2. Radiohead - 15 Step
3. TV on the Radio - Wolf Like Me
4. DJ Shadow - Building Steam with a Grain of Salt
5. Boy Hits Car - Tonight
6. Audioslave - Yesterday to Tomorrow
7. System of a Down - Soldier Side
8. Queens of the Stone Age - Go with the Flow
9. Nine Inch Nails - Only
10. Deftones - Back to School (Mini Maggit) [Live]
J.T.B.'s post reminds me that I wanted to get into The Band a while ago, ever since I heard This Wheel's On Fire.
Carry that Weight - Beatles
Stranger on the Shore - Pete Fountain
Sultans of Swing - Dire Staights
What a Fool Believes - Doobie Brothers
I Was the One - Jimmie Dale Gilmore
El Paso - Marty Robbins
If You Could Read My Mind - Gordon Lightfoot
Sweet Home Alabama - Lynard Skynyrd

Nightingale Sang in Berkeley Square - New Vaudville Band
  1. "Everything Back But You" — Avril Lavigne
  2. "Hamburg Song" — Keane
  3. "Hey Paula" — Paul & Paula
  4. "Boy with a Coin" — Iron & Wine
  5. "The Obvious Child" — Paul Simon
  6. "Ordinary Day" — Vanessa Carlton
  7. "Rescue in a Wreck" — Eric Serra (from Le Grand Bleu)
  8. "He's a Tramp" — Bette Midler
  9. "Here with Me" — Michelle Branch
  10. "All I Ask of You" — Emmy Rossum and Patrick Wilson (from The Phantom of the Opera 2004 film soundtrack)
  1. Omen (Random Trio), "Frontline," Tectonic Plates
  2. Rapoon, "Horizon Discrete," Time Frost
  3. Richard Hawley, "Aran Loop," Run For Me EP
  4. Sonic Youth, "In The Mind Of The Bourgeois Reader," Experimental Jet Set, Trash and No Star
  5. The Cramps, "Bikini Girls With Machine Guns," Stay Sick!
  6. His Name Is Alive, "No More The Moon," Silver Makeup single
  7. El-P, "Posenville Kids No Wins / Reprise (This Must Be Our Time)," I'll Sleep When You're Dead
  8. Scorn, "Super Mantis (Original Mix)," Super Mantis Part 1 single
  9. Sally Shapiro, "Moonlight Dance," My Guilty Pleasure
  10. Ella Fitzgerald, "Just One of Those Things," The Complete Ella Fitzgerald Song Books
If there's anyone on TrekBBS who has as many as three of those songs, I'd be (pleasantly) surprised. None of them strike me as all that obscure, aside from possibly Omen (Random Trio), a dubstep artist who doesn't have any solo albums (that track is from a label comp). But most of the people here seem to have pretty mainstream tastes.
  1. Frank Sinatra — "The Way You Look Tonight" — Nothing but the Best
  2. Elton John — "Amy" — Honky Château
  3. Dido — "Let's Do the Things We Normally Do" — Safe Trip Home
  4. Jean-Claude Petit — "Jean de Florette Theme" — Pure Cinema Chillout
  5. Howard Shore — "The Hornburg" — LOTR: The Two Towers
  6. Alanis Morissette — "Mary Jane" — Jagged Little Pill
  7. Gorillaz — "Clint Eastwood" — Gorillaz
  8. The Chambers Brothers — "Romeo & Juliet" — The Time Has Come
  9. Patrick Doyle — "Rich Shall She Be" — Much Ado About Nothing
  10. Safe Ferris — "Come On Eileen" — It Means Everything

^ The XX are a superb band. I just bought their new album yesterday and it's one of my favourites of the year by a long way. Beautiful songs.
I read some reviews that dropped a lot of references to stuff I like -- Young Marble Giants, Tricky, Raveonettes, dubstep -- and knew I had to check them out. They live up to it, too; they're definitely something special.
