Song of the Day: "I Wonder If I Take You Home"

Meshell Ndegeocello (nee Michelle Johnson) has an interesting body of work: in many ways it defies easy characterization; in other ways it's good, not great. Her biggest hit was a great cover with John Mellencamp (wisely they picked no one's favorite Van Morrison song and came up with a great version together).

Her new album Ventriloquism is a set of R&B/soul covers from the 80s and 90s. The list is interesting, the end result less so.

I suppose I should give her an A for effort, but "Don't Disturb This Groove" should have made for an easy cover.

Song of the Day: "Hell or High Water"

Passenger makes lovely music even if I get overly confusing when I write about it. You've been warned.
