Tom Waits - Hell Broke Luce

Ween - I can't Put My Finger On It

White Stripes - Blue Orchid

Things are really effed up in my life right now and I've been pretty absent from the Song Fight scene lately, but I'm in. Song choices:

The Dismemberment Plan - You Are Invited

The Thermals - Returning to the Fold

Harvey Danger - Meetings with Remarkable Men

Bloc Party - Uniform

I'll get some mp3's up on Saturday, I just wanted to make sure I got my choices in by the deadline.

(EDIT: DONE.)

Sorry for the delay. Here's some links and a change :)

*Chloroform Girl - Polkadot Cadaver


*Stay a little Longer - Bob Wills did this,
(also Willie Nelson and Asleep at the Wheel did this too - among others; but I like the Hot Club of Cowtown Version (an Austin-based swing trio) best of all.)

*J. Edgar - Ry Cooder (I originally wanted his 'Dirty Chateau' off his "Pull up some dirt and sit down" but cannot find an Internet version. Here's another one I like off 'My Name is Buddy.' I could only find a link.

*Keep Your Hands to Yourself - Georgia oSattelites

I've entered 4 times
I've stiffed twice
And come in late twice
Ken says I should be banned
I think I agree
However I have received the most awesome gifts every time I entered
I love a lot of the songs posted so far
Perhaps I'll post 4 songs
But if anyone deserves to be stiffed it's me.

Oh, that is a hell of a pick! That makes me want to go back and re-do some of my picks! Niv, can I modify my entries? :)
