Top 20 Songs on Acoustic Pie, March 2011

March 31, 2011

Happy Cesar Chavez Day!

Here are the Top 20 Songs for March 2011 as voted on by online listeners.  I was happy to see that John Gorka’s “Wisheries” squeaked in at number 20 as it is such a pretty song with the sweetest rhymes.  You can read the lyrics here.  That album also has the gorgeous WWII themed song “Let Them In”.  The origin of the lyrics is a little vague but they were in the possession of a nurse who served in the Philippines during the war.  Here’s a video of John performing “Let Them In” .

The storage space for the Acoustic Pie stream is *very* tight right now!  Be sure and vote for your favorites (and your not-so-favorites) to let me know which songs I should keep in the rotation (or not :)

Jason Mraz (no. 2) is the only San Diego artist to make the Top 20 this month but what a fine representative he is!   A beautiful voice and a beautiful wordsmith, too.

Thanks for reading and thanks for listening, everyone!

Top 20 Songs on Acoustic Pie, February 2011

March 2, 2011

The theme for this month, the second month of the year, is two’s.  Two of the artists are songwriters that I fell in love with at the Sisters Folk Festival which takes place every September in Sisters, Oregon:  Jonathan Byrd (at no. 1) and Ellis (no. 4 & 17).  A surprising number of artists appear twice in this month’s Top 20:  Bruce Cockburn (no. 2 & 15), Jackson Browne (no. 4 & 16) and Ellis (no. 5 & 17).  And there are three songwriting duos as well:  Abbie Gardner and Anthony da Costa (no. 6), Storyhill (no. 7) and Chasing June (no. 14).

Gregory Page, San Diego’s resident troubadour, represents our local songwriters at no. 10.

Thanks for voting and for listening to the Pie!
