    I am listening to The Dan Patrick Show.

    "Terra Aria" by the contemporary Italian cellist, Giovanni Sollima.

    A composition conceived for 6 or 12 cellos (I think), and feels like it's part of the same minimalist movement in contemporary classical music as with Philip Glass or Michael Nyman. The track is played over excerpts from a video by Gregory Colbert, which is part of some project called "Ashes and Snow".

    "Cordelia" by The Tragically Hip. Track #3 from their LP Road Apples (1991). One of my favourite Hip songs.



    Angst on the planks, spittin' from a bridge
    Just to see how far down it really is
    Robbing a bank, jumping from a train
    Old antiques a man alone can entertain

    It takes all your power
    To prove that you don't care
    I'm not Cordelia, I will not be there

    Tin can man, dragging from a car
    Just to see how alive you really are
    Marrying words, falling in your wake
    Just to tell what you can't eliminate

    Treading the boards, screaming out Macbeth
    Just to see how much bad luck you really get
    Jump in the ring with your hidden cape
    The bull can't decide what it is that he really hates

    Angst on the planks, spittin' from a bridge
    Just to see how far down it really is
    Robbing a bank, jumping on a train
    Old antiques a man alone can entertain

    Thief lingers on, on his hands and knees
    Must be one more thing here I really need
    Die in your dreams, falling on your knife
    A thief blinded on the job, has to steal for life

    "John the Revelator", a fantastic pre-war traditional blues/gospel song. Three versions.

    This is the earliest, original recording by Blind Willie Johnson.


    Second performance is an a cappella variation by Son House - the version that I first came across and remains my favourite.


    Last is the song by Depeche Mode - it's not really a cover of the original nor a variation of it, lyrics-wise, but a significantly different song that nevertheless keeps the song title, the original rhythm, and even some of the original apocalyptic sensibility.
