Monday Music: the “curled up to fizzing summer rain, call back later” edition

It’s good to be home. I know I talk about wanting to re-join Western civilization as soon as possible, but it’s good to be home.

Raindrops – Basement Jaxx
Gig – Rawski
God Bless the Child – Billie Holiday
Come Pick Me Up – Ryan Adams
Bad (live from Live Aid) – U2 [say what you want about U2, bu that performance? Holy God]
It’s Over – Beta Band
Same Old Innocence – Architecture in Helsinki
All Along the Watchtower – Bob Dylan
I’ll Remember – Madonna
Near to You – A Fine Frenzy

I know that you might lose respect for me or whatever (but that was going to happen one of these days anyway), but this video is totally what I am in the mood for right now (and on many other nights as well):

It’s a great song, and Hugh Jackman and Famke Janssen are great as well. “Almost Lover” is one of those songs I can never turn off. Once it’s on, it has to play until the end. Always. I guess it has something to do with the very vivid story it tells.

  1. Logan and Jean! *squee* *flail*

    I’m not being sarcastic, I love them. I’m a melancholy guy: Not a great many things make me really smiley, but Jean and Logan is one of them.

    What do people have against U2 anyway? I once told a guy I liked U2 and he looked at me like I had grown an ass on top of my head. He was a very big Blur fan, I’m not sure if that’s related or not.
