My Violet Femmes memories are tied up in riding around with my high school best friend in his car -- how funny!

I still like the Ryan Adams version of "When the Stars Go Blue" but I'll have to check out the version you listed.

Thanks for the song recs!

Love this list!
And, I agree, that Violent Femmes album rocks!


I forgot to comment! But I love your songs. I love the Eye one, I think that you gave it to me, in fact. I don't know the song by Lady Gaga, so I'm not judging you. I'm going to have to check out the Alice in Wonderland soundtrack now.

loved "mad about you". Alot of the songs you mentioned are unfamiliar to me so I had fun exploring on youtube. thanks.


"I'm meeting people, nice people too. I'm meeting Peeeeeeeoooople, NICE PEOPLE LIKE YOU."
Gordon Gano makes me so happy. I think part of what made me love "The Time Travelers Wife" even more was the shout out to the Violent Femmes. Sigh.

Ok, so now I'm going crazy trying to remember the car type for the "cherry"! I honestly can not remember. I'll have to ask my sisters if they remember. You are very tied to music in my mind. You were the one that introduced me to so much music. Remember the tapes you would send to me in Maryland! I had to laugh when you talked about the Lady Gaga song. I found myself enjoying one of her songs the other day and actually thought to myself "what would Amy think?!?" So yes, it's my guilty pleasure too. Lately I've been going back to a lot of old music. I too recently was listening to Violent Femmes, Tori, Depeche and Alphaville. I'm not familiar with some of the songs you have in your list. I'll have to look them up. I know if you like them, I will too.

Thanks for this post! I actually wrote my own blog post on this very topic. Btw, I love your blog, and I lurk over here by way of Jamie's blog.
