For the 100th episode of Strong Songs, Kirk takes a deep dive into one of the most famous concept albums ever recorded. Pink Floyd's "The Dark Side of the Moon" is an instantly recognizable, widely discussed album, played and replayed to the point that it's easy to forget that it was made by a handful of young people with some instruments and a mixing desk. So buckle in for a whirlwind tour of the entire record, with pauses along the way to highlight some of the sounds, styles, and techniques that made The Dark Side of the Moon such an artistic and technological breakthrough.ALBUM: The Dark Side of the Moon, 1973Music By: David Gilmour, Richard Wright, Roger Waters, Nick MasonLyrics By: Roger WatersEngineered by: Alan ParsonsALSO FEATURED/DISCUSSED"Blue in Green" by Bill Evans/Miles Davis from Kind of Blue 1959"The Wizard of Oz," 1939The 2003 documentary Pink Floyd: The Making of The Dark Side of the MoonOUTRO SOLOIST: Kirk HamiltonKirk is the host of Strong Songs.

Drummers like Clyde Stubblefield, Zigaboo Modeliste, and Bernard Purdie defined the sound of the bands they played with not because of their flashy chops, but because they knew how to lock down a groove. On this episode, Kirk goes deep into one groove apiece by each of those drummers - Stubblefield on James Brown's "Cold Sweat," Modeliste on The Meters' "Cissy Strut," and Purdie on Aretha Franklin's "Rock Steady" - with help from special guest drummer Russ Kleiner.FEATURED/DISCUSSEDCold Sweat by James Brown and the Famous Flames, 1967"Cissy Strut" by The Meters from The Meters, 1969"Rock Steady" by Aretha Franklin from Young, Gifted, and Black, 1972"Papa's Got a Brand New Bag" by James Brown, 1965"So What" by Miles Davis from Kind of Blue, 1959The Treme Brass Band at the Red Beans and Rice parade, 2013“Shoo Fly Marches On,” by Dr. John, 1973Babylon Sisters by Steely Dan from Gaucho, 1980SPECIAL GUEST: Russ KleinerRuss is one of Kirk's oldest friends, a drummer and percussionist who currently lives, teaches, and performs in Connecticut.

"Jesus, Etc." by Wilco

"Jesus, Etc." by Wilco

2022-09-0953:51

Few lyricists have Jeff Tweedy's ability to fluidly shift between plainspoken emotion and abstract imagery. The Wilco frontman has been writing beautiful, beguiling songs for more than three decades, and there is no way to pin down what any of them "means." There's only what they mean to you, right then, in the moment, as you listen to them. That's certainly true of "Jesus, Etc." one of many standout tracks off of Wilco's groundbreaking 2001 album Yankee Hotel Foxtrot. On this episode, Kirk explores some of the writing and arrangement techniques that help make this song, and all of Tweedy's songs, so special.Lyrics by: Jeff TweedyMusic by: Jeff Tweedy and Jay BennettAlbum: Yankee Hotel Foxtrot, 2001Listen/Buy via SongwhipAlso Featured/Discussed:"I Am Trying to Break Your Heart," "War on War," and "The Ashes of American Flags"  from Yankee Hotel Foxtrot"She's a Jar" and "A Shot in the Arm" by Wilco from Summerteeth, 1999Audio from Jeff Tweedy's 2021 interview on The Ezra Klein ShowExcerpts from Tweedy's 2020 book How To Write One Song: Loving the Things We Create and How They Love Us BackAudio of a pedal steel guitar demonstration by Steve Fishell: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NrbSL92Kz1YThis episode has been updated to better identify one of the chords in the chorus.OUTRO SOLOIST: Dan NervoThis episode's outro soloist is the fantastic Dan Nervo.

There are few singer-songwriters as inimitable as Joni Mitchell, with her swirling song forms, leaping melodies, and that magical voice, untethered by the laws of gravity.

