Here are all of alassinsane's jams.
I fuckin love Metric. They draw on so many musical influences and lyrics are incredibly nonsensical and poignant at the same time. Also, I cannot stress how awesome female leads are. #imsogladthatimanislandnow

it's just wrong that "palindrome' is not itself a palindrome #jesusdontyouknowthatyoucouldadiedthatyoushouldhavedied

by Modest Mouse
My all-time favorite Modest Mouse song, from a long line of contenders, off of my favorite Modest Mouse album. I love the nonsense, the nihilism, the imagery, and the repetition - to name a few. Great song. Great band.

by The Kinks
I love The Kinks' lo-fi sound and brilliant lyrics. "Shangri-La" exposes upper middle class living for what it truly is: "Here is your reward for working so hard/Gone are the lavatories in the back yard"

by The Doors
#morrisonhotel is this great album right before L.A. Woman. I'm not saying it's better than L.A. Woman, - Morrison's last album - but it's arguably as good as. I love to show off some of the band's lesser-known songs, because as much as "The End" is brilliant and iconic, it's not news. "Maggie M'Gill" is indicative of how awesome the band is when it focuses on blues rock.

by Fiona Apple
considering making this my eternal jam. it's not that it's not deserving but is it epic enough? I may have to listen to some more live versions. here's a link to a great and strange music video directed by #paulthomasanderson : http://bit.ly/1ahk3zP

by Fleetwood Mac
I could go on and on about Fleetwood Mac. This is definitely a favorite of mine. Earlier versions of this song are good, but none compare to the emotion felt by this live version - though oddly Stevie Nicks seems unmoved by her own performance and singing in the video.

by The Clash
A punk rock cover of a great reggae song, proving The Clash can do more than just scream at their audience. There are plenty of great Clash originals, but this one highlights their talents in many ways. Police brutality has got to end, I refuse to refer to cops as honorable men.

by Dusty Springfield
Dusty in Memphis is on Rolling Stone's 500 Best Albums list for a reason. This song is crazy enchanting, like it belongs on the soundtrack to Bond movie. #goodshit

by T. Rex
An old friend introduced me to "The Slider" once, and I was hooked. Not to mention having that love cemented by Tarantino's 'Death Proof ' soundtrack with "Jeepster". This is probably my favorite T Rex tune

by Jenny Lewis
Jenny Lewis is a brilliant female artist of our times and her folk rock and blues influences shine in this title track off her sophomore album. Here is just a simply beautiful acoustic song that speaks volumes to those of us who have experienced the depths of despair and the sad realities of feeling isolated even when you physically are not.

by Jens Lekman
this swedish artist harmonizes in english so smoothly, yet that's not the half of why he's high on my favorites list. his unconventional yet poignant lyrics are even sing-along-able, but really I should let the song do the talking
Jammed: 2nd Jun 2013
by Liz Phair
don't be fooled, this mixtape version is way better than that which appears on Phair's later 'Exile in Guyville.' that's not to say that 'Exile in Guyville' is by any means a lesser quality. Phair has said that it is a reaction to the Rolling Stone's 'Exile on Mainstreet." either way, what happened to this side of Phair and why did she go mainstream? either way, she is a bold, female artist to look up to.

by The High Numbers (The Who)
When I hear this song I picture myself in a cliche 60's T-bird convertible, cat-eye sunglasses and cigarette in tow, and this is blasting on the radio. Catchy as hell - will use at the end of a movie soundtrack someday.
