That elusive hide-and-seek cow is at it again
  1. Flipper - Ever
  2. The Pillows - Ride on Shooting Star
    I hear this song and I turn all to mush reminiscing on broken hearts (I think we all had our own Haruko Haruhara) and a strange need for an old Vespa Super Sport 180.

  3. The Kentucky Vampires - Daughter Of The Morning Star
    This song reminds me of that track playing with those upside down bats at a rave. You know what I'm referring to?
  4. Johnny Paycheck - Pardon Me (I've Got Someone to Kill)
  5. Crowded House - Kare Kare
  6. The Shins - Simple Song
  7. Silvana Estrada - Te Guardo
  8. Air Supply - Even The Nights Are Better
    WOW, it's been a while since hearing this song. Not sure this was part of the soundtrack, but I keep having visions of Dudley Moore's, Arthur. No, I'm thinking of "Best That You Can Do." wow at the similarities though. Neat.
  9. burnt-feathers - no dream (but the eyes can easily find me in my waking life)
    This has so much potential for me but as it is, it's just texture. I really wanted to hear it evolve. Some kind of contrast, ya know?
  10. Rico Nasty - Rage
  11. Lady Gaga - Hold My Hand
    The only song that didn't really fit its movie soundtrack, IMO. Had I first heard this song in another context, that might not have been as influential to my opinion.
Pretty great line up! Thanks for the shares!!

I swear. Why can't return breaks EVER work here?!

@PHOENIX74 - sadly that Scissor Sisters vid won't play here (geo-blocked most likely) ... would this one be acceptable as an alternative link for those of us that might need it?

Same goes for me with your link, but I'm assuming it's correct so at least now everyone has both options Thanks

Yeah, 'tis from the same channel which I presume is their official one. Just one reason why it's better not to leave making nominations too late (not that Yin ever listens lol).
