Ten Tunes for a Sunday Morning

  1. Down With Disease, Phish
  2. Okayalright, moe.
  3. Hesitating Beauty, Billy Bragg & Wilco
  4. Houses on the Hill, Whiskeytown
  5. Airline to Heaven, Wilco
  6. When the Roses Bloom Again, Billy Bragg & Wilco
  7. (What’s So Funny ‘Bout) Peace Love and Understanding, Elvis Costello
  8. Take Me to the River, Talking Heads
  9. Young Americans, David Bowie
  10. Lost in the Supermarket, The Clash

The “Thumbprint Radio” feature of Pandora is very good. There’s a great, eclectic selection of music here, if a bit heavy on Woody Guthrie-penned lyrics (#3, #5, #6). A gifted songwriter and poet with political passion; I’ll give him that.

My pick of this group is #4. Ryan Adams is one of the best.

But for a Sunday morning, you could do worse than #5:

There’s an airline plane
Flies to heaven everyday
Past the pearly gates
If you want to ride this train
Have your ticket in your hand
Before it is too late
If the world looks wrong
And your money’s spent and gone
And your friend has turned away
You can get away to heaven
On this aeroplane
Just bow your head and pray
Them’s got ears, let them hear
Them’s got eyes, let them see
Turn your eyes to the lord of the skies
Take this airline plane
It’ll take you home again
To your home behind the skies . . .
