Music meme. A long long time ago in a galaxy far far away, mosca
gave me a letter of the alphabet. Now I give you five songs that start with the letter E. Files via yousendit, since savefile is currently being wonky. Weezer - El Scorcho.
(Articles count if they're non-English. *thbbbbbbbbbbbbbblt*) God damn you half-Japanese girls.
Seriously, has there been a better, odder way to open a song? I think not. I have extra love for this song because of the line "or the redhead said to shred the cello." I knew that chick. Just, you know, not biblically. No matter what her husband thought.
Pairs well with: kegs of beer.Radiohead- Electioneering
This is one of my favorite Radiohead songs. Or, at least one of my favorite Radiohead-with-bone-crunching-guitar-
songs. Snarling leads, snarling vocals, the disdainful it's just business.
This goes on repeat during every election season.
Pairs well with: hard cider and a blow upside the head.Steve Earle - Everyone's in Love with You
I shouldn't love this song like I do. His voice is a ruined growl, it makes my throat ache to listen to him. But I feel that bone-aching feeling of loving the wrong damned person, too.
Pairs well with: cheap bourbon. Los Fabulosos Cadillacs- El Matador
(see first entry. said rule was written for this song) Open up for some Rock En Espanol circa '96 or so. Great loping beat, horns, vocals and a fantastic breakdown.
Pairs well with: cana
Ella Fitzgerald- Embraceable You
One of my all-time favorite singers, singing a lush arrangement of a Gershwin classic. I don't think I need to say more.
Pairs well with: fine wine and firelight
