  • Rump Shaker – WrecksNEffect** (Happy 52nd Birthday to the creator of ‘New Jack Swing,’ Teddy Riley!  Heproduced and guest vocaled on this jam)

  • Alive – Pearl Jam++
  • Long Day – Matchbox 20
  • Guilty – Gravity Kills**
  • Boom, Boom, Boom – Venga Boys
  • Things that Make You Go Hmmm…. – C+C Music Factory
  • Me Wise Magic – Van Halen  (are Eddie and Alex both sick?  Meanwhile, DLR thinks the band is finished and he’s inherited the band and their music as he gets ready for a residency in Vegas)

++It was on this date in 1990 that Eddie Vedder flew from San Diego to Seattle to meet up with his future band mates in Pearl Jam and start a week of recording what would be Ten.  He originally got wind of the band from a demo cassette given to him by Jack Irons (former Red Hot Chili Peppers and future Pearl Jam drummer).  Eddie laid his voice over 3 songs that became the Momma-Son trilogy, a mini-opera about ‘Incest, Murder and Prison.’  Here Eddie talk about it and then hear its performance below.

**This was on the Se7en soundtrack, a movie that still holds up extremely well.  Haunting and creepy.  And keep in mind the next time you see someone with very small, precise print that fills up EVERY available space on a page….they’re definitely obsessive, and might be a serial killer!

**I played this song today because it’s Julia Sweeney from SNL’s birthday (60).  Her character Pat appeared on a version of the song on the America’s Least Wanted.  The song was originally released on their Ugly as I Wanna Be EP, the first EP to ever go Platinum.  I don’t think there’s any chance Pat could be a skit on SNL today.
