I'll have to check it out.

I love Starlings and The Bones of You and I really get into Some Riot and, of course, Grounds for Divorce. The Fix has really grown on me. I love me some Elbow, but its nowhere near Leaders of the Free World overall.
Leaders was quite something, and I went into this new one with lesser expectations. It's a really good album so far, but if I still listen to it as much as the former one I'll be surprised, but not my much.

Spoon's "The Underdog".

It sort of reminds me of Billy Joel--and I really can't stand Billy Joel--but damn if this isn't some catchy stuff. It's probably got something to do with the horns.

Glen Hansard's version of "Everytime". Yeah yeah, call me a sap, I don't care.

Ben Folds' "Landed." I'm such a pussy.

It's great.

Also, just got the Deluxe Edition of Tears for Fears' Songs From The Big Chair, and I cannot stop listening to Head Over Heels....
post #56 of 1296
Head Over Heels is a a great, great song. I must have listened to it a couple of hundred times in recent years and it still sounds great.

Clara Clairvoyant - Donovan

Aaaah! I have the Donovan box set now! Boys are awesome because they give me things!

"What Keeps Mankind Alive?" as done by Tom Waits.

"Mankind is kept alive, by bestial acts!"

The Go-Go's version is better.

Boingo - "Insanity"

I'd forgotten how much I loved this song. Found the CD in a stack of stuff I thought I had sold years ago.
post #61 of 1296
A song that never fails to get me is "Runaway". The Traveling Wilburys' cover is surprisingly great.
post #62 of 1296
They Might Be Giant's entire first album is on my mind, particularly "Don't Let's Start"
post #63 of 1296
Why the hell can a song that
a) doesn't have a melody
b) has the most brainless lyrics this side of KISS
c) isn't even remotely the type of music I like

be playing constantly in my head? I'm talking about WORK! by Kelly "fuck you" Rowland.

The Dropkicks song that has really been slapping me around lately however is Famous For Nothing, which I may eventually add to my long mental list of Personal Theme Songs(tm).
You're not wrong!

My gang went their way for alcohol
When we met it wasn't pretty at all
Still the bells of St. Mary's kept ringing"

Fantastic album. I'm particularly fond of "Everything Right is Wrong Again" and "Put Your Hand Inside the Puppet Head."

Fun fact: "Everything Right is Wrong Again" was used over the end credits of the Steve Buscemi/Jon Glover classic, Ed and His Dead Mother.

Knights by Minus The Bear

It has the most amazing non-solo solo ever. Reminds me alot of something out of an 8-bit Nintendo song.
post #67 of 1296
Sia - 'Breathe Me'

Beautiful.

You're a shill, but damned if you didn't post in the appropriate forum. Congratulations!

I've never been much of a fan, but Death Cab's new single, in all it's 8 minute glory, "I Will Possess Your Heart" is legitimately ownin' me. But I'm a sucker for long instrumentals.
post #71 of 1296
Animal Collective's "Peacebone" is stuck in my brain today. I wish I could figure out what those fucking words are in the chorus. Kid fight? Kid flying? Insight? Insides?

The whole tribute album to Weil/Brecht that the song comes from is eight kinds of awesome.

"Poupée de cire, poupée de son" - both the Arcade Fire cover and the France Gall/Serge Gainsbourg original
post #74 of 1296
Inspired by recent events I put that "Tibet Freedom Concert" sampler from back in the 90`s on again.

And now I can´t get the live version of "Electrolite" performed by Stipes out of my head or mp3 player. Haunting yet beautiful.

"Something to Happen" by Jay Reatard. It raaawks.
post #76 of 1296
See user text and sig. "Abel" by The National has infected me once again. Look up one of the many larynx-shredding live versions on youtube or imeem. Phenomenal.
post #77 of 1296
I'm loving "Love Vigilantes" by New Order, as well as "Ooh La La" by Goldfrapp. I must be in some kind of electronic dance music mood.
And the theme song to Police Academy is forever stuck in my head, coming up at weird times, like when I'm stuck in traffic or taking an exam.
post #78 of 1296
"Skin of the Night" off the new M83.

Such a blissful 80s style song that really takes me back. Seeing as I was born in 1985, I'm not quite sure where exactly that is, but the song is gorgeous.
post #79 of 1296
Not the coolest song or band in the world, but I've been listening to Still Life by Suede quite a bit this week. I love the Phantom of the Opera-style grandness of it. Its so over the top, but quite wonderful at the same time.

