Music nerd stuff
First, a correction to the National Playlist post. Since yesterday, they have updated the week's list to include those brought in by the panellists yesterday (and subsequently dumped a couple of songs). Oh it's a heartless game!
Yay (!!!) that Aside has moved up to #3 (from 7)!!!!! Thanks to anyone who voted for them. Can't believe that Bob Dylan and MIA are behind Nickhellback (as Michelle calls them), but there's no accounting for taste. (And so much for my pledge not to slag Nickleback)
Also dropped is Hope There's Someone by Antony and the Johnsons, sadly. I have to admit I haven't actually heard their music, but I love Antony Hegerty. How could you not love a 6'4" transvestite gentle giant, I ask you?
Here's the current list:
Neighbourhood #3 (Power Out), Arcade Fire, Funeral
When a man loves a woman, Percy Sledge, The Hit Songs of Percy Sledge
Aside, The Weakerthans, Left and Leaving
Life on Mars, David Bowie,Hunky Dory
Photograph, Nickelback, All the Right Reasons
Mornings Eleven,The Magic Numbers, The Magic Numbers
Louisiana 1927 , Randy Newman, Good Old Boys
Galang, M.I.A., Arular
Like a rolling stone, Bob Dylan, Highway 61 revisited
House of Gold, Andy Stochansky, 100
I bought my first Belle and Sebastian cd today (Dear Catastrophe Waitress). For a while now, Belle and Sebastian have been my guilty pleasure, but I refuse to feel guilty any longer. Call me an emo kid if you want; I don't care.
