Musics, acoustic and otherwise

Here are some acoustic songs I've come across lately that I thought my lovely, lovely flist would enjoy. All mp3 except where noted.


-Spitting Games - Snow Patrol - You get to hear lead singer Gary Lightbody give a little intro here. Such a lovely Irish burr and it's stronger than usual through the song too
-Run - Snow Patrol
-Brace Yourself - Howie Day. Known to inspire certain fanfic writers. *wink* (m4a)
-Mascara - Interpol. They sound rather like they're at the bottom of a well, which suits them.
-Days Go By - Dirty Vegas. Yes, this is that electronic dance track ("days go by and still I think of you"), now acoustic! A must-listen. I like both versions, myself.
-Breaking Up the Girl - Garbage
-Fell In Love With a Girl - White Stripes
-The Chauffeur - Duran Duran

Also - just got this song Apple Candy by Ben Lee - an ode to threesomes! "I want to go where he's been/I want you and I want him." OT3! ;-D
Listen to it and then go read Jack Hates by eponine119.

And you Scissor Sisters fans, you must listen to this mashup by DJ Earworm:
It's Scissor Sisters vs. George Michael vs. The Beatles vs. Aretha Franklin and surprisingly it works!
- No One Takes Your Freedom

Enjoy!

I know, isn't it an amazing song? Of course I hear slashy subtext in every song now but this one is right out there! ;-D

Almost done downloading these! Damn dial up. *grins*

I gave you "Run"?? 'Cause, erm, I never had it! Hee. But now I do, and it's delicious, so thank you! Or thank me? ;P

The audio quality of "Mascara" definitely sounds like it's from the bottom of a well. Clear, just distant. Or I could picture them playing this in an abandoned tunnel in the NYC subway system, and some person hearing it from a grate somewhere above.

Anyway... thank you!! *smooches*

Really, that wasn't from you? Heh. I could have sworn it was. Oh well, now you have it. Tee hee.

I do wonder about how they recorded "Mascara" - maybe it's just a vocal effect, like singing through one of those trumpets like they did in the '20s? ;-D Or it's a bootleg? Who knows?

Enjoy them all and hope your cds arrive soon!

Oh, hey, those are all Real Media files. If you have them in mp3, that would be groovy! Thanks! If too much trouble, don't worry about it!
