Track 1 from Howl

Year: 2005
Track Description:
This is the opening song to 'Howl'. It's really good stuff. The start is really strong, the band members sing 'Time won't save our souls' repeatedly, without any instruments.

Track 3 from Animal Lover
Length: 00:04:24
Year: 2005
Track Description:
This one was the first thing that came to my mind about animals. This is not my favourite Residents album, but I really like the concept of it. It's based on animal sounds and animal mating - accordingly to the eyeball. I almost touched the eyeball four years ago. That could be one of the most intense moments in my whole short life.

Track 2 from Dead Hills
Length: 00:05:46
Year: 2002
Track Description:
I had to look up 'felony' on wikipedia to know what it was. I'm so foreign. This song makes me feel so cold inside, I think I could easily commit some major crimes. It cuts through your brain like ... brain surgery equipment.

Track 11 from Segundo
Length: 00:04:20
Year: 2003
Track Description:
I could have sex to this, but I only just turned sixteen and I have nevereven kissed a boy (or a girl). So don't rely on my knowledge for this one. Juana Molina is an Argentinian singer, and that's exactly where I'm going to in four months. So now, I really like everything Argentinian. If you like sweet Spanish voices with some tense guitar in the back, you should check this out.

Track 12 from Six Demon Bag
Length: 00:00:04
Year: 2006
Track Description:
This is already the second time I need to look up something on wikipedia. Who the fuck is Michael Bolton? He's not famous in this place, that's for sure. But looking at his discography, I suppose he likes his Sinatra. And he looks like his music is crap, according to google images. I'd rather not hear him cover any song. So I give him this: Fishstick Gumbo. It lasts four seconds, but the song actually only starts the second second. It's a little scream, and a slamming door. Wouldn't that be a perfect addition to this Bolton guy's oeuvre?

Track 3 from Natural

Year: 0000
Track Description:
I feel bad for even adding this to the database. Because it is utter crap. My sisters used to fight about Peter Andre, about who of the two was the Mysterious Girl he's singing about. And he used to have hair that looked like...a spiderweb. Or whatever. It was very very unpleasant to look at. He's married to Jordan the porn actress with the big boobies, and they are having sex.

Track 1 from No Es Lo Mismo
Length: 00:06:04
Year: 0000
Track Description:
Alejandro! He's my guilty pleasure. You know, he's the guy who sings with Shakira in 'La Tortura'. He's very big in Spain and in Latin America. So I was totally turned on by his voice in 'La Tortura', so at the sales I bought two of his cds for ... not a lot of money. It turns out he doesn't sing any hot songs, only emotional ballads. I don't like ballads, I hate them. But I'm weak, and Alejandro is so hot. This song lasts a whopping six minutes, which is a lot for a song like this. I have no idea WHAT he is singing. That might be the thing, I can invent stories about what he's singing. He's hot and he sings in Spanish. Yess. I could talk about him all day long. (God, this is so wrong)

This is a hard one for me, because I don't listen to a lot of older music...But there is one I could think of. Django. He played mostly in the 40s and the 50s I think. And he's Belgian! And he produces the most magical sounds with that guitar of his...

Length: 00:05:05
Year: 1999
Track Description:
Takako Minekawa is a female japanese singer, she mostly makes soft, electronical songs. And she sings. About cats and other ordinary things in life. It's goooood. But it gets even better if you add some electronic Cornelius beats. Cornelius is awesome. So if you combine Cornelius with something that's already good, it gets even better! By the way, Takako and Cornelius are married. They make a great musical couple!

Track 6 from Post-War
Length: 00:04:00
Year: 2006
Track Description:
I'm cheating a bit on this one, because the last album I purchased was a Jules Verne audiobook. That's not very appropriate mixtape material. But this is: Post-War by M. Ward! It's a really great album. M. Ward and his americana-ish stuff gives me the chills. This song has a beautiful hook:

What would you do with the pieces of a broken heart?

Isn't that the most beautiful thing you've ever heard? Well, to me it is.

Year: 2005
Track Description:
I only recently discovered Fantômas. I had to, because I had just watched the French movie with the same title, and I remember there was a band with the same name. This whole album drives me crazy. This song reminded me of my old Nintendo console the minute I heard it.

It's not what you would expect with such a title. It sounds a bit sad. A slow beginning, the voices join in very late. It's good shit, but not hot shit. It reminds me vaguely of oceans and fish, for no reason at all.

'Sometimes it feels like I'm made of eggshell, and it feels like I'm gonna crack.'
Those lyrics get me everytime. I'm still in what the americans would call highschool, and when I feel blue I put on this album, and I'll still feel blue. Yeah, that's kind of sad. This song has all of my teenage girl frustrations in it.

Long before being knocked up with Eddie Murphy's illegitimate child, Scary Spice was on top of the world. Now, she's nothing but washed up. It's kind of sad, really. Just by scoring third place in this contest, you've got infinitely more street cred than Scary. Congrats!
