Friday Mixtape!

I’ve always wished I knew more about music, and this is part of my Life List project to listen to 1,000 new songs. Right now I’m up to 513, and on Fridays I share some of my new favorites. If you’d like to share some music with me, please send your picks to maggie at mighty girl dot com, and I will listen to them.

All of this music is from Tess Evans, who sent me a CD. I’ve been getting lots of CDs in the mail, and they make me so nostalgic and happy. Thanks to everyone who has sent one. You are rad.

Conversation 16 from The National
“I figured out what we’re missing
I tell you miserable things after you are asleep.”

Dominos from The Big Pink
“As soon as I love her it’s been too long.”

Summer Special from Land of Talk

Ambling Alp from Yeasayer

Trashcan from Delta Spirit

Don’t Bother Me from the Blakes

    Ambling Alp is an AMAZING song! I saw Yeasayer earlier this year and they were one of the best shows I’d seen live. They are just so full of energy; it infects the crowd and soon everyone is dancing with everyone and smiling. It’s pretty great. It helps that the bassist, Ira Wolf Tuton (whatta name!), is adorable too.

    Do check out their Take Away Show that they did in Paris, France. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8llsiEIvvM0

    My husband does a lovely version of “Dominoes” replacing the chorus with “These cookies are Oreos, Oreos”

    maggie, do you know about newnormalmusic.com? my 20 something kid neighbors love it and since they only play brand new music and no repeats, you can hit your 1000 new songs in no time, i’d imagine. it’s good.
