Tal Weiss

fashions her intimate, poetic, oddly child-like songs from the bare minimum of resources. The Israeli’s lyrics are haiku-like and seemingly designed to work sonically as well as narratively. With Weiss less is definitely more.

a song that reminds you of school
Pixies - Hey
Blur - Girls And Boys
best Beatles song
The Beatles - Because

Becaue of the vocal harmonies. 

best concert you ever attended
Faith No More

In Tel Aviv, 1995. The vocal performance of Mike Patton left me speechless. 

a song guaranteed to make you feel depressed

Any song by Sting will do the work.

record you were looking for the longest
The Churchills - Open Up Your Eyes

The original vinyl edition of The Churchills' self-titled debut album from 1968. Still the best psych album from Israel (no competition there… ) and one of the best psychedelic albums anywhere. Ridiculously rare and sought after.

perfect song to end a party with
John Cage - 4:33
a record you fell in love to
Love - Forever Changes
first record you remember
Poogy - Poogy Be'Pita (Poogy In A Pita-Bread)

One of the Israeli records my father had in his record collection. As a child I used to listen to it over and over again. I was enchanted by the humor and the fun feeling in this album. «Poogy» (in Israel they were known as «Kaveret» – a beehive) were probably the most important and successful Israeli band in the mid 70's.

the song to be played at your funeral
Michael Bloomfield - See That My Grave Is Kept Clean
a song that evokes the greatest summer of your life
Frente! - Marvin The Album
The Turtles - The Turtles Present The Battle Of The Bands
your guilty pleasure song
The Buggles - Video Killed The Radio Star

And there are plenty more… 

your ultimate heartbreak song
Henry Purcell - Dido's Lament

«When I am laid in earth» from Henry Purcell's opera – «Dido and Aeneas». A Baroque most simple but heart-rending aria on a beautiful ground bass. 

your party anthem
Mulatu Astatke - Ethiopiques Vol. 4 (Ethio Jazz & Musique Instrumentale, 1969-1974)
first record you bought
The Beatles - Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band

After learning «Abbey Road» by heart as a child, (without understanding a single word), I began playing the trumpet. «Sgt. Pepper» was the first attraction.

a song that reminds your friends of you
Tunng - Tale From Black
best soundtrack ever
Harry Nilsson - The Point
Benoit Charest - The Triplets Of Belleville

Accidently, both are charming animated movies too. 

your sunday morning song
Joanna Newsom - Emily

A through-composed ballade that sounds like nothing else. And I love Joanna's devilish-sweet high-pitched voice. In Israel it's Saturday, by the way.
