Playlist Thursday: Local Artists

I am linking up with Pavement Runner today. I LOVE his music posts, mostly because I am always looking for new running songs to add to my playlist, but because of the format of his posts.

Something Old: Songs that are at least 5 years old.

Something Current: Songs that have been released within the past year.

Something to Consider: Songs that are not typically heard on the radio and may be by artists you’ve never heard of or considered running to.

Today’s theme is: Local artists. I am going to stick to the Boston sector for this one, but you can pick artists from your state if that’s easier. I already included NKOTB, Mark Wahlberg and LFO in previous posts (all Boston natives) so I will spare you this time!

SOMETHING OLD
Artist: Aerosmith

Title: Love In An Elevator

Side Note: Who doesn’t love Aerosmith. Also I definitely suggest reading Steven Tyler’s autobiography, crazy stuff, it is a miracle the man is still alive. I also got to meet him once, but I was 8 and had no idea who he was. This song was also my sister & I’s favorite!

Quotable: Gotta get my timin’ right. It’s a test that I got to pass. I’ll chase you all the way to the stairway, honey. Kiss your sassafras

SOMETHING CURRENT
Artist: Matt Nathanson

Title: Mercy

Side Note:I have loved Matt Nathanson since the late 90′s and actually got to meet him when he & Howie Day opened for Guster back in 2004. I am glad he is starting to get popular, his music is amazing. Oh and that concert, we were definitely only there to see Matt & Howie.

Quotable: “its in the click click click. Of the camera flash. Its in the definite kick up in the fame ball blast. But they don’t call and they don’t last. And you’re gone. Outshine”

SOMETHING TO CONSIDER
Artist: Dispatch

Title: Here We Go

Side Note: Dispatch was an amazing band from the 90s, we saw their last show at Madison Square Garden in 2007! Amazing. We just found out that they recorded and released that show.

Quotable: Bottoms up boys this is the last call. Happy hour doesn’t last too long. You know it never does
