The blogs are alive with the sound of music

Jen tagged me.

So I went through allll the songs on my computer and made a new playlist of the ones I wanted to tell y'all about. It was 2.7 hours long and contained 44 songs. And I was thinking you probably didn't really want to wade through that many songs, even if they were all awesome choices. So I put them into helpful categories for you. What? You wanted less to read, not more? Sorry buddy, you came to the wrong place.


Veronica - Elvis Costello and Paul McCartney
Light Surrounding You - Evermore
How To Save A Life - The Fray
I Hear The Bells - Mike Doughty
We Used To Be Friends - Dandy Warhols

Heehee! I can connect three out of five of them to Veronica Mars.

Forever Young - Youth Group
Hallelujah - Rufus Wainwright
Set The Record Straight - Reef
I Knew I Loved You - Savage Garden
Angel Is A Centrefold - J Geils Band
Anything For You - Lee Harding
I Play Chicken - Cowboy Troy
Jericho - Hilary Duff
No Scrubs - TLC
Ordinary Girl - from 'Clueless'
Boys of Summer - DJ Sammy
Save Tonight - Eagle Eye Cherry

I could have done more Savage Garden. If you want...? No? Ok. No Scrubs is in there cos when I was in yr 11 or 12, my best friend and I used to drive around in her aqua-coloured little jeepy thing - I was on the 'passenger side of my best friend's ride'... get it? Don't email me about Hilary Duff.


Baba O'Riley - The Who
Ballade Pour Adeline - Richard Clayderman
1812 Overture - Tchaikovsky
Chariots of Fire - Vangelis

They're part of my 'essay-writing' playlist. They make the words flow.

Sweet Home Alabama - Lynard Skynard
Holy Grail - Hunters and Collectors


Happy Christmas (War Is Over) - John Lennon
Give Me The Beat Boys - Bob Segar
Sloop John B - Beach Boys
Twist and Shout - The Beatles
Cats In The Cradle - Cat Stevens
We Will Rock You - Queen
Paradise By A Dashboard Light - Meatloaf
Save The Last Dance For Me - The Drifters
Fernando - ABBA
Shut Down - Beach Boys

Or 'Old Songs' if you like.


Download This Song - MC Lars
American Idiot - Greenday
Spare Me The Details - The Offspring


Barbie Girl - Aqua
Basketball - Lil Bow Wow

The Time Of My Life - from 'Dirty Dancing'
A Whole New World - from 'Aladdin'

And so, there you have it.


  1. I love Mike Doughty... were you a fan when he was lead in Soul Coughing? I still listen to those old cds all the time. Soul Coughing was awesome.

    I like your other picks, very cool. I like the diversity... and I'm proud of you for admitting that you like Hilary Duff, so I thought I'd admit that I love Kelly Clarkson and purposely left her out of my list because I'm ashamed of my bubblegum-pop-addiction. And I also like those girls from the Disney channel, Aly and AJ. And OK NO MORE.

  2. Wish I could say yes, but I'm totally jumping on the bandwagon after the song was on Grey's and Veronica Mars.

    Way to come out of the bubblegum closet!

  3. i think i need to do another extended version, as well.
    i look at mine, and i'm like wait! my favorite band's aren't even in there!

    because i just don't have them in itunes, or whatever.

    soul coughing WAS awesome.
