When I'm working, I tend to pick one song and hit the repeat button. Picking the right song for this is an art. It has to be something you won't get sick of, but won't be so involving that I can't work. Here are the songs that are most likely to make the cut. Any suggestions?
  1. America- Simon & Garfunkle
    A very meditative song with great lyrics. Great for calm moods.
  2. Eurotrash Girl - Cracker
    I love a song that tells a story, and the bluesy guitar work on this is excellent.
  3. Nothing Came Out - The Moldy Peaches
    This is the high school poem I wish I had written.
  4. Baby Blue - Badfinger
    Ever since the Breaking Bad finale this has been haunting me.
  5. The Funeral - Band of Horses
    Speaking of haunting. This song takes me out of this world.
  6. Zac and Sara - Ben Folds
    I could make a list of just Ben Folds songs, but this is my current favorite. Sara has serious issues.
  7. Three Little Birds - Bob Marley
    Some times you just have to know that Every Little Thing is Gonna Be All Right.
  8. Daria - Cake
    Another song that tells a story. A weird, weird story.
  9. We Used to be Friends - The Dandy Warhols
    If I'm listening to this, chances are I'm pissed off.
  10. Skateaway- Dire Straits
    Tora Tora Taxi...
  11. Where is My Mind - The Pixies
    I actually have six covers of this song, but the Pixies did it first so I'll credit them.
  12. Trust - Generationals
    Great lyrics and rhythm.
  13. Scottie Doesn't Know - Lustra
    Meanest song I know.
  14. Surrey With the Fringe on Top - Miles Davis
    Great for when I need to go entirely without lyrics.
  15. Working Man - Rush
    My "I got shit to do" song.
  16. Live Circus - Tom Waits
    Another story song, Tom Waits at the top of his game.
  17. Poncho and Lefty - Townes Van Zandt
    The only country song that makes my list. Another story, haunting lyrics.
  18. Roland the Headless Thompson Gunner - Warren Zevon
    I will not take the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame seriously until they induct Warren Zevon.
  19. Mr. Brightside - The Killers
    Extended Mix. So fun.
  20. Don't Answer Me - Alan Parsons Project
    My "This Argument is NOT finished" song.
  21. Mr. Blue Sky - ELO
    Getting me back to a good mood. Strange Magic is another ELO song on my list.
  22. Black Coffee in Bed - Squeeze
    Squeeze is a vastly underrated band. Great song.
