Which song do you listen to when...
you try to stay up for more than 24 hours?
Dusty Springfield - You Don't Own Me

I love the simplicity and the message.

you come home from the club?
John Cale - Big White Cloud

Lay on the floor of my apartment, buzzing, lights off, imagining nature. Total opposite to a night at the club but the same euphoric feeling.

you take a bubble bath?
John Fahey - Sligo River Blues

Very relaxing instrumental. There’s a sense of unwinding.

you ride a bicycle?
Young Marble Giants - Salad Days

Because riding a bike reminds me of youth and feeling carefree.

you prepare a candle light dinner?
Otis Redding - That's How Strong My Love Is

My mom used to listen to Otis Redding when cooking and we always had candles at dinner growing up.

you go to a club?
The Seeds - Can't Seem To Make You Mine

Sexy guitar twang. I want to move my hips.

you cook?
T. Rex - Down Home Lady

Not quite sure why. I like listening to soulful music when preparing dinner, even if I'm just making a salad.

you prepare for an important date?
Blonde Redhead - Luv Machine

Not sure why exactly. I really relate with their song writing. Makes me feel more like me. It’s good to remember who you are when you have an important date.

you want to disturb your neighbours?
Sian Alice Group - Motionless

Great drum beats. My neighbors always pound on the wall when I play this one. No joke!

you drive a car late at night?
Karen Dalton - Something On Your Mind

Driving a car late at night means you must have something on your mind.

you fall asleep?
Erik Satie - 3 Gymnopedies

Beautiful piano.

you are love sick?
Beach House - Used To Be

So beautiful. Pulls at the heartstrings.

you make love?
Francis Lai - Un Homme et une femme

Very sexy and romantic.

you paint your apartment?
Fever Ray - When I Grow Up

Not sure how timeless this track will be. I just really like it right now.

you jump out of a plane with a parachute?
Galaxie 500 - 4th Of July

Feeling of floating. Plus it’s a long song. I’d imagine you’d want to savor every moment of falling through the sky.

you sit in a plane?
Cass McCombs - Not The Way

Very calming, especially when watching clouds pass.

you are in the sauna?
Serge Gainsbourg - Ballade de Melody Nelson

Steamy song!

you have to spend a night in a spooky hotel?
The Shirelles - Baby It's You

Such a pretty song, one of my all time favorites but it has always had a sort of haunting quality. I love it when something sweet and beautiful hints at a darker side.

you sit in the subway?
Moondog - This Student Of Life

This song has movement, sense of going somewhere. There’s so much to learn out on the streets.

you wake up?
The Zombies - Care Of Cell 44

The opening line «morning to you» says it all.

you need to get work done?
David Bowie - Sound And Vision

Keeps the momentum going even though it’s such a short song.