I'm really digging Colin Hay's acoustic versions of "Down Under", "Overkill", and "Who Can it Be Now".

After hearing "Overkill" on Scrubs, I discovered Colin had an album called "Man @ Work", with reworked Men at Work songs.

Matthew Ryan's "Me & My Lover." Thanks, summer. Also, "Lovers in a Dangerous Time."
post #82 of 1296
I'm on a bit of a country kick as of late.

Hank Williams III - "Cocaine Blues"
Lonesome Wyatt & the Holy Spooks - "A Lovely Coffin"
post #83 of 1296
"Threshold Apprehension" by Black Francis. Its my apparently undying love for the Pixies that has me putting this song on repeat.
post #84 of 1296
"Straight to Hell" by the Clash. The intro hooks me in every time I hear it. (Sorry, M.I.A., I love "Paper Planes", but you can't top the original.)

Saw Colin in Calgary a few years ago. Still one of my favourite concerts ever. Just a great, fun evening filled with pretty nifty pop songs.

"Will You Be Around", from Platinum Weird, the fake 70s band that was a project of Dave Stewart's a few years back. As evidenced by my superduper neverending love for the Pipettes, I'm a fan of modern musicians doing music in a retro style, and I really dig this song. I think it does the whole "forgotten singer of the Fleetwood Mac era" thing really well.
post #87 of 1296
"Dr. Strangeluv" by Blonde Redhead. 23 was one of my favorite albums of last year, but I kinda neglected this song. I shouldn't have; it's great!
post #88 of 1296
Recently rediscovered how great Mezzanine by Massive Attack is. Aside from the well-known brilliance of Teardrop and Angel, I'm really digging Man Next Door and Inertia Creeps. Where did Massive Attack go?
post #89 of 1296
Editors An End Has A Start has been running through my head pretty much non-stop for the last few days. Prior to that, I was Purple Toupees's bitch for a little while, no doubt helped by all the TMBG love this site has exuded lately.

Pretty much the whole damn album is brilliant. The follow-up album was kinda meh, but then again, it's difficult to top one of the best album of the last 10-15 years, at the very least electronically speaking. Live, it's a bit expensive, but oh so brilliant, especially the Mezzanine tracks.
post #91 of 1296
Too Many Puppies by Primus. This song has been owning my ass for months though.
post #92 of 1296
"Jerusalem" by Sleep has been keeping me going for the last few days.

For those that don't know, it's a 52 minute doom/stoner metal song. I've been playing it ad nauseam.
post #93 of 1296
"Winter" - The Dodo's
"Kim & Jessie" - M83
"Lovely Allen" - Holy Fuck

The Pipettes are so great. I saw them last year and they did not disappoint. It's a shame that 2/3 of the members just left. Doesn't really matter since Monster Bobby and the Cassettes are still behind the scenes, but still.

The thing about the Pipettes is that all three of the girls have personality (Rosay, will you be my girlfriend?), but the band has gone through numerous changes since they started. None of the original girls are still with the group. And as I mentioned to James, can you tell me who were in the Shangri-Las? The Crystals? It completely fits with their manifesto to give the girls personality, but also allow them the freedom to leave -- the "girls" together are more important than the girls individually. The sound is what matters.

Anyway, I'm totally digging "World Spins Madly" by the Weepies. I'm so, so easy.

Other Side Of The World - KT Tunstall
A Cause Des Garcons - Yelle
Violent and Young - Iglu & Hartly
Electric Feel - MGMT
post #96 of 1296
"Ramalama (Bang Bang)" - Róisín Murphy. Not that there's ever a time when this song isn't owning me.
post #97 of 1296
In deference to Ripoll's knowledge, I went back to the Mountain Goats' Autoclave off Heretic Pride and I'm glad I did.

Though I'm still scratching the gold off M83. Me likey the 80s.

DCFC - I Will Possess You Heart

"Do you believe in the West World?" by Theatre of Hate. A goth interpretation of a spaghetti western score. With a saxophonist playing tastefully.

post #100 of 1296
Thanks to the "Commercials you hate thread", that fuckin' "Credit Report.com Baby" song.

Make it stop...... Please?
