Five Songs I'm Loving This Week

Bouncing Souls, "Undeniable." Cool song.

Aerovox, "Don't Fade Out." Nice song. A little emo-y. Just a little. The beginning sounds like a Who song, which is cool.

Adam Banton, " Mother's Day." Pretty instrumental song.

Amestory, "#2." Nice song.

And finally,

Satan's Cheerleader's, " Satan." I have been looking for this song for fourteen years. This is not the version I was looking for, and frankly this version is crap. They make the song sound like some tinny novelty version recorded in a phone booth. But it's still the song I've been looking for forever. Pretend it's recorded well. It's really a great song. I plan to buy the 1969 movie it's from--Satan's Sadists--with the original version.

Corrina Repp "Finally." I love this song. I want to take this song wherever I go. This song will request a restraining order on me, but I won't care.

Reclinerland " As Paranoid As I Am." In other words, I need someone who obsessively goes back three times to make sure the stove really is off before going to work. Then checks again to make sure the radiator is off.


Asobi Suksu" Walk on the Moon" video. In addition, here's the mp3.

Morrissey" I Have Forgiven Jesus." Okay, just point me in the right direction so I can jump.

The Postal Service "Against All Odds." Secret: I loved this song when I was kid; still do. Secret: I never saw Wicker Park and don't care to. Secret: I really like this version! I love The Postal Service, but was kinda like "uhhhh...." when I saw this video on IFilm. But, okay, here it is.

As a bonus, I didn't know The Shins had a video for "New Slang.". I'd seen the videos for Know Your Onion!, The Past & The Pending and So Says I, but I'd never seen one for my favorite Shins song. I just happened to find this. Cool, huh?

Andrew Bird, "
Tables & Chairs." His voice reminds me of Nick Drake. I coldn't find an mp3, so I linked to the Amazon site. I also like the song "Measuring Cups."

Reuben's Accomplice, "
All Chorus." I love this song. I couldn't find an mp3, but it's streamed here.

Seedy Gonzalez, "
Love's Theosophy." If anyone's ever heard the great Nails song "88 Lines for 44 Woman," this song reminds me so much of that--and the singer sounds remarkably like the singer of the Nails. Maybe they're the same...I mean, sure the 88 Lines song came out in the 80's, but who knows...

Subtract By Two, "
Transgression Suite." It's a pretty, pretty instrumental song. It makes me want to fall on a cloud, and stay there.

The Linger Effect, "
The Small Time." It's one of those lo-fi songs I like. Jangly. Click on "media" to access download.

I'm really liking this band called Wonderful Smith.
I just did a major update to the links on the right. I think I need to go back to bed now.

Motel Creeps, "
Moon Boots." I love this song; I love the other songs I've heard from them too, particularly another song called "Ocean Storm."

The Stills,, "
Lola Stars & Stripes. " Even the Canadian boys are writing songs about me.

The Elected, "
Greetings In Braille." One of those songs that I'll be listening to when I'm old. I'll bug the other nursing home residents until they've all listened to it.

Trespassers William, "
Lie In The Sound." Nice song! The singer sounds uncannily like Aimee Mann.

The Cloud Room, "
Hey Now Now." Hey, now, it's a cool song.

The Futureheads made a cover of Kate Bush's Hounds of Love.

I don't know what I think. I think I liked that cover of Running Up The Hill that some other band did better.

The dogs are cute.

He got the lyrics wrong; it's: "It's running for me through the trees." He said "It's running at me through the trees."

I know these lyrics better than I know my own address (seriously, I'm always screwing up my address.)
