Top 12 Songs of the past while

"Phantom Limb" - The Shins
Actually, the whole new album is great.

"Intervention" - Arcade Fire
Can't wait til this is officially released. Here's a youtube clip with the audio.

"Dashboard" - Modest Mouse
I'm so out of the loop as I just found the other day that Johnny Marr joined them. Not often that 43 year old alternative gods join en fuego indie bands.

"Sleepwalk" - Santo & Johnny
Top 10 Instrumental.

"One of These Mornings"
- Moby
The version off the Miami Vice Soundtrack, not the one off Moby's album 18. 46 seconds longer and a better arrangement. The vocals are just as repetitive, but the tempo and key are way better in the Miami Vice version.

"Silent Places" - Baby Dayliner
I really wasn't sure what to think about this dude for the longest time, but now I know that this song is actually pretty kick ass. I can't find the lyrics on the 'net, I'll have to fix that. (Adrian Grenier "Vincent Chase" of Entourage is in that video, fyi.)

"The Revolution Will Not Be Televised" - Gil Scott-Heron (youtube link)
"There will be no pictures of pigs shooting down brothers on the instant replay."

"You Get What You Give" - New Radicals (youtube video)
" Fake computer crashes dining
Cloning while they're multiplying"

"Feeling Good"
- Nina Simone
I love the horns and strings in this song. The only thing that's better is Nina's voice. That last fadeout Feelin Gooooooooooooooooooood... So awesome...
(no clue what this video is about, but here it is.)

"Somewhere Across Forever" - stellastarr
"Blue eyes, blue hair, not going to leave here without you
Blew my chances, chances, chances..."

"Goodbye Horses" - Q Lazzarus
Such an awesome song. Too bad it's sorta ruined by the Buffalo Bill treatment.

"Just Like Heaven" (acoustic) - The Cure
A great song, totally stripped down. Anybody know when it was recorded? Sounds like it was the same sessions as the original, but I"m not sure.

Extra bonus song for Valentine's Day: Not the best quality, but a great song nonetheless, Valentine by The Replacements sung by Paul Westerberg.
