This week it's time to set sail to a smooth, smooth soundtrack of the much maligned yacht rock genre; much maligned but unfairly so if you ask me. While the sound's heyday was the 70s, it has influenced and generated similar music all through the decades since. The soulful synthpop of the 80s, the souljazz of the 90s, and many contemporary artists have dabbled with songs that could have ridden the high seas of the yacht rock during its prime. So, don your deck shoes, make sure your crew includes a mixologist, stock your bar and set sail with some smooth sounds.

What a week it has been. What a month, what a year, a decade, a century in fact. It's like the world is falling apart around us and no one really has a clue of how to put it back together. Unless you were hiding under a rock lately then you, like everyone, have been inundated with the news, all of it bad. Much of it horrible. Killings, racism, phobias, terrorism, beheadings, culture clashes, not to mention a US presidential election. I don't mean to be a Donny downer but life sort of sucks right now. And relative to many, I have it pretty good day to day. It finally got to me when I discovered myself listening to more and more depressing music. Which naturally bleeds over into the modcast. Art imitates life after all. So, here it is in all it's depressing, apocalyptic glory. A collection of songs that are either a sign of the times or a reflection of the end of times.

The sun is out, the music's hot, and surprisingly so is my cocktail. I've mixed up some great tracks to get us going for the summer season. It's a bit of an eclectic mix, but that's what makes it so interesting. From new to old, from classic to contemporary, there's a little something here for everyone. Perfect for catching some rays.

It's time to kick off year eleven of Mr. Suave's Mod Mod World. That's right ten years in the bag and now looking towards another ten trips around the sun. In accordance with the grand and illustrious history of the show I'm sticking with the tried and true format of introducing you to some new tunes, all the while paying tribute to the greats of the past 50+ years. So, it should come as no surprise then that this modcast has everything from soul to indie pop, from power pop to R&B and even some soulful synthpop. Bring it on!

Mr. Suave's Mod Mod World 10th Anniversary Special That's right, this week on the modcast we'll be celebrating 10 years of Mr. Suave's Mod Mod World. Hard to believe it's been that long: so many shows, so many songs, so many good memories. To celebrate I've challenged longtime guest modcaster, DJ Ken from The Shingles to a head to head match up of his songs vs. mine. We each picked one year from each decade since the sixties. Next we each secretly selected two songs from that year to battle it out head to head. Then one of us reveals his two picks and the other picks which of those two songs he thinks one of his songs is better than, and it's on. Ten years, ten songs, and ultimately you're the judge. Vote for which songs think should win out. Vote who you think had the better selections overall. You can vote in the comments below, or bounce over to the show's Facebook page and mix it up there.

Round and round we go, and where we'll stop: Diamonds! We're celebrating Mr. Suave's Mod Mod World and its ten spins around the sun. Welcome to the second part of this momentous, multipart occasion. Last week, The Bangles left us dangling with "7 & 7 is." "Is It In My Head?" or is our next destination obvious? No self-respecting Suave celebration would be complete without acknowledging The Who and Quadrophenia. So mix up a Ms. Smith, turn the speakers up to ten, and unbuckle yourself as we wind our way to diamonds. Happy Anniversary, Mr. Suave! --Mary, Queen of Cosmos For a complete track list, the recipe for this week's northern soulshaker cocktail, and bonus videos be sure to visit the modcast homepage at www.mistersuave.com.

And they said it wouldn't last! In 2006, as an early birthday surprise, Mrs. Suave gifted her Mister with an iPod, and Modcasting history was made. Now, a decade later, we raise frosty cocktails (make mine a double!) to toast ten groovin' and glorious years of Mister Suave's Mod Mod World. The Small Faces get us marching with "Tin Soldier." With this mod-nod to the past, we launch into a musical maze of word-play. The challenge: to get from Tin (traditional ten-year anniversary gift) to Diamonds (the modern ten-year offering), leap-frogging across a celebratory retrospective of Suave-friendly songs along the way. In this manner, we go from "Tin Soldier," to "Tin Soldier Man," to "A Man is a Man," to "Man at the C & A," and on and on to Diamonds. If you're inclined to Choose Your Own Adventure, forge your own path from Tin to Diamonds and let us know how your journey goes. I'd love to hear your list. --Mary, Queen of Cosmos.
