Left of the Dial Radio Playlist - 8/26/11

Last night’s show was a lot of fun. In addition to playing a good selection of new music from the new Circle Takes The Square EP, the new Cymbals Eat Guitars record, and Stephin Merritt's Obscurities compilation, I spotlighted some of my favorite Conor Oberst music in lieu of Bright Eyes' show in Brooklyn on Wednesday. Due to the hurricane, Bright Eyes has cancelled a number of dates including their show with Titus Andronicus in Mountain Park tomorrow.

Check out the playlist from last night’s show below with youtube links for each song.

I probably won’t have a show next friday (September 2nd) because I’ll be at the JEFF The Brotherhood show at The Space in Hamden CT. More information about that show can be found HERE.

"Pablo Picasso" by The Modern Lovers.

Song of the Day Number Fifty Two

Well some people try to pick up girls
And get called assholes
This never happened to Pablo Picasso
He could walk down your street
And girls could not resist his stare and
So Pablo Picasso was never called an asshole

Well the girls would turn the color
Of the avacado when he would drive
Down their street in his El Dorado
He could walk down you street
And girls could not resist his stare
Pablo Picasso never got called an asshole
Not like you
Alright

Well he was only 5’3”
But girls could not resist his stare
Pablo Picasso never got called an asshole
Not in New York

Oh well be not schmuck, be not abnoxious,
Be not bellbottom bummer or asshole
Remember the story of Pablo Picasso
He could walk down your street
And girls could not resist his stare
Pablo Picasso was never called an asshole
Alright this is it

Some people try to pick up girls
And they get called an asshole
This never happened to Pablo Picasso
He could walk down your street
And girls could not resist his stare and so
Pablo Picasso was never called…

because i can
