    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. …

    19,990 Blonde Redhead Spring And By Summer Fall This just rings of the Church to me. atmospheric, soaring guitars and lots of "noise" going on. I've listened to other songs by these guys, but didn't get the same vibe at all. This is spot on, though.

    19,989 Scott Simons Umbrella A perfect example of how the song is what matters. I know nothing of Scott Simon except that he used to front some band (Social Distortion possibly? heh?) . . And the rihanna version I don't really know, so. Great cut.

    19,988 + 19,987 Jason Harrod Looming + Siobhan Please know that these songs are from one of my top five albums ever. I would never want to put this on Jason, but like Derek Webb, I would let Jason Harrod speak for me. His head is in the right place and his songs sound like what mine do only so much better. Much much better. His songs are really what I have always tried to create. He created them, though, not me. Thus I respect and love his gift of melody and, well, tunage. …
