#963 Liz Phair - "Whitechocolatespaceegg"

More 90s alternative music for you people. Perhaps Whitechocolatespacegg isnt Phair's most heralded album, but its my favourite and the only 2 Liz Phair songs on the chart are from this album. Sorry Guyville!

no video on this one,

#964 Pearl Jam - "State Of Love & Trust"

This will be the first of seven Pearl Jam songs and the first of quite a few songs from probably the most delicious soundtrack of all time. Soundtracks these days are always chock full of new artists and big hit makers, but this was one of the original. I can't say i loved the so much, but the soundtrack is definitely the soundtrack to more than just a movie, but a generation!

#965 Owl City - "Fireflies"

So last July i was driving home from school and heard this song...thought "hey cool, new postal service!!!!" but no...owl city....its cool. A rip off maybe but i liked it and it became kinda special. That is, til it turned into that mega pop hit and now the hipster in me hates it. Don't worr...y people, Owl City wont be around for long!!

#966 A Fine Frenzy - "Almost Lover"

This song was going to be a bit higher on the chart, but then i heard it in a grocery store. I know i know, i am gonna get complaints about this one, but its sorta special to me...and if you really want to complain, wait til 963!!!

#967 Amy Winehouse - "Tears Dry On Their Own"

Oh Amy Winehouse, how much talent you had, and how you have seemed to have wasted it. I do like this song, especially when she admits she "fucked myself in the head with stupid men"....haven't we all?
