5 Awesome Songs, Vol. 15: Guilty Pleasures

Leave a comment

I haven’t done a 5 Awesome Songs post in ages (just over a year, to be specific). So I’m going to do one today, because I’m bored and have nothing better to do. And this time, it’s all about guilty pleasures, i.e. songs that I’m ashamed to admit that I like. But this is the Internet, and I’m anonymous, so who gives a flying fuck, right? More

5 Awesome Songs: Vol. 14, “Earthy” Songs

Leave a comment

You know the kind of songs I’m talking about: songs with deep guitars; vaguely bluesy or folksy songs; songs that sound like they were built from the earth.

Good television often hasĀ  a good soundtrack. Here are 5 awesome songs that have been featured on television shows that I watch regularly, that I used watch regularly, or of which I once caught the tail end of an episode while flipping channels. More

5 Awesome Songs, Vol. 9: Love the Drum Machine

Leave a comment

A couple of years ago, I read an article that pissed me off. (Scroll down to the piece entitled “Ghost in the Drum Machine.”) Apparently, drum machines have no soul. Duh. They’re machines, you idiot! As a very belated “fuck you” to John Wood, I’ve compiled this list of 5 awesome songs that use drum machines. Trust me; they’re anything but soulless. More
