It's gotten big. Almost 800 tracks, and that's not including the silly Harry Potter & Star Wars holiday songs I found somewhere. They're pretty lame though IMHO, so they aren't included on the list. I had to use MS Word to put the list together, and I'm pretty sure it's too many characters for a single LJ post because of all the crap Word adds into html documents, so I'm just linking to the list.

Jen's 2010 Holiday Song Collection

If you want anything on the list, just ask. Except for The Brobecks song "Christmas Drag." You should go buy that one on iTunes 'cause Dallon Weekes & his adorable family need the money.

I pretty much tend to avoid songs with religious references and I love new songs more than the classics. Though I also enjoy comedy and even some kids stuff. If anyone has any great holiday songs that I don't have that seem like they'd fit in with my collection, share with me pretty please?

I should say... not all of these songs are good. I don't listen to all of them. I have a playlist of about 100 songs I'm listening to regularly this year. Maybe I'll post that list later. Or go look at my page. I've been listening to my holiday playlist quite a bit lately.
jenepherre: (PATD what a song looks like)
So I decided to make a playlist of California/West Coast songs, just for fun. So far I have:

West Of California - The Brobecks
LA Song - Christian Kane
West Coast - Coconut Records
Still In Hollywood - Concrete Blonde
Hollywood - The Cranberries
Los Angeles, I'm Yours - The Decemberists
San Jose - Frankie Goes To Hollywood
Safe In L.A. - Gold Motel
California - Phantom Planet
Meet Me In California - Plain White T's

Obviously I like alternative rock, but I'm open to other types of music (except overly twangy country or rap). Not really looking for older songs like California Girls. Want kind of eclectic stuff. Any suggestions?? If anyone is interested, I'll post the playlist for download when it's done. :-)
jenepherre: (Empires gray 5 E's)

Hope these work. They're not really loading on preview. If you can't see the players, go to WE ARE EMPIRES instead. Buy the songs, support the band, share the love!
jenepherre: (Cmas Silent Knight)
Ripped from myspace. Just be nice and buy it from iTunes when Dallon gets it up there and support him.

The Brobecks - Christmas Drag

Share with anyone.

ETA: This is now available on Amazon mp3 downloads, among other places. Still don't see it on iTunes though. But Amazon is an easy place to buy and download from. You should check out their 25 Days of Free for some free holiday music. And their regular free mp3 section, with around 1200 tracks for free. I found a few gems in there. ;-D

December Is For Cynics - an Anti-Christmas Playlist

December Is For Cynics )

That's a narrowed down list of favorites. I have more. Bah! Ha ha! Anyone have any suggestions for additions to the list? I do enjoy happy holiday music too, but songs like these usually fit my mood better at Christmastime. Meh.

I'm having trouble uploading a zip with all the songs in it. Giving up on that for the moment, unless someone really wants it.
jenepherre: (Cmas Eeyore not my present)
Everybody go back to my Guess the Song meme here and try again. I added a little bit more of the lyrics to each of the songs that haven't been guessed yet, as well as a few hints on the more obscure songs. At least I'm up to 6 of out 25 guessed right.

Also, if you did the meme in your LJ and I didn't come over and guess any of yours, comment here and tell me. I'll come give it a shot. :-)

Coming next, my Anti-Christmas playlist. For when you're in a Bah Humbug kind of mood. :-P
jenepherre: (Cmas Garfield giftwrap fa la la)
I really shouldn't inflict my music library on you guys, but who knows? You all might surprise me.

Found on [ profile] marauder_bex's and [ profile] i_am_tre's journals.

Put your music library on shuffle.
Post the first lines of the first 25 songs that come up.
The game: Guess which songs the first lines are from!
Google is your friend cheating!

ETA: Added a bit more of the lyrics for the ones that haven't been guessed yet. Included hints on some of the more obscure ones too. Try again, you guys. I know you can get more of them than you have so far. I know you can. Or send your friends over to guess. It'll be fun... come on... please?

