The Music Edition: Have I Got Some Songza For You

I, obviously without thinking it through properly, asked my posse on Twitter to send me the titles and artists of songs they have been listening to recently. I thought Oh, like maybe six people will send me songs. I was an idiot. Oh, like maybe FORTY-TWO people sent me songs. So, I have decided to haphazardly throw out 71% of the songs submitted and share twelve that the posse has been listening to that pass the Schmutzie test, the Schmutzie test being that I like the song AND I could find a decent version of it on Songza.

I tacked on two more songs at the end, of course, because the Palinode and I get to have our say.

To listen to any of the songs, click on the song title links. If the song doesn't play smoothly on the Songza page, press your spacebar to pause it and wait for it to load completely before pressing the spacebar again to play.
