You can stream the music obsessions each week here on Spotify or here on Google Music

1. Under the Pressure :: The War On Drugs

“Well, the comedown here was easy,
like the arrival of a new day,
but a dream like this gets wasted without you.”

2. Under Pressure :: Queen & David Bowie

“It’s the terror of knowing,
what this world is about,
watching some good friends,
screaming –
‘let me out’.”

3. Carnival :: Natalie Merchant

“Have I been blind?
Have I been lost,
inside myself,
and my own mind?
by what my eyes have seen?”


4. You Said Something :: PJ Harvey

“How did we get here?
To this point of living?
I held my breath –
and you said something.”


5. Famous Blue Raincoat :: Leonard Cohen

“Well, I see you there,
with the rose in your teeth –
one more thin gypsy thief.
Well, I see Jane’s awake –
she sends her regards.”
