Tales from Urban Dilettantia


More Heart Than Me

Music has, as ever, been a saving grace in an upsy-downy year, and so I’m sharing a few of the songs that have been stuck in my head throughout.  Some of these took quite a bit of finding, being rare/old/live, and the last one I think, is surely one of my theme songs for the year almost gone.

My Friend the Chocolate Cake – More Heart Than Me
Jeff Martin – Love The One You’re With (cover) – I don’t think a good video of this exists, so you’ll just have to go buy the album.  It’s just about my favourite love song of all time.
The Tallest Man on Earth – The Wheel – rare piano version; this just breaks my heart.
The Tallest Man on Earth – The Gardener
Billy Bragg – Greetings to the New Brunette
Machine Gun Fellatio – Unsent Letter
Nick Drake – Time Has Told Me
Pendulum – Propane Nightmares
Manic Street Preachers – You Stole the Sun from My Heart
Radiohead – No Surprises
Tom Waits – The Piano Has Been Drinking
The Triffids – Tender is the Night
Tool – Wings for Marie
Lou Reed – Perfect Day
Warren Zevon – Poor Poor Pitiful Me
Karnivool – Sleeping Satellite (cover)
Kaki King – Pull Me Out Alive
Amanda Palmer – In My Mind

But maybe it isn’t all that funny,
   but I’ve been fighting all my life.
   But maybe I have to think it’s funny,
   if I want to live before I die,
   and maybe it’s funniest of all, to think I’ll die before I actually see
   that I am exactly the person that I want to be.

I like animals with too many or too few legs.
