Current Favorites

Eels, "Hey Man (Now You're Really Living)"

The Magnetic Fields, "Papa Was a Rodeo"

(both from James's excellent mix CD, which M and E are getting kind of sick of, but I'm not) (though we've all fallen in love with "Hey Man") (kind of like we fell in love with "Suddenly I See" two years ago) (which makes me wonder whether the Eels are some sort of super-hit that I've never heard of, like KT Tunstall was) (except that given the oddity of the rest of the CD, I'm not so sure) (he managed to find what must be the only emo-ish Parliament song ever) (and I want Nina Simone's version of "I Shall Be Released" to be played at my funeral) (damn, YouTube removed the video, but, seriously, go find it somewhere, it's awesome)

I am not sick of that cd either! It is so so so great. Did he send you a long letter explaining the significance of each song?

I just watched that guys attempt at making a video for the Magnetic Fields song and I'm really creeped out.

I find it hard to believe that there is only one "emo-ish" Pavement song.
