Pimps, links, and MUSIC FOR YOU!

  • Gossip Girl is my new guilty pleasure. I just-. Well. *points to guilty* The first ep is re-airing this Sunday night on the CW channel, for those that get it. (It's like a SUPER NAUGHTY Sweet Valley High/Caitlin. But you know, not mind-numbingly written.)

  • I wrote Office Fic yesterday that is "funny!" and "hilarious!" and "so true to character it's like I'm reading an episode!" You can be the judge. :D [/shameless and shameful.]

  • I was tagged for a music meme by Beans with the letter L: Comment and I'll give you a letter. In your journal, list ten of your favorite songs that begin with that letter.

Um.. it's supposed to be 10 songs. I can't do it!! 22 songs here. DLs after the list.

  1. LDN - Lilly Allen Okay, I know she's been overplayed, but this song still makes me happy. Probably because I don't listen to the radio.
  2. Luchas Reyes - Regressa (I'm cheating here - that's their name) But the song is so Buenos Aires and fun. Accordion! Come on.
  3. Linus & Lucy - Vince Guiraldi Trio Does this song not make you so happy you could skip?!
  4. Lay Your Hands On Me - Peter Gabriel Again: the man can do no wrong in my eyes.
  5. Love Is A Losing Game - Amy Winehouse Any song by her is awesome. It puts me right back in that Burt Bacharach place.Of long cigarettes in holders, Audrey Hepburn clothes, and whiskey, neat.
  6. La Gota Fria - Carlos Vives Ooooh, how fun Carlos Vives can be. Salsa, shake your booty while mopping, and pretend that Fernando is whirling you on the dance floor. :D
  7. Let's Stay Together - Al Green Classic. Who doesn't love this song? (If you don't, I don't want to know, because I will think less of you, and we don't want that.)
  8. Like That - Black Eyed Peas with Cee Lo, Talib Kweli and Q-Tip Okay, there is NO FERGIE, which makes this a cool song, because they used to be a great hip hop group. This is smooth and jazzy, and I looove it
  9. Look of Love, The - Dusty Springfield This is from the Burt Bacharach score of the original Casino Royale, which is utterly 60s fantastic. And now I'm going to be shpeaking like Sean Connery for the durashion of the day. Shuper! I sho reccommend "Hey There, Missh Goodthighsh" from that shoundtrack. [ETA] This is playing weird online, but when you DL it, it sounds fine. Weird.
  10. Laura - Dave Brubeck and not for narcisisstic reasons. Come on, it's a classic for a reason. (My fave version is by Charlie Parker, and I can't find my CD...)
  11. Love of my Life - Eryka Badu and Common They did this when they were still together (they have a baby together) and this is such a sweet song, and I love the message of them being best friends who drifted apart, grew up, then came back together. <3
  12. Let Me Clear My Throat - Doug E Fresh and Biz Markie Okay, this just rocks. It reminds me of pep rallys at my school. I dare you to not bob along to this. Double dog dare!
  13. Lift Thine Eyes To The Mountains - Felix Mendelssohn, performed by the Atlanta Symphony Chorus I grew up on choral music, and while I'm not a Christian, old school hymns are astoundingly beautiful and uplifting. This is one of my favorites, and this chorus is one of the best in the world, no lie. The women singing will absolutely make your day filled with joy.
  14. Lamb Lies Down on Broadway, The - Genesis This is the original line up with Peter Gabriel, who can do no wrong in my eyes. Good mid-70s prog-rock
  15. Lotion - The Greenkeepers Hahaha. I've put this up before, but it bears repeating: this song is HILARIOUS. Um, if you have a dark sense of humor and enjoy Silence of the Lambs. Which I do.
  16. Lonely Shepherd, The - Kill Bill Soundtrack I love the pan flute. PAN FLUTE! It makes me want to stand on a craggy cliffside, staring off at the unseen obstacles I will face in order to become the best fighter China has ever seen. And then I will honor my people or die trying. Hahaha. But seriously. *Stands facing the wind, which whips my red sash, as a reed instrument echoes my pain
  17. Let Down (Radiohead cover) - Off The Beat Okay, yes, this is an Andy Bernard song to love as it's by UPenn's a capella group. And yet... It makes this incredibly sad song slightly less so.
  18. Los Laureles - Linda Rondtadt I want her to be my mommy. I love Linda so much, it's not even funny. Her voice gives me chills, and her Mariachi album makes me smile like almost nothing else.
  19. Loungin' (Who Do You Love?) - LL Cool J Ladies Love Cool James. I swear, I love that fat-lipped man. And this was a great video, anyone remember videos?
  20. Los Condenaditos - Los Fabulosos Cadillacs Another jazzy/salsa dance song. Picture a dark handsome stranger stubbing out a smoke, walking to you with purpose, and leading you to the floor. And then you miraculously have FABULOUS moves and you do that spinny thing and the stranger pops his hands under the hem of your skirt to make it fly up. Hee!
  21. Love Will Tear Us Apart - The Cure I like this version better than the original Joy Division, which is heresy, I know. And yet...
  22. Las Seis Cuerdes - Paco de Lucia This is one of the great Flamenco guitarists of all time. This is an old recording - late 50s - and if you're into good guitar music, anything by Paco de Lucia is a MUST. (As is Andres Segovia & Christopher Parkening)
  23. Learning To Fly - Pink Floyd Their best? Of course not. But mediocre Floyd is better than most stuff out there.

And how much do I love SO MUCH. I wish everyone would use it when sharing music. I mean, you get to HEAR IT before you commit to a dl! Nice. Lemme know what you think! (All songs together = 89MB)
