“Cobrastyle” Feat. Mad Cobra – Teddybears I have had this song in my playlist for over two years. Great for driving with the windows down, wind in your hair. Teddybears MySpace.
“Sunshine” – Atmosphere This one is new to me, Atmosphere is a Minneapolis based duo. “Sunshine, sunshine is fine. I feel it in my skin, warmin’ up my mind. Sometimes you’ve got to give in to win. I love the days when it shines. Whoa let it shine.” Gotta like that! Atmosphere MySpace.
“Street Soldier” Deep Thoughts Mashup – Rench Strange. This mashup made me do a double take…seriously. I laughed, shook my head, turned it off and moved on to something else. But then, I came back, and listened again…I don’t know what it is, but it makes me smile. Gangstagrass is a mashup album produced by Rench and is offered for free download here. From the Rench website:
a full-length mashup of Underground hip-hop vocals with Rench beats and straight up bluegrass samples. It features some of the really talented emcees I have recorded at Rench Audio, including Infinitee, TONE, and Deep Thoughts/Kaz-Mir from Black Market. It also features tons of uncleared samples from early bluegrass, folk ballads, and blues, and more current bluegrass stuff as well – Thats why its all there for free download.
“Nattoppet” – Detektivbyran My first thought is that this song should accompany some Pixar animation, or be on a television commercial. Now that I’ve said that, I wonder if it isn’t already? Google search…yes! Apparently this song was featured in a Sprint commercial. Detektivbyran MySpace.

Starr and I took a nice walk Wednesday afternoon. It was a beautiful day, Starr was full of information, ideas and gossip. It was fun.
I posted this song last month, but it seemed to fit the day…well, mostly:
“Walk in the Park” – Oh No! Oh My!

I am beginning to wonder if there is a pattern here. Anyway, spent a little time looking through my mp3 links and found these:
“Circles” – Porter Block –This song felt a little XTC-ish to me on first listen, and actually they’ve changed it since I first heard it. Personally, I liked the old version a bit better, but no one asked me.
“Oh My” – Office –Starr made an iTunes style “celebrity playlist” a month or so ago, and this is what she wrote about this song: “It’s like being surrounded and overtaken by the fast paced craziness of life, then searching for an out with someone calm and safe. I don’t know how else to say it.”
“Shiny” – The Decemberists –This was my first introduction to The Decemberists. I loved the atmosphere of it.

I am in a world of pain, so I thought that I would post a couple “soothing” songs to go along with my headache today, but I found these instead:
“So Says I” – The Shins
“Fearful” – Beat Radio
“Like a Lily” – Out of Clouds
“All This Time” – Heartless Bastards
