In the meantime, more song reviews, in 140 characters or less.
Cuscatlan - Frente
Suggested by Michael
Listened twice, 'cos first time wasn't quite into it. Suspect it improves on repeated listenings. Still prefer Accidentally Kelly St. But OK.
We Looked Like Giants - Death Cab for Cutie
Suggested by Andrew
Is this what they call 'emo'? I don't mind the guitar riff. I think this band may be too grand and epic for me. Like red wine or something.
F***ing Perfect - Pink
Suggested by Haven
Yep, you get me. Slightly cliche clip aside, I love the message. I like most of Pink's stuff. I'm sure that makes me a terrible person.
Renegade Master (Old Skool Edit) - Fat Boy Slim
Suggested by Dan
Frankly, I would've preferred 'Praise You'. I can somewhat appreciate it, but I don't think I'd listen often. I disappoint Dan yet again!
Table for One - Passenger
Suggested by djackmanson
Pretty, but still, it's another track for my compilation album "Songs to Slit Your Wrists To". I think it would make me too sad.
She Talks to Angels - The Black Crowes
Suggested by salweatherford
Again, can see it's lovely song, but ...show. I don't know. I feel bad for not liking these souful songs as much as I feel I should.
Friday - Rebecca Black
Suggested by Kris, hilariously
Considering how many times I had to listen to this for my dodgy Good Friday parody, there's no need for download. It's permanently stuck.
I Feel Lucky - Mary Chapin Carpenter
Suggested by Tom Salinsky
Certainly not what I expected from Tom! But he's right, it's so charming and upbeat, you can't help but smile.
Bohemian Like You - The Dandy Warhols
Suggested by Andrew
This is a great song! Personally, I prefer 'Everyday Should be a Holiday', but this is still super fun and boppy. Love the 'ooh ooh ooohs'.
Everybody's Free (To Wear Sunscreen) - Baz Luhrman, Romeo & Juliet soundtrack
Suggested by ClueMark
This was actually the song for my Year 12 class, & I have a great fondness for it. Preachy in its way, but some stellar lines. Heart.
Broken Angel - Boyce Avenue
Suggested by KC Kitten
This seems made for the end of Scrubs, or House, etc to achieve poignancy. Again, pretty & sad, but I don't think...argh, OK FINE.
Walking on Broken Glass - Annie Lennox
Suggested by SurgeonBug
Soaring vocals, sharp violins & brilliant desperate lyrics. Still manages to be sunny and fun. Also, Hugh Laurie is in the film clip. Total win.
|Dr House off his meds
Life During Wartime - Talking Heads
Suggested by Sam Clifford
David Byrne's a bit... well, insane. Or is that just me? I will download this though, because somehow I feel it's Important.
Lonkaluut - Korpiklaani
Suggested by es02
Actually liked this more than I thought. Prefer the music to the lyrics though. Am torn. I assume this is the rock of Valhalla?
The Funeral - Band of Horses
Suggested by Kathryn
Stunning! This is *good* sad music, if that makes sense. Full of longing, but a weird sense of joy too. Rocking guitar. Big tick!
Babies - Pulp
Suggested by Amy
Pulp never really sang as much as told stories to music, did they? Not that that's a bad thing. I quite like this nostalgic number.
Thanks again to everyone who has contributed a song. Remember, it's nothing personal if I didn't like your song choice - it's good to keep in mind that I'm a terrible person with abysmal taste and no business being on the internet.
