Ween - Freedom of 76

I'm a little surprised with myself that it took me this long to post Ween on this blog.  They have quickly become one of my all-time favorite bands, and for good reason.  Ween is notorious for making albums that feature songs spanning many genres.  Here is a sample from 1994's Chocolate and Cheese album;

  Ween effectively blends humor and great song-writing to produce versatile and memorable albums.

David Bowie

Today I have some David Bowie to share with you guys.  I originally stumbled across this song after hearing Phish play a cover of it.  Truth be told, the Bowie version is much better.  I think this song has awesome lyrics and is one of Bowie's best works.

Budos Band to Wrap up the Weekend

Today I've got some awesome The Budos Band tracks on as I finish my first week of the spring semester.  If you're unfamiliar with The Budos Band here's a sample from their second album:

Funk Friday: The New Mastersounds
