Track 1 from Transmission
Length: 00:03:25
Year: 1997
Track Description:
I love it because of the calypso guitar intro, but now it exists as the song that reminds me of Pierre-Luc, aka Pieu, my partner in cinematographic crime. We started hanging out thanks to our common love for the oeuvre of Kevin Smith. Towards the end of my first semester, he became my co-DJ and one of my best friends in college.

Track 1 from Boston
Length: 00:04:45
Year: 1990
Track Description:
My first lesson in musical humility. I had said "What? You’ve never head [insert song title here]?" to so many people so many times that it was bound to happen to me eventually. One night at Joel’s house, when Phil 2 was there, it happened with this arena-rock masterpiece. Phil 2 introduced it as "the song from which Nirvana stole the intro for ‘Smells Like Teen Spirit’."

Track 1 from Straight on Till Morning
Length: 00:04:44
Year: 1997
Track Description:
A quality opening track. During the early stages of my friendship with Joel, he inquired about what the hell that awesome song he heard was. I told him, he downloaded it, and I've come to find out that Joel, despite being above all a metal fan, is indeed a blues brother at heart.

Track 9 from Valley Of The Damned
Length: 00:05:22
Year: 2003
Track Description:
Joel discovered these guys while in Europe. He told himself he’d go into a record shop and buy an album from the band with the absolute worst name he could find. When he played it, he was blown away, as so was I when I heard it. With their anthemic vocals, soaring guitar harmonies and lightning-quick drumming, this English extreme-power-metal sextet has found a new pair of fans in Joel and I.

Track 8 from Cure for Pain
Length: 00:03:26
Year: 1993
Track Description:
I remember reading about this aural curiosity (sax, drums and a 2-stringed bass played with a slide) and immediately going out to get some songs. This one is the one that stuck. It’s incredibly hard for me to think of a song as “sexy”, but this comes really close. Pieu is a saxophonist himself, so I made him listen to this. He approved, although he noted that he didn’t play baritone sax like the guy in the song.

Track 3 from Tenacious D
Length: 00:04:10
Year: 2001
Track Description:
I knew of this band (the very funny Jack Black forms half of it, Kyle "KG" Glass is the other), but didn't really hear anything outside of “Fuck Her Gently”. Joel re-enacted a choreographed interpretation of the song as preformed by his friends (and my acquaintances) Scratch, Dim and Frank, which included lip-syncing and the fake-ripping of one’s shirt. Rock on!

Track 7 from Abbey Road
Length: 00:03:08
Year: 1969
Track Description:
My favourite Beatles song. I think of it as an antidote to the hundreds of songs about death, depression, heartache, fear, paranoia and rejection. How about a song about hope and perseverance? It’s on here as a reminder of an anecdote Joel told me about the emo girl who didn’t know who the Beatles or Elvis Presley was. Damn kids.

Track 6 from Licensed to Ill
Length: 00:03:14
Year: 1986
Track Description:
One thing hadn’t changed about rapper chicks in the high school/college transition: their ignorance towards EVERY other kind of music in existence. This song, to me, is the antidote to all the gangsta rap bullshit polluting the airwaves.

Track 1 from State Songs
Length: 00:01:23
Year: 1999
Track Description:
An instrumental band-organ jam only a guy like Linnell could write. This song, along with many other weird-ass songs, represents how relentlessly silly I can be. Helene is one of the few people who actually find my peculiar brand of eccentric silliness endearing and entertaining.

Track 5 from The Magic Numbers
Length: 00:04:51
Year: 2005
Track Description:
A sunny little ditty about adultery, I think. I remember being really pissed when I tried to put this CD on my computer. The fact is, I wasn’t able to because EMI had encoded the CD with some kind of anti-piracy thingy. Fuckers. This song routinely puts a smile on my face and makes me spontaneously clap my hands.

Track 3 from In The Aeroplane Over The Sea
Length: 00:03:22
Year: 1998
Track Description:
How perfectly appropriate that a song about being okay with the prospect of dying ends up being “our song”. I think it became our song when I played it on my show, with Helene by my side, and we both started singing the first verse at the same time. I bought her the CD for Christmas. In my opinion, it’s the greatest album ever.

Track 8 from Our Endless Numbered Days
Length: 00:03:26
Year: 2004
Track Description:
This is the first album I played for her. We were at my house, both very tired, and this seemed like the most ambient, soothing album I had. The banjo solo is heartbreakingly beautiful, and yet is only the second best solo on the record (the first being the mandolin solo on "Fever Dream"). For some reason, this track stuck out.

Track 2 from Pablo Honey

Year: 1993
Track Description:
She loves Radiohead. But why does a song about crippling self-loathing seem so damn appealing to someone how has a version of "Jingle Bells" where the tune is played via fart noises? I think it's so when she hears it, she has an excuse to hug me, because no matter what she thinks, I think she's nor a creep, nor a weirdo.

Track 6 from Spilt Milk
Length: 00:03:37
Year: 1993
Track Description:
Of all the damn songs that could have been going through my head when I lost my virginity, of all the tunes in existence, it had to be something that stuck out like a sore thumb. Vocal harmonies, twinkling keyboards…a perfect pop song. Not "Let’s Get It On" or "Can’t Get Enough Of Your Love, Babe" or any of the time-tested slow jams, but a pretty little Queen-meets-Beatkes pop song about artistic integrity. Good song, though.

Length: 00:08:45
Year: 2005
Track Description:
A nine-minute prog-style narrative (although the tempo only changes from 4/4 to 3/4 and then back) filled with more folksy guitar and accordion fills than you can shake a stick at. She took to this track like a duck to water, and quotes lines from it like it's nobody's business.
