songs i can't get out of my head

it looks like it might be a new feature updated whenever the heck i feel like it.


  • "where were you" by kathrin shorr
  • "nothing better" by the postal service (still) (ed: best breakup song. sounds way happier than it is. but i have trouble when he attests that hockey games are divided into quarters and not periods)
  • "waltz #2" by elliott smith (still)
  • "a" by barenaked ladies (i go through love/hate periods with this song. this is a love period)
  • "the partisan" by leonard cohen
  • "reasonland" by antje duvekot
  • "close to me" by the cure
  • "i was just thinking" by teitur
  • "older chests" by damian rice. can't remember if this has been on the list before

updated to include the songs i couldn't think of last night:

  • "back of your hand" by danielle howle
  • "the last of the famous international playboys" by morrissey (this has been On My List since we went to the cure vs. the smiths dance party in ithaca this summer)
  • "beestung" by kristin hersh
  • "mother" by tori amos
  • "bad day" by r.e.m. (ha!)
  • "true faith" by new order
  • "kiss off" by the violent femmes
  • "evenflow" by pearl jam (there are some lines where i do a frighteningly good impression of eddie vedder)
  • "bring a torch jeannette, isabella" by mannheim steamroller (it's too early for christmas music but this is just pretty and unrelated to christmasness)
  • "carnival" by natalie merchant

this extremely long list of songs proves what i've been saying all along: i have no control over the DJ, people. whatever comes out just comes out with no forethought (kind of like my blog posts). and i can think of very few things that are more annoying than having 8 songs stuck in your head AT THE SAME TIME.

these music lists...I've got to write these groups down. I think the only one I knew was Leonard Cohen and he's one of my all-time favorites. Best album (in my op): I'm Your Man (Take This Waltz--awesome song). What album has "The Partisan"?

this is much less dry and more entertaining than the counterintelligence paper you should be writing....

what the hell is it with "evenflow"? i haven't listened to pearl jam in years, but this one still haunts me once in a while.

very interesting list, ms. feather.
