So like I posted after the summer, I've been rounding my new music into seasonal playlists - the season is just a coincidence, when I happen to discover or rediscover some music.
I tended to get music in big chunks this fall, as I ran into some CDs I had forgotten to rip back when I did the bulk transfer to MP3s...
The first few songs listed I particularly like, the stuff from Portugal is great as well.
I made some fun discoveries hunting up videos for these, like how you can find old Beavis + Butthead music videos on youtube, and the Goops/Mallrats "Buttercup".
- Laughing With (Regina Spektor) --Man, what a beautiful song. Weirdly I got kinda misty just listening to the opening chords right now.
- Bubbles (Jess Yoakum) --glad to find this video - bad audio but I love the cd version of this song, worth getting
- I Can Transform Ya (Chris Brown featuring Lil Wayne & Swizz Beatz) --man, love the core sound of this
- Kick, Push (Album Version) (Lupe Fiasco)
- Right Now (Na Na Na) (Akon)
- Sex On Fire (Kings Of Leon)
- Littlest Things [Explicit] (Lily Allen)
- The Impression That I Get [Explicit] (The Mighty Mighty Bosstones)
- Superstar (Radio Edit) (David May)
- Torn (Natalie Imbruglia)
- Things I (re)heard in or near Portugal...
- Crazy (DJ Mc Fear) --Awesome remix of a song I was reminded of in Portugal. Fun fact: Gnarls Barkley is not the name of a guy. Just the group.
- First Day of My Life (Bright Eyes) --I think this is the one I saw in a UK insurance ad - lovely, lovely.
- From a CD of Marcos' kids...
- Yahoo Video things
- "The Full Monty" soundtrack --somehow I forgot to rip this back in the day, though I've had it for a while.
- "Lesbian Favorites" --another disc I forgot to rip...
- Obsession (Fem 2 Fem)
- Swimming (Gretchen Phillips) --She's like Ellen but sweeter
- I Kissed A Girl (Jill Sobule) --link is Beavis+Butthead... still like this song better than Katy Perry's...
- Mrs. Brown You've Got a Lovely Daughter (Phranc) --fun little cover
- Just Keep Me Moving (k.d. lang)
- I Spent My Last $10.00 (On Birth Control And Beer) (Two Nice Girls) --an old favorite of Mo's, and funny.
- Twist In My Sobriety (Tanita Tikaram)

- Seventeen (Sponge)
- Smoke Two Joints (Sublime)
- Alive (Joey Lauren Adams) --from "Chasing Amy" to continue the Kevin Smith thing
