New Little Steven 'Coolest Songs' Collection Brings Good Luck

Little Steven ''Coolest Songs''- for the Grateful Web

On November 25, Wicked Cool Records released the latest installment of Steven Van Zandt's irresistibly eclectic collection of rock music, 'Little Steven's Underground Garage Presents the Coolest Songs in the World Vol. 7,' this time featuring songs by Elvis Costello and The Imposters, Flogging Molly, John Fogerty, Kaiser Chiefs and R.E.M.

"You can try having a party without this album blasting your bad luck into oblivion," cautions Van Zandt"but I wouldn't recommend it." As he did for the previous volumes in the 'Coolest Songs in the World' series, Little Steven studiously scoured the world for the best music, picking tracks that give this new compilation "a little bit of everything that's cool." 

Here's what Little Steven has to say about 'Coolest Songs in the World Vol. 7':

"We start with Swedish Surf Rock (Hawaii Mud Bombers) and Mother Truck ("Streets of Atlanta") right through R.E.M.'s neighborhood ("All The Right Friends") all the way to a "Shady Grove" (Mudcrutch) where we get the singular pleasure of Flogging Molly ("Requiem For A Dying Song"). We've got the Dead But Never Better (Rocket From The Crypt) and Born Again But Never Nastier (The Doughboys) and you want born again? We've got nothing less than "Mother Mary" herself (Foxboro Hot Tubs) and she brought along her own Catholic Girls ("Rock'n America"), we've got Guys (Big Midnight), "Dolls" (Primal Scream), "Gangsters" (Elvis Costello), Pigeons ("I Found Out"), a "Riot" goin' on (Kaiser Chiefs) and a "Longshot" you'd bet on every time (John Fogerty)."
