Top 5: Friday Music

I haven't subjected you to my musical tastes in awhile, so here are 5 songs I'm loving right now:

The Bends - Radiohead: Almost everyday, Garney calls me and leaves me a voice mail where he sings a Radiohead song as performed by someone famous (highlights include Christopher Walken singing Just and Carl from Slingblade performing Karma Police. They are all freaking awesome). Anywho, it's rekindled my love for Radiohead (not that it was really dead, but I've been listening to them more lately). This is a song I'm loving now more than ever.

Better - Regina Spektor: This is one of those songs that gets me dancing at my desk. I love her voice. Why isn't she more popular?

Kettle's On - The Feeling: I am so obsessed with this song. The idea of someone putting the kettle on to urge you home is so sweet.

When I Dream of Michelangelo - Counting Crows: From the forthcoming CC album. It's been, like, 6 years since they put out an album of new material so this is very exciting (assuming you like the Counting Crows).

Don't Stop Believin' - Journey: Is this not one of the greatest songs ever? I sang it at karaoke a few weeks ago and it pretty much instantly became my new favorite karaoke song. Ah Steven Perry. Thanks for singing as high as a woman.

I am totally jonesing for some new music recommendations, so if you have any, let's her 'em.

I left Miley off the list, but I still totally love her...because I am actually 12 years-old

No I did Sly and the Family Stone singing Just... Christoper Walken was My Iron Lung. I was particularly proud of my Eddie Vedder singing Planet Telex, but Michele thinks that my Adam Levine singing No Surprises is my best. I think my funniest is easily Robert Goulet singing Exit Music (For a Film). But it all started with Bob Dylan singing 2+2=5.

I pulled out some old mix CD's and here are 5 songs I've been loving lately:

In Between Days - Ben Folds covering The Cure
the song just sounds better on piano

Wave Motion Gun - Marcy Playground
from their underappreciated sophomore album Shapeshifter

Gravity Rides Everything - Modest Mouse
right before they "sold out"

Running To Stand Still - U2
There's no arguing with The Joshua Tree

Sowing the Seeds of Love - Tears for Fears
Was there a better Beatlesque song from the 80's?

Sorry. My memory sucks. I still have them all saved so I guess I could have fact checked, but I'm lazy.

Nice songs!

Please give this Garney fellow my phone number.

Regina Spektor's song Fidelity is one of my absolute favorite songs, but they're always putting it on trailers for stupid rom coms like 27 Dresses (I will defend Katherine Heigl, but not her choice in film work)and that just makes my soul die a little.

Dear Hollywood/Advertising World,

Please stop ruining my fav songs.


As for music - I recently got into an old band called the Modern Lovers. Check them out!

Beckeye: I'm trying to figure out a way to post them on the site (with G's permission, of course), but I'm not really computer savvy enough.

I'm afraid my music recommendations would only appeal to people who remember Meatloaf as a bad mofo riding his Harley into the bowels of hell, rather than a weeping, sad man with bitch tits.

Red said...

But he was so great as a weeping, sad man with bitch tits!

He was great, wasn't he?

That movie made it safe for men everywhere to hug each other.

And punch each other.
