Concrete Blonde made vampires sexy 15 years before they started sparkling.
the mashup you didnt need.
It took me two days to find this again and I’m never letting go
ohmy god. its the smash mouth fugue i’ve been looking for it for so long IT’S HERE AND IT’S BEAUTIFUL
And I didn’t think this song could be any more perfect.
Unfortunately this Louisville band never had any other good songs, but this one always fills me with Kentuckian pride. :D This song and a few beers can make my dad dance like Jesco White.
One of my favorite love songs. Reminds me of old married couples. :)
Don’t lower your standards, ladies.
This is one of my favorite love songs.
Anonymous said: What was your favorite song as a child?
I love this question. I had to think about it for awhile.
My dad gained access to a CD burner in 1995, which was a pretty big deal at the time. It took over an hour to burn 80 minutes of music, and that doesn’t count the time it took to rip the songs (or download them) to the computer in the first place. He made a mix CD for my mom and asked me if I wanted one. I just wanted a CD of "I am Stretched on Your Grave" by Sinéad O’Connor repeated over and over. I was in kindergarten at the time.
Years later I’d find out that the addictive drum loop is a slowed-down version of the Amen Break, which I am still endlessly fascinated by.
One of my favorite songs, but I could never listen to it in the presence of another person without blushing to death.
I know I’ve posted this song before, but I’ve been listening to it on repeat today and the story is hitting me especially hard… the terrifying unknown of a year in space and the unanticipated tragedy of finding that all of your loved ones have aged more quickly on Earth… and are now dead.
For my life still ahead, pity me.

Queen - Great King RatThe Great King Rat was born and died today- the 21st of May
This started out as one of my least favorite Queen songs (something about “Great King Rat was a dirty old man / And a dirty old man was he” irritated me) but now it’s one of my favorites. All of Freddie’s compositions grow on me over time.
"Je N’Attends Plus Personne"—Françoise Hardy (1964)
Whenever I hear those first guitar riffs I think it’s going to be a hard rock song and not pretty Françoise.
