Well, the week which saw the release of the amazing BAMM.tv app is over. No doubt you’re going to spend much of your weekend exploring the app, but – in the meantime – let’s enjoy our traditional Friday playlist. This week we’re delving into the musical tastes of BAMM.tv CEO Chris Hansen …
1. “The Divided Sky” – (Junta, 1988) – Phish
It’s impossible not to be inspired by this song. Trey’s guitar is six strings of victory throughout.
2. “Layla” – (Layla and Other Assorted Love Songs, 1970) – Derek and the Dominoes
Another epic interweaving of guitar and piano and the perfect running tempo.
3. “Have You Ever Seen the Rain?” – (‘Pendulum’, 1970) Creedence Clearwater Revival
One of the first songs I’ve ever truly loved, especially the bassline. This short but sweet melody carries us into the next phase of the mix.
4. “Nulla in Mundo Pax Sincera,” (from the soundtrack of Shine) – Antonio Vivaldi
At this stage in the run, I’m usually coming up on some kind of landmark–AT&T park, the Bay Bridge, Coit Tower, etc. One Saturday I happened to be running by the farmer’s market at the Ferry Building when this song came on and it was transcendental. I may have just been lightheaded, but I think it was the song.
5. “The Only Redeemer” (The Only Redeemer, 2002) – Noiseshaper
And now for something completely different. If you have any love for dub and deep house, this song will make you “move your feet to the promised land.”