  1. No one can blame you for walking away
    But too much rejection, uh huh...
    No love injection
    Underground - David Bowie - [ profile] darksylvia

  2. He thinks he's Oscar Wilde but he's Paul Lynde
    Can't say anything good about anything
    (the band was mentioned in season 1 of QAF)

  3. My baby moves at midnight
    Goes right on till the dawn
    My woman takes me higher
    My woman keeps me warm
    - You Should Be Dancing - The Bee Gees - [ profile] rgrandixie
    (from the late 70's)

  4. Take me out tonight
    Where there's music and there's people
    And they're young and alive
    There Is A Light That Never Goes Out - The Smiths - [ profile] falling_words

  5. I'm crazy flowing over with ideas Love to Hate You - Erasure - [ profile] katya23

  6. Then when you let it
    You asked for nothing
    Why don't you share it
    All of the time you live
    There's something out there
    (a bit more obscure, I think, though a lot of you should know the band)

  7. The means are right for taking, fade to grey
    Trying to be ruthless, in the face of beauty
    In this matrix, it's plain to see
    It's either you or me.

  8. I'm ridin' in your car
    You turn on the radio
    You're pullin' me close
    I just say no
    I say I don't like it
    But you know I'm a liar
    Fire - The Pointer Sisters - [ profile] rgrandixie
    (lots of speculation on this one... and the most embarrassing one on the list for me - also from the late 70's)

  9. We're caught in a trap I can't walk out Suspicious Minds - Elvis Presley (and later covered by Fine Young Cannibals) - [ profile] i_am_tre

  10. You wear guilt
    Like shackles on your feet
    Like a halo in reverse
    I can feel
    The discomfort in your seat
    And in your head it's worse
    Halo - Depeche Mode - [ profile] katya23

  11. Maybe in you I'll believe Maybe I'll believe in you Crumb By Crumb - Rufus Wainwright - [ profile] calidearie

  12. Last night I saw a movie
    and I thought about many movies I've seen at your house
    excuse me if I'm rude
    but I'd rather that we just strike from the record ones I'd see again without you
    leaning on my shoulder
    distracting me from the plotline
    (early song by a band we're all talking about right now)

  13. Can you feel me coming
    open the door it's only me
    I have that desperate feeling
    in trouble is where I'm going to be
    (artist has a tie-in to artist for #10)

  14. Hey now the well run dry
    Pages of the book on fire
    Read the writing ...on the wall...

    Hoedown, say showdown
    Everywhere you look
    they're fighting...Hear the call...
    (classic rock, was probably used on Supernatural)

  15. I don't get many things right the first time
    In fact, I am told that a lot
    Now I know all the wrong turns, the stumbles and falls
    Brought me here
    The Luckiest - Ben Folds - [ profile] falling_words
    (I love this song so damn much... incredibly beautiful)

  16. Jamie's on the bathroom floor she don't know why
    She's shaking underneath the sink can't feel a thing
    She'd love to live a life she's afraid of failure
    With all the voices in her head
    Now what was that I thought I hear you scream
    (slightly more obscure; Canadian artist who has a tie-in to a Canadian ex-gf of Gale Harold)

  17. Sucking on a tap that never dries
    Could you take it right between your eyes
    Bending blood, bending blood
    The father stood, the father's hood
    Like shadow on an acid bird that etched her way across a field
    So long ago
    (I don't really expect anyone to get this one. English singer/songwriter. Lyrics tend to be very surrealist, focusing on death, eating or sex. Also had a small acting role in 2004's The Manchurian Candidate)

  18. A house on fire
    A wall of stone
    A door that once was open
    An empty face and empty bones
    Who ate your heart?
    You're cold inside
    You're not the one I hoped for
    I'll see you on the other side
    I'll see you on the other side

  19. It's you, you, you again Minimal Peach - Greek Buck - [ profile] darksylvia

  20. You are the lighthouse, the seamark Echo - The Hush Sound - [ profile] disc0_dancer

  21. I'm in a mess, I'm in a dress
    There's nothing from here till tomorrow morning
    How will I get there?
    How will I get there?
    I don't do drugs
    All my friends are on their holidays
    (I have a love/hate relationship with one of the words in the title of this song)

  22. Unbidden shadows of you formed yesterday
    I ran away to a room here on the bay
    Interrupted life again, another new beginning
    Where the silence echoes you're no longer with me

    Here and now, i feel that i'm embracing freedom
    Even though i may be alone, but that's ok
    (artist does very ethereal sounding music; they had a remix of one of their songs used in season 2 of QAF)

  23. These are the days of the open hand Praying for Time - George Michael - [ profile] katya23

  24. Baby, when you walk that sweet walk
    Oh, you walk it good, yes you walk it good
    Baby, when you talk that sweet talk
    Oh, it sounds so good, oh so good
    (classic rock; title has a tie-in to a Cobra bandmember)

  25. She had something to confess to
    But you don’t have the time so
    Look the other way
    You will wait until it's over
    To reveal what you’d never shown her
    Too little much too late
    (I don't even know this song well, but love the artist, who has a tie-in to the Twilight saga)

  26. There's a pretty wide variety in there. I did have to skip over a few instrumental songs, and I skipped over one where the first line was the song title. Can't make it too easy, right? So... guesses? And should I post what the songs are after a few days or something?

