073: I'm Feeling Good...For Now.

Mis-labeled "74".
  1. Better Than Nothing Jennifer Trynin
  2. Here We Go Again Everclear
  3. 5-Piece Chicken Dinner, and
  4. Looking Down The Barrel Of A Gun- Beastie Boys
  5. Personal Jesus (7" Version) Depeche Mode
  6. Why Don't We Do It In The Road? An out-there cover by Lydia Lunch. This is the only Beatles cover I have ever heard which includes a sample of the original Beatles song! There's some car-crash sound effects too...

  8. You're All I've Got Tonight The Cars
  9. I Love Every Little Thing About You Stevie Wonder
  10. Somebody To Love Queen
  11. Down the Line Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers (This is a very odd, rare track from Tom Petty's box set. The production has a very slick soulful R&B flair.)
  12. Darling Lorraine Paul Simon
  13. Wishlist Pearl Jam
  14. Be Mine R.E.M.
  15. Winona Matthew Sweet
  16. 32 Flavors Ani DiFranco
  17. Silver Springs Fleetwood Mac (The original 1976 B-side, not the performance from the live reunion album.)
  18. Northern Sky Nick Drake
  19. Crossroads Tracy Chapman

Serendipity

serendipityJohn Cusack's most forced romantic comedy. I don't find Kate Beckinsale to be convincing as a romantic lead. She also needs to dial back the dieting- she is distractingly thin! This movie marks the spot where Cusack got bored with rom-coms.
