The Decemberists "16 Military Wives" Picaresque

You have to hand it to iTunes--it doesn't just play songs, it predicts the weather with the very first cut (although I post this list on Friday, I compile it Thursday night). And a bunch of people's better known songs, too. Interesting week that ends mighty strong.

Will Oldham, "The Spider’s Dude is Often There" Guarapero
The Cardigans, "Heartbreaker" First Band on the Moon
Mark Olson and the Creek Dippers, "Nerstrand Woods" December’s Child
Yo La Tengo, "Mama Told Me Not to Come" Yo La Tengo is Murdering the Classics
Lisa Germano, "Phantom Love" Geek the Girl
Sparklehorse, "Tears on Fresh Fruit" Vivadixiesubmarinetransmissionplot
Johnny Dowd, "God Created Woman" Pictures from Life’s Other Side
Sparklehorse, "Happy Place" Distorted Ghost
The Blind Boys of Alabama, "The Last Time" Spirit of the Century
Calexico, "Crumble" Feast of Wire

Bonus: Lambchop, "Thick" Is a Woman

I think this is the first Mark Olson track to break into my list, and it's a beauty. A couple of other songs of interest got in there with it -- including a fun Yo La Tengo courtesy of George -- but overall I'm in a bit of a rut again. iTunes is missing vast swathes of my collection and hitting on a lot of the same stuff.

A perfectly cromulent list there. (especially the Johnny Cash Unearthed track). Well done sir.

RIckey will have to check out this Thinking Feller's Union sometime. They sound fun.

Rickey--thanks for the compliment and making me look up cromulent. TFUL 282 can be pretty out there, but their songier songs take the noise and put it to tune's work.

Ahab, if you posted as anonymous, I'd guess your list was yours, indeed. But it's a fine list, so is that a problem?

Generik, lots of classic and classics this week. See you Sunday!

Hayden, "Hollywood Ending," Elk Lake Serenade
Drag the River, "Medicine," Closed
Joey Gilmore, "Can't Let Go," Best of Joey
Serge Gainsbourg, "Bonnie and Clyde," Initials Sg
Pavement, "Mussle Rock (Is a Horse in Transition)," "Kris Kraft," "Brinx Job" Wowee Zowee, Sordid Sentinals
Rilo Kiley, "Capturing Moods," The Execution of All Things
Califone, "Forty-One," Everybody's Mother
Guided by Voices, "Universal Truths and Cycles," Universal Truths and Cycles

Bonus: Crooked Fingers, "Every Dull Moment," Bring on the Snakes

Strange list, as it seems to be trying to make up for having skipped over Wowwee Zowie (picking three songs in a row) in favor of Slanted and Enchanted for many weeks. Other than that, this list features perhaps the most beautiful duet partner in history: Brigitte Bardot. Lots of variety in your lists, and I love your bonus, George.
