Round 13

1. Rhiannon Giddens - At the Purchaser's Option
(Giddens is phenomenally talented. An old soul, an amazing interpreter of songs, and a versatile vocalist capable of flitting in and out of multiple genres. Plus she's from nearby by neck of the woods. I find this song very powerful. Steeped in tradition, smelling of soil and sweat from the skin of slaves; a painful, prideful protest.)

2. Tom Waits - Way Down in the Hole
(So much character. I'd put my vocal chords through hell if I knew it would make me sound like Waits.)

3. Amy Holland - She's On Fire
(Always a sucker for that 80's pop sound.)

4. The Gravity Guild - Last Act of a Desperate Man
(Dug the haunting quality of it, but vocally it reminds me too much of Staind and other 2000's alt-rock bands that I never liked very much.)

5. Arvo Pärt - Spiegel im spiegel
(The sorrowful, melancholic strings succeeded in bumming me out, and I'd probably put this on in the background if I was penning a suicide letter or something, but by the halfway point I was pretty bored with it.)

6. Alain Goraguer - Strip Tease
(Loved the first half of this, which is haunting, ethereal, a bit creepy, but not at all a fan of the second half once the flute or whatever comes into play. Fantastic Planet is an awesome movie, though.)

7. Dean Martin - Always
(Just not into the old crooners.)

Yeah that's not Anouk, it's a very bad cover version, don't matter, I think ahwell is gonna win this round anyway.

Sorry about that. I only found that video or a live version, so I chose the video that wasn't the live version. I didn't know it was a cover version.

I think we can all silently agree that it was for the best and fair not including Bowie's Glass Spider in this game. Though I do appreciate everyone's love for the Black Star, and I'm sure (as each of you are) that it would have swept. Much respect to all that entered. Who run Barter Town? Chyp (chyp chyp...chyp) run (run) Barter (barter barter ...barter) Town (town town...).

mommy come back, cuz it's dark now.
take care ....take care.
