That girl is a complete force of nature. To be able to perform, at 11 or 12 years old, not only with that level of skill but with that complete lack of self-consciousness is astonishing to me. I'm convinced she's going on to great things.
Now you're in the *spoiler* place.

Absolutely. I watched two of her performances on Ellen as well, and she seems to pour her soul into it every time.

Anyone remember this song?





The Bangles' cover is pretty good too:

Damn, I like both of those a lot.

Elvis Costello is one of my weird musical blindspots. I'm familiar with the hits, and I like everything I've heard, but I just never got around to diving into his output.

That whole album (When I Was Cruel) is good... has a very crisp sound and innovative bass lines. Not sure why people don't talk about it more. It's Elvis Costello's Punch Drunk Love.

Maggie Rogers - Alaksa

Man, I thought you we're going to post Thriller. Which actually is a really good song from a really good album. Possibly the greatest true pop release ever.

Pete Yorn is back. I know you're all as excited as I am. This is a really good song.

Obsessed with this for like a week. Neil Young can hit you emotionally out of nowhere. I'm not even a big fan and every now and then I chuck on a track from him and I get destroyed.

Like you, I am not a huge Neil Young fan at all, but I had the same reaction with Tell Me Why a few months ago. There is something in the first seconds, the melody, that instantly hit me...It felt like a song I had a deep connection with, but I didn't even know who Neil Young was when I was a child. I didn't even know who he was three years ago.

I had the same thing with Out on the Weekend.



I'm so many people.

Love Melanie Martinez. I actually happened to watch the season of The Voice when she was a competitor, and stopped watching when she was eliminated. Some of her songwriting borders on precocious, but her voice is so good.

Here's a video of her singing one of my favorite Margot & the Nuclear So and So's songs:

Random reminder that this is one of the best Weird Al songs.
