Here are all of Ewan_M's jams.

I guess this is it. I'm in a pub so can't quite remember how it goes but leaving with Roy Montgomery, my favourite purveyor of long-form drone jangle. #themelancholydeathofTIMJ

Sticking with Canadian music, here's a nostalgic one from my childhood for the #melancholydeathofTIMJ filmed at the Electric Ballroom in Camden! Albeit when I was three years old.

My next melancholy song which is all about TIMJ going away. I wanted to jam something from The Tragic Treasury but those all seem to be BLOCKED on YT.

by The Iditarod and Sharron Kraus
Now that TIMJ is going, I shall have to jam my favourite melancholy songs, eh? I love Sharron Kraus's voice but her collaboration with The Iditarod is just perfect, a short EP well worth your time.

So this popped up on shuffle yesterday when I was walking in the sun, and I still like it. It's been a few years. TWELVE! I checked. Surely despite the passage of time, you still remember it? Actually I probably work with people for whom this is like a song that defines their childhood, eh?

This was suggested by Katy for my #NYC jams (only a month to go! exciting! submit any recommendations for places to go, eat, drink). The song is in German though, so good luck with that.

by James Brown
Continuing the #NYC jams ahead of my visit next month. I expect it to look just like this film clip. I recognise this isn't a great presentation of the song (it restarts about three times), but I couldn't find any other videos... Sorry!

by Bonnie 'Prince' Billy
Saw BPB play live the other night, he finished with a (rocking) version of this. The original is pretty bleak, but this version is rather jolly. I had no idea it had an 'official' video, but it looks like it was filmed in Scotland of all places. (I originally thought it was my hometown Edinburgh from a brief look, but now that I watch it, it's clearly not. I think it might be Glasgow actually.) So tick VG for that.

by Taylor Swift
I met up with some people the other night and we talked in depth about "1989", and basically when the album is good I really like it, and this track, late in the album, is one of my current favourites. I like the atmosphere and the imagery, which bring to my mind some kind of dystopian young-adult novel (albeit one about hiding from papparazzi).

As we all (should) do,I've been going on a bit of a tMG kick of late. The album this is from is the one I first loved, and this one of its standout tracks. The sound of those opening guitar chords just seemed to lift off the vinyl and pound into my brain. I love the level of utter despair this song seems to conjure. I wish I could feel so strongly but glad too that I don't, at least not often. PS selecting a jam on phone so v difficult to tell if the video link works...
Jammed: 5th Oct 2014
by Professor Green ft Emeli Sandé
Marking my countdown for the 10 years I've lived in London, this was UK #1 on my 8th anniversary in 2011. I'm hearing it for the first time, which shows how much attention I've been paying.

by Johann Sebastian Bach
I went to see the movie City of Bones last night and it turns out JS Bach was a demon hunter. Errrr, okay.

Wait! There's more…
