COVER: Mark Ronson

“Just” [Radiohead]

Last night I explored the music of Mark Ronson and Dan Auerbach on mvyradio’s Hot Seat. I wasn’t quite sure how the hour-long show would turn out but I had the inspiration the night before and I thought I’d give it a shot. These are two of my favorite contemporary music producers – Ronson won Producer Of the Year at the 2008 Grammys and Auerbach took away that same award at this year’s ceremony.

I was actually quite pleased with how the two producers complimented each other. I played a set of music produced by Ronson and then a set produced by Auerbach and so on. All told, the hour of music was pretty stellar (*See list below). You can hear a replay of the show Sunday night at 10pm on mvyradio.

This is one of Ronson’s tracks that I really love, a cover of the Radiohead song “Just” with Alex Greenwald of the band Phantom Planet singing the vocals:

Song Of The Day

Mark Ronson feat. Amy Winehouse – “Valerie”

When I heard about Amy Winehouse’s death, this was the first tune I thought of. I know her catalogue  is filled with amazing songs, and this might seem like an odd favorite, but this song came out at a time in my life when I grabbed hold of it tightly. I remember listening over and over and over. It’s so FUN; it really lifts the spirits. I was somewhat saddened by Winehouse’s death, and for some reason, I haven’t listened to her music since then. Then the other night, “Valerie” came on at the bar and I had a moment…and I’ve been thinking about it ever since.
