The Rich Girls Are Weeping

30 May 2006

These are a few of [our] favorite things... I hope everyone had a nice weekend -- sorry for not posting yesterday, but hey, if most of the western world gets some kind of holiday, then heck, we don't feel so bad about skipping a day too!

To make up for that, here's a list of just a small cross-section of our favorite things. Hastily assembled over email, this started as a smallish list and turned into a semi-massive collection of the kind of songs we just can't live without. Enjoy! (And be sure to pogo about when you listen to any selection blessed with disco octaves bouncing about in the bassline!)

Jazz standards:
Cindy: John Coltrane -- My Favorite Things
Pinkie: Nina Simone -- Lilac Wine

Disco octaves:
Cindy: Interpol -- Slow Hands
Pinkie: ABC -- Poison Arrow

Cindy: Love Is All -- Make Out Fall Out Make Up
Pinkie: X-Ray Spex -- Identity

Sleigh bells:
Cindy: The Smiths -- Girlfriend in a Coma

Pedal steel:
Pinkie: Billie Ray Martin -- I Don't Believe

Disco octaves and saxophones:
Pinkie and Cindy: Duran Duran -- Rio

Sleigh bells and saxophones:
Cindy: The Earlies -- The Devil's Country

[We're just not equipped at this time to post something with pedal steel and saxophones, which is to say we couldn't think of anything... Can you?]

Cindy: Sloan -- The Good In Every One
Pinkie: The Arcade Fire -- Rebellion (Lies)

Boys hollerin':
Cindy and Pinkie: The National -- Abel

Practically perfect songs:
Cindy: The Stone Roses -- I Want To Be Adored & XTC -- I'm The Man Who Murdered Love
Pinkie: Cocteau Twins -- Carolyn's Fingers & Echo and the Bunnymen -- Bring On The Dancing Horses

Exemplary remixes:
Cindy: Murray Head -- One Night In Bangkok (Hot Handz remix)
Pinkie: Nina Simone -- See-Line Woman (M@W remix)

Songs I sang with my dad:
Cindy: The Eagles -- Take It Easy
Pinkie: Patsy Cline -- San Antonio Rose

Songs I sang with my mom:
Cindy: Joni Mitchell -- A Case of You
Pinkie: The Beach Boys -- Good Vibrations

Oh, and! Check out our submissions to GoodHodgkins' Exceptional Cover Songs feature. I mean, really -- when was the last time you thought about Bedhead and Macha? If at all? Either way, their cover of Cher's "Believe" is totally worth hearing...!

Since you mentioned cover songs and "Take It Easy", I want to recommend Sarah Dougher's cover of "Take It Easy", which breaks my heart in new places every time I hear it, and sometimes in the old one which have yet to fully mend from the last time I heard it.
