7 a.m. Joe Grice
- "My Love," by The Bird and The Bee
- "The Fear," by Lily Allen
- "Boom," by Anjulie
9 a.m. Erik Dudziak
I'm not sure if Back Door Slam has ever played at Bonnaroo, but they should. I saw them at Artscape and have been a fan ever since. Both Ben Harper and Band of Horses are rocking out at Bonnaroo this year, and although I have never seen either live I really want to.
- "Come Home," by Back Door Slam
- "Shimmer and Shine," by Ben Harper & The Relentless 7
- "Marry Song," by Band of Horses
11 a.m. Trish Smith
- "Ooh, La, La," by The Faces
This is my favorite song ever because it's not only from my favorite movie (Rushmore), but because it also reveals life lessons.
- "El Scorcho," by Weezer
This was the first Weezer song I ever listened to, and since I'm half Korean (not half Japanese), I feel a connection to it.
- "Coffee & TV," by Blur
This is a great song with an even better music video. Who doesn't like coffee or tv?!
- "In Between Days," by The Cure
My favorite Cure song. It's beautiful.
- "Bittersweet Symphony," by The Verve
"You're a slave to money then you die." What sums up life better than this?
1 p.m. David Paremske
All of these songs are groovy.
- "Helicopters," by Disco Biscuits
- "Maze," by Phish
- "Toe Jam," by BPA
- "Sabotage," by Beastie Boys
5 p.m. Dan Anderson
I think song #1 is great and it just shows how awesome WTMD is - where else would you hear a song like this? Thanks for introducing it to me! I think his voice sounds a little like Dracula's voice and that makes me think of the Dracula song in Forgetting Sarah Marshall (song #2). It's a short funny song, but it's actually pretty good. Then that song makes me think of the line "Send me all your vampires" in song #3. And of course that then makes me think of Vampire Weekend. Did you follow all of that?
- "Epilepsy is Dancing," by Antony and the Johnsons

- "Cape Cod Kwassa Kwassa," by Vampire Weekend
6 p.m. Maria Shaivitz
I picked these because they are songs that I never get tired of hearing. Thanks WTMD for all the great music you play!
- "Electric Feel," by MGMT
- "Stop the Bus," by Grace Potter and the Nocturnals
- "Valerie Plame," by The Decemberists
- "Theologians," by Wilco
- "Heretics," by Andrew Bird

Forgive the blurry image to the left, but it pre-dates digital cameras.
1987 Joshua Tree Tour. Rainy RFK Stadium (Bono would later dislocate his arm after an onstage wipe out). Hours hanging out with friends blasting U2 bootlegs and, you know, doing what people do before shows. I'm the guy in green, fourth from the left.
Relive some U2 memories this Friday and make some new ones, hopefully at Fed Ex Field September 29th when U2 hit DC for the 360 Tour!
Join me and other TMD types from 10am to 1pm at Slainte Irish Pub (1700 Thames St in Fells Point) where we'll test your U2 trivia knowledge and give away U2 cd's, memorabilia and, most importantly, a pair of tickets to the sold out Fed Ex Field show!
We'll be broadcasting live from down there, so come on down! We'll see if you've got what it takes to be U2's number one fan in Baltimore!
Since we've got kind of a bootleg vibe to this post, what with the grainy photo and all, here's another RFK memory (you bet I was there for the ZOO TV Tour too!). Bono's getting down with a local to one of my favorite, underrated U2 tracks. See ya Friday.
Kiefer Sutherland signed them to his label Ironworks and stars in this Old Western-looking video for "Little Toy Gun."
