Had a great time at the show last night. Thanks to everyone who made it!
And now, some songs that will hopefully get me back on Curt's good side.
36. Two Door Cinema Club – “You’re Not Stubborn”
Well, that was easy ...
37. Sambassadeur – “High and Low”
After this, only one more Sweden song on the list. It's a bittersweet feeling. We've all been through so much on this countdown. You, me, Swedish pop music ... so many memories.
38. Neon Indian – “Sleep Paralysist”
Highest ranking chillwave song on the list. Ilana's dream is to one day invent a ridiculous-sounding catchphrase that somehow becomes a permanent part of American cultural discourse, like "death panels" or "trickle-down economics." I think I would like to invent a genre. It doesn't seem that hard.
39. Jeremy Messersmith – “Violet!”
Ilana and I both think this sounds like the theme song for a 1960's sitcom. I get the feeling, though, that only one of us sees that as a huge compliment.
40. Apples in Stereo – “Hey Elevator”
Previously discussed here.
