FMD: 2020 Summer Mix

Oh, man, this one should be a doozy...

1. The theme is "Summer". You're free to interpret that as you'd like. Especially this summer...
2. Put your nominations in a Spoiler box.
3. You may nominate up to 3 songs. Any further nominations will be ignored.
4. Unless we get an insane amount of nominations for some reason, everyone's first choice is automatically in. The rest of the mix will be filled out with the other nominations.

Also, toss out a list if you feel like it.

    3. Remix by Fever Ray
    5. Bonus track, I guess. Target Exclusive?
    6. Opening Theme from season 1 of Fullmetal Alchemist. Not as good as some of the other themes, but this helped get me hooked on the show.

      1. Yup. From an absolute heart breaker of an episode that I haven't been able to watch since my sister passed.

        1. Hold On Hope is probably one of the more "controversial" songs in the GBV canon. The band has denounced this version as over-produced and trying too hard to goose a hit single from the label. So the fans have glommed onto that. Which all is a little too much of "Indie band sell out," gripe for me, which get's tiresome. Probably isn't in my top 50 GBV songs but it's decent. I get why people like it and why can't we just leave it that?

          1. There's something to be said for accessibility. I've listened to more GBV because of this song than I would have without it. That said, I can understand the plight of the passionate fan who wants everyone to love GBV for who they are, not what they put out one time - that's a pretty normal human experience.

            1. I agree. Now that I have your attention, have you heard Soul Barn, it's off Suitecase #2, full of unreleased and demo versions of Pollard songs. In this collection you'll find Pollard testing new boundaries of song making...... (oops, sorry got a little carried away there.)
