i've decided using playlists as recommendations are easier than real recommendations. so here's one i made the other day.

1. jimmy eat world- a praise chorus
2. of montreal- the party's crashing us
3. belle and sebastian- for the price of a cup of tea
4. stars- elevator love letter
5. third eye blind- wounded
6. the get up kids- mass pike
7. the snake the cross the crown- the sun tells the moon
8. every time i die- the new black
9. the format- tie the rope
10. the elected- would you come with me
11. the smiths- ask
12. the american analog set- the kindness of strangers
13. the shins- girl inform me
14. say anything- we will erase all life on earth but us
15. the weakerthans- aside
16. minus the bear- fine +2 pts
17. hey mercedes- the boy destroyers
18. days away- keep your voices down (old, more rocky version)
19. the promise ring- happiness is all the rage

it's fun. as for cds, i recommend oasis- (what's the story) morning glory. i hadn't listened to it in a while, and it's still awesome.

"Mass Pike" and "Tie the Rope" are two of my favorite songs by any band in any genre, ever.

Check out "Blue Skies" from Blackpool Lights (link's in my recs) if you haven't. So fuckin' catchy.

yeah hmm...just listening to all this the past week on the way to school:

x&y - coldplay
hold on - name taken
i am the movie- motion city soundtrack
menos el oso- minus the bear
moon and antarctica- modest mouse
deja entendu- brand new
parachutes- coldplay
keep it like a secret- built to spill

and i don't know what it is about that new beyonce single, but its stuck in my head.

listen to the song "I Shall Be Released" by The Band. they backed Bob Dylan on numerous tours and on albums etc.. it's a great song.
also, the new Strokes album is amazing. Ize of the World is the best song that they have written yet.
remember Collective Soul? Dosage is still one of the most amazing alternative albums i've heard. check it out if you don't have it. very worth while album.
and i agree with that other guy, (What's The Story) Morning Glory? is a great record, i've been listening to it a lot. do rock songs get any better than "Don't Look Back In Anger"???
