Started working on a new song last night - well, it's an old song, but it only really existed on paper, I hadn't ever attempted to work it out. The sampler is still working; I'm moving cautiously in a looping direction. It's better to have learned the songs without 'em, though, in general.

Re-stacked the CD wallets, which was necessary. Most of these CDs contain at least one or two songs that have been floating around in my head for months; I'm considering learning a few of them for the gig; early candidates include "Run of the Mill" or "All Things Must Pass" (George Harrison), "Morning Bell" (combining elements of both the "Kid A" and "Amnesiac" versions), "23 Minutes in Brussels" (Luna), and possibly "Showboat Angel" (TSAC).

PJ Harvey, "Is This Desire?"
George Harrison, "All Things Must Pass" (Disc 1)
Peter Gabriel, "Us"
Nick Drake, "Pink Moon"
Blur, "13"
The Beatles, "Revolver"
The Beatles, "Abbey Road"
Hum, "Downward is Heavenward"
Luna, "Penthouse"
Death Cab for Cutie, "We Have the Facts..."
Sam Prekop, s/t
The Sea and Cake, "Oui"

Yo La Tengo, "I Can Hear the Heart..."
Traffic, "Mr. Fantasy"
Tortoise, "Standards"
Stereolab, "Cobra..." [the brown one]
Radiohead, "Amnesiac"
The Sea and Cake, s/t
Built to Spill, "Perfect From Now On"
The Police, "Zenyatta Mondatta"
The Police, "Regatta de Blanc"
Pete Yorn, "Musicforthemorningafter"
Jethro Tull, "Living in the Past"
The Church, "Gold Afternoon Fix"
