This little light of mine

Wolf Parade – “Shine a Light” from Apologies to the Queen Mary (2005)
The Constantines – “Shine a Light” from Shine a Light (2003)
The Rolling Stones – “Shine a Light” from Exile on Main Street (1972)

Since I’ll be stuffed and computerless for the the rest of the week, it’s time to say thanks to Jordy–the power behind SWR–and to our loyal listeners? lookers? surfers? with three songs called “Shine a Light,” none of which are covers of each other.

Funny story: the last song played at Jordy’s wedding reception was the Stones’s “Shine a Light.” It was late, the lights were on, and the DJ had already packed up half the speakers. Perfect time for an soulful anthem. All of us left picked ourselves up off of our chairs and began dancing, drunk, tired. After a minute or so, just as it was starting to get emotional, the CD began skipping. We tried to dance for a few more seconds until the skips got too bad. The DJ shut it off, we threw up our hands and went home.

Not included: “Shine” by Collective Soul.

Buy Teen Wolf

  1. Nice post Glenn. I always hated that Collective Soul song. I am very thankful that you did not include it.
