A bunch of Magnetic Fields songs: "1000,000 Fireflies"; "When You Were My Baby"; "The Saddest Story Ever Told"; and "Born On A Train". (Also check out cover of "Born on A Train" by The Cat's Miaow!)
A few weeks ago I listened to "Quick!" (from the recent LP) 20-30 times a day.  Cheesy

At this point I've listened to everything they've done up to 69 Love Songs, though I've only listened to Distortion since then -- I quite liked "California Girls" and "Too Drunk to Dream" but besides those songs I thought it was kinda hit-or-miss. Is their new album worth checking out?

Anyone here a fan of Guster?

I listen to about 10 of their songs I didn't care for any of them but I came across this song "Careful" and I'm obsessing on it. Do you have any other recommendations on their best songs?

The Beach Boys legacy is still being mortared to this day...it has a solid and unbreakable foundation of incredible songs that tower above most bands, yet some bricks are more brittle and ugly than others (even some bricks put down more recently)...thus is the nature of any entity that continues to exist. You are not defined solely by your good achievements in life, you're also defined by those unpleasant moments too. This law of life, thankfully, helps keep us all in check.

No thanks! I'll buy it one of these days.

I own most of Dylan's studio albums - for some reason I've never bought this one.

Van Morrison - The Way Young Lovers Do

I've been getting into Van Morrison recently and am really digging Astral Weeks. There's something about this song in particular that's so interesting.

This song was my way into Astral Weeks too. One of my favourite albums.

I posted earlier about the British contemporary of Dusty Springfield and Sandie Shaw, Kathy Kirby. There are three different clips at YouTube of a 45 she did in 1972, of the Paul Williams/ Roger Nichols song "Do You Really Have A Heart," apparently first recorded by Dobie Gray three years earlier. I came across it last week and have been playing it twice a day. The song and arrangement are much more contemporary-sounding that most of Kirby's other work I've heard, and the vocal is gentler, more sensual, than her usual approach...the timbre a bit like Dusty's, phrasing a bit like Karen Carpenter's.

Word. Have you heard Boots Of Spanish Leather, rab? It's beautiful.

As for me, this album gets a little less mileage (I love Bob goofin' off, so Freewheelin' or Another Side is more my style) but this is such a good album. Been going through a Bob phase lately.

Bloody love them - kinda sucks he didn't go in and demo much beyond 1964, really. A Witmark demo of Rolling Stone would be something to behold...
