Newfoundland's Hey Rosetta! makes Nelson's Your Playlist for the week.

Nelson’s Playlist

This is your playlist. We want to know what song you just can’t get out of your head this week.

Silent Shout by The Knife

The Knife is a Swedish electronic music duo who have gained a major following around the world. Silent Shout appeared on an album by the same name that was named best album of 2006 by Pitchfork. It’s a great song for a rainy day… like the ones we’ve had in abundance lately.

Fat Bottom Girls by Queen covered by Phillip Phillips

This Queen classic was recently covered by American Idol winner Phillip Phillips (yep, this kid apparently had cruel parents). While it’s hard to digest American Idol with poor ol’ washed up Steven Tyler and J. Lo, this was a pretty fantastic rendition worth youtubing.

Lungs by Steve Earle

It’s off of the 2009 Townes album which was a tribute to Townes Van Zandt. Earle rocks this one in a way Townes probably never imagined. It was a thrill to see Steve Earle in the flesh last week at the Capitol.

Keeper of the Key by Morning Bell

This is one of those get-your-special-someone-and-hold-em-tight songs. Light some candles, pour some wine and slow dance in the sun… OK well not sun, but you can imagine.

Zombie Delight by Buck 65

With all this talk of human remains and cannibalism in the news lately it’s not hard to let your imagination get carried away. Are there really zombies? One thing is for certain, you can never be too prepared and this is a must on any zombie apocalypse website.

Young Glass by Hey Rosetta!

Inspired by JD Salinger’s Franny and Zooey this is Hey Rosetta!’s letter to the youngest of the Glasses. It’s filled with beautiful lyrics, strings, guitars and more. Hopefully we’ll see these guys in Nelson soon…please.

Hot Cookin’ by G. Love

Here’s the recipe for a great song: Simple lyrics, guitar, organ, harmonica and drums. That’s pretty much what you have in G. Love’s Hot Cookin’. While it might be nice to think he’s talking about making a nice pot roast, I think he’s talking about something hot and steamy in another way.

Time to go Home by Michael Franti and Spearhead

Disclaimer: This is an anti-war song. If you’re not into that, I wouldn’t put this on the playlist. But if you could be convinced to do otherwise know this: Michael Franti is a legend who writes beautiful lyrics and combined with basic reggae beats, this is a great song.

This is your playlist. We want to know what song you just can’t get out of your head this week. Is it a new song? Or maybe a classic that you think is due for a comeback? Email your song to vurb@nelsonstar.com. You can also post your songs on our Facebook page or share a video on our Twitter.
