Seriously. Do the French even have a need to say, "Bitch, please!" Because...come on, they're French. Their Gallic hauteur needs no Bitch, please. They predate Bitch, Please. Which brings me to the inevitable - do the Scandanavians have Bitch, please?

Clearly this is something that can only happen in America.

I have a tiny get recced post. So tiny you can fit it on a spoon! Or a zip file!

this is mostly due to the fact that 75% of my belongings (ie, music collection) is still in the backyard patio, tied up in white trash bags. Nothing makes you feel like you belong somewhere than having most of your stuff wrapped up in trash bags and boxes! The written star links are place holders for when I actually find my cds again so I can rip the tracks. Or you can look around...or buy the album. Really, they're worth it.

Note: never, ever redo the carpet in a week during the school year.

from Elizabethtown, aka the Movie I still haven't seen, but quite enjoy the soundtrack to (I have quite a lot of those movies, where I never end up watching the movie, and just have the soundtrack, but I probably will see this movie soon, just because there's more music to track down)

"Don't I hold you" - Wheat (OST version)

Don't I hold you* - Wheat (Hope & Adams album version)

I've loved this Wheat song for a few years now, ever since I found it on an ACOUSTIC compilation, and it turned me on to their music. The original version is much more dreamy and slower paced than this version, and I prefer the album vocals to the OST version - the former is more wistful and gentle, the OST is some petulant guy getting all whiny over gorgeous melodies. Not that I don't love it in a different way. I guess they need the more uptempo version for affect, but I do love the original. I imagine this would be Drew singing to Claire.

"io (This Time Around)" - Helen Stellar

Never heard of this person/band before, now must track down all of their stuff and buy suitable headphones to listen to them with. I love that stargazing quality to this song.

"Ring of Fire" - Johnny Cash (San Quentin)

No explanation needed. I'm looking forward to seeing Joaquin Phoenix play The Man in Black.

precious* - Depeche Mode (Playing the Angel, or as I like to call it, PTA)

"Destroy everything you touch" - Ladytron (the Witching Hour)

so hot, they're ice hot.

16, maybe less* - Calexico with Iron and Wine (Lay in the Reins)

Oh god. His voice. THIS SONG HAS A MILLION NOVELS WRITTEN ALL OVER IT. Or maybe just one, and it's a sad one with rodeo clowns and bar room fights, but it would be an awesome novel. Off of one of the best releases I've heard all year.

"song beneath the song" - Maria Taylor (11:11)

Maria Taylor from Azure Ray's solo debut. Conor Bright Eyes does backing vocals.

Catbird Seat* - The Silent League (the orchestra, sadly has refused)

Dafna linked a awesome music video with this song, and I bought the full length. Haven't listened to all of it, this is a grower album.

"Exodus Damage" - John Vanderslice (Pixel Revolt)

Anyone who manages to fit in Dance Dance Revolution into their song lyrics is my personal hero.

the full completed zip should be posted sometime this weekend or on Monday, but feel free to download it now

I am in love with 'Sixteen Maybe Less.' I loved the demo version, but I think I may like the version Sam does with Calexico even more. The entire I&W and C collaboration album is gorgeous.

Eeee, Catbird Seat! Love that song! There's even a music blog named after it.

I think Sixeyes was doing a multi-part interview with John Vanderslice recently. My favorite song of his is 'Pale Horse,' although 'Speed Lab' is great, too.

how do you say, Bitch, please! in French?

You DON'T! Which is a shame because it's such a good expression. And God knows I'd like to use it on my Literature professor on Monday -- I'll spare you the details, but it could get ugly.

And 'yay' for the newest get recced. :)

I find 'espece de veche' useful where bitch would previously have served :)

We don't. Unfortunately.
