I love that you have Bjork.
Hyper-Ballad is my favorite.
Daft Punk ALWAYS gets me going. If you have a way of getting it, get a hold of the Alive 2007 CD.

I like to study/ chillout to the postal service cd, and just chill with friends and listen to Pete Bjorn, and John.

The music that gets me going is the soundtrack to the german movie, Run Lola Run. Do what you can to watch the movie/listen to the soundtrack!

Sister Sisters... haha... I'll admit I like them.
Killers and Jimmy Eat World are always good.

The few times I do listen to my iPod at the gym it is Jimmy Eat World, The Shins, and The Killers.

I use my iPod so rarely though- mainly when around the house.

Fun post getting to see what Dan in Kabul is listening to.

Oh you already know we're music soulmates big D, that's a foregone conclusion. Check out Camera Obscura's "Hey Lloyd" video, it's my new fave. So so so so nice.

I don't have any of those, no soul-mate here!

I do enjoy reading your blog though.

Dan,

Thought you might want to add a song to your favorite list, see second video below. However, you should watch the first video so you understand the context of the second. The last video is just an extra for fun, enjoy.

Dave Chapelle - Juice
