Hi it's me again.  I can't get enough of this.  This song.  This video. The bittersweet nostalgia/melancholy feeling it invokes in me. The way she looks at me at 1:01.
Have never heard this. Really great.
Nice dig.  I totally missed this.  That voice sounds earily similar to Tanita Tikarum's, who I adore like no other (that she bore a strong resemblance to Phoebe Cates in her early years matters).

I don't want to clutter up this fine thread, but here are two more samples of Tanita.

Time to clear out the queue a bit.

I had a bunch of leftover songs after I hit my initial 1000.  From that point on I have been more stringent about what I'm adding.  My new threshold is thinking about sitting on my patio late at night with a beer and a fire, if the song comes on would I want to listen to it? 

The following just make that cut.

1108. Soundgarden - The Day I Tried To Live

1109. Badflower - Heroin

1110. Cracker - Low

1111. Sara Bareilles - Love Song

1112. Wynonna Judd - Keeps Me Alive

1113. Phillip Pillips - Home

1114. Elle King - Ex's & Oh's

1115. Edward Sharpe & The Magnetic Zeros - Home

1116. Daft Punk - Get Lucky

1117. Jr. Walker & The All-Stars - Shotgun

1118. The Fixx - One Thing Leads to Another

1119. Von Bondies - C'mon C'mon

1120. Trigger Hippy - Don't Wanna Bring You Down

1110. Cracker - Low
I'm gonna have to go full rebuttal on Cracker.  Probably more that any other band in the 90s, these are the guys I related to the most.  I like Low, but it probably does not crack my top 20 Cracker songs.  Before I even go dig up some youtubes, I'm going to limit myself to four songs I like more (five, if ou want to seek out the obligatory Eurotrash Girl)

Cracker, Lloyd Cole, and Cavin Russell are probably my top three where I'm inclined to harrumph and be outspoken.

  1. What the World Needs Now - was kind of a game changer for me back in 91. Along with Nirvana and Social Distortion, the rock guitar was back.
  2. Big Dipper
  3. Something You Ain't Got - probably my favorite
  4. Ain't that Strange
Could come up with 50 different songs if given a few months.

ETA: Sory, beer.

Love these new songs I left in there and the new threshold, especially. Well done.

I'm not sure I've ever heard those.  I've never listened to a Cracker album.  That stuff is decent.  For some of these artists, I didn't put in the effort to seek out other stuff they did.

It's all time and place, and circumstance. I spent a lot of time on the road in the 90s listening to CDs and making treks to visit my kids post-divorce. It was Bittersweet.

Missed some great chances here, though. "Ring My Bell," "Malibu," "Welcome To The Black Parade," and "Let's Go Surfing" are all way up there in my book.

From Camper Van Beethoven to Cracker, it’s all good imo.

Lots of good stuff in here. For a while I strongly disliked Ex’s and Oh’s because it was ridiculously overplayed, but after a couple years of not hearing it every day, I’ve really come around to it. Her performance at Daryl’s house is a lot of fun.

Also, I share your feelings towards Sara Bareilles in the Love Song music video. :wub:

Is the Spotify list updated?

This has been a recent soundtrack to my city bike rides (thanks), and I generally only stop at red lights when I'm wondering  WTF song I am listening to.

Hasn't been updated for a while.  I'll get to it.

I see we’re into the “throw #### at the wall and see what sticks” phase of this thread... 😉
