Hey music-loving busties! I didn't know where else to post this...

I'm making a (surprise) mix CD for a few close friends of mine who are going on a road trip from here to Chicago and then along route 66 to L.A. I'm just wondering if any of you have any suggestions. I'm including songs that mention cities/states they will be passing through as well as bands from those places, as well as songs that have an American feel and just plain old good driving songs.

So far there are some obvious ones- "Los Angeles" by X, "King of the Road" by Roger Miller, "California Stars" by Wilco, "Out on the Weekend" by Neil Young, as well as songs by the Pixies, the Silver Jews, Bob Dylan, the Replacements, the Microphones, etc... I think it needs more women right now.

Any suggestions? Their tastes (and mine) favor folk, country, rock, and indie...

I've recently become obsessed with Bloc Party (of course, I only know a few songs, but my friend is burning me some CDs).

I'm all overexcited because Constantine from American Idol is finally putting out an album...it's not due until August 7th, but I've been listening to live recordings and some samples on the Barnes and Noble website. I think I remember that he has a few other Bustie fans...this site has a bunch of info and pretty things and whatnot: http://i-squad.com/link/link/NTIyMzYzfDMxMQ==

Babs- I am a huge Tori fan, but I can only like/can get through the first 5 songs of ADP. I love them, but I can't dig the rest. I think it might be a case of "it's not you, it's me", 'cause I'm just not traversing Tori music land right now. I'm like 180 degrees from it. I'm hoping I'll come around to it eventually, but right now it's been shelved. I'm saddened. sad.gif

awww, I love Damien Rice. especially live~

YUI's (JPop-i listen to a lot of it) new album Can't Buy My Love is really good--better than her last one, I think. I'm always listening to and loving new JPop stuff; my favorite is Utada Hikaru.

Have been obsessed with Arcade Fire's "neon bible" since it came out months ago. I dare say it is better than the first album.

My boy got me Lily Allen's cd which I have yet to fully listen to. She is adorable.

Kings of Leon -- gotta love my dirty southern boys-- put out a super 3rd album-- my favorite to date. They have really matured musically and lyrically. And damn have they grown into hot young men -- I feel like such a pedophile since the bassist was only 15 when they recorded their first album. Too bad they sound so dumb in interviews.

Anna, that's a fun random sampling!!

I've been obsessing over Ingrid Michaelson and Feist lately. Wilco. Elliot Smith.

And because it makes me think of my mom, Barry Manilow. Don't ask.

I've been digging the Pipettes and the Noisettes. I like making mix CDs of odd choices. Like my new mix was a bunch of Aerosmith songs, King Missile's "Detachable Penis," Deadeye Dick's "New Age Girl" (aka "Mary Moon"), David Hasselhoff singing the Baywatch theme, Jamelia's song sampling "Personal Jesus" and reminding me of Rihanna's "SOS," and 60's pop like "The Boy From New York City" and "Cherish." I just like picking random stuff.

Apologies - I had no intention of spamming - I thought it might be appropriate to ask for support for a queer band here, but I'm really sorry if I misunderstood the way the forum works.

Anyway - some great queer or feminist or girl bands I've been listening to recently? Looker (Brooklyn-based, SO great, quenchable harmonies), The Pussy Pirates (Michigan, awesome rhythm play) and the Degenerettes (campy queer garage rock from Baltimore). Also, admittedly, the new Rufus Wainwright, on repeat. It's like eating the most decadent jar of garlic-stuffed olives over and over and over....

Actually, spam isn't appropriate anywhere (but if you do want to join us, then welcome).

Right now the Arcade Fire, the Clash and Ted Leo are in constant rotation in my CD player. I feel like I'm a little late for getting into Arcade Fire, but I finally got around to buying their latest last month, then I went out and bought Funeral last week. The other two are old favorites that seem to fit my current mood.

Hey -

I'm actually new here, and couldn't figure out whether I had permission to start a new thread - this isn't exactly appropriate for this one, but it IS music-related (and self-promotional...!) and maybe someone can tell me where it would fit better, if not here...sorry if not.

Anyway - I'm in a band called The Shondes (www.shondes.com) and we're in a contest called "Last Band Standing," in which bands compete for a slot at Lollapalooza! We think it would be incredible for a feminist, queer, radical, band to join the mainstream alterna-stages and are campaigning for votes from the people we love!

So - the rules are, well, funny. You can vote *every day* from *every email address you have*. So don't vote once and then desist - vote oft! All you have to do is click on the link below, and then you'll have to check your email to verify the vote. (And note - even if you see our vote count and think we don't stand a chance - we do! We are in 134th place now, and only need to get to 100th - and we still have a week.)

http://lollapalooza.mp3.com/feature/2007lo...and=THE-SHONDES

Any questions? Temim@shondes.com. And please forward to anyone you know with desk job and a computer! Or a vested interest in seeing our smiling faces on a large and prestigious Chicago stage...!

I'm on a huge Rufus Wainwright kick now--has anyone else seen his interviews? He is so hilarious and honest. I love him.

This isn't really a band per say, but I have been listening to the "Marie Antoinette" soundtrack and "The life aquatic" soundtrack as well. Both are so so amazing. I feel like seeing the movie only made them better too.

I'm currently in love with Bethany Joy Lenz. Apparently she's on One Tree Hill (which I don't watch), but I think her music is just beautiful. I'm a sucker for a girl with a guitar or a piano.
