Another Vegas Playlist

I have to confess that having a monthly theme is getting to be a pain in the ass. Maybe it's just that I don't really know what to say about the music I like, except the effect it's had on my life. I'm by no means a good reviewer. The best I can really do is offer another cool playlist, which we listened to on our trip to Vegas. It's called ...But I've Got to Get to Vegas, a reference you probably won't get unless you're a Tori Amos fan.

1) "One Night" - Travis
2) "Sticks and Stones" - the Pierces
3) "Suddenly I See" - KT Tunstall
4) "Mrs. Robinson" - the Lemonheads
5) "Blind Willie McTell" - Bob Dylan
6) "Kashmir" - Led Zeppelin
7) "Woke Up This Morning" (Acoustic) - A3
8) "Sinnerman" - Nina Simone
9) "Surfing on a Rocket" - Air
10) "Rehab" - Amy Winehouse
11) "Boston" - Augustana
12) "Poison" - Bell Biv Devoe
13) "Longshot" - Antigone Rising
14) "Call Me" - Blondie
15) "Tender" - Blur
16) "Fortunate Son" - Wyclef Jean
17) "Hash Pipe" - Weezer
18) "Where the Streets Have No Name" - U2
19) "Riot Poof" - Tori Amos
20) "Girlfriend in a Coma" - the Smiths
21) "Black" - Sarah McLachlan
22) "Crush with Eyeliner" - R.E.M.
23) "Under the Milky Way" - the Church
24) "In My Place" - Coldplay
25) "Drowning by Dreamtime" - Cynthia Glass
26) "Ants Marching" (live) - Dave Matthews Band
27) "Under Pressure" - David Bowie & Queen

Because I didn't include any direct links to the songs, here's a couple of videos. The first one is "One Night" by Travis, which is easily my favorite song of the moment. The second is "Under the Milky Way" by the Church, which I have been playing constantly for the past year or so.

A monthly theme is too limiting, my friend!

This is especially true when the word "randomness" is in your blog title. ;)

oh, a lot of these songs are on my ipod -- great playlist!

maybe like the monkey said, a theme is just too limiting? if it falls into place, awesome! and if not, that's okay too.

That is a super super super fun playlist! I want to make one of my own that is even CLOSE to that fun! I need to download some 90's jams that I used to enjoy.

I was unaware of Wyclef's version of "Fortunate Son."
I must look this up.
