Songs That Are Owning You Right Now, Pt. 2 - Page 3

post #101 of 1296
Right now I'm on an Alec Empire/Atari Teeange Riot kick. Empire's "The Ride" is the best music that John Carpenter never composed.

Also: Portishead's "Machine Gun".

"You Are My Sanity" by Tim Reynolds

I've been on an obsessive solo Beatle trip for about the last six months-
Wild Life-Paul McCartney: An almost Lennon parody; love the raw vocals. As rock n' roll as he gets
Country Dreamer-Paul McCartney: One of his most underrated songs & melodies!
Well, Well, Well-John Lennon-Pure punk!
Let It Roll-George Harrison
It's All Too Much-The Beatles: Most underrated song. I can't stop playing it!

Ever since I heard it in the Hellboy II trailer, I find myself listening to Mein Herz Brennt by Rammstein a LOT, particularly this live version: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WNcQ5VE1vWI That gorgeous violin intro is in a constant rotation in my head. I find myself humming it constantly.

I heard Foo Fighters cover of Baker Street for the first time today. I'm not sure what I think of it.
post #106 of 1296
I'm not a huge fan of Portishead's new album, but "Machine Gun" is a fucking amazing song.
post #107 of 1296
Since the EURO 2008 is about to kick off today, my neural system has been blasted in recent days by this.
Granted, it is actually a rather crappy song, but kill my cat if it doesn´t bring back awesome memories and it is pretty much bound to be the soundtrack of the summer. Again.

I really dig this version.
post #109 of 1296
"Viva la Vida" from Coldplay is really growing on me. Then again, I've always been a huge fan of the band, so anything they release puts a smile on my face.


*waits for thrown stones*

"Mercy" by Duffy. Actually, the whole album is great.
post #111 of 1296
I've kinda been diggin' on Neu! over at http://www.deezer.com/#music/result/neu!

I like the faster stuff, like "Hallogallo" and "Negativland" - they just lock onto a fucking groove and ride it.

Those stones won't be coming from me. I've loved it since I first saw that iTunes commercial.

Wow, a validation for Coldplay (other than myself) on the Chud boards? Shocked and delighted. Since we're going down this road, here is a link to a stream of the new album, and it sounds incredible:

http://www.iheartmusic.com/cc-common.../coldplay.html

My personal favs so far are "42" and "Strawberry Swing."
post #116 of 1296
I really dig "No One Knows" by Mark Ronson (featuring Domino). I only like cover songs if they add something new or highlight the best parts of the original and this one does just that.
post #117 of 1296
The Black Keys - "I'm Glad"

T. Rex - "Planet Queen (Acoustic Version)"
post #118 of 1296
"Hearts on Fire" by Cut Copy

"Constructive Summer" by The Hold Steady
"You Know What" by N.E.R.D
"To Fix The Gash In Your Head" by A Place to Bury Strangers
"Solute Your Solution" by the Raconteurs"
"Love Rears It's Ugly Head" by Living Colour

My friend just emailed this brief clip to me, and I just fell in love:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XijNVoDNKI8 I knew he had an album out, but I honestly hadn't heard him sing until about two minutes ago. Man, he can SING!
post #121 of 1296
I've been enjoying the 80s feel of "Facination Street" by The Cure. That's some nice music to drive on a late afternoon.
post #122 of 1296
Got out the early Neil Young cds last week. Been a while. "The Loner", "Everybody Knows This Is Nowhere", "Cowgirl In The Sand", "Down By The River", "Don't Let It Bring You Down", & "After The Gold Rush" are moving me right now.
post #123 of 1296
I watched Once for the first time yesterday and now I'm afraid I won't be able to listen to "Falling Slowly" in front of people. Ever. It owns me like Jordan owned the Knicks. Which is weird because it couldn't be further away from the music I usually listen to.
post #124 of 1296
"We'll Meet Again" by Johnny Cash

"Mosquito Song" by Queens of the Stone Age
post #125 of 1296
Just heard the Saul Williams cover of Sunday Bloody Sunday. I gots to get me that.
post #126 of 1296
Timex Social Club- Rumors. Holy shit it's so catchy.

