Because Apparently Pandora is Racist

I forgot that you can’t join in the fun unless you’re connecting from the States. Well BOO! So, by way of apology, here’s the first ten songs (UN-CENSORED! So you still might find that holey undeywarez) that rolled up on Pandora for me this morning, complete with youtube links so you can listen in. I’ll also note what I’ve rated each song, along with a little blurb.

  1. Hiding Knives by Junius – Thunb’s Up – I’ve never heard of this song or this band until I started listening to Pandora.
  2. Champagne from a Paper Cup by Deathcab for Cutie – Thumb’s Up, but I hit the skip button this morning – The slow plodding beat was bringin’ me down so, moovin’ on. I remember listening to Deathcab for Cutie a few years ago, but this particular song is new.
  3. Lakes by Cities – Thumb’s Up – I couldn’t find this on Youtube 😦 It wasn’t a very remarkable song, I think I’m skipping it this morning.
  4. Ode to the Sun by Dredg – Thumb’s Definitely Up – I really like this song, it’s another new one through Pandora. I don’t like the live version all that much, but that’s all I could find 😦
  5. Bittersweet Symphony by The Verve – Thumb’s Up – Here’s some of that old undiepants I was talking about. I like the song… and I was listening to it when it came out. It was during the 90’s that I first started becoming aware of the world around me. There’s a number of songs that reflect that.
  6. In My Place by Coldplay – Thumb’s Up – Mmmmm, Brit Pop. I thought I hated pop, I guess not. Not one of my very most favorites but it’s pleasant to listen through. Another new one through Pandora.
  7. Wherever You Will Go by The Calling – Unrated, then I gave it a Thumb’s Up – This one sounds vaguely familiar, but I hadn’t encountered it on Pandora until just this morning!
  8. Wonderwall by Oasis – Thumbs Up – This song is new-ish to me, but not through Pandora. It’s one of my favorites though.
  9. The Clincher by Chevelle – Thumbs Up – A bit jarring after that smooth dose of Oasis, but my tastes in music are quite varied and I’ve made frequent use of Pandora’s ‘Add Variety’ feature πŸ˜€
  10. April Fools and The Eggmen by Fair to Midland – Thumbs WAY Up! – Boy do you all have a treat for #10! This is my new favorite song, seriously. I’ve completely fallen in love with Fair to Midland ever since I heard their hit single ‘Dance of the Manatee’ on the radio. I dug forever to find a decent recording of them on Youtube, but I could only find live performances of this song 😦 For a better idea of how they sound see their Dance of the Manatee video.

I hope you’ve all enjoyed this dip into some of the things I’m listening to, it doesn’t really begin to scratch the surface though. Maybe I could choose 3 songs from Pandora a week and make this a weekly feature πŸ™‚

I do so love music!

  1. Thanks for helping us out, Tiger! I’ll check these out when I get home. πŸ™‚

  2. I’m almost certain I also found that exact Dredg song via Pandora =) However, I’ve loved Chevelle for a couple years, and Vena Sera is still one of my favorite albums of the last few years.

    Glad to hear the druid community has its share of good taste in music!

  3. Doh! That particular Chevelle track isn’t even on Vena Sera! If you do like ’em though, make sure you give their newer album a listen if you haven’t already.

    Psht, of COURSE we have good taste in music! We’re all natur-ey and in ‘tune’ with the ‘rhythm’ of life…

    c wut I did thar?


    As far as Chevelle goes, I’m pretty sure I’m hearing their latest stuff on the radio pretty regularly. I’m a big fan of Breaking Benjamin, Three Days Grace, Seether, and Trapt too πŸ™‚
