Songs as Smack

pThis afternoon I sat down to do a mix CD for my two erstwhile bandmates – this is something we decided would be a good idea, so we could better understand each others music outlook blah blah blah… y’know, the kind of pretentious thing we Pisco three get up to.br /br /Anyway, I decided that it would be interesting for both themselves and me if i was just to pick songs that have completely consumed me recently. That rare manner of song that I have played on repeat for 40 mins on the way to work, then sang all day, and then listened to again for 40 mins on the way home. It happens infrequently, but when it does its like instant gratification of the most potent varitety. And after flying through my shelves of CDs, ripping out album after album containing that one, choice track which has consumed me, what did I discover…?br /br /… well, nothing more than I am hoplessly fickle, and that if there is a connection between them, its beyond me to spot, at least with the examples I found below. Therefore I post this strange collection of tunes here (these tunes bear in mind that have totally dominated my listening at one point or another) as the inagural post on the Pisco blog. If you can spot anything that ties these tunes togther (other than the fact that they’re all fucking good), please let me know.
