Tell me what you like in that little box there and I’ll post it up.

Okay, I promised I’d do this, so here it is. I hope some of you do it too so I can start posting more than my hippie dippie shits up in here.
1. A Little Lost (Arthur Russell)
Hon. mention: his Keeping Up. I’ll post that one up since I’ve already posted A Little Lost. A few times. I’ve said it before, but Russell is one of my favorites ever, now. I’m always trying to get new people to listen to him, too. Most people are like, No thanks, not my style, but some people just freak out over him like me. One of my friends got all of his records for his birthday like two months after I introduced them. That’s how swiftly his magic works.)
2. Hey, Young World (Slick Rick)
Another song I was introduced to through UYD. I clearly remember running and writing down the singer and title.
3. Not Fade Away (Buddy Holly)
As a rock historian, I flipped when I heard this classic. I hope a lot of people who’d never heard it were into it.
4. Lowdown (Boz Scaggs)
This was a weird one. I’d heard the song a bunch and I thought I knew the Scaggs. But I was bewitched; it was like a revelation. WHO THE FUCK WHAT THE FUCK—Let’s just say there were a few weeks when I was getting some looks at bars for GUSHING over Boz.
5. Life is a Miracle (Pato Banton)
This one was the hardest. I mean, I was saving it for one of the songs I already loved that they’ve played. Imagine, Idiot Wind, Talkin’ World War III Blues, the standards. But instead, I decided to go with a dope song I’d already liked but that I came to like even better after UYD. And you might not know so well as those others.
Ok, now it’s your turn. Your faves?
P.S. Thanks Jonathan; you’re the best! I can’t imagine how hard it’d be to think of two songs a week for 336 weeks, but however you do it, keep up the good work!

Jonathan introduced me to Arthur Russell. At the end of the day, that alone would be enough for me to have made all my hours spent with the podcast worth it. I think this song is what made me love Jah, good and proper. (Seth, I knew I loved you before I met you.)

Phantom Pt. 2// Justice
Okay, so there was this one episode where Seth and Jah were talking about Neil Young, I think, and his song about the Iraq War (which was admittedly shit, Neil forgive me *salutes Canadian flag*) and how wack it was. So Seth asks Jah to name some musical artists who haven’t gotten embarrassing as they age. (Again, Neil, if you’re up there [Canada] please forgive me for what I say. I am only the messenger. *Kneels, makes the sign of the rock.*) He said, Bob Dylan, Dolly Parton, and Tom Waits.
Juuuuust kidding!! He said Justice. And I said, “qu’est-ce que c’est?” Well, you can hear them above if you want to. If that’s your bag, I mean. Here’s what they look like:
J/K, that’s some fake-ass ho. This is them:
SO HIP IT HURTS.
Give them a shot. I did. I didn’t like it. Maybe you will.
[Jah still has plenty of cache with me, musically—if only for introducing me to my boyfriend, Arthur Russell. (See above repost.) I’ll do my top five intros/outros later today. You should work on a list, too, and send it to me here, at uyd4life.gmail.com, or on twitter @uyd4l. All participants will be dropped into a raffle for a UYD4L prezzie!! So, make me your lists and I’ll start posting your favorite songs from them. We cool? OK. Love, Sethro.]
—-Episode 87 Intro, October 19, 2007—-
Show off your knowledge and help a Lifer out. What’s that song, dudes and dudenettes? Submit the song or video for bonus points!

I’ve been poking around and can’t find the intro song for EP 308. The wiki’s intro/outro music page is highly lacking, and I can’t seem to track this fucker down. Any guidance?
Hello dear reader,
And thank you for your correspondence. I will suss out the song later if neither of these methods work:
1. Can any of you guys help a broham out? Qu’est-ce que c’est?
2. Have you tried Shazam? (Cause that’s the crux of my plan to help you. Ha! I’m just soooo tech. Soooo savvy.)
Meanwhile, you’ve come to the right place. We’re always happy to be of help(ish).
Keep the messages coming, Lifers. Otherwise, we might be forced to invent some ourselves. Just kidding. Shit, now everyone’s going to think we do that when we get an anon. Fuck. I could just delete this, but I already typed it. Impossible! My every word shines and glitters like the precious jewels that drip from the mouth holes of the gods.
Amirite? No? Not even about the gods’ gobs* slobbering out fine gems? Isn’t that in the Iliad or some shit? Nope? Damn.
*Pronounced with a hard g, as in Gobias Industries; not like George Oscar Bluth, or Gob.

“This Must Be The Place [Naive Melody]”—Talking Heads
We drift in and out
Sing into my mouth
Out of all those kinds of people
You got a face with a view
I’m just an animal looking for a home
Share the same space for a minute or two
And you love me till my heart stops
Love me till i’m dead
Eyes that light up, eyes look through you
Cover up the blank spots
Hit me on the head
