Don't mean to hog the shelf, but Tuesday's come and gone and nobody else posted, and last week's book conversation kept me jazzed for the rest of the week... so I'll make a go of it again. So! What music can't you live without right now, today? What songs or albums are you plugged into that you can 't get enough of? How about we try to stay within five choices, to keep things moving? Mine: 1. The Cardigans - Long Gone Before Daylight Found a pre-release copy of this (I love NYC) and have listened to it at least once a day for the past two weeks. Completely different than their previous stuff - a little bluesy, less pop-y, kind of like a softer Aimee Mann in places. I've turned several people here at work onto it, as well. Amazing album. 2. Elbow - Cast of Thousands This has been my Winter album. When I'm feeling all moody and angsty, it pulls me down and then lifts me up. 3. Outkast - Hey Ya Can't... stop... listening... to this... song... 4. Rufus Wainwright - Poses Haven't gotten into his latest album, but for the past couple of months I keep listening to "Cigarettes and Chocolate Milk" and then find myself swept into the rest of the album. I could listen to CandCMilk ten times in a row and not get tired of it. Hey, I think I'll do that right now... 5. Eddie Izzard - all of it I've got five of his routines ripped and on my computer here at work and on my iPod. Fantastic to walk around Manhattan giggling to myself, saying "Alright alright, yes, I'm Jeff Vader. I'm Jeff Vader." or to sit in my cubicle saying "Ciao!"
on preview, the link to virgin radio goes like this "www.monkeyfilter.com/virginradio.co.uk". not sure why... perhaps because this is my first post and I'm doing something wrong. sigh.
