The Arcade Fire - Ready To Start

My favourite song in the list is still Maybe Smith's "Crimes and Diplomacy": an eclectic song - moving from a sort of choral dirge into... what?... electronica power pop?... before finishing out in regae - that simply holds together so well lyrically and musically that I just can't get it out of my head sometimes. "I have to take each murder as a sign that I can't believe in you" has become one of my favourite lyrics ever. It's the kind of song that's thoroughly awesome in its uniqueness yet you know it could never get radio play because it jumps through so many genres that it just doesn't "fit" anywhere in the standard pantheons of station ID's.

Anyways, currently running 78 songs. That ought to blow most of a workday.

Restating the rules: what's gone is gone, I'll patch in new stuff whenever I get around to it, the list is not guaranteed to be worksafe at any time. Not intentionally so, mind you, I just can't be bothered filtering for a problem that can be solved with a set of earphones.
