This Week's "Music To Read By" Soundtrack

(At least, the first 10 songs on my playlist are, with Miles' "Flamenco Sketches" getting a repeat because it's just that good.)

A little mellow background while you read, surf or play solitaire. Some newish stuff (Bon Iver, Yo La Tengo) and some not so new, -ish or otherwise  (Paul Simon, Cat Stevens).

As always, the soundtrack is optional. Cause my sad sap songs are certainly not for everyone.


  1. Too bad I cannot listen to any of the songs ("Due to licensing restrictions..."). Perhaps next time you can list them in the post so your blog readers can look for them?

  2. Sorry. T. I thought you couldn't listen but could see the list.

    For the blocked and brutally - fascistly -censored, then; Here are the first 5:

    1. Bon Iver's "Flume"
    2. Simon and Garfunkel's "Only Living Boy in New York"
    3. Dead Can Dance's "Carnival is Over"
    4. Duke Ellington and Miles Davis' "In A Sentimental Mood"
    5. Dave Matthews' "#41"
