366TAS: 3:00 – The Spencer Davis Group – Gimme Some Lovin’

For whatever reason, I feel like I hear this song everywhere. Commercials, TV shows, movies, montages, etc. Checking in with the song’s Wikipedia page, I find that my impression is… totally true. It’s a great tune, so I can see why producers would want to use it, but maybe it’s time for you guys to branch out a little, eh? I’d be happy to offer some consultation if anyone out there is stuck on “Gimme Some Lovin'” and might want to give something different a try…

      I don’t have much 2012 stuff in my iTunes library just yet. That’s partly because I’ve been out of work a few weeks and just sitting ’round the house listening to stuff on Spotify. I’ve started a preliminary 2012 highlights playlist there, but if I had to guess at play counts, it would look something like this:

      1. “King of the World” – First Aid Kit
      2. “Melancholy Sky” – Goldfrapp
      3. “Eyeoneye” – Andrew Bird
      4. “Santo Domingo” – Rodrigo y Gabriela and C.U.B.A. (remix of original on 11:11)
      5. “No Sentiment” – Cloud Nothings
      6. “Deep in the Woods” – Tennis
      7. “Can’t Feel My Face” – Islands
      8. “Out From Inside” – Imperial Teen
      9. “Change the Sheets” – Kathleen Edwards
      and a newer fave
      10. “Hang it Up” – the Ting Tings (especially the Shook remix)

      the Grimes and Frankie Rose albums have gotten a fair bit of play too…
