some comments on that last bit: My favourite songs tend to reflect my favourite albums of the moment, but as you can see there are a few departures from that list. The new Elastica album is wonderful, but it has only made me lust after the 1:33 of perfection that is “All-Nighter” even more. The split entries represent songs that i usually listen to in pairs on the albums they come from. On Nina Gordon’s album, the two are really the only ones i like, but on Tracy Bonham’s and Weezer’s they’re barely better than the rest. The Pretenders are on the list just because “Back on the Chain Gang” melts my whole world. As for Ani, “Swing” is from her new EP and her last LP, “Itch” is from Not So Soft (which i recently gushed about), and the live “Firedoor” (featuring an awesome segue into “Rapper’s Delight”) is from a 1999 radio show from Stockholm.
