Tower Song by inoculatedcities

Tower Song is a cover of a Townes Van Zandt song, pretty and sad.

Requiem for the Living by goodnewsfortheinsane

Requiem for the Living is an angsty rock song. The end leads into Get Out of My Songs (previously).

Ten Thousand Waves by ldandersen

Ten Thousand Waves is an atmospheric electronica song.

A Song for Dolphins by OverlappingElvis

A Song for Dolphins is an odd, eclectic song.

Insert your own “so long and thanks for all the fish” joke here.

Requiem for blink by goodnewsfortheinsane

Requiem for <blink> is a tongue-in-cheek ode to the <blink> tag. (This was originally posted in the first version of Metafilter Music.)

Elfrita the Landlord by ageispolis

Elfrita the Landlord is an awesomely bouncy house song.

Hide and Seek by The White Hat

Hide and Seek is a pretty acoustic guitar cover of an Imogen Heap song. The White Hat and I were both introduced to the song by the Dear Sister meme in the previous month, spawned by a The Lonely Island / Saturday Night Live short.

Dreaming of the Sitar by lancer1966

Dreaming of the Sitar uses a flute, piano, & sitar to make a simple, pretty composition.

Tsunami by jlowen

Tsunami is a disorderly, drunken, & catchy song including a banjo, a cheesy synth, an accordion, and a kazoo.

Synthoholics Anonymous by ozomatli

Synthoholics Anonymous is a sometimes cheesy, sometimes pretty chiptune romp.

Sanitarium Sound System v2.0 by deusdiabolus

Sanitarium Sound System v2.0 has an awesome rolling bassline.

Nobody Knows You When You’re Down and Out by cortex

Nobody Knows You When You’re Down and Out is a Great Depression-era folk song by Woody Guthrie.

old french song by nicolin

old french song is a choir singing a traditional song in the Occitan language, recorded by nicolin in a small church in the south of France. It reminds me of the eerie, hair-raising music from Ghost in the Shell.

I just noticed: Last Friday marked the hundredth song posted here!

All The Things You Are by adrian_h

All The Things You Are is an solo acoustic guitar take on a jazz classic. It’s a lovely song, which you might recognize from Charlie Parker and from Ella Fitzgerald.

C & D’d by 31d1

C & D’d is a mellow, upbeat instrumental song. That twangy sound is a (fake) berimbau, a percussive string instrument.

The Biggie Blues by ageispolis

The Biggie Blues is fun hip-hop, remixing Notorious B.I.G. with glitchy samples.

Save the Fattest Girl for Me by markulus

Save the Fattest Girl for Me is a catchy & funny pop/rock ode to women who aren’t skinny.

Triomphe de L’Obelisque by Mach3avelli

Triomphe de L’Obélisque is shimmery, with keening electric guitars and heavy dialogue samples.

vamp by nicolin

Vamp is a quiet and soothing instrumental piece.

Its creator thought it sounded overly like a softcore porn soundtrack, but I think it could use a little bit more, maybe a pulsing saxophone, a squealing guitar solo, or a honking bicycle horn. What do you think?

rabo de nube by nicolin

rabo de nube is a lovely, very mellow cover of a song by Silvio Rodríguez.

Trinity by sluglicker

Trinity has evocative guitarwork, a metronomic flute, & heartbeat-like drums.

Locutus by spock

Locutus is spacy, rockish techno. I like how the username & the song title go together.
