Our Life is Not a Movie or Maybe by Okkervil River

If you've been around here long enough, you probably already have this. It is (maybe) my favorite song of all time. It's perfect; evocative, cinematic, gorgeous lyrics with epic vocals, rockin' beats, and a splash of 80's pizazz. I love everything about it and when I'm having a bad day I throw it on, turn it up to 11, and dance around my room like a giant spaz. I want to write something inspired by it one day.

Orphans, Kingdoms by Brooke Fraser

This is my favorite song at the moment. I really like this new style of pop/folk that uses foggy percussion; it creates a very specific tone that touches me. She has a lovely voice, too.

Oh Me, Oh My by Abigail Washburn

A delicate love song. It reminds me of rain (which we have in abundance these days). ♥

Once In The Prairie Tall Grass by Peter Ostroushko

A beautiful piece of instrumental music from the soundtrack for a historical documentary about Minnesota. I love the way sweeping string pieces have come to represent the American Experience.

Obstacles by Syd Matters

I think they're using this song in a Ford car commercial these days. I like the fake choir effect--it reminds me of a Karan Ann song--and the memory-feel of it.

Gonna download these tomorrow when I'm more awake. I could use some new folksy stuff on my iPod.

Hope you enjoy!

Heh, Sammy doesn't look nearly as pleased with the possibility of new folk. ;P

I didn't have three of these - which I have now rectified. ;) Thank you! ♥ I was going to write explanations for mine but I'd taken so long to choose I'd run out of time. *g*

Randomly, what you wrote about the prairie tall grass made me want to be reading my Lewis and Clark book SO BAD. Grr, argh.

Yay, new music! ♥ Apparently, I cannot make a music post without talking about it. :P

My Mom finished that L&C book recently and really loved it. I'm thinking I will pick it up after I finish Ghost Medicine & Edgar Sawtelle. Oh dear, I still need to do book club post for Little Bee.
