My Life in Music – Woodrow Gerber
In the latest in our series ‘My Life In Music’ we ask US singing sensation Woodrow Gerber to share his life in music. Woodrow himself is in the studio at the moment, so no doubt we will hear more from him, but in the meantime, lets see his picks.
Woodrow Gerber was born on 8th February 1982, as he is from the US, we thought we would give him the special treatment. As you all know we name the number one song on the day our stars were born on. With Woodrow, we will give the UK and the US number one.
Number One on the day I was born (UK)
The Model /Computer Love by Kraftwerk
Number One on the day I was born (USA)
Centerfold by J. Geils Band
Favourite ever song
Mad World (Gary Jules version)
I feel like this is the song that provides majority of the soundtrack to my life. I’ve never heard a song that hijacks my mind whenever I hear it like this one does. Amazing lyrics, but the way Gary Jules sings it is so incredibly… real.
Flagpole Sitta by Harvey Danger
Something about the intro to this song right before the beat drops, the big buildup Dave Grohl does mixed with Kirk Cobain‘s guitar, I would stop whatever I was doing to hear this song. Had no idea what Kirk was saying, but you could tell it meant something…. something about a mosquito. I also remember seeing the album cover at my friends house and asking him why there was a naked baby in a pool… swimming after money. I also liked the Weird Al version slightly more than the original lol.
