Songs that are owning you right now

post #1 of 1044
Thread Starter 
David Bowie's 'The Jean Genie'. Trevor Bolder's bass line is too good for words.
post #2 of 1044
That is a great song. Bowie's Diamond Dogs always gets to me.

Beck's Golden Age is so fucking beautiful. I plan to use it in the movie I wil write one of these days.
post #3 of 1044
Phil Collins's In The Air Tonight. I find myself constantly humming it. Ohhhh Lord.
post #4 of 1044
I got two songs in my head, The Haunted - Smut King & David Bowie - Life on Mars? And now I just downloaded Mastodons cover of Orion by Metallica, so I'm sure I'll be humming that one soon enough.
post #5 of 1044
Hmm... I guess "right now" is relative.
post #6 of 1044
'Rhyme & Reason' by Dave Matthews Band has been getting a lot of play

'Stupid MF' by Mindless Self Indulgence as well...
post #7 of 1044
I've always got a few.

Right now it's Dispatch's Past The Falls(for relaxing), Built To Spill's Going Against Your Mind(for biking), and TV On The Radio's Wear You Out(for...intimacy, I suppose).

Against Me! - From Her Lips To God's Ears

and

Blood Brothers - Love Rhymes With Hideous Car Wreck

"Premiscuos Girl." Not a joke. Not my type of music. But nevertheless it's stuck in my head.
post #10 of 1044
Is that anything like Promiscuous Girl?
post #11 of 1044
Beats having Sister Christian by Night Ranger stuck in you head for a week. I thought I was going to hurt somebody.
post #12 of 1044
DeVotchKa's "How It Ends"
post #13 of 1044
"Avenging Angels" by Space. The whole Cole Porter-esque middle eight section makes me grin.
post #14 of 1044
Move On Up by Curtis Mayfield. That horn section blows my ass up.
post #15 of 1044
I know it's cliche, but I've got "Under Pressure" in my head after watching the Studio 60 pilot. Any song that makes you smile despite hearing it hundreds of times in hundreds of places has to be one of the greatest rock songs ever recorded.

Or rap songs.
post #17 of 1044
Under Pressure is one of the greatest songs ever recorded. It doesn't get enough respect as such, but it is definitely on the list.

The two songs I can't get out of my head right now are White Line Fever by Motorhead and Quicksand by David Bowie. Motorhead I've only recently discovered. I just never paid attention to them and that's been my loss. The Bowie song is my favorite song by my favorite artist, so it's always sort of tumbling around in my brain.

Speaking of Queen, I've been listening to them a lot lately. Mustapha always winds up in heavy rotation when that happens. It wasn't a hit single, but it's one of my favorites.

The Flash Gordon soundtrack is total sex. Anything by Sam Cooke gets my toes tapping.
post #24 of 1044
I just had Flash Gordon going on my iPod all day. I love that album. I always thought it was a shame that Queen didn't do the soundtrack thing again.

Well, Highlander has a lot of Queen music. As I recall anyway.
post #26 of 1044
It has songs, but the score was by Michael Kamen. Flash Gordon had a full Queen score. I should have said score instead of soundtrack.

Me too. The fact that my theatre is playing Little Miss Sunshine on two screens probably has something to do with that.
post #28 of 1044
Queen Bitch by Bowie. I think it's the relation to the finalé of THE LIFE AQUATIC. Either way I just can't get enough.
post #29 of 1044
Everything I Do (I Do It for You) by Canada's own crater-face. It's been playing in my head ever since someone brought it up here.
If a song keeps playing in your head you'd supposed to listen to it one time to make it would go away. But that would be admitting defeat.

Promiscuous Girl is a good song, and was rolling around in my head a lot last month. Unfortunately, I'm currently being tormented by the less elevated fare of T-Pain's I'mN Luv (Wit A Stripper).
post #31 of 1044
"California" by The Rentals, demo of "Barcelona", and far better than the finished product. Guitars don't get more crushing than this.
post #32 of 1044
Justin Timberlake's "SexyBack". Same deal - not my kind of music, not even sure how it enfiltrated my ears... nevertheless, I can't escape it.

Since Entourage recently, I can't get that Queens of the Stone Age song outta my head either (played during the credits of the Vegas episode)

And a few tracks that appeared in Miami Vice (especially Mogwai and Moby). I just keep humming them all day.

The Willing Well III: Apollo II: The Telling Truth by Coheed & Cambria.

Which means Apollo I: The Writing Writer is also stuck in my head, as they reprise each other (in particular, they share the same catchy shorus), being part of a concept album and all that . . .

Thanks alot!

"Come on Bitch, Why aren't you laughing now!!!!
You left.. me here.. to fend on my OooO Ooown!!"

but on Appollo II I always get this stuck in my head:

"Jessie, BAD boy! Just come look at what your brother did,
to that girl's,
precious,
Little whore of a body,
NAOOOUUWW!"
Damn you!

post #36 of 1044
Any Bob Marley. I'm savoring the rest of summer.
post #37 of 1044
Lately I've been rockin the albums Cosmos and Surface to Air by Zombi. Really good insturmental Neo-Prog that sounds like a lost soundtrack to a Fulci film. Really creepy and awesome. Fuckin amazing to listen to driving around late at night while no one else is on the roads. Perfect soundtrack to the apocalypse.

Makes me proud to see all the Bowie mentioned. Bowie always owns my ipod.

Also, that new single by the Killers, "When you were young" is pretty good too.

Burl Ives' "The Goat and the Train"

'Here's a story about a goat and a train. This goat did something no other goat had ever done before."
post #39 of 1044
"Subdivisions" by Rush. Neil Peart going absolutey apeshit on the high hat is always a good time.
post #40 of 1044
The new Johnny Cash single makes me want to go out and smite someone.
post #41 of 1044
Oooh, is that the "you can run for a long time" one? That's an outstandingly catchy song.
post #42 of 1044
I can't think of any specific songs, but that new Aguilera album is pretty damn hot.
post #43 of 1044
When we were young by The Killers.

Pretty catchy, just like their previous album.
post #44 of 1044
The Twilight Singers cover of "Crazy" gets an excessive amount of play right now. And DBT's "18 Wheels of Love".

I'm a fan of Bomber, myself.

Old Crow Medicine Show's 'Wagon Wheel' (chorus written by Bob Dylan) is so good that I take my ipod to the bar just so I can listen while pissing.

DJ Drama's 'Cannon Remix' with Lil' Wayne is proof that the South has lyricists just as creative and unpredictable as anywhere else.

Right now In Flames - Take This Life is the song that I have been playing over...and over... It just speaks to me right now!! (or maybe its just because it sounds cool)

Have they done a formal cover of the song yet? aside from the bootleg that's available here and there on the net.

edited to add...

Song that owns me right now is Wigwam by Bob Dylan that I tracked down when compiling a makeshift Tenenbaums soundtrack.
post #50 of 1044
I'm not sure. I just have the live version from 5.29.06.
