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.
