    Just heard "Fast Car" on the radio and I was like *jaw drops*. Can't believe it was released in 1988.

    Strongly recommend you sample it in iTunes/Amazon if you haven't heard it.

    I agree...it does not seem possible. Perhaps you're a young whipper snapper?

    Yeah....seriously...where WERE you in 1988 when this was being played 17 times a day on the radio...and MTV?

    Next question...have you checked out "Give me one reason" by her? Another good one you might have missed living in that cardboard box!

    Well I'm 24 so I guess I was only 2 years old when she was big. But even so, don't know how I avoided her for this long!

    Habious: I'm just downloading (through Amazon) her self titled album - doesn't look like "Give me one reason" is on it :/

The song was nominated for several Grammies including the Grammy for "Song Of The Year" and "Record Of The Year". The song won a Grammy for "Best Female Pop Vocal Performance" setting Chapman's career in motion.[1]

    BTW, has anyone else checked out that untitled Led Zeppelin album with the old man carrying a bag of sticks on the cover? Awesome! There's this "Stairway" song that goes on for like 20 minutes!
    wow really never seen that one ????

    Well if we listed every great Costello song we'd be here a while.

    I always loved the Kim Wayans skit .
    ‎"Is that suck and salvage the Kevin Costner method?" - Chris Matthews on Hardball, July 6, 2010. Wonder if he's talking about his oil device or his movie career...

    If you'd like to be completely and utterly blown away by a song, download Jeff Buckley's version of "Hallelujah".

    Sit in a quiet, dark room and either put it on your best stereo or get out your best headphones...and just listen to his version. Do nothing else for those 7 minutes...just listen.

    Powerful song...powerful rendition.

    Then, when you're done listening, pull up Jeff Buckley's page on Wikipedia and read about his life (short read). Then come back and tell me your thoughts on it all.

    I really like his version -- I'd heard it before, at the end of some movie -- and its driving me nuts trying to remember which ...

    BTW -- Leonard Cohen's performs his own music with an almost haunting kind of monotone -- piercingly.

    I recommend the: "Songs of Leonard Cohen" as a start for those unfamiliar with his work.

    Yeah, personally I prefer Leonard's version, but the covers are nice (buckley, kd lang).

    Like his best....but my second favorite is Rufus Wainright's cover.

    As an occasional musician, the first time I heard the beginning of that song, I thought it was the greatest verse ever written, because as he says "the fourth, the fifth, the minor fall, the major lift", those are the chords playing in time with the words. Of course that was 25 years ago...but it's still very cool.

    I think it was in the Watchmen? EDIT: never mind...that was Cohen's version.

    It was played during the end of a West Wing episode ("Posse Comitatus")...and used VERY well. That's where I first heard it.

    What? You didn't notice it in "Shrek"?

    Mark Harmon's death was tough on PJ.
