I hear they're city boys, born and raised in South Detroit, so that's practically the South.

Kandace Springs - Place to Hide 2
Flaming Ember - Westbound #9 6
Electric Light Orchestra - Showdown 4
Dizzy Gillespie - Manteca 6
They Might Be Giants - Careful What You Pack 3

Big Audio Dynamite - E=MC² 10 Firmly in my top 100 and that's unlikely to change any time before I post my AT list. Sounds from another world, not one that's any more futuristic than ours presently, but on an otherworldly beam nonetheless.

Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers - All the Wrong Reasons: 7

Pretty solid song from Tom Petty. By this time he had perfected a sort of gliding feeling in his music that makes it very pleasing to listen to.

Ella Fitzgerald – Don’t Get Around Much Anymore: 5
Tastefully done, but it doesn't particularly grab me. I feel like both Fitzgerald and Ellington have more powerful works.

I couldn’t agree more! Great song - the samples and clever wordplay built around films directed by Nicolas Roeg are awesome!

It sounds like a song that exists out of time…

A 10 from me as well!

Close to an 8, but it meanders every now and then, but through its many parts it hits on more than a few cool moments. Surprisingly experimental too.

Bob Dylan – One Too Many Mornings: 7
This used to be one of my least favorite recordings by Dylan of this period, but it has really grown on me. Maybe the weariness that comes from the song has to be experienced, which makes it all the more remarkable that Dylan was still very young when he recorded this.
It always struck me as odd that Johnny Cash and June Carter used this particular Dylan song as the basis of one of their most energetic recordings. That works too though, as they turn it into a comedy of sorts.

Yup, to the uninitiated, it might just sound like a blur of disconnected images but it makes me want to see the likes of The Man Who Sold the World Fell to Earth, Performance...

(...easy Bowie-related mistake to make :whistle: )

Huerco S. - Prinzif:7

A strange song, not in the least because it already fades out and stops very early, leaving us only with the sound of static. Only to start again in a completely different mode and eventually getting around again, with added static. Still, it manages to create a nice atmosphere.

It’s been a long time, but this is one Prosecutorgodot’s traditional nominations, so one without a clear artist mentioned (it has been attributed to Mozart at times, but this is usually disputed). I just picked one that is popular on Spotify, but if Prosecutorgodot can name his favourite that would be great.

894. Traditional – Dona Nobis Pacem (Canon)
Year: Who knows
Biggest Fan: prosecutorgodot (#665)

Traditional – Dona Nobis Pacem (Canon): 8

In contrast to the other traditional songs from prosecutorgodot's list I don't actually know this piece, which is probably proof if needed that I am uncultured. It is a strong and uplifting, choral song though.

Cee Lo Green is in fine form, but the backing has been stronger with Gnarls Barkley.
