|The Cure - This Twilight Garden|
(Jul 05, 2011 - 08:30)
|I just have not listened to much Cure since the late 80s/early 90s, but they still get a squishy part of my heart.|
|Rachid Taha - Barra Barra|

|Wasn't this in "Blackhawk Down"? |
I like the song, like the message and power in it, but the drumbeat and heavy guitar are a little hard on my wimpy, headache-prone skull.
|VAST - Dead Angels|
(Dec 21, 2010 - 07:27)
|I quite enjoy VAST, but I'd rather hear Blown Away or Blue. This tune hasn't quite grown on me the way some of their other material has.|
|Crash Test Dummies - Mmm Mmm Mmm Mmm|

|I had a mixtape with this song on it back when it came out. My car was a clunker and I had to throw a boom box in the floorboard to have tunes. I commuted from Newport News to Virginia Beach for work. Clocked a lot of hours on that mixtape, on that boom box, in that car, on that road. >.<|
|Massive Attack - Sly|

|I generally adore most Massive Attack. This I could take or leave.|
+props to the Casio, though, brings back some great memories! Ah, sampling!

|The cylons were created by man. They rebelled. They evolved. And they want to get your love any way they can.|
|Red Hot Chili Peppers - Breaking The Girl|
(Feb 17, 2010 - 21:21)
|I didn't get the Tull thing (re: comment below), but there at the end, it really caught me. So I rated this a little higher than I was gonna. But on its own, it's still one of my favorite RHCP tunes. I like the acoustic-y-ness of it.|
|Black Crowes - She Talks to Angels|
(Feb 17, 2010 - 21:08)
|I've always liked the song, but my mouse rated it a 6 just because it's heard it eleventybajillion times since it was released. It's a good song, though.|
Edit: I'm just mentally downrating this to a 5.5. *squint*

True, but this is a lovely song and the Jenny's do well by it nevertheless.
I do still wish Bill would play the Siberry version just the same.
This version is quite touching and I'm definitely enjoying it. But me too, I'm wanting to hear Siberry.
|Poe - Haunted|
(Feb 17, 2010 - 20:21)
|"Haunted" is the one song on the album I absolutely have to have as loud as it can go, just to hear the ethereal whispers and gothic choruses in the background, and Poe wailing midway through, "and I will always miss you..." Gives me goosebumps every time. |
And this album is one of the most beautiful, exciting, grief-strewn, bewitching things I've ever heard. From the confused, pulse-pounding, climactic cacophonies of "Wild" to the utterly heartbreaking whispers of "Terrified Heart", it feels sometimes too-private as you witness Poe processing the loss of her father, with tummy-tickling highs and grim, sometimes chilling lows. This album is a journey, a memoir, a symbol, not just a collection of songs. I can't listen without coming away feeling haunted, and that's a good thing.

|This is on a rrrreally great compilation CD called "LateNightTales: Air". The whole LateNightTales set is extremolutely fantasterrific and would be well appreciated by RP listeners.|
