The rumblings for the new Liz Phair album are pretty disheartening
I've been waiting for years for her to release something, but I'm a little skeptical. She's written some great songs, so why does she need to work with writers?
At this point I'd be happy if she released anything though.
For some I could pick a hundred songs, for others, one was a struggle. List from This is not an exit.
Sarah Harmer - Capsized ...reminds you of an ex-lover
Counting Crows - Raining In Baltimore ...reminds you of an ex-friend
Phil Collins - Against All Odds ...makes you cry
Corky and the Juice Pigs - Pandas ...makes you laugh
James - Laid ...makes you wanna dance
Mark Eitzel - Proclaim Your Joy ...makes you wanna run and jump
Jonathan Richman - You Must Ask The Heart ...reminds you of the one you want
Velvet Underground - After Hours ...reminds you of the one you love
Bob Dylan - Desolation Row ...you wish you wrote
The Watchmen - Beach Music ...you want to get married to
Nirvana - Aneurysm ...makes you wanna mosh
The Tragically Hip - Long Time Running ...sums up your teenage years
The Fall - Cruiser's Creek ...you like to wake up to
The Beatles - Yesterday ...you like from your parents' collection
Adorable - Homeboy ...you love to hear at clubs
The Dismemberment Plan - Gyroscope ...you love but wouldn't know if it wasn't for a friend
Cake - Short Skirt / Long Jacket ...whose video you love more than the song itself
Gene - Drawn to the Deep End ...reminds you of your first crush

Massive Attack - Angel ...makes you think of sea
Lucinda Williams - I Envy The Wind ...makes you think of being alone
Well my brilliant plan of waiting for the opening act (who I suspected was going to be No Doubt) to finish before getting tickets from scalpers has certainly been foiled. Turns out The White Stripes are opening for The Stones.
One of my favourite shows returns to television tonight. Ed ditched the Clem Snide theme music from last season in favour of the first season theme by the Foo Fighters.
I'm a sucker for anything small town related, it seems. What else could explain my love for Bruce Springsteen songs and Richard Russo novels?
F.'s band is playing tonight. They're going on pretty late, but I'll probably make the trip. Haven't gotten into Caban yet, so I'll just hope they have another 20% off sale before March.
I haven't really paid much attention to Frank Black's work since the Pixies called it quits but I'll probably try and catch one of his shows from his 5 night stint at the Shoe next month.
