Tracks 6, 7
"Behind With The Rent" .. "True Love Will Never Fade" - Mark Knopfler

These two songs are taken from Kill to Get Crimson, the fifth solo studio album by guitarist Mark Knopfler, released on September 17, 2007 by Mercury Records internationally, and by Warner Bros. Records in the United States. The album's title comes from a line in the song "Let It All Go" (the 8th track on the album). The cover image is taken from the painting Four Lambrettas and Three Portraits of Janet Churchman by John Bratby, painted in 1958. The first singles from the album were "True Love Will Never Fade" in Europe, and "Punish The Monkey" (ML #506) in North America. The album debuted at number 26 on the US Billboard 200 chart, selling about 23,000 copies in its first week. Knopfler supported the release of Kill to Get Crimson with the Kill to Get Crimson Tour of Europe and North America, which started on March 29, 2008 in Amsterdam, and included 94 concerts in 88 cities, ending on July 31, 2008 in Miami Beach, Florida. The tour lineup included Mark Knopfler (guitars, vocals), Richard Bennett (guitars), Danny Cummings (drums), Guy Fletcher (keyboards), Matt Rollings (keyboards), Glenn Worf (bass), and John McCusker (fiddle, cittern). The tour included a six-night run at the Royal Albert Hall in London, with Bap Kennedy as the supporting act. Jesca Hoop was the opening act for the North America leg of the tour. A total of six tracks from the album have placed on my Music Library.

 

"Kill to Get Crimson"

Track 10
"Kingdom" - Dave Gahan

"Kingdom" is a song performed by Depeche Mode's singer Dave Gahan. The song was written and produced by Gahan, Andrew Phillpott, and Christian Eigner for Gahan's second solo album Hourglass (2007). The song was released as the album's first single in October 2007. The single version removed the third stanza of the first verse, the instrumental part preceding the second chorus, and most of the bridge at the end. The song received increasing airplay on US alternative rock radio throughout the month of September 2007 and became one of the 100-most-played modern rock songs in the US in mid-September. In the UK, a week after release on CD, the single only reached a chart peak of #44, meaning that it charted lower than any of Dave's CD-format singles from his first album, Paper Monsters. More success was achieved in mainland Europe, however, with the song reaching the Top 10 in Germany and Italy, and the top of the chart in Spain. The song was also featured in the episode "The Ringer" of the CBS show Moonlight, which first aired on November 10, 2007, and was also included in the soundtrack album for the 2008 movie Lost Boys: The Tribe. The album Houglass peaked at No. 50 on the UK charts, but stalled at No. 120 on the Billboard 200 Album chart, however, it hit No. 1 on Billboard's Electronic chart. All tracks from the album appeared on my Music Library.

Track 13
"Do It Again" - The Chemical Brothers

"Do It Again" is a song by the British electronic music duo The Chemical Brothers and is the fifth track on their 2007 studio album We Are the Night. The song also featured Ali Love, and was released as the first single from that album in early June 2007. It reached its highest chart position in Italy, where it hit #2. It also made it into the UK Singles Chart, where it peaked at #12. It was released as a digital download on the iTunes Store on May 15, 2007. The music video for the song was directed by Michael Haussman and was set in rural Morocco. The song was nominated at the 50th Grammy Awards for "Best Dance Recording" but lost out to Justin Timberlake's "LoveStoned / I Think That She Knows". The song was used in Paco Rabanne's "One Million" video advertisement. The album We Are The Night, entered the UK Albums Chart at number 1 and debuted at number 65 on the Billboard 200. It was certified gold by the British Phonographic Industry. The album won a Grammy Award for Best Electronic/Dance Album at the 50th Grammy Awards. The album cover art was inspired by the work Things to Come by Bauhaus member Herbert Bayer. The opening track, "No Path to Follow", is an intro track used for the title track which follows the song on the album. As with all other albums by The Chemical Brothers, some of the tracks segue into the next. These are 5 into 6, 8 into 9, 9 into 10, and finally 10 into 11.
