Band: The Gaslight Anthem
Song: "Changing of the Guards"
Album: "Chimes of Freedom" (January 2012)
Review: Five stars. It rocks! Sensational. Best version ever, with the possible exception of Patti Smith's awesome version on her 2007 album, "Twelve," which for some reason is not available on iTunes, but is available at Amazon.
The lyrics of that song are among the greatest in all of rock music. Historical. Mystical. Religious. Apocalyptic. ("A messenger arrived with a black nightingale.") The Gaslight Anthem leave out the last verse, which some have objected to, but I think it works for their version. Favorite line:
"Gentlemen, he said
I don’t need your organization, I’ve shined your shoes
I’ve moved your mountains and marked your cards
But Eden is burning, either brace yourself for elimination
Or else your hearts must have the courage for the changing of the guards."
I guess I'd better quit fooling around and do my real work before my editor sends assassins.

Macklemore. I'm especially fond of "Thrift Shop" and "Same Love" on the album "The Heist"

Here in my environment I am surrounded by loud people who have no consideration for anyone else within 100 feet. They use speaker phones, talk over cubicles and otherwise abandon common cubicle decorum. I bought Skull headphones, loaded over 150 CDs to my Samsung Galaxy Note II and now I can work in peace. Currently I am listening to the Jazz playlist which include Dave Koz, Clarence Clemons, Esperanza Spaulding, Geri Allen, Miles Davis, Thelonious Monk, Charlie Haden, Harry Connick, Jr, Diana Krall, Chris Botti, Charlie Parker, Dave Brubeck, Charlie Mingus, Wynton Marsalis, John Coltrane, Chick Corea, and Herbie Hancock, just to name a few!!

My environment can be pretty loud as well. When I really need to concentrate: Mozart or just simple white noise on the head phones. Otherwise it's Blue Grass or Southern Fried Rock.
