What was the first song you ever heard by 6?
Probably All the Small Things or something on the radio when I was in middle school.
What is your favorite album by 2?
Come on Feel the Illinoise. Although its a toss-up between that and Michigan. I listen to only like 4 songs of each album, but a million times.
What is your favorite lyric that 1 has sung?
"i heard a little girl / and what she said was something beautiful / to give your love no matter what / is what she said"
31 Oct 2007, 18:44 by S_AmarillisEntão, lá estava eu. Largado, desamparado, sentindo-me inseguro e só. Acontece com todo mundo em muitas situações. As duas mais comuns acontecem após um pé na bunda (recebido; e não dado) e um acidente (de carro, de planos, de objeto).
E todo mundo passa por este dia. Tive eu uma namorada que gostaria que a música tivesse trilha sonora. Para mim, naquela época, havia apenas uma música: Trouble - Coldplay. Era a música que eu ouvia quando brigávamos ou nos ausentávamos do carinho mútuo. Até hoje eu ouço essa música. Até hoje lembro dela.
Todavia, a lembrança não é do fim, nem melancólica. A lembrança é simplesmente minha - uma mistura de sensações da época com emoções novas, que então pareciam tão distantes.
Hoje eu me encontro com estas sensações novamente. Inspeciono todo meu intelecto em busca de acontecimentos parecidos. Eles existem em algum lugar da memória que contém mais imagens que tatos e paladares e audições. Eu sempre concluo que o momento atual é tão ou mais mágico que todos os outros anteriores…

7 Jul 2007, 20:58 by zackgressOkay, to clarify what I'm talking about, I'm speaking purely in terms of:
major key modality
harmonically pleasing intervals
notes that resolve well into the root of the key
compositions only! No improv! (with the exception of Big Country and A Remark You Made- all the soloing there remains pretty atmospheric)
Quickly, I created a list and by the time I had scrolled down to the bottom of my iTunes, I had compiled a list of 71 songs. Wayyy to big for A) the purposes of making a tight, to the point list to inspire thought and B) NOT spending an entire day writing this journal entry.
Over the last week I've been working on the trimming.
I mean, I can't very well have 9 Radiohead songs on there. Time to pick the best of the best of the best. MOST importantly not finding the subjective adjective 'best' but finding what really fit the criteria of beautiful, open melody that I was looking for. It looks like mostly I found that in compositions involving the acoustic guitar.

30 Dec 2005, 00:07 by kristynBest Artist: Sufjan Stevens
I listened to "The Dress Looks Nice on You" way too often, without paying much attention to any of Sufjan's other stuff. That is, until October. Oh, wow. Sufjan has totally blown me away with "Chicago," "Casimir Pulaski Day," "That Was the Worst Christmas Ever!" and "Come on! Feel the Illinoise!"
Runners Up: Wolf Parade, Richard Buckner
Best Album: The Cars: Complete Greatest Hits
I knew I liked "You Might Think," so I bought the album--and proceeded to fall in love with every single track.
Runners Up: Iron And Wine: Our Endless Numbered Days
I bought this album at a friend's recommendation, not really expecting much. Boy, was I surprised.
