Top Five Songs of the Week!

Although this afternoon's weather was rainy, cold and dreary, it was perfect for staying inside and watching a movie. I chose an old favorite, Vanilla Sky, that not only is impressive in a visual sense, but in a musical sense as well. Thanks to Cameron Crowe, this movie has probably one of the most eclectic and solid soundtracks of the past 10 years (and, yes, that is quite the statement). Being reminded of just how much I love the songs played throughout Vanilla Sky, I included a couple in this Week's Top Five Songs:

5. [Mp3] Peter Gabriel - Solsbury Hill Inspires such nostalgia...

4. [Mp3] Badly Drawn Boy - The Shining (Avalanches Remix) Another one good for the sake of nostalgia, but with a more uplifting essence

3. [Mp3] Familiar Trees - Migration Should be on one of those Chillout compilations that I'm such a sucker for!

2. [Mp3] Radiohead - Everything in its Right Place Never gets old, despite the fact that the same five words (make that twenty-five words, thanks Ryan) are sung throughout the song's entirety

1. [Mp3] Sambassaduer - Marie Gotta love that shoejangle ;)

Bonus: [Mp3] Neko Case - Buckets of Rain (Bob Dylan cover)

excellent list

but thom totally sings "yesterday i woke up sucking on a lemon" and "there are two colors in my head" and "what was that you tried to say" too

ALSO

vanilla sky is like the best movie ever until the last 20 minutes, which makes me want to hulk up and destroy things
