So, jasdye tagged me, requesting seven songs that I'm digging right now. Without further - or any, really - ado, here they are:
"Rich People Die Unhappy" - Butch Walker A countryish song that practically demands a bottle of Jack as an accompaniment. It's the perfect song for my current financial state. I mean, c'mon: "Rich people die unhappy/that's what daddy said/but I never believed him/while drunk in the head/with our television dinners/and a broken TV set/money makes you happy I bet"
"Modern Love" - The Last Town Chorus A slow-as-molasses take on the Bowie classic. I hear it was used in that hospital drama all the chicks like.
"Sad Bomber" - The Asylum Street Spankers If you're not into this band, you should be. I'll let the chorus speak for itself: "Ever since the night you blew me off/I'm blowin' up the town/I'm volatile and hard to handle/since you put me down/they call me the Sad Bomber/but I'm happy as a clown/'cause ever since the night you blew me off/I'm blowin' up the town"
"Never Be Rude To An Arab" - Monty Python Because it made my co-workers laugh. A lot.
"Grace Kelly" - Mika Don't believe the naysayers. It's the Single of the Summer.
"Everybody Knows You Cried Last Night" - The Fratellis So. Damn. Catchy. It's as if the Beatles were a Scottish garage band.
"St. Augustine" - Band of Horses Thanks for recommendation, Reg.
Okay, I'll only tag a few: Reggie, Herodotus, and Kate the Great. CHALLENGE!