Back in July 2020, Kirk made a special episode of his video games podcast Triple Click all about the music of Final Fantasy VII. It was basically an episode of Strong Songs, it just ran in a different podcast feed. Now it's July 2022, and with Strong Songs on break for the month, it seemed like a good time to run that episode in the Strong Songs feed. So, here it is!Original Show Notes: July 16, 2020It’s time for a new segment called “Hey, Listen!”, where Kirk takes listeners deep inside the music for a given video game. This first (and, as it turns out, only) edition focuses on 1997’s Final Fantasy VII, as well as some of the new arrangements from 2020’s Final Fantasy VII Remake. What makes the original game’s music so special? What new musical ideas are introduced in the Remake? And why is Aerith’s theme so magical? Put on your headphones for this one, and turn up the volume.Featuring multiple tracks from Final Fantasy VII (1997) composed by Nobuo Uematsu, as well as the following Uematsu compositions re-arranged for Final Fantasy VII Remake (2020):"Prelude" arranged by Yoshitaka Suzuki"Airbuster" arranged by Tadayoshi Makino"Main Theme from Final Fantasy VII - Sector 7 Undercity" arranged by Shotaro Shima"Aerith's Theme - Home Again" arranged by Shotaro Shima
Heathcliff! It's us, it's Strong Songs, we've come home!In March of 2021, the time was right for a deep dive into the music of the great Kate Bush, and what better song to analyze than her breakthrough 1978 hit, "Wuthering Heights." (And in July of 2022, with Bush's fame at new heights thanks to Netflix's Stranger Things, the time is perhaps even more right.) This song has it all - odd phrasing, shifting key centers, soaring vocals, character narration, an epic guitar solo, a red dress, and a celesta.Written by: Kate BushAlbum: The Kick Inside (1978)Listen/Buy: Apple Music | Amazon | SpotifyALSO FEATURED/DISCUSSED:“James and the Cold Gun” and “The Man with the Child in His Eyes” by Kate Bush from The Kick Inside, 1978“Sat In Your Lap” and “The Dreaming” by Kate Bush from The Dreaming, 1982“Running Up That Hill” by Kate Bush from Hounds of Love, 1985Richard Buskin's 2004 Sound on Sound article about the writing and recording of "Wuthering Heights" - https://www.soundonsound.com/techniques/classic-tracks-kate-bush-wuthering-heightsThe 1886 remake/remix of "Wuthering Heights"Kate Bush's iconic Red Dress music video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BW3gKKiTvjsNoel Fielding's incredible live reenactment of the Red Dress video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=du4uH1fC9B8A demonstration of the bell tree: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rhStPnEcXrk“The Dance of the Sugar Plum Fairy” by Pyotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky from The Nutcracker Suite, 1892 performed by the Vienna Philharmonic, 1999“Starman” by David Bowie from The Rise and Fall of Ziggy Stardust and the Spiders from Mars, 1972“Mr. Blue Sky” by Electric Light Orchestra from Out of the Blue, 1977OUTRO SOLOIST: Charles McNealCharles McNeal is a killin' Oakland-based sax player who plays all over the bay area.

Tori Amos was one of the most distinctive songwriters of the 90s, and remains a powerful musical voice decades later. "Silent All These Years," one of many strong singles off of her 1992 solo debut, is a perfect encapsulation of so many of the things that make her music special.On this episode, Kirk takes a close look at this delicate, tenuously balanced song, from its floating opening piano line, to its expansive, time-warping bridge, to its hopeful conclusion. It's our turn now to stand where she stands; here, take hold of her hand.Written by: Tori AmosAlbum: Little Earthquakes, 1992Listen/Buy via SongwhipAlso featured: "Precious Things," also by Amos, from Little EarthquakesAmos performing "Silent All These Years" from Tori Amos Live at Montreaux 91/92OUTRO SOLOIST: Galen ClarkThis episode's outro soloist is the one and only Galen Clark. Galen plays keyboard and organ with the killer funk/soul group Outer Orbit, who you can find playing regularly around Portland, Oregon and occasionally on tour. Find more information at their website, https://www.outerorbitband.comUpdate 6/20: This episode initially misidentified the song's producer, Davitt Sigerson. It has been updated to credit him and string arranger Nick DeCaro, as well as to add some extra detail to the rhythmic breakdown of the intro (thanks Trevor!) and to add a second possible lyrical interpretation for the the third verse. The file swap may cause temporary issues with your download, depending on your podcast app, but it'll eventually work.

I hear you singin' in the wire... I can hear you through the whine... and the Strong Songs podcast is talking about one of the best songs of all time.On this episode, Kirk takes on Jimmy Webb & Glen Campbell's ethereal workin' song "Wichita Lineman," an ode to the profound poetry within all of us. It's a song without a chorus or a bridge that still feels complete, thanks largely to the way it subtly climbs from the street, to the wire, and up into the heavens. Written by: Jimmy WebbProduced by: Al De LoryPerformed by: Glen Campbell w/ The Wrecking CrewAlbum: Wichita Lineman, 1968Listen/Buy via SongwhipALSO FEATURED/DISCUSSED:“God Only Knows” by Brian Wilson & The Beach Boys from Pet Sounds, 1966Excerpts from "The Wrecking Crew!" documentary directed by Danny Tedesco, 2008Excerpts from Dylan Jones' book Wichita LIneman: Searching in the Sun for the World’s Greatest Unfinished Song, 2019“Galveston” by Jimmy Webb/Glen Campbell from Galveston, 1969Glen Campbell performing “Wichita Lineman” with a Fender Bass VI on The Smothers Brothers Comedy HourOUTRO SOLOIST: Carlos "Insaneintherainmusic" EieineCarlos Eienie is a prolific multi-instrumentalist and YouTube creator who's done some extremely fun jazz arrangements of great video game music, among other things.

Something weird happens at 29:30: your blues guitar plays over Annie Lenox' bridge and it's an awful sound. Played twice to be sure it wasn't something else. Maybe it could be tidied up?

I loved this episode ! thanks for the introduction to this tune though I am a big TMBG fan! I hadn't heard it in over 20 yrs as somehow Apollo18 isn't on my fave albums so it got buried. The reminder was great! Thanks again

Kirk, Bless you & your musical genes!!! 🙏🙏🙏 Absolutely loving each episode. Re-igniting my love for so many of these songs and hearing them with completely new ears. Genius approach, especially the multi-faceted facts & trivia you bring each time too. Leigh Sales from Chat10Looks3 raved about Strong Songs on a recent podcast episode of hers. Huge thanks to her too for the referral. Also, your speaking voice and tone makes all the listening very easy and smooth. I'm a fan from now on. Can you tell? 😂 Thanks so much. Please keep going. 👏👍💪 XOXO ps. Would love to hear your exposition on two of my favourite pieces of all time: Gerry Rafferty's 'Baker Street' and Al Stewart's 'Year of the Cat'.
