Azure Blue  performed by Laika and the Cosmonauts  1995
Recommended by delicado [profile]

My obsession with this band continues. From a CD that failed to sell on ebay for 50 cents comes this amazing cut - a beautiful instrumental with prominent guitar and organ. While it's surf influenced, it goes beyond that. I'm kind of lost for words, but it's one of those 'This is the best track ever' tracks. You know what I mean?

from The Amazing Colossal band (Upstart Upstart 010), available on CD

Only the Good Die Young  performed by Billy Joel  1995

The lyrics definitely required thought- they use figurative language. The tune to this song stays stuck in your head, but you're never upset. It's always good and it's just an amazing song.

available on CD - The Essential Billy Joel

It’s Still Rock and Roll To Me  performed by Billy Joel  1995

A little similar to Only the Good Die Young, but still fun and still quite good.

We Didn’t Start the Fire  performed by Billy Joel  1995
Recommended by ajhorse21 [profile]

This song was written because Billy Joel heard a little kid say that he felt sorry for the older generation because they didn't live through anything big. We Didn't Start the Fire totally disproves this fact, in the meantime creating a fantastic song.

theo b  performed by sunny day real estate  1995

the song starts out with three crisp hi-hat clicks, the bell of a ride, then the drums and a sweet, warm toned bass lock in for a driving, mid-tempo, beautifully melodic cut time. guitars, once in, are clean-toned and somewhat polyphonically arranged, (that is, they play alot of single-note lines that swirl around each other, harmonizing at spots, and creating counterpoint). the vocals are potentially a little hard to swallow at first, jeremy has a tendency to sing a little through the nose, but it's really quite endearing. i personally find that after a bit of exposure to it, not only does it fit the music perfectly, but i really have grown to love it, (i listen to them ALOT).
this is one of those songs that you put on when you need to feel better- a kind of resolute, "well, time to go on, and hope for the best" feel. it can also easily be listened to when in a great mood. best listened to outside, looking at the sky.
when listening to ANY sunny day real estate, you must be patient. it's patient music, and it requires a certain amount of consideration that keeps it from being good "background music."
i fucking love this stuff.

from lp2 (the pink album) (sub pop sp316b)
