    19,999 Michael Andrews-Mad World Hearing this cover for the first time really brought something out of me. I'd already had a history with this song, knowing the original so many years prior. This time, well, now it's different. I can now empathize as a father and as a teacher as well, so it breaks my heart nearly every time. I've failed here, and there and there as well. I am broken. This is a reminder of why I tell my students to speak the language of love and not to judge anyone. this song is unfair, too, because it speaks the truth and sometimes I just don't want to hear it.

    19,998 Derek Webb-A New Law How pathetic am I? "Don't teach me about truth and beauty/ Just label my music." I didn't need a slap in the face right now. I will say that this is a great album and I am actually grateful that I have it.

    19,997 ケツメイシ-ドライブ あっ、これはいい曲だなぁ。。。いくら聴いても嬉しくなるんです。この曲も、歌詞が解らなくても平気です。Groovyっていうだけで いいんじゃないですか。

    19,996 Weezer- Pork and Beans Wait a minute! What song is this? Oh yea, Weezer, and he's dropping names. …

Indeed it starts with a great discovery for me:

    Cat Power - The Greatest

    Though strictly speaking, Cat Power was someone I have been aware about for a while, this week was the first
    time I have really started to listen to her music. I recently received her excellent album Moon Pix however this song from her 2006 album, also called The Greatest came to my attention via YouTube. I saw footage of her brilliant performance on Later...With Jools Holland, a show I would thoroughly recommend to anyone who can get it. The version from that show remains the best version I have heard, including the album version.

    It is a brilliant, lush track, full of backing singers, strings, piano, guitar and drums. …