That really is a fantastic song.
post #128 of 1296
Alice Cooper "You and Me" and "Only Women Bleed".

Hell, I'm listening to a lot of "The Alice Cooper Show". Good stuff, that I never really paid close attention to before.
post #129 of 1296
Quiet Riot's "Cum On Feel the Noize"

I've been playing Grand Theft Auto: Vice City, and God help me if I can turn away from VRock if this song's on. I have left my car idling in front of missions before to finish it.
post #130 of 1296
Winter White Hymnal and Blue Ridge Mountains by Fleet Foxes. Very nice, and a fine album.
post #131 of 1296
The woman in Dave Matthews "Grey Street" commits suicide right?

The National - Mistaken For Strangers

My damn friend saw them last night and got me back on them in a big way (they did three encores too!).

My buddy put that flick on on St. Patrick's day and I don't know whether it was the fact that I had been drinking all day or if I was in a really vulnerable emotional state but as soon as the two of them sat down at that piano and started playing that song for the first time I broke like a New Orleans levee. I had to leave the room, I couldn't watch the rest of it.

It's fair to say that song owns me.
post #134 of 1296
Well, while the booze probably didn't hurt, that scene is remarkably powerful considering its two people playing and singing. So yeah, that song owns a lot of people I should think.

For me, it's all about "Fake Empire" and "Start a War".

MGMT's "Time To Pretend" and "Kids" have also been getting a lot of play lately.

Needless to say, I can't fucking wait for Lollapalooza this year.

Well it's the beats that really get me going for the rest of the album but what's MGMT, my minds drawing a blank at the moment.
post #137 of 1296
MGMT's a kind of pop/electronica duo out of NYC. I'm not usually into that type of music, but they won me over. I hear they've been playing shows with Radiohead in the UK recently.

The weird-ass video for "Time To Pretend"

Love MGMT. My buddy burned me their CD, I have been listening to it a ton. He's pissed though because he can't afford Lollapalooza tickets, but I got em. They are also playing an "after-party" show at Double Door, the same day they play Lolla. Very small place, but great to see a band you really like at. No bad seats.

I also have been listening to "The Rip" by Portishead. Just a great track.

Maybe I'll see you at the palooza, RCA. I'll be the guy wandering around with a huge dopey grin and a head full of fung-...you know, love.

Ha! I'll be the guy with the Marlboro lights that smell like a skunk sat on em.

Listening to Dylan.

The 'John Wesley Harding' album is so great. A stripped down classic.
post #142 of 1296
Lisa Lavie "Angel"
post #143 of 1296
I listen to The Current (Minnesota Public Radio - the best radio station in the world if you are big ol' hipster like me) and they have been playing "45" by The Saturday Knights a lot lately. Love it.

Oh, and also the new Nada Surf is great, particularly "Weightless."
post #144 of 1296
Pretty much the entirety of Sloan's Parallel Play is PWNing right now.

Also, Requiem and Change from Killing Joke (off of Chaos For Breakfast) are my new favorite songs.
post #145 of 1296
Dastardly double posted.
post #146 of 1296
There is only so much badly played guitar indie rock I can take..

so as I mentioned in the abandoned Local H thread... I'm really enjoying Local H's new album. There is one song called Michelle that sound so much like Bleach-era Nirvanna, its kicking my ass.
post #147 of 1296
Ever since putting it on Parker's disc for the CD exchange, "The Electric Co" by U2 has been kicking my ass all over the place. The band may have matured and evolved, but part of me will always think the young angry version from Boy through War was still their best incarnation.
post #148 of 1296
"Colony of Birchmen" - Mastodon. I've heard it many times, but it just came on my ipod and I haven't listened to it in quite some time. Just a great tune.
post #149 of 1296
Listening to Dylan II

Bringing It All Back Home & Highway 61 Revisited

Maggie's Farm, Outlaw Blues, Love Minus Zero/No Limit, Tombstone Blues, Desolation Row rocking me right now.

Thanks to all the commercials for the upcoming movie, ABBA - Mamma Mia
