posted the Top 20 Rise Against Songs and Top 20 Best Rise Against Songs – Editors Choice. Most of the songs on these lists, especially the Top 20 Rise Against Songs, are singles and widely known songs. Obviously the singles that Rise Against release and make videos for are great songs but there are plenty of songs in their discography that are amazing and in need of some attention. I wanted to highlight some of those not so known and under-rated Rise Against songs. Some of these songs are deeper in the album track list and might take a few more listens to grow on you but soon you will realize how awesome and under-rated they are!
