Wash My Hands by Kormac
Gorgeous piece of instrumental music, full of melancholy, and perfect for a long drive. The song swells and makes your throat hurt with sorrow, and it's kind of amazing. I don't know very much about classical music, but this song was part of a BBC 4 programme on music with a "powerful emotional impact." It does too.
The Sun Won't Set by Anoushka Shankar and Norah Jones
The sisters get together on this song, another lot of melancholy for the changing seasons. (I'm not sad, guys! It's just the kind of mellow music I've been into lately.) I particularly like this version remixed by Robot Koch, who I saw at the Magnetic Fields Festival last year. He was quite cool, and this song is too.
Here's a chirpy song for you! Obviously, under you've been living under a rock, you've already heard this, but for me, this song sums up Bangkok last year, walking down a strip on Khao San Road, and hearing this song at various intervals from all the little roadside bars. We have a mondegreen of it as well, singing, "Ricochet, Chevrolet!" instead of "Ricochet, you take your aim."
