The Shadow- July 1st

The original artist is a new-wave band out of West Sussex, England and they have been doing their thing for nearly 40 years now. This hit from the summer of ’92 is one that when you hear it, make a “wish”. The song is more or less about the days of the week.

The Shadow artist is a big fan of certain days of the week, particularly Thursday, because this Thursday they are appearing at WTMD’s First Thursday concert in Canton. And despite the lyrics, on Thursday, they care about you.

The Shadow- June 30th


The original artist had a hit with this song in the Summer of ’79. It’s a band that sieges the underground and a song that asks a question about acquaintances and their conductivity. The Shadow artist is a thunderous and rainy side project of Jack White. Tweet

The Shadow- June 29th


The original artist was a group out of LA that sort of formed after their singer got fired from The Mothers Of Invention by Frank Zappa, or so the story goes. And this song today is one of the reasons, a 1972 ode about smuggling. The singer passed away on this day in 1979 at…

The Shadow- June 23rd


The original artist defines “one-hit-wonder” exceptionally well. They were a British band, not Italian- except when they were in Italy’s capital. These New Orderesque synth-poppers released one album in 1988 with this hit on it. The Shadow artist has been defining himself with his new album, Metamodern Sounds in Country Music. This Kentucky native likes…

The Shadow- June 22nd


The original artist turns 67 today and he don’t want to work, he just wants to play this song for the Shadow today. But the song today is not about banging drums, but the epiphanous nature of your bright eyes. The Shadow artist takes their name from a bilingual baseball field. It translates to “I’ve…
