The Bell Jar / 25 October 2009

Sunday's show was the usual explosion of musical empowerment that you should expect from us hipsters at the Bell Jar; here we go with the playlist...

01. "Wishbone" by Architecture in Helsinki
02. "Artichokes" by Maps and Atlases
03. "Been True" by Tom Brosseau
04. "Boots and Birds" by Gregory and the Hawk
05. "The Dog Song" by Nellie McKay
06. "You Belong to Me" by Carla Bruni
07. "Does This Mean You're Moving On" by The Airborne Toxic Event
08. "Hot Air Balloon" by Owl City
09. "If You Want to Sing Out, Sing Out" by Cat Stevens
10. "Fast Car" by Tracy Chapman
11. "Tears Dry On Their Own" by Amy Winehouse
12. "The Angels Hung Around" by Rilo Kiley

As always, the show was sporadically broken up by witty banter between Rebecca and myself. Highlights included a debate about leggings as pants (I think they're fug, Rebecca actually wears them), some more clothing dissections (Uggs are gross), Rebecca not talking about her awesome weekend, a useless discussion on presenting musical facts, and of course, the ultimate conversation killer, the weather. Rebecca graced the air waves with another poetic recitation and I just generally talked a lot. Who needs writing when I can be so charmingly extemporaneous?

Tune in on 1 November for our next foray into the land of 1930's home entertainment. It's Rebecca's week, so expect a lot of griping from me and a lot of smug giggles from our representative of the fairer sex. Special guests are Rebecca's parents who will attempt to audibly murder me with a Beatles tribute. Keep me in your prayers.
