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)."

'Coolest Songs in the World Vol. 7' Track List:

1. "Dolls" - PRIMAL SCREAM
2. "All The Right Friends" - R.E.M.
3. "Black Sheep" - THE DOUGHBOYS
4. "Mother Mary" - FOXBORO HOT TUBS
5. "Doin' All Right" - BIG MIDNIGHT
6. "Longshot" - JOHN FOGERTY
7. "I Predict A Riot" - KAISER CHIEFS
8. "Johanna Beach" - HAWAII MUD BOMBERS
9. "American Gangster Time" - ELVIS COSTELLO AND THE IMPOSTERS
10. "I Found Out" - THE PIGEON DETECTIVES
11. "Heart Of A Rat" - ROCKET FROM THE CRYPT
12. "Rock'n America" - THE CATHOLIC GIRLS
13. "Streets Of Atlanta" - THE MOTHER TRUCKERS
14. "Requiem For A Dying Song" - FLOGGING MOLLY 
15. "Shady Grove" - MUDCRUTCH

And while 'Coolest Songs in the World Vol. 7' is out just in time to be the soundtrack to your most rockin' Thanksgiving yet, Steven's also making sure that you'll be rockin' around the Christmas tree, too: his rarities-packed 'Little Steven's Underground Garage Presents Christmas A Go-Go' is out now (also from Wicked Cool Records), featuring the coolest from Keith Richards (available for the FIRST time on CD), The Kinks, The Ramones, Bob Seger, the Brian Setzer Orchestra, Darlene Love, and even Joe Pesci.
