It Sounds Dated 'Cause it's Old  

I've decided that I'm going to try to post all the songs I've quoted in 'Leadbelly'. I have no idea why, but I'm doing it backwards. I'll probably start going in the right direction soon. In the meantime, here are twelve more songs. As usual, you can download the folder via this link, if you're interested...

Leadbelly Music: 90-100

It's another weird mix of stuff. There are times when I pick songs based on the mood the music creates when I'm trying to write, and sometimes I pick songs based on the mood the lyrics create instead. Sometimes, if you actually try to listen to the one or two songs I quote while reading the chapter they're from, they just won't fold into eachother.

I decided to include the year each song came out, so when you listen to something you don't think, "Jesus, this sounds DATED." Instead you'll just think "Jesus, this girl's OLD."

Here's the tracklisting for this bunch. :)

In Liverpool - Suzanne Vega (1992)
Empire - Kasabian (2006)
Falling Slowly - Glen Hansard & Marketa Irglova (2007)
When the Lights Go Out - The Black Keys (2004)
Save it For Later - The English Beat (1982)
Killing the Light - Black Rebel Motorcycle Club (2007)
Slow Emotion Replay - the THE (1993)
So She's Leaving - The Trews (2006)
The Abandoned Castle of My Soul - The Gothic Archies (1997)
Hopes Go Astray - The Northern Pikes (1988)
Need Some Air - Black Rebel Motorcycle Club (2007)
The King is Half-Undressed - Jellyfish (1990)

Current Mood: blankblank
Current Music: This Too Shall Pass - Ok Go

I am kind of excited! I love song recs, but I've missed many of the music you've put up over time.

I'm glad! I've always liked sharing music with people. I take it very seriously -- like helping someone find just the right song might somehow improve their quality of life. ;)

I didn't realize how many BRMC songs I'd quoted until I started compiling all the songs.

By the way -- I thought I should mention that I really enjoyed 'Alice' and thank you for the recommendation. It had its problems, but I've watched it several times now and even thought about taking a break from Leadbelly to try my hand at writing a one-shot. I've also been toying with the idea of making a video for it. I have a song picked out, have it storyboarded in my head and everything. Now I just need to actually learn how to MAKE a video, which should take approximately a decade. :S

I have a vid idea storyboarded in my head, too! If I were so infernally busy, I'd be on that. Right now I'm just trying to write the second half of my longish one-shot informally called How Hatter Became A Real Boy.

I laughed when you made a point of mentioning that peeking into my mind was "a good thing". :D

Seeing you, bob5, Neviana and kenzier writing again makes me VERY happy, too. Especially these days when work's been such a bloody bore and I've been having such a rough time with my mental stuff. I love having quality stuff to read again. Now update, you! ;)
