A Song For October

Tools    





Billie Holiday - Strange Fruit - The most horrific of the halloween themed stuff I've posted. Wonderfully evocative of the most horrible imagery. Once I'd decided I was going to try and shy away from some of the most obvious stuff, this was a definite.

Amyl and the Sniffers - Some Mutts (Can't Be Muzzled) - A throwback to a time I enjoy.

Weedeater - It Is What It Is - Now that's a grimey sounding guitar and I like it. if I liked the singing it'd be a real winner.

The Sound - I Can't Escape Myself - Sounds like someone in the 90's trying to sound like Joy Division. Which I know it definitely isn't as they are contemporaries of Joy Division, but I did have to check the video to make sure.

Meg Myers - Lemon Eyes - I quite like it but there's something which keeps me from giving it more praise than that after one listen.

Johannes Brahms - Cello Sonata No. 1 in E minor, III. Allegro - Just not in the right mood for something like this atm.

The Prince of Egypt - Deliver Us - It sounds like something from a musical. That's rarely a good thing for me.

Clint Black - Untanglin' My Mind - My mind's in an odd place today and, while I didn't like it, this didn't annoy me as much as I'd have expected.

Costello ft. 4Real - Chill D **** Out - Just didn't like it very much.

Cradle of Filth - Dusk and Her Embrace - Sorry, never understood this stuff.

Eddie Vedder - Society - Too close to folk/country for me liking.

Let's end this tournament with an old Finnish classic. And yeah, it's about drinking and the artist pretty much drank himself to death (though I guess it was a bit more complicated than that).

1. Costello ft. 4Real - Chill D **** Out
I love Costello of Street Literature. He's probably my favourite hip hop artist at the moment, along with dälek and Cannibal Ox. I love his accent, and his backing music is always my kind of chill. I also love that he's not about pimps and hos.

2. Weedeater - It Is What It Is
Never heard this before but instantly liked it. This is definitely my kind of thing.

3. Billie Holiday - Strange Fruit
I was thinkiong about this song earlier in the tournament. I was going to nominate Tricky's remix of it but never got around to it. Great song.

4. The Sound - I Can't Escape Myself
Yeah I like this.

5. Amyl and the Sniffers - Some Mutts (Can't Be Muzzled)
Like more action rock Blondie. I dig it.

6. Eddie Vedder - Society
I quite like this...Sometimes his tone grates me but not this time.

7. Meg Myers - Lemon Eyes
Decent enough pop song.

8. Clint Black - Untanglin' My Mind

9. Cradle of Filth - Dusk and Her Embrace

10. Johannes Brahms - Cello Sonata No. 1 in E minor, III. Allegro

11. The Prince of Egypt - Deliver Us
