Something Good This Way Comes


The trouble, doll, is not moving mountains, but
Digging the ground that you’re on
If it’s true that good fortune gives no chase
We got just what it takes

Poppy Pop Wont Hurt You


Elisa Jordana
Singer/songwriter and former Cobra Starship keytarist Elisa Jordana grew up as Elisa Schwartz in Old Bridge, NJ, listening to New Kids on the Block and Whitney Houston, but it was Debbie Gibson who inspired her to write her own songs. She wrote her first song at age seven; by the time she was in her teens, she was writing songs for her high school's musicals. +/-

Schwartz moved to New York City at 17 and continued to write and play around the city, working with Queen Latifah's Flavor Unit group. When she saw Cobra Starship leader Gabriel Saporta at a club, she told him she should be a part of his band, and so Schwartz became the group's keytar player. She left Cobra Starship in 2007 and focused on her solo career, adopting the persona of glamorous pop star Elisa Jordana. Some of the songs she recorded at home on her computer and posted on MySpace drew attention from producers, and she worked with artists including JC Chasez and Secondhand Serenade, the Summer Obsession's Lucien "Luke Skywalker" Walker, and producer Colby O'Donis on more material

Amanda Palmer, Before She Went Solo


Dresden Dolls

I cant believe she's on her own now. They do make some weird sounds before. Yes, people, I dig it, very much. Anyway, listen to Dresden Dolls, Amanda Palmer's band before. I don't know if the break is for better. I don't really know the specifics other than she'll be releasing her recorded album, Who Killed Amanda Palmer on Sept. 16 but who cares, good music is still good music. Who would say no to that?+/-

Just the other day, the other day
I was talking to the weather man
About today oh oh oh
And all,all he could say
Was no one knows tomorrow
See I can read the weather child
I can say maybe the rain will fall
The sun will shine oh oh ohh….
But that’s as far as my story goes
No One Knows

Youve Asked for It: New Songs of Keane



Is this what you meant?
Is this
What you dreamed of?
When you were making
Your plans
Shaking the dirt off?
Do you feel like you
And I belong?
(Oh, ah, oh)
Just keep your eyes
On the road
And nothing can go wrong

Another Obsession: Sufjan Stevens


Sufjan Stevens
Sufjan Stevens (born July 1, 1975) is an American musician, songwriter, and multi-instrumentalist from Petoskey, Michigan. He is known for his lyrically focused and instrumentally rich songs that often relate to faith and family. +/-

He has enjoyed wide critical success in the United States. He is considered part of the folk revival in indie pop, but his influences are very broad, including electronica, the jazz of Vince Guaraldi, and the academic minimalism of Steve Reich and Philip Glass.

I fell in love again
all things go, all things go
drove to Chicago
all things know, all things know
we sold our clothes to the state
I don't mind, I don't mind
I made a lot of mistakes
in my mind, in my mind
