Thanks to Jim Adams, for hosting Song Lyric Sunday. I’ve had a craptacular week at the Casa, but we all have problems, right?! I roused Sven but he went back in his house. I’ll get a post with the pictures out soon, or soon-ish. Now on to the Music!
The prompt this week – Underrated Deep Album Cuts
I haven’t bought ANY music in so long, this was a difficult one for me. Then I remembered a CD I used to listen to often, Sleep Through The Static, by Jack Johnson, and my favorite song from that CD. Personally, I think the entire album is great but my favorite song is Monsoon.
Wiki tells us Sleep Through the Static is the fourth studio album by singer-songwriter Jack Johnson, released in the United States on February 5, 2008
The first single, “If I Had Eyes“, was released via Johnson’s MySpace page on December 11, 2007. The second single from the album was “Hope” and was released in September, peaking at number No. 30 on the Billboard Modern Rock Tracks.
The album debuted at number one on the US Billboard 200 chart, selling about 375,000 copies in its first week, including 139,000 digital downloads. This was a record high for weekly digital album sales. It also debuted at number one on the Worldwide chart with sales of 577,000. It held the record at iTunes for most digital downloads in a single day, until Coldplay’s Viva la Vida or Death and All His Friends set a new record.
Sleep Through the Static remained at number one on the Billboard 200 in its second week of release, by which time it had sold over 180,000 copies, as well as its third week, in which it sold 105,000 copies. It fell from the number one spot in its fourth week, in which it placed third with about 92,000 copies sold.
