Out Go The Lights

One of my favorite songs of the year is "Out Go The Lights" by Spoon. I can't stop listening to it.

"...and when that light turns back again you will remember the way they fall for you like a brick. Oh, but nobody loves you or woos you when you're down or kicked. Out go the lights. Never see that counterpoint. You always looked good that way, you with the one-two punch."

Spoon: Out Go The Lights (mp3)

But in a strange way there is something about this song that feels a little like the verse in Def Leppard's Hysteria. Am I crazy?

The Prodigy + Talking Heads

It's wonderful to see the unexpected marriage of two beautiful things.

Have Two On Me

She's pretty weird, very eloquent, and has that voice. She is also an excellent songwriter. Check out these two little beauties below from her upcoming triple album "Have One On Me". Ridiculously good.
