Other Things I Have Been Listening To...a LOT

**You can download mp3s here for all of the following except for the Laura Veirs song which I can't make work--so the link for that song goes directly to her Myspace page which immediately plays the song.**
SONGS THAT MAKE ME GIDDY-HAPPY:
"Don't Lose Yourself" by Laura Veirs

"Sun in an Empty Room" by the Weakerthans


SONGS THAT MAKE ME MELANCHOLY-HAPPY:
"Kookaburra" by John Vanderslice

"Boy From School" by Hot Chip

"Hold On, Hold On" by Neko Case

THIS POST JUST KEEPS GROWING:
I know the following are older offerings, but I am so in love with Neko Case's strong, mesmerizing voice right now that I went and found two of my favorite New Pornographers' songs. I only seem to "get" this band when Neko sings; can anyone recommend a great song of theirs in which she doesn't sing the lead vocals?

"The Bones of an Idol" by New Pornographers
"These are the Fables" by New Pornographers
What do you think?

Jeremy,
Thanks--do they not work for just this post or for the previous ones as well?

Laura Veirs!

Leah and I went and saw her the last time she came through T.O. - it was pretty rad.

Saw the NP's not too long ago.

"Use It" is a good one.
