A couple of days ago people starting playing their tour mix cd’s in the van, a routine tour manager Joe established on our last promenade around America. Everyone must sit and listen to an hours worth of music you select and then clap politely at the end.

For this reallllllly long drive we are all  listening to Gareths. I am very much enjoying it so far, including the little musical interludes from Frank Sidebottom who is a personal hero of his.

Mine was yesterday and here it is in full with brief annotations.

O Soundtrack my heart – Pivot 
Five Seconds (featuring Odd Nostom) – Peeping Tom (In retrospect I don’t think this song was well placed and is more of a third to last album track)
Hot N Cold – Katy Perry (our guitar tech Avel loves her work and her bum)
I Want You – Elvis Costello & The Atrractions (my friend Matt put this on a mix cd for me for my birthday, and I am a little bit obsessed with the melodrama of it)
Pot Kettle Black – Tilly & The Wall
You Oughta Know – Alanis Morisette (A trip down memory lane for us all. When I put this on in the car I use to try coughing over the swearing so my mum wouldn’t make me turn the CD off.)
Half Half & Half – Oxes
Oasis – Amanda Palmer
Animals – CocoRosie
And the Hazy Sea – Cymbals Eat Guitars
Growls Garden – Clark
Open Sky – The Distillers (in honor of her past glory days rather then the disappointment that is Spinnerette)
Howl – Florence & the Machine 
how it ends – DeVotchka (by this point the cd started skipping but it seemed to add to the overall ambience of this track. It’s that one off the Gears of War advert)
In conclusion it seems I chosen a lot of bands who use & in their names.
On a side note, I was told about a idiotic psychological experiment last night in which small children were put in a room with a single marshmallow.
They were told they could eat it straight away OR they could wait ten minutes without eating it and get two. The ones who ate it straight away all went to jail and failed at life, but the ones who waited it out now run all the countries. I think that’s the stupidest marshmallow based psychological experiment I have ever heard about.

marshmallow thing be true ellen! ere it be in full TED glory:

Comment by Jack Clemoes (frost's mate from cardiff)

that’s my favourite elvis costello song precisely for that reason. I love how it starts off faux sweet and then turns so vicious. I wish he still did songs like that…

Comment by Aidan

that marshmellow story sounds awesome.

Comment by dave

The DeVotchka song is also pretty key in the Little Miss Sunshine soundtrack, which was a pretty fun movie.

And now that I know you listen to Tilly and the Wall, and I think you should recruit me as your band’s tap dancer. I don’t currently tap dance, but I can learn. Have fun in Austin.

Comment by Kyle from TX

that’s one of my favorite Elvis Costello songs. the melodrama is perfect, he sounds so obsessive and unhinged

Comment by Annie

This came up well weird on Google Reader. Subliminal messages perhaps?
