Blackstreet - Fix →
While this is the original, I still adore ‘Fix’ on the virtue of the music video, featuring Blackstreet, Fishbone and ODB all sharing the same tenament house. The remix of ‘Fix’ made for the video—featuring Fishbone’s nutmeg flourishes and ODB’s incomprehensible growl/yelling—is the one I hear in my head when I play the original. Makes it a *lot* better.
Animaniacs - Yakko's World →
My brother and I *loved* Animaniacs. And—after getting the CD and Yakko & Wakko stuffed animals for xmas at a embarrassingly old age for being thrilled with stuffed animal gifts—we learned the songs. Both of us can sing this song, in entirety, if asked. But please don’t. It’s as embarrassing as the story. …And we prefer to sing Schnitzelbank, anyway.
Tiffehr: I will get my damned Dash syncing with gCal. Don’t *make* me spend an obsessive amount of time on it. Well, you totally can, but don’t. (via Twitter / Tiffehr)

The Mooney Suzuki - Oh Sweet Susanna →
As Jaime once pointed out for a mix, few songs rival ‘Oh Sweet Susanna’ when you’re cleaning your house and using your mop as a fake mic stand.
Tiffehr: Trying to interpret notes I wrote late last night. There’s a thread of coherency, but it’s obscured by scrawly, sleepy handwriting. (via Twitter / Tiffehr)

Maura O'Connell - Crazy Dreams →
It took me 3 years to track down this song. I first heard it on bootlegs of Bela Fleck’s career-launching 1985 appearance at the Telluride Bluegrass Festival, then again on a 1996 bootleg. Neither with names, and both live recordings with unclear vocals. But I finally tracked it down. Absolutely amazing lyrics, and impressive bluegrass arrangement (better live, of course) and...
homage to the weekly world news (1979-2007) →
Fabio The world of journalism was rocked when America Media, Inc. announced that it was suspending publication of the Weekly World News. Citing the general decline of print newspapers, AMI will run two more original issues and then a few more reprints before it shuts down in late August. I’m sad. You gotta love any paper claiming to be “America’s Only Reliable Newspaper” and gives you a classic...
New Order - Temptation →
The only song on the ‘Trainspotting’ soundtrack that isn’t heavily dated. But it also might be a clue to where the Killers found their sound—who my age *didn’t* have the soundtrack on repeat from ‘96 into ‘97?

D'Angelo - One Mo' Gin →
The stand out tune from a hell of an album. The liner notes for Voodoo, by the phenomenal poet Saul Williams, channel lots of ideas about the legacy of sexy reverence from D’ and the likes of Marvin Gaye, like dirt, salvation, grit, soul, redemption and sex. ‘One Mo Gin’ is what he meant, mos definitely.
Ani DiFranco - Both Hands →
I prefer the live verison of ‘Living in Clip’, but the lyrics are still seductively fantastic in the early days. One of the best encores I’ve ever seen an a show. I know one guy who likes this song, and he’s a pearl of free thinking, in my book.
Johnny Cash - I See A Darkness →
The BEST death-row sad song ever. Hands down, voting for the champion is over, everybody else just gets consolation prizes.
The Roots - Clones →
‘Nother great hook, that’s nothing but better when The Roots play it live. I could wish for more evenness and story in the lyrics, but it’s a battle rhyme and some of the best verses from Malik B before he vanished from the group.
