It's been a painting day for me. Here are the last ten tunes that kept me company.

1. Empty Room -- Marjorie Fair. "I don't wanna go, but if I die young, fill my empty room with the sun."
2. Silver Lining -- Amanda Ghost. I've loved this song since I first heard it on an ER episode years ago.
3. Neighborhood 1 - Tunnel -- Arcade Fire. Great tune from a great album.
4. Let Go -- BarlowGirl. "La la la. Don't bother me. I'm too busy having fun."
5. Christmas Blue -- David Elias. I found this singer through 3hive.
6. The Old King -- David Elias.
7. Here I Dreamt I Was an Architect -- The Decemberists. "And here i dreamt i was a soldier, and i marched the streets of Birkenau. And i recall in the spring the perfume that the air would bring to the indolent town."
8. Gotta Get Up from Here -- Ellie Lawson. iTunes offered this song as one of their free downloads and I really like the perky-depression thing it's got going.
9. Plasti-Queens -- Geoff Byrd. "You need surgery to feel pretty enough, so Daddy buys you a D cup for your 21st birthday. Now you can blend down in West L.A."
10. Same in Any Language - I-Nine.

I added Silver Lining to my iTunes shopping cart. I'll pick it up next time I go music shopping since you said you loved the song. :)

Amanda Ghost has a really haunting voice. You might consider getting "Cellophane" while you're at it.
