The last ten songs I listened to:

  1. Country Current Bluegrass Quartet, "Heart of Caroline" (free download!)
  2. L7, "Pretend That We're Dead"
  3. David Bowie, "Young Americans"
  4. Sainte Chapelle, "At the Mercy of the Queen" (free download!)
  5. Bonnie McKee, "Trouble"
  6. Flickerstick, "Teenage Dope Fiend"
  7. Buzzcocks, "Why Can't I Touch It"
  8. No Second Troy, "Hedge" (free download!)
  9. Swing Out Sister, "Waiting Game"
  10. Jonathan Edwards and the Seldom Scene, "How Long Have I Been Waiting for You"

Country Current is a country band composed entirely of active-duty members of the United States Navy. Really. And even more surprisingly, they're actually really good. The lead singer (and the composer of "Heart of Caroline"), Master Chief Musician Wayne C. Taylor, was even nominated as Best Male Vocalist by the International Bluegrass Association.

The U.S. Air Force also has a country band, Silver Wings, but they're lousy. Well, maybe that's too strong. Silver Wings performs what you might call contemporary country, which I don't particularly care for. But if you're into that sort of thing, I'm sure you'd find them perfectly acceptable.
