An In-Snide Look #214: Playlist Tuesday -- Darrin's Guilty Pleasures

Tuesday playlist time:

Okay, I've been putting this one off for a while, but I guess after years of making people fess up theirs, I ought to come clean and throw out a few of mine. Yes ... hidden under the seat of my car ... buried in the depths of my golf bag next to my porn videos ... there are those CD's that I don't want to admit that I love -- the musical equivalent of eating peanut butter out of the jar ... with my fingers ... in the back of my closet ... even though I live alone.

Probably some surprises in here, along with plenty of kitch, and lots of fun. Yes, these are a few of my less-mainstream favorite performers, and while I'm not ashamed to admit it, or stick up for these choices, they do often create something of a stigma when people first learn that you're a fan. Therefore, they remain at least semi-closeted, until it becomes abundantly clear that I'm just a big music geek who listens to anything, and loves just about everything.

Darrin's "Guilty Pleasures" Playlist:

Soul Food to Go (Sina) -- Manhattan Transfer

There She Goes -- The La's

Amazing Flight -- Ayreon

This Town Ain't Big Enough for the Both of Us -- Sparks

How Soon is Now -- The Smiths

Everybody Wants to Rule the World -- Tears for Fears

Really Want to Know You -- Gary Wright

Time -- Alan Parson Project

Why Can't This Night Go On Forever -- Journey

99 Red Balloons -- Goldfinger

Moments of Pleasure -- Kate Bush

The Friends of Mr. Cairo -- Jon and Vangelis

West End Girls -- Pet Shop Boys

Are Friends Electric -- Gary Numan

All Woman -- Lisa Stansfield

Slow -- Rumer

Don't Let Me Down -- The Hollies

Night Owls -- Little River Band

Solicitations and Submissions

Solicitations for blog posts can be made by sending and email to "blog -at- indyintune -dot- com" and should follow these guidelines:

  • Local (Indianapolis-based) acts always have priority.
  • Visisting acts playing a bill with one or more local acts are also considered.
  • We generally don't like to repeat content found on other sites. If your request already has a lot of coverage on other sites, it will be considered low-priority unless you can give us an exclusive angle.
  • For obvious reasons, we don't do solicited album reviews, though we do appreciate you letting us know when you have a new release. Consider coming in and talking about the album yourself live on the air or a podcast.
  • All of our staff writers are unpaid enthusiasts. All requests for blog posts are entirely at their descretion.
  • As such, they generally need a lot of lead-time to put something out -- we're talking weeks of lead time, not hours.
  • That said, individual authors have full authority to ignore the following guidelines and write whatever they want ... if you can convince them to.
  • In addition, feel free to write your own post and submit it for posting as a "guest blogger." Those almost always get accepted.
  • Finally, regional or national acts submitting without meeting the above guidelines are generally ignored. We're not trying to be dicks, but if you send us a generic form-letter with your press release, and it doesn't even remotely concern a local artist or event, then you're not part of our core focus.
