New music ideas, please.

I'm an iPod/iTunes whore. And I'm desperate for new music. I have 2,000 songs in my music library, but only 389 songs in my usual everyday playlist. I need some new stuff. I need good, new stuff. Something not by The Fray or Miley Cyrus or Jonas Brothers (heaven help me) or Katy Perry or Black Eyed Peas.

Post your 5 favorite songs in comments, all 2 of you who read this blog. Your favorite songs don't even have to be from this year--I'll take any suggestions.

To get this party started, here are my top 5 (in no particular order), using my own playlist as a guide:
1. Pick Up the Pieces -- Average White Band
2. All the Small Things -- Blink 182
3. Santa Monica -- Everclear
4. I'm Yours -- Jason Mraz
5. Leave Out All the Rest -- Linkin Park

and a few more favorites, to continue the party, because I'm in charge and I can list more than five because I say I can:
6. In Your Eyes -- Peter Gabriel
7. Closing Time -- Semisonic
8. Rock This Town -- Stray Cats
9. Hard To Handle -- Black Crows
10. I'm Beginning to See the Light -- Bobby Darrin

Give me more good stuff, oh blogger world.


  1. Okay,here are my top 5 (as of this month).
    1. My Sunken Treasure by The Duke Spirit
    2. Crack the Shutters by Snow Patrol
    3. Oh My by Sweatshop Union
    4. You are the best thing by Ray LaMontagne
    5. Cold Desert by Kings of Leon

    I would also list Black Eye Peas but you said not too :).

  2. I could never pick a top 5 because I am always listening to new music and it's constantly changing, but on our blog page I have a music player full of ALL my favorites. Some are new, some are old, and some are just stinkin' awesome. So check it out ane I hope you find something you like. I also will tell you that right now I am listening to the Kings of Leon and they are amazing!

  3. I just checked out Kings of Leon on iTunes. The album has 4.5 out of 5 stars, with 1300+ reviws--impressive! I may splurge and buy the whole album, rather than guessing which individual songs I might like. That Ray LaMontagne song sounds good, too....will check out the others as well. Thanks, ladies!!

  4. Lips of an Angel... Hinder
    Stonger...Kanye West
    Free Fallin'....John Mayer
    Let it Rock... Kevin Rudolph
    Gives You Hell... All American Rejects
    Faith Hill... Lost

    Here's a few of my faves!!!!

  5. Oooh, Lips of an Angel by Hinder--didn't know the name or artist of this song before. Thank you. It's a good one. Am buying it now....

    Already have (and love) American Rejects.

    Looking into the rest of them! Thanks, Melodie!

    p.s. Listening to Butthole Surfers right now. Ack, awful name, I know. But it was a good song they had...
