Former frontman of Public Access TV curates a list of his favourite tracks.
In the new music video for John Eatherly’s upbeat “Burnout”, model daughter of Cindy Crawford Kaia Gerber plays a stalker-turned-girlfriend. A waster of of a literary rock’n’roll star who spends his days getting blackout in a floral dressing gown and burning passages of his writing on drunken whims catches the eye of enthusiastic superfan Gerber. She then goes all Misery on him Kathy Bates-style and drugs him, with former frontman of Public Access TV Eatherly making a small cameo as the novelist’s chauffeur.
We caught up with Eatherley following his new solo status, and he curates us a playlist of his fave tracks…
Steve Monite – “Only You”
I’m maybe late to this song. I heard it on a Blonded Radio episode. I’ve listened to it 1000 times since! It’s truly soundtracking my summer and I can’t get enough of it.
Air – “Ce Matin-Là”
I love how this song feels like a really good soundtrack. Makes me only wanna make instrumentals. Air is one my favourite bands ever. This song most definitely comes on when you walk through the pearly gates.
KC & The Sunshine Band – “Please Don’t Go”
This song Is so repetitive yet never gets old. So simple and so damn good. Also had no idea what they looked like until searching them just now. Wow.
Leon Russell – “A Song For You”
This blew my mind. I always overlooked and never got down with him but now I am. The lyrics are genius. Sets the bar high for easy and simple yet heartfelt and clever.
Ariel Pink – “Another Weekend”
My friend Johan DJ’d this song on the drive back to the city after the “Burnout” video shoot. I related to it so much. It’s crazy when a song is so dead on.
Stanley Myers – “Cavatina” (Theme from The Deer Hunter)
Most beautiful and sad melody I’ve ever heard. It truly hits the heart this one. It’s one of my favourite songs of all time.
