Get Me Away From Here, I’m Dying  performed by Belle & Sebastian  1996
Recommended by Carrie [profile]

Ooh, get me away from here, I'm dying,
play me a song to set me free..

Alternative folkish. The lyrics are kind of random, which I like. I like the general feeling of this song.

from If You're Feeling Sinister, available on CD

Christmas Steps  performed by Mogwai  1999
Recommended by anewyorkminuet [profile]

The one bright spot among the dismal stain on Mowai's career, the album known as Come On, Die Young. A web of brooding guitars initially mesmerizes you, before throwing you into an ominous and chaotic crescendo. It's the ideal soundtrack for driving alone on an open straightaway at night, going faster than you should be, and not at all caring...

from Come On, Die Young, available on CD (Matador)

Piazza, New York Catcher  performed by Belle & Sebastian  2003
Recommended by executiveslacks [profile]

This is such a pretty song. With just an acoustic guitar and voice, it could've easily sounded like any other folk song, yet I find something incredibly endearing about it.
Lyrically, it's a love story interrupted with baseball imagery (very strange for a Scotsman to display an understanding of the sport).

from Dear Catastrophe Waitress, available on CD (Rough Trade)

Try To Understand  performed by Lulu  1965
Recommended by jeanette [profile]

Lulu has inflicted on the world many crimes against music, politics and fashion but gets into the pearly gates of musical heaven on the basis of this track. One of her early Decca sides, it's raw and heartfelt, and (despite her tender age at the time) a mature, original view of love.

from the single Try To Understand (Decca F.12214)
available on CD - The Girls' Scene (Deram)

La Noche Inventada  performed by Ana D  2003
Recommended by megara [profile]

El mejor cover hecho de Family. Del disco incluido en Rockdeluxe Dic. 2003 es el track más valioso.
La canción por si sola es absolutamente hermosa. En su sencillo pop, Family creo un mundo plateado que ahora Ana D texturiza.

from Homenaje a Family
