I like music, you like music...let's just listen to some music together

Beyoncé - Countdown

Countdown - Beyoncé

Killing me softly
And I’m still falling
Still the one I need
I will always be with you
Oh, you got me all gone
Don’t ever let me go

Nicki Minaj - Pound the Alarm

Pound the Alarm - Nicki Minaj

The Mountain Goats - Old College Try

Old College Try - The Mountain Goats

From the cities to the swamplands
From the highways to the hills
Our love has never had a leg to stand on
From the aspirins to the cross-tops to the Elevils

But I will walk down to the end with you
If you will come all the way down with me

Domino - Jessie J

I’m tardy to the party but ever since I went to London (where this song was constantly playing in my hostel lounge), I’ve been obsessed with this song. The video is also absolutely fab, bright and graphic and eyecatching without being (as Liz Lemon would say) hipster nonsense.

Volverte a Ver - Juanes (on MTV Unplugged)

This is beyond pretty!

Call Me Maybe - Fun. (Carly Rae Jepson cover)

I know, I know, this song is insufferable, but just listen. This cover really beautiful, honest! (And also kudos for not switching “boys” to “girls”)

We Are Young (Acoustic) - Fun. feat Janelle Monae

This is so beautiful. And props to fun. for recognizing that they seriously underused Janelle in the original and had her sing more here.

I Need A Dollar - Aloe Blacc

Oh, Donna. <3

QueenS - THEESatisfaction

Peter Gabriel - The Book of Love

The book of love has music in it
In fact that’s where music comes from
Some of it’s just transcendental
Some of it’s just really dumb

But I…
I love it when you sing to me
And you…
You can sing me anything

Primitive Girl - M. Ward

Near Death Experience - Andrew Bird

Out on the Town (Bonus Track) - fun.

Best overall song on the album.

Some Nights - Fun.

Fantastical, operatic, larger-than-life - this song (and entire album, honestly) is perfection.