    Hints: There's a couple of classic rock songs in there, a fair amount of 70's, 80's and 90's music, and there are two by FBR/Decaydance artists.

From Maroon 5's myspace blog:

Hey Everybody,

Maroon 5 just helped put together a free music playlist for you to download and we wanted to let you know about it.

A few weeks ago, they were hanging with a friend when they came up with an idea.

They said:
"Let's get a bunch of bands together and give away free music to people who pledge to vote. Then after they pledge, we can send them some information that helps them find out everything they need to know about early voting, absentee voting or just finding their neighborhood polling location."

We contacted the people at Rock The Vote to help run the project, recruited some very talented artists to give away songs and launched the thing this morning.

In less than one minute, you can get Free Music from Maroon 5, Sara Bareilles, Phantom Planet, Michael Franti, Ry Cuming and more simply by visiting:

All you have to do is fill out the pledge and then download the music. It's that easy. Please Rock the Vote. Spread the word to all your friends... Spread the music... Spread the love.

Thank you very much,
Maroon 5 and Friends.

Everyone I know is planning to vote anyway. Why not get some free music out of it?

hahaha The song, I mean. Run over to [ profile] twentyoneoclock for Sendspace links to download the full Cobra Starship song "I Kissed A Boy" - without the annoying mix-up stuff in it. Links are in the comments here.

Also, somebody tell me where to find some good gay Gabe icons, please????

The beautiful and amazing [ profile] atorable posted a fanmix a little while ago and said to share it far and wide, and since it is full of love and amazing songs, I am doing just that.

We Must Reinvent Love: Love for Those In Love

Inspired by the adorable couple in my icon, Ryan Ross and Keltie Colleen. Because... they are LOVE. ::nods::

BTW, [ profile] darksylvia - she included a Jeff Buckley song. You have to at least go look, right? :-D

New PATD Songs!!!

Well, [ profile] pinkkchocolate beat me to it and posted the two additional songs from the "Nine In The Afternoon" CD Single.  You can find them here:

If those links go bad for some reason, comment here and I'll upload them for you guys.

I'm so totally blown away by these songs!  They're both basically acoustic, and Ryan sings one of them all alone.  And his voice is perfect for that particular song.  I have goosebumps.  The one Brendon sings is amazing too.  I'm just in love with both of them.  I almost wonder if I'll like the album versions as much as these alternate versions, partly because I love acoustic songs.

Also: [ profile] twentyoneoclock [ profile] twentyoneoclock [ profile] twentyoneoclock [ profile] twentyoneoclock  [/ pimp]

(Yeah, I'm cross-posting this on both [ profile] panic_obsessed and [ profile] twentyoneoclock. Sorry if you happen to have both of those and me on your f-list! But I'm so excited!!!)
jenepherre: (Disco Ball Ani)

I am currently ripping no less than 17 CDs into iTunes - even though I have LOTS of other things I really should be doing - and it's ALL YOUR FAULT! Damn addictive disco music. ::pouts:: Okay, so I did already own 17 disco cds, but that's totally not the point! I wouldn't be all caught up in listening to this irritatingly catchy music if it weren't for your B/J Disco Fever mix. No, I'm not gonna link to it. I won't contribute to others being afflicted with this fever I have.

And yes... I might post a playlist and a few songs later. Damn it all.

Anybody remember "Funkytown" by Lipps, Inc.? hehehehe

jenepherre: (LWR - The Bad Hair Show)
I had to upload this for someone, and figured there was no reason to waste the other 99 downloads. ;-)

Not quite sure how to describe this, but it's beautiful. If you like Keane, Death Cab for Cutie, Maroon 5... can't think of who else... then you'll like this.

If you've seen Ewan McGregor's Long Way Round series, this is the song playing when Ewan and Charley are in Alaska and go out on the boat to see the icebergs and do some whale watching.

"Solstice" by Malbec

jenepherre: (Kelton - yeah right face)
A song for you all...

Mousse T. vs. The Dandy Warhols - "Horny as a Dandy"

Oddly enough, the song "Horny" that was used in QAF season 1 (Brian at the baths) and "Bohemian Like You" by The Dandy Warhols actually mesh really well. LOL
