Added a ShareThis button for all you dying to share the awesomeness.

If you're looking for an awesome song you haven't heard before you are in the right place. This site represents a playlist systematically designed to maximize AWESOMENESS by meeting the following critera:

  • It's AWESOME.
  • It's fairly obscure. This is obviously a subjective standard, but I don't want songs that everyone's heard no matter how awesome.
  • You can listen to it right now online for free.


Fiona Apple

So Fiona Apple...

I'm not sure I'm willing to endorse her as a concept, but I definitely like some of her songs. This is a particular favorite. On the flip side she just doesn't really seem to be someone you'd want to hang around with. There's an aura of self-indulgence to naming your album:

WHEN THE PAWN hits the conflicts he thinks like a king / What he knows throws the blows when he goes to the fight / And he'll win the whole thing before he enters the ring / There's no body to batter when your mind is your might / So when you go solo, you hold your own hand / And remember that depth is the greatest of heights / And if you know where you stand, then you know where to land / And if you fall it won't matter, cuz you'll know that you're right

And also I'm just not sure she's a shiny happy person.

As a child of the MTV generation I'm a little mystified by why I seem completely incapable of discerning the story in videos. Like...what in the world is this video about? Should I as someone who'd known MTV for almost all its life be better at this skill...oh well...
