Which song do you listen to when...
you feel like 2000?
Greenday - Time Of Our Lives

Played at every monumental celebration during the final year of high school. This includes sentimental slide shows at graduation, final song at senior prom, etc.

you try to stay up for more than 24 hours?
The Knife - Heartbeats

Lively enough, but I can slowly rock back and forth to it when I'm twenty hours in.

you come home from the club?
jj - Let Them

This would be a great song if I had fallen in the club, or started a fight.

you take a bubble bath?
Tom Waits - Alice

This song is so beautiful and still and repeat worthy.

you sit by a camp fire?
Ellen McIlwaine - Can't Find My Way Home (Steve Winwood cover)

A song I have wanted to cover for a while.

you prepare a candle light dinner?
Jeff Buckley - Everybody Here Wants You

Sexy sauté.

you go to a club?
Lee Fields - Ladies

Few songs make me go 'crazy', like this one. This is as «club» as I get. Best part: «I bet your man is pleased right down to his knees».

you run naked through a cornfield?
The Flaming Lips - Do You Realize??

Happy time!

you prepare for an important date?
Jamie Lidell - When I Come Back Around

Look out! Here I come!

you want to disturb your neighbours?
Ben Folds Five - Song For The Dumped

Whatever and Ever Amen gets me singing and dancing, like I've never sung and danced before.

you drive a car late at night?
Cousteau - Last Good Day Of The Year

This song reminds me of my first car, and driving around with an old friend that introduced me to this band.

you drive into the country?

This guy made one record in 1969 and then disappeared in the desert.

«It's what you did that belongs to everyone».

you make love?
Bernice - Pacemaker

This song could easily get my clothes off.

you sit in a plane?
The Radio Dept. - Heaven's on Fire

In reality, heaven being on fire while on a plane would be terrifying. But...

you rob a bank?
Good Friday - Why?

This song is bad ass. And the guitar gives me robbing momentum.

you smuggle diamonds?
Genesis - Just A Job To Do

And after I smuggled all the diamonds, I'd persuade Phil Collins to marry me (a fantasy I had when I was eight years old).

you have to spend a night in a spooky hotel?
Greg Foat Group - Time Piece 1 (Harpsichord Bugalu)

Every spooky hotel needs some psychedelic harpsichord.

you stay in bed?

«I don't want to work but I don't want to sit around all day frowning».

 

you sit in the subway?
Bibio - Wake Up!

Some happy thoughts to help me wake up.
