I felt like sifting through some of my favorite music today, and why not do it via youtube? Sorry about the random ads at the beginning of some videos.
Warning! Do not listen to the Nostalgic session if operating heavy equipment! 🙂
32 Flavors by Ani DiFranco. This one will probably get me some flak from, well, all guys everywhere, but Ani is pretty incredible in this live performance.
Hurt by Nine Inch Nails. Trent Reznor is creepy as hell in this performance, but in an awesome way.
The Funeral by Band of Horses. The song of a thousand visual sequences! Used in 127 Hours, Criminal Minds, Gossip Girl, FlashForward, Criminal Minds, Numb3rs, One Tree Hill, and Standoff. There’s a reason its use so prolific!
Winter by Tori Amos. Her piano-music writing skills are incredible. She is in an elite club of people who sound as good live as they do in the studio. Is it just me or does she start looking like Kaylee from Firefly? =-o
Percussion Gun by White Rabbits. One of my favorite songs of all time. Perfect to get me out of the stupor the last section of songs put me in.
