    Oh, the Yann Tiersen is excellent, and it’s on the Amelie soundtrack which is lovely.

    Pandora just played Defaal Lu Wor by Wasis Diop, and I’m loving it:

    Cigarettes and Chocolate Milk is one of my favorite songs. So quirky!

    Samson is probably my favorite “emotional relationship” song ever. EVAR.

    good pick!

    18 year old son Riley introduced me to Regina Spektor, beyond the songs of hers I knew.

    ah… I love Regina. And that song is amazing.. Rock on Maggie! Love the mix-tapes!

    Two of the five are on my top ten list. What a good week!

    Big, big fan of Cigarettes and Chocolate Milk. It’s the only Rufus song I know besides his version of “Hallelujah” from Shrek. (I’m so cosmopolitan.)

    I don’t know you, Kat Sanford, but I think you’ve stolen my iPod…! Nice choices!

    I think this is my favourite mix tape so far.

    I am currently drinking sangria and loving this Spektor girl. Well done Mrs. Mason.

  • Kat Says:

    Why, thank you, Gillian. I have more if you want them.

  • Cora D Says:

    I love, love, love Samson by Regina Spektor – one of the best songs ever. “You are my sweetest downfall…”

  • Laura Mayes Says:

    Cigarettes and Chocolate Milk is one of my favorite songs of all time.

  • jenieros Says:

    I also love Regina Spektor’s Samson. Will come up with own favorites and send you.

  • Lizzy Says:

    I think I might have happened upon something that you might like to add to your Life List! Or at least something that looks pretty cool if you haven’t done it already.

    Sounds amazing. If only I lived in SF rather than Manchester…

  • Courtney Says:

    Alligator by Tegan and Sara… anything by them would be fun to add to your list :) I live at the N/W corner of the US, so we get a lot of Canadian stations here :)
