"Buttons" - Pussycat Dolls [buy album]
... I, um... a friend sent this to me...and I forgot to delete it? Oh, who am I kidding, I totally get dressed to this every morning.
"Stuck Inside Of Mobile With The Memphis Blues Again" - Bob Dylan [buy album]
Pussycat Dolls to Bob Dylan. I like to think of myself as a well-rounded person. Yep, that's how I'm gonna spin this, and I'm sticking to it. Blood On The Tracks is my favorite Dylan album, but Blonde On Blonde is a close second.
"As Long As You're Mine" - Cast of Wicked [buy album]
Really bringing out the skeletons here. Okay, I was obsessed with this play for a while. And yes, I am straight. When I worked at NBC, I had the pleasure of getting free tickets to see a private matinee show with its original cast, including the amazing Idina Menzel and Kristin Chenowith. I'm not a big musical theater fan, but my God, this was amazing. I walked around the city for the next month constantly listening to the soundtrack on my iPod and unabashedly singing along. This was also a dateless month for me. Probably no correlation there.
"Hard To Live (In The City)" - Albert Hammond Jr. [buy album]
Click on the above link and buy this album. It is wonderful.
"As You Wish" - Aqueduct [buy album]
David Terry writes incredibly catchy melodies, and this song definitely reflects that. Lyrically, "As You Wish" is entirely based around lines from The Princess Bride, which is awesome. Also check out "Living A Lie" from this album.
"Publish My Love" - Rogue Wave [buy album]
Of course, we can't go an iPod Shuffle without encountering a song once featured on The OC. I hear Schwartz's NBC pilot, Chuck, turned out really well, and I am told he uses some great tunes in the show, which of course comes as no surprise. The buzz is also good for his other pilot, Gossip Girl, for The CW. Here's some insider scoop regarding what the pilot landscape's looking like for the upcoming upfronts.
"Dizzy" - Ours [buy album]
I've talked about this band before for one reason: Jimmy Gnecco, their lead singer. The best male voice I've ever heard live. The band has a new album coming out, I think it was produced by Rick Rubin. Check out the tracks on MySpace.
"Soul Singer In A Session Band" - Bright Eyes [buy album]
I like the new album. This is one of the better songs off of it. Random thought of the day: Tobey Maguire looked a lot like Conor Oberst with his emo-Spidey-angry-hair in Spiderman 3. Fact of the day: Spiderman 3 was extremely disappointing.
"Eight Days A Week" - The Beatles
Best band ever, duh. Love this song, but didn't post it 'cause I don't want to get sued. Also love Ted from Scrubs singing it at Turk's wedding in Season Three, which you can see at the end of this clip. Speaking of "Eight Days A Week", there's a pilot at The CW with the same title that sounds pretty interesting. Starring Mario Lopez (Slater!), Anna Chlumsky (My Girl!), Johnny Lewis (Chili!), and Christina Milian (Hot!), it's a single-cam comedy about "four twentysomethings who work for the top movers and shakers in New York." I'd watch that.
"What A Girl Wants" - Christina Aguilera [buy album]
Really? This is what we're ending with? My iTunes hates me. And I kind of hate myself too. We're never playing this game again.
