Be My Genius, Spend My Money (Updated & Complete)


I have $10.24 of iTunes credit to spend and I'm not sure what do to with it.

Give me some suggestions. I'm only interested in songs. It should get me about 10 tunes, if I don't buy anything new and popular (since iTunes jacked that price up to 1.29 for that kind of stuff). So, give me your playlist of 10 songs I should have that you think I don't.

The available funds is down 99 cents, so I'm looking for 9 songs now, I suppose. I just downloaded this song. The band title is a bit much for me, but I like the song.
The Pains of Being Pure at Heart - Young Adult Friction

Well, went out and got another song. I need seven now. I just invested in this one:
Sons & Daughters - The Nest

The iTunes card has been spend. All 25 bucks of it. And since you're dying to know and I want to share, here's how I blew it:
Fatboy Slim - Wonderful Night
Edward Sharpe & the Magnetic Zeroes - Home
Handsome Furs - All We Want, Is Everything
Neko Case & Her Boyfriends - Thanks a Lot
Neko Case & Her Boyfriends - Karoline
David Byrne - Don't Fence Me In
Bruce Springsteen - The Wrestler
Grand Ole Party - Belle Isle
Okkervil River - Our Life Is Not A Movie or Maybe
Okkervil River - A Hand to Take Hold of the Scene
The Hold Steady - Stuck Between Stations

M. Ward - never Had Nobody Like You (feat. Zooey Deschanel)
Of Montreal - Gronlandic Edit

1. Cloud Cult...this is just an instrumental? The iTunes sample is just violins.
2. DNFS...same question, the sample is only banjos and whatnot.
3. Ivy...I don't like this.
4. Bouncing Souls...not bad, a lot of the other Bouncing Souls I have.
5. Donovan...maybe.
6. Gomez...I don't care for this one either.
7. Cock Sparrer...I kind of like this one.
8. NOFX...Coaster is an album, so which song or all of them?
9. Rolling Stones...not on iTunes.
10. My Morning Jacket...I have this one already. This reminds me of this other problem I have with My Morning Jacket. I have their CD Z, which is great, but I can't upload it to my iTunes because there's this program on the disc that sort of blocks that, and that program creates a huge security hole in your system (at least that's what MTV reported lo these many years ago) so I'm leery of doing it.

Thanks for the suggestions, Philly-baby!

Both the Cloud Cult and DNFS's songs do have vocals about 2-3 minutes into the songs, and the lyrics are flippin creppy as hell (hence, the suggestion). If you like, I can burn you a copy and send the albums to you (although, if you have an iPod, who needs CD's) NOFX's One Million Coasters is a song from the album Coaster, although if you want a little mid-west flair, you could download "Seeing Double at the Triple Rock" by NOFX. Sorry about Ivy and Gomez. If you liked Cock Sparrer, check out a Italian-thrash band called Los Fastidios that does a real nice ska version of that song. I didn't know you were a Souls fan already--good man.
