50ish Recent Songs

50ish recent songs, mostly chosen by my phone. BONUS: a link to a full length feature film! Not a good film, but still: film!

Distant Sky – Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds
Gerson’s Whistle – Yeasayer

I Should Have Known Better – She & Him

Remember that time you wanted a folky cover of a Beatles song done by Zoe Deschanel? Well, here it is!

America – Simon and Garfunkel
…Something Like That – Airline Food
The Coast – Paul Simon
Sa Trincha – Smell of Paradise
Feed me to the Lions – Adam and The Ants

I’m Not There – Sonic Youth

Because when you think “Sonic Youth” you immediately think “Bob Dylan covers.”

Concerto in A – Sicilienne – Telemann
Harm – The Munitors
Catch The Rainbow – Tokyo Ska Paradise Orchestra

It’s Too Quiet – John Frost
This is actually a New Detective sketch from KROQ. I used to love these, but now the silly fun is muted by the casual racism of “Socky, the little foreign office boy.”

Reckless – Liam Finn
Hot Car – Being Dead
The Greys – Frightened Rabbit

Israel – Miles Davis

Y’like JAZZ?

Baby Hallelujah – Konradsen
The Balance – Royal Tongues
Naima (alternate take) – John Coltrane
The Loved Ones – Elvis Costello and the Attractions

Van Morrison – U.T.A. Texas Hall – Dec 13, 1973 – Radio Commercial
I have a bunch of these old commercials. I love hearing stuff like “Come see Van Morrison. Tickets are five bucks at the door.”

Class System (featuring Pharrell Wiliams & Julee Cruise) – Handsome Boy Modeling School
Catch 22 – Send Dudes
Born to Run – Bruce Springsteen
Love Will Tear Us Apart – Joy Division

My first time watching this video is the official starting point of my Jane Wiedlin crush.

Yoshimi Battles The Pink Robots Pt. 1 – The Flaming Lips

Little Green Bag – George Baker Selection

Triple Terror Show ad 2 – Commercial

This is an ad for three grindhouse films: Blood of Ghastly Horror, Naked Evil, and The Gorilla Gang. Youtube actually has the full movie of Blood of Ghastly Horror. If that’s too much time to invest in a crappy film, at least watch the trailer for Gorilla Gang. It’s magical.

The full ding-dong movie!
“Evilcolor” appears to be the same as “Black and White.”
I think this really happened.

The Distance – Cake
Fleetwood Mac – Kansas – Memorial Aud. – May 19, 1975 – Rock Show Commercial
Try – Delta 5
Walkinonit – J Dilla
Sweet And Lovely – Thelonious Monk Quartet with John Coltrane
