Songs that I've been unable to dodge lately, intentionally or not:

Editors - Papillon (Tiƫsto Remix Radio Edit)
I've come to warm to the new Editors album quite a bit. Now Tiesto's gone and remixed the first single. TASTY.

Foo Fighters - Wheels
VH1 plays the video for this song over and over and over and OVER again in the morning. Not a bad track on top of it.

Green Day - 21 Guns
Didn't care for the new Green Day much initially, but it's been growing on me lately. This song in particular keeps getting stuck in my head.

Lady GaGa - Paparazzi
A video for this song by Jonas Akerlund (he of "Smack My Bitch Up" fame) doesn't hurt, though I don't see much staying power for Miss Gaga.

Regina Spektor - Us
Heard the soundtrack for the Joseph Gordon-Levitt/Zooey Deschanel movie "500 Days Of Summer" recently and this classic Regina track on there. I keep forgetting how mushy that song can make me. It's... just an endearing song. What can I say, I'm a softy for some things.

Tonight I get to see Mr. Jon Dee Graham of Austin, TX perform at Kiki's Righteous House Of Music here in Madison. (KRHoM is actually just my friend Kiki's basement, but the acoustics are bloody awesome and she always manages to get damn good acts in there.) I first saw (and heard) Jon Dee at KRHoM back in the spring of 2007 when he was touring with the Silos. JDG played most of the set solo acoustic, and most without amplification. I was floored by the experience, and for the next two weeks after the show I searched and scratched for all of his records, even while I was out in Seattle! Maybe where my mind was at during that time led me to identify with the music more than usual, but there's no denying the guy is one hell of a musician and songwriter. I have yet to talk to him personally, but everyone I've talked to about him having nothing but great things to say about him. The fact that Jon Dee is able to tour so soon after nearly dying in a car crash earlier this year only helps magnify how lucky we all are to still have him and his music around to enjoy. To celebrate his return here is a greatest hits package I threw together a few months back. Check it out, and if you like it check the rest of his catalog. You won't be disappointed.
