Hilltop Radio No.52

Forecast: More covers, different mood.

Yes, all covers again, a couple even of the same songs but a more mellow “Glen Campbell friendly” mix. And if it starts with “Sunday Morning Coming Down” it may be a little too on the nose to call it a Sunday morning mix. Yet it probably goes well with a weekend morning, with or without breakfast beer.

Ray Stevens – Sunday Morning Coming Down
Buck Owens & His Buckaroos – Catch The Wind
Elvis Presley – Snowbird
Laura Cantrell – Trains and Boats and Planes
Villagers – Wichita Lineman (Live at RAK)
Rumer – A Man Needs A Maid
Norah Jones – Jesus, Etc. (Live)
Fairport Convention – Tried So Hard
Dillard & Clark – Don’t Let Me Down
Lester Flatt – Ruby, Don’t Take Your Love To Town
Greenbriar Boys – Different Drum
Rising Sons – Take A Giant Step
Sparklehorse – Galveston
Glen Campbell – Hold On Hope
Nick Lowe – Poor Side Of Town
Al Wilson – The Dolphins
Cowboy Junkies – Once I Was
The Everly Brothers – A Whiter Shade Of Pale
Okkervil River – It’ll Never Happen Again
Sammy Davis Jr. – Do What You Gotta Do
Jimmy Scott – Jealous Guy
Gabor Szabo, Gary McFarland & Lena Horne – Everybody’s Talking
Nina Simone – Here Comes The Sun
Frank Sinatra – Leaving On A Jetplane

Remember, weekends are perfect for going out and buying music.
