    Thought this was a good question...

    Currently I'm leaning to something from Saint Etienne... Foxbase Alpha or Interlude... reflective and pretty...

    Hmm...I'd try-

    ~Kings of Convenience "Riot on an Empty Street" or "Quiet is the new Loud"
    ~Eastmountainsouth, self-titled
    ~Iron & Wine "Our Endless Numbered Days"
    ~Teitur "Poetry & Airplanes"
    ~Amos Lee, self-titled
    ~Chet Baker "The Best of Chet Baker Sings"

    That's what my iTunes "Good Afternoon" mix contains a lot of.

    ok, couldn't resist. Lionel Richie's (or Faith No More's cover) "Easy Like A Sunday Morning".

    but this afternoon, i may very well go for something by Lou Rawls circa his Blue Note years.

    It was an addendum to Angel Dust (a terrific album); too bad Mike's such an ahole, albeit a talented one.

    Excellent choices - that is to say, almost exactly as I would have it. As a kid, I always listened to the "Beatles Brunch" or whatever on the radio, so almost any Beatles album sounds at home on Sunday morning. Add for me any of the Verve remixed stuff, as well.

    Miles Davis Kind Of Blue . Â And I second the Beatles. Â If it's summer time you can't go wrong with Jimmy Buffett.

    Sorry, but I won't. I actually sort of used to be friends with him. koji

    FNM's cover of "Easy" was their biggest-selling single ever, if I'm remembering correctly.
    Did he mock your bowl-cut/double-breasted jacket/short pants combination? Â [​IMG] Seriously, you must dish some dirt. For Sundays, I like assorted Kinobe/Thievery Coropration/St. Germain/first Goldfrapp album kind of stuff, or some slow-tempo jazz, either authentic or remixed.

    FNM did a funny cover of "Spanish Eyes" and a terrific one of "War Pigs" (live). Mike's a super talented guy, but he gets his jollies off of mocking people 24/7; it's amusing at first but gets old quickly, and if you don't share in his mockery he gets really nasty. Did provide me with some funny-ass stories of when they toured with Metallica, though.
