This would require the type of time and sensitive information that I would wish to get
compensated for. Just giving away a list of your boiled down essence --->a list of yr 50
most cherished songs... to anonymous strangers ... who may in turn go on to turn a buck
at your expense.... seems a little foolhardy. More than once I've seen something I or
others said or referenced suspiciously end up in a well known blog which someone got
paid for. Not us.

Anyways, maybe I'm just being paranoid. Or stingy?
Maybe.


Anyhoots, cheers!
Thanks for your essense.

All right, I finally finished mine! There are links to each song, although some of them are live and such, and I wasn't about to spend hours uploading studio versions of a bunch of songs.

They're not all in the alternative / indie genres, but there are a handful of those included.

I'll probably realize that I've overlooked something particularly obvious at some point. There's only one song per band / artist, as well.

8.) Sound Tribe Sector 9 - Metameme
9.) Themselves - It's Them
10.) Busdriver - Imaginary Places
11.) Electric Prunes - I Had Too Much To Dream (Last Night)
12.) Mike Gordon - Take Me Out, Pt. 2

15.) Julia Nunes - Balloons
16.) The Ramones - I Just Want To Have Something To Do
17.) The Polyphonic Spree - Section 14 (Two Thousand Places)
18.) The Dresden Dolls - Dear Jenny
19.) The Disco Biscuits - Home Again
20.) Old Crow Medicine Show - Wagon Wheel
21.) Jeff Buckley - Corpus Christi Carol
