Downtown by goodnewsfortheinsane

Downtown is a slow drudge rock version of the 1964 song, written by Tony Hatch, performed by Petula Clark, and covered many, many times. It’s not cheerful, and it’s melancholic and heavy, but not too heavy.

It’s the End of the World as We Know It (And I Feel Fine) by Metafilter Orchestra

It’s the End of the World as We Know It (And I Feel Fine) is a cover of the classic R.E.M. song, as a collaboration involving contributions from over a dozen mefites, carefully edited by goodnewsfortheinsane.

Foundations by goodnewsfortheinsane

Foundations is a genderbending Kate Nash cover. It’s sort of a neurotic, Livejournal-ish song, with a distinctive voice (and accent).

I Am John by goodnewsfortheinsane

I Am John is a pretty acoustic cover from goodnewsfortheinsane, originally from Loney Dear. It’s the first song here tagged with melodica or glockenspiel.

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).

Requiem for blink by goodnewsfortheinsane

Get Out of My Songs by goodnewsfortheinsane

Get Out of My Songs is a ragged & angry song, and it’s excellent.
