Last Request – Paolo Nutini
When someone is on a major record label by 18 and is producing pop ballads this smooth by 20, it kind of strikes an envious chord in me. Check out also “Loving You”.
So Long, So Long – Dashboard Confessional
Adam Duritz from Counting Crows is featured on this track, which has a pretty addictive bridge: “I was thinkin’ that the season could be held between my arms. But just as summerÃ¢??s hold is fleeting I was here but now IÃ¢??m gone”
Age Six Racer – Dashboard Confessional
I forget the name of the female backup on this song but it’s what really makes it work so well. For lyrical purposes, probably better off playing this one in September.
Currents – Dashboard Confessional
If you can’t get on board with a chorus that goes: “If it is born in flames then we should let it burn”, then I just don’t know what you want from music anymore.
Final Hour – Lauryn Hill “But when it comes down to ground beef like Palestine, Say your rhymes, let’s see if that get you out your bind”: If more hip hop songs like this were made I would probably listen to the genre more often.
Sympathy – Goo Goo Dolls
One of those strong acoustic songs that you think was written by you or about you. But it’s really wasn’t.
I Don’t Like Mondays – Tori Amos
Originally written about a girl who shot up her high school in California back in the 80’s. When asked why she did it her answer was the title of the song.
Something Vague – Bright Eyes
You know that feeling you get when you’ve just woken up from a dream and you’re trying to remember it? That’s this song.
Sweet list! i’ll have to check out paolo nutini when i’m not at work. Interesting to find Tori Amos up there!
“Blue Monday how I hate Blue Monday
Got to work like a slave all day”
FullThrottle, the song was originally done by the boomtown rats…this is just (what i think is) a great cover by Tori Amos
“Got to work like a slave all day”
9-5 and you complain ..sho a7ki ana :mob:
Nas …nagesni depression
maha: my bad! 😀
i love and always have loved Lauren Hill. her style is so unique and u feel she sings for a cause.. and thats admirable.
nice list i must say 😀
“I Don’t Like Mondays” is an awesome song. Though I personally prefer the original version by The Boomtown Rats. Don’t get me wrong, I like Tori Amos; I just prefer it when she does her own material.
Verbal Alchemy: thanks!
Beti: hmm, i think the amos cover is a bit darker
hi five! good selection
mazz: lol thanks..hi five reminds me of borat now 😀
NAS I never heard the boomtown rats version so I cant compare but i like Tori Amos
MAHA…who are you? how do you know my hours (btw are wrong)?
Slave…One who is abjectly subservient to a specified person aka my preceptor. 40+hrs and no pay…what do you have to say about that! 😉
