I've had the Pixies for a while but don't really listen to them. So when "Where Is My Mind" came up, I didn't even know who the band was. I forgot how awesome this song is.
Listened to OR's Omie Wise as well as Greg Graffin rendition. Such a great, unrecognized song.
Sam Cooke's "A Change is Gonna Come" is good to listen to when reading about politics these days. Vote Obama!
Wolf Parade's new album rocks as I expected it. There's only a few songs I don't really like and they are Fine Young Cannibals and the 2nd track.
Negra Sombra was featured in The Sea Inside, a wonderful, utterly depressing Spanish movie.
The last few songs I listened to while dumping my entire music library in Winamp and randomly playing songs. I really need to do this more often because I'm missing out on some great songs from the past.
