  1. Fine, I'll start...

    1. “The Light” Common Like Water for Chocolate
    2. “Blume” Einstürzende Neubauten Tabula Rasa*
    3. “Then The Letting Go” Bonnie 'Prince' Billy The Letting Go
    4. “No More Workhorse Blues” Bonnie 'Prince' Billy No More Workhorse Blues
    5. “The Wacky World Of Rapid Transit” Del Tha Funkee Homosapien I Wish My Brother George Was Here

    7. “Extract Of Pineal Gland”* Fila Brazillia Maim That Tune
    8. “Weather Storm” Massive Attack feat. Craig Armstrong Protection
    9. “To Our Knees” Low The Invisible Way
    T. “Who the Waves Are Roaring For (Hunted II)”* Colin Stetson New History Warfare Vol. 3: To See More Light
    E. “Kraanerg (XL)” Iannis Xenakis Kraanerg*

    2. I've got this album and the next, Ende Neu from Einstürzende Neubauten, and they're both pretty good. (The first is great, the second one has some great songs and some clunkers.) I really should check out more of this band's music.

    4. This is the Sings Greatest Palace Music version, one of the songs that I think was improved. It had a music video directed by Harmony Korine.
    6. Funny, I just chose this album as my falling-asleep music last night. Wait... What Year is this?
    7. This Fila Brazillia song made them a lot of money (compared to what they made otherwise), as they licensed it for a US commercial for some internet service thingy. Just like the second 30 seconds, a looping guitar figure. I did not even recognize until it was pointed out to me. This was about the same time that the Orb** re-recorded "Little Fluffy Clouds" with new voices and guitar for Volkswagen. Apparently they couldn't get LeVarr Burton, Rickie Lee Jones, Pat Metheny, or Steve Reich to sign off or didn't want to share the money.

    T. In which Justin Vernon (Bonny Bear) shows up and ruins a few songs.
    E. I had believed that this was an stochastically-composed piece, but I've come to suspect that he actually just transcribed trumpeter swans for the horn parts.

    3. This is one of my kids' favorite songs.
    4. I don't really like most Mason Jennings. This one included, I think.
    6. This one doesn't work for me, but my wife likes it.
    B: This is a pretty cool song.

    1. It crossed my mind to list "Loser" for all ten of my songs (even before seeing your list), but I'm not actually bitter. It was a good season anyways.

        1. Too true! In that case I should go with "Thank You" Dido No Angel. (The lyrics may not all apply, but the artist is certainly appropriate enough.)

            1. Not really. I just remembered it again the for the first time the other day myself.

              Though we apparently disagree over its merit, I was certainly ready to move on (meaning out of the competition) after the first round anyway.

  8. So it's time for me to start putting together my summer playlist again...

    Any really good songs for listening to during the summer (they in no way need to mention the season, the weather, etc.) that you'd recommend? I've already got a pretty substantial list to pare down, but always looking for more at the same time.

    I'm specifically interested in Ben Harper and the Innocent Criminals recommendations, since I like lots and lots of what I hear from them. "Put It On Me" is fantastic, but I don't want that song specifically... and I don't know enough of the other stuff to make a selection? I'm also probably interested in some sort of "classic rock". A few years ago I put on "American Girl" and that went over surprisingly well in the midst of the other stuff. Something equivalent to that song could be useful.

    Music also has to be fairly kid friendly, or at least kid-neutral.

    There are a few definite spots taken already, but not a ton. I don't remember most of 'em right now, but I'm definitely going with "Diane Young" by Vampire Weekend and ending the mix with "A New Life" by Jim James.

    1. I remembered a few of the other songs already locked in...

      "The Calculation" by Regina Spektor
      "The Great Leap Forward" by Billy Bragg
      "The Denial Twist" by The White Stripes

    2. i used to be into BH&tIC, but they've fallen out of favor with me in recent years. diamonds on the inside is the last album i listened to (EDIT: holy balls, that came out ten years ago!?). from what i remember, good summer songs would be "breaking down", "gold to me", "faded", "suzie blue", and "brown eyed blues" (one from each of the first 5 albums).

    3. I basically listen to guitar rock, and when the mood strikes me, some folky stuff all summer. With that in mind here are some songs that seem summery to me.

      "This May Hurt (A Little)" by Dressy Bessy
      "Weekend" by Smith Westerns
      "I'm a Pretender" by The Exploding Hearts
      "It Isn't Forever" by The Field Mice
      "Without a Song" by Vetiver
      "Long Haired Child" by Devendra Banhart
      "We'll Make a Lover of You" by Les Savy Fav
      "That Great Love Sound" by The Raveonettes
      "Built in Girls" by The Wrens
      "Future Myth" by Akron/Family

      Yeah I'll just stop now or I won't get any work done...

        1. I'm finally getting around to checking out this list. It turns out I recognized a good chunk of these. Thanks!

        1. I read the lyrics for the Elite Gymnastics song. They read brutal. They do not draw one's attention at all and you can't really make out anything except the title and the following line "Am I Guilty?"

    1. “soundtrack to mary” – soul coughingirresistible bliss
    2. “monopoly” – urge overkillexit the dragon
    3. “russia” – ramona fallsintuit
    4. “as i sat sadly by her side” – nick cave and the bad seedsno more shall we part
    5. “no intention” – dirty projectorsbitte orca
    6. “living on a thin line” – the kinksword of mouth
    7. “holland” – cold specksi predict a graceful explosion
    8. “i’ll be gone” – tom waitsfranks wild years
    9. “unsatisfied” – the replacementslet it be
    10. “siamese” – wye oakthe knot
