For those that follow me on social media, i tend to celebrate two birthdays : March 16 (my birthday) and October 16. October 16 is Bob Mould’s birthday. I’m sure most of you are aware of my fondness for all things Bob Mould. He has been a pretty big influence on my music taste (hence the name Heartbreak A Stranger). Now would seem a good time to introduce you to his music. Below, you can hear his first solo album ‘Workbook’ and see if this is something you would enjoy as much as i enjoy his music.
The Band – The Band
David Baerwald – Bedtime Stories
David Baerwald – Triage
George Harrison – All Things Must Pass
Neil Finn – One All
Neil Finn – Try Whistling This
Crowded House – Time On Earth
Crowded House – Woodface
Husker Du – Zen Arcade
It’s a big day here at Heartbreak A Stranger. You see, it is my birthday. The past few years, I have started a tradition. I have a simple request. You may or may not be aware, but I am a huge Bob Mould fan. I ask my friends to play some Bob Mould penned songs. It may be his solo work, his days in Sugar or Husker Du or maybe the theme to The Daily Show (it’s actually called ‘Dog On Fire’. Written by Bob). If you could indulge this one request, each year, every year, on my birthday, it would be appreciated.
