I was actually busy all day yesterday so I didn’t post any songs. I don’t think anybody noticed though.
Unicorns - Jellybones
“pulled up in my bone camarrow, thinking only about you”
Beck - Debra
I’ve always wanted to do this at a karaoke bar too. Even though my mom’s name is Debbie.
Husker Du - Eight Miles High
One of my favorite vocal performances ever. It just devolves into pained screaming at the end, but the emotion in his voice just kills me every single time.
Bruce Springsteen - Dancing In The Dark
When I lived in Las Vegas, this was my go-to karaoke jam. I legitimately love this song, in a non-ironic way.
Neutral Milk Hotel - Ghost
Morphine - Honey White
If you’re into Morphine at all, you should check out the documentary about Mark Sandman, called Cure For Pain. It is excellent, and heartbreaking.
Violent Femmes - Gone Daddy Gone
Tricky - Hell is Around The Corner
This album is almost 20 years old and it still sounds more advanced than almost anything that has come out since.
St. Etienne - Only Love Can Break Your Heart (Neil Young cover)
Is this trip hop? I’m asking for a friend.
Halo Benders - Virginia Reel Around The Fountain
This song would already be great without it, but I love how Calvin’s voice drones on like a didgeridoo underneath it all.
eels - Agony
The bit at 1:11 when the drums get rad and go into the guitar solo is one of my favorite musical moments ever.
Dismemberment Plan - Close To Me [Cure cover]
As much as I love the original, I think I might actually like this one better. I mean it’s half cover/half original since they changed most of the lyrics, but still…
Joy Division - Transmission [Live, 1979]
Daft Punk - Da Funk
This was really the only Daft Punk song I ever liked, and it had a lot to do with this video.
