Playlist for the Unpopular Music webcast for January 31, 2015

Well this is pretty much the show I had planned for last week, with a few of the more arbitrary choices replaced. Although instead of previewing the Bad Plus plays Science Fiction concert, I'll be reminiscing about it.

Also, while remaining "unpopular" there are appearances by Elvis Presley, Bruce Springsteen, and the Beatles.
