The Wednesday Shuffle - Thursday Edition

Also known as the ‘I have the day off, baby is napping, coffee and bagel with cream cheese edition.’

1. Courage – Sarah Polley – her version of the Hip song, from the soundtrack to The Sweet Hereafter. I love this version.

2. Happiness Runs – Donovan. What? I used to be a hippie.

3. Ramalama (Bang Bang) – Roisin Murphy. Again. My current song addiction, and bumblebee does the cutest little bouncy dance to it.

4. All In Your Hands – Lamb. Does anybody else like this now-defunct band? Me and Chris loooved them – this was the first band that was ‘ours.’

5. High Tide or Low Tide – Ben Harper & Jack Johnson (live). Ben Harper and Jack Johnson doing Bob Marley? Together? I think I just had an orgasm.

6. Heartbeat – Annie. Recently discovered. She's Norse. Good stuff.

7. If I Were a Carpenter – Bobby Darin. This song reminds me of my dad. Love my dad.

8. Pinch Me – Barenaked Ladies. More Can-Con. Hated the ladies when everybody in grade 9 was wearing the ‘barenaked’ hats, but I like them now.

9. Undone - The Sweater Song – Weezer. Really, who doesn’t like Weezer?

10. Birthday – Sugarcubes. I shared a love of the ‘cubes with a boy in grade 12 who was very very awesome. We used to scale the fence into casa loma’s gardens for midnight picnics.

    Yeah, love Weezer. If you want really good cancon though, how about the Rheostatics? I want to get a children's album they made a few years ago, called something about Harmelodia?

    See, I just left a comment here, so we all have these malfunctions. Did not think you were spamming me, just thought something had messed up...have done it myself lots!
    What I said in my dissappeared comment was that I love the If I was a Carpenter by BD, he has such a rich voice.

    Also, a phoenix tattoo! Will you post a pic of it? You are soooo cool, it is an amazing symbol...would be interested in the story that led to that tattoo....hmmmm have I inspired a post (muah ha ha).

    As well

    used to be a hippie?
    I too love lamb. It reminds me of when Aura and I came to visit you. It also reminds me of when I came to visit you at a tender age when all we cared about was dancing and all we ate were sandwiches from your wicked sandwich maker.

    I liked most of their stuff, but them bought their most recent CD (I never buy music) and it sucks. :(

    I did buy new Audioslave and Rob Zombie... both are very pleasant. Also anything from the Clayton/Scott Group. Great Canadian Jazz (and I normally dislike jazz). This stuff is GREAT.

    Re: your comment on my blog... Belly dancing in Turkey in 98 sounds pretty cool... Any chance you might write (or already have written) about that?

    Man I love the SugarCubes.

    PS. I once belly-danced too. But sadly, not in Turkey.

    I want to hear that story.

    You've got great taste in music -- and I see some new names on here for me that I think I'll have to check out.

    Aaah, Weezer. I love me some Rivers Cuomo.

    sugarcubes, yes. delicious. right up there with the pixies.

    oh gawd I LOVED Lamb. That song of theirs - "Gorecki" I think it's called - it was a song of Matt & mine years ago. Haven't thought of them in years - thanks for the memory! I wonder what happened to them.

    Birthday is also one of my very very Sugarcubes songs. In fact, my first concert was them with New Order. Sigh.

    ahhh. the s'cubes. I love the song Eat the Menu, where she sings, bite a kiwi! and her voice cracks so prettily, in the middle of kiwi.

    Birthday is a really good song, too. it kinda gets me right here. *thumps chest*
