More Great Songs of 2007: 11-20

Jiro Osuga - The Person Who At A Concert IV (2005)

The weekly countdown continues with ten more great songs from my father's addition to my 100 Great Songs of 2007 series. Our intertwined music experiences are apparent as he features a band that has slept on my couch, a lyric positing psychology hidden in smoking behavior, and a song about the beauty of functioning as a tribe as I fail to join the family for Easter. I think the inclusion of "Be Safe" and "Nature Springs" means he'd understand that sometimes after long weeks inside and on paper, some time spent in a submarine searching for a far away dream is necessary too. Enjoy his great picks, as usual.

11) Band of Horses - Cigarettes, Wedding Bands (mp3)

12) The Clientele - Bookshop Cassanova (mp3)

13) The Cribs - Be Safe (mp3)

14) Fields - Song for the Fields (mp3)

15) Flight of the Conchords - The Most Beautiful Girl in the Room (mp3)

16) The Good, the Bad and the Queen - Nature Springs (mp3)

17) John Vanderslice - Central Booking (mp3)

18) Luka Bloom - Tribe (mp3)

19) Pinback - Good to Sea (mp3)

20) Voxtrot - Introduction (mp3)

Remember when Voxtrot wanted to go to House on the Rock? Cause of all the things in Wisconsin that was supposed to be THE thing to see....
