"A NERVOUS TIC MOTION OF THE HEAD"
(from 2005's "Andrew Bird & the Mysterious Production of Eggs" album)

"A song with "everything on it" and one of the best live performances I've seen. The multi-talented, multi-instrumental Bird seemed like a god at this moment in time. Such a genius musician."

"ODE TO LRC"
(from the 2007 album "Cease to Begin")

"Such a great sound this band has and such a unique, distinct voice by band leader Ben Bridwell. "Ode to LRC" is a sing aloud song of power and grace."

"HANG ME UP TO DRY"
(from the 2006 album "Robbers & Cowards")

"With a song as energetic and brawny, Cold War Kids were destined for stardom. "Hang Me Up to Dry" is more than a pop-rock song when the day was over, the catchy riff, the punchy lyrics and that out of sync piano spelled originality amid its popularity."

"STRANGE"
(from the 2001 album "Ancient Melodies of the Future")

"I don't care if it sounded like a song by the "Pixies," listening to "Strange" makes my hair stand up what with Doug Martsch's repeatedly singing the word "strange." It's not at all strange, the song is anthemic for all the strange reasons." "

People who added this item 84 Average listal rating (84 ratings) 7.7 IMDB Rating 0
"OXFORD COMMA"
(from the 2008 album "Vampire Weekend")

"A catchy college song that starts with "who gives a fuck..."


geojones100's rating:
"CAT HEAVEN"
(from the 2002 album "Perfecting Loneliness")

"Everytime I listen to this song...kinda gives hope to a gray day."



"LUCKY NUMBER NINE"
(from the 2001 album "The Moldy Peaches")

"No other song brings fun than "Lucky Number Nine" and what a funny dance video. The simplicity of the song and the crazy lyrics make for a nunplussed first experience, of course, with a smile."

"ALIEN CHRIST"
(from the 2007 album "The Meaning of 8")

"UNDER THE TRACKS"
(from the 2001 album "Take Back the Universe and Give Me Yesterday")

"Under the Tracks" is evidence that there are many good songs out there that should've had more radio airplay. This is a wonderful, easy to listen to tune."

"NYC"
from 2002's "Turn on the Bright Lights" Album

"FLOAT ON"
from 2004's "Good News For People Who Love Bad News" album

geojones100's rating:
"MYRIAD HARBOUR"
(from the 2007 album "Challengers")

"THE GREATEST"
(from the 2006 album "The Greatest)

"Chan Marshall (aka Cat Power) is such a beautiful, mesmerizing artist. That voice..the way she sings and conduct herself...she's heaven with a microphone. If there's an afterlife, please let it be nights with her singing."


geojones100's rating:
"POLICE SWEATER BLOOD VOW"
(from the 2006 album "Bitter Tea")

"Fiery Furnaces is a brother-sister duo who make magical studio recordings. The talent is evident with this well-made song."


People who added this item 108 Average listal rating (108 ratings) 6.6 IMDB Rating 0
"SUCH GREAT HEIGHTS"
(from the 2003 album "Give Up")

"The song builds up to an ecstasy with electricity, those electronic sounds, the droning bass. Who wouldn't love this song?"

"WE WILL BECOME SILHOUETTES"
(from the 2003 single "Such Great Heights" by the Postal Service)

"The Shins acoustic version of the Postal Service's hit is more energetic and celebratory and may even surpass the original in fan preference."


geojones100's rating:
"LOVER'S SPIT"
(from the the 2002 album "You Forgot It In People")

"The "IT" song of the Canadian indie scene. A song of epic proportions--a grand finale during concerts."

"A melancholic song from a melancholic band.

Such a brilliant composition.
"LAZY EYE"
(from the 2006 album "Carnavas")

"Lazy Eye" is a fine mixture of vocal ranges, with an egregious, angry bit that's so kick-ass. The song cascades into an explosion."

(from the 1999 album "The Fidelity Wars")
