music on monday: ramblin’ man

Cycling etiquette: When you are biking around town and you hear the first chords of a song you like coming from the car in front of you before they change the station to something they inexplicably prefer, it is not acceptable to shout, “No! Turn it back! I was listening to that!”

Because I only got two stanzas’ worth of the song on my ride in this morning, I offer the Allman Brothers’ “Ramblin’ Man” to you here:

Also, I wanted to alert everyone that The Green Album, a new take by modern bands on Muppets classics comes out tomorrow. Some of the songs are straight-up homages, while others are re-interpretations. I’d tell you which songs I like, but I fear it pretty much would look like the track list. That said, “Moving Right Along” (covered by Alkaline Trio), “Rainbow Connection” (Weezer and Hayley Williams), the “Muppet Show Theme” (OK Go), and “I’m Going to Go back There Someday” (Rachael Yamagata) are particular standouts for me after my first week of listening.

You can stream the album this week for free, but they leave the artists off their listings, so you’ll want to head here to see who’s singing. I recommend you give it a listen (every day if you’re like me) and then add the album to your collection in whatever format you acquire new music these days.

@amanda: Agreed! I couldn’t understand why they wanted to change the station!
