Waltz #2

It's a wonderful morning in the neighborhood, with hangovers abounding. However, with a 70 Degree November day shining in my window, I am compelled to write and share. How... wonderful?

Snow in Michigan by Christopher Sullivan - Might as well be a theme song for the season right now. I wish this guy made new music.

Walk Away by Ben Harper - How very depressing, in a way that Ben Harper's light voice could only render.

Hey, Hey by Dispatch - Say what you will about them. This song is fucking amazing. The harmony gets me every time, and the lyrics are, dare I say, perfect. They put across their self-loathing and longing for "her" oh so very well.

I Don't Feel Like Dancing by Scissor Sisters - How ironic, I really want to get up and groove to a song with a chorus that laments about not dancing.

It's a Wonderful Life by Bandits of the Acoustic Revolution - Because it is.

Theme from Symphony no. 6 by Takeshi Terauchi and the Bunnys - Japanese 60's punk covers classical music. Fucking right.

The Fools We Are as Men by Ryan Adams - Because... We are.

Waltz #1

Hm. Back again? Does anyone know? Do people still read the interweb?

Songs on my mind at during a dreary day in November, which is on it's way out.

Go Out and Get It by John & Beverley Martyn - Reminds me of driving around aimlessly, but in a good way, during the summer.

She Smiled Sweetly by The Rolling Stones - Nice and depressing. Maybe because I associate it with The Royal Tenenbaums.

Sugarman by Rodriquez - I LOVE this guy. He deserves a helluva lot of fame. But he didn't get any. Atleast, not in the US. Wonderful ode to drug dealer and using them.

Glorious by Muse - Evidently a bonus track off Black Holes and Revelations.

Rainbows in the Dark by Tilly and the Wall - Opening track from their release this year.

Ladies and Gentleman by Spiritualized
- Beauty, in song form.

"All I want in life's a little bit of love to take the pain away
Getting strong today
A giant step each day

And I will love you till I die
And I will love you all the time"
