    Tracks of the Week: Emotions

    Captain Beefheart "I'm Glad" - Don Van Vliet (aka Capt Beefheart) landed on planet Earth around 1967 to release his debut record Safe as Milk. This is his shot at doo-wop. Compared to Beefheart's later output, like Trout Mask Replica and Shiny Beast (Bat Chain Puller), this is pretty tame. So be thankful for that. Buy It.

    Pizzicato Five "Happy Sad" - Syrupy sweet, kitschy Japanese pop is what P5 is all about. You can't help but bounce around the room to this track. A definite highlight from their Sound of Music album from 1995. I still have my "Carte Pizzicato" fan club card that came with the CD. It comes with a warning: "Rubbing card on one's palm more than five times daily is not recommended." What?!? Buy It.
