GROUNDHOG DAY again, and again, and again…

We are sorry to announce that due to licensing issues or some other artist-rights conflict, we can no longer publish audio for the majority of the songs from the terrific 2010 Groundhog Day play list of guest blogger and Supply & Demand Music president Tom Weyman. Thus, rather than re-post year after year, as planned, Tom's brilliant list of songs he could listen to year after year if stranded on a desert island, we chose to remake the list with 12 choices of our own. {We feared even Tom would tire of the measly 2 songs we could still publish, no matter how much he loved them, and perhaps walk off the island into the deep.} Here are our Desert Island Dozen, inspired by Tom, and backed by hopes that the groundhog doesn't see his shadow. Winter-lovers though we are, all this warm weather of late had made us yearn for Spring. Listen up by clicking the arrow to the right:

1. Woolgathering - Vandaveer
Sweet and simple from local heroes Vandaveer, with a charming video to boot.

2. Sir Duke - Stevie Wonder
Even trapped on a desert island, sometimes you just need to "feel it all over."

3. Yea Yeah - Matt and Kim
This cheerful, high energy pick-me-up would come in handy the day we realized we're trapped on a desert island. In retrospect, all the wasted food in the video might get a bit wearing after our food supply ran out.

4. A Well Respected Man - The Kinks
Admittedly, this song was chosen because Complicated Life wasn't available and we couldn't go the rest of our lives without hearing another Kinks song.

5. Energy - The Apples in Stereo
Another uplifting song to help us forget we're stranded on a desert island.

6. Redemption Song - Bob Marley
We would probably replace this classic with another Marley tune if we really were abandoned on the island by actual pirates after they robbed us. No need to relive that event daily.

7. This Too Shall Pass - OK Go
Good advice on the island or back on the mainland.

8. Knockin' On Heavens Door - Bob Dylan
Hopefully this beautiful .

9. Everything Touches Everything - These United States
For Joe, who wants to write more thank you notes this year.

10. Once In A Lifetime - Talking Heads
To remind us of a time when we weren't stranded on a desert island.

11. Big Indian - The Dandy Warhols
Dandys rule, OK?

12. Rain - The Beatles
In the hopes The Beatles could inspire Mother Nature to make the desert island less deserty, or at least provide some drinking water.
