7 a.m. Joe Grice

These are all songs that I beleive have amazing female vocalists.
  • "My Love," by The Bird and The Bee
  • "The Fear," by Lily Allen
  • "Boom," by Anjulie

9 a.m. Erik Dudziak

I'm not sure if Back Door Slam has ever played at Bonnaroo, but they should. I saw them at Artscape and have been a fan ever since. Both Ben Harper and Band of Horses are rocking out at Bonnaroo this year, and although I have never seen either live I really want to.
  • "Come Home," by Back Door Slam
  • "Shimmer and Shine," by Ben Harper & The Relentless 7
  • "Marry Song," by Band of Horses

11 a.m. Trish Smith
  • "Ooh, La, La," by The Faces
    This is my favorite song ever because it's not only from my favorite movie (Rushmore), but because it also reveals life lessons.
  • "El Scorcho," by Weezer
    This was the first Weezer song I ever listened to, and since I'm half Korean (not half Japanese), I feel a connection to it.
  • "Coffee & TV," by Blur
    This is a great song with an even better music video. Who doesn't like coffee or tv?!
  • "In Between Days," by The Cure
    My favorite Cure song. It's beautiful.
  • "Bittersweet Symphony," by The Verve
    "You're a slave to money then you die." What sums up life better than this?


1 p.m. David Paremske

All of these songs are groovy.
  • "Helicopters," by Disco Biscuits
  • "Maze," by Phish
  • "Toe Jam," by BPA
  • "Sabotage," by Beastie Boys

5 p.m. Dan Anderson

I think song #1 is great and it just shows how awesome WTMD is - where else would you hear a song like this? Thanks for introducing it to me! I think his voice sounds a little like Dracula's voice and that makes me think of the Dracula song in Forgetting Sarah Marshall (song #2). It's a short funny song, but it's actually pretty good. Then that song makes me think of the line "Send me all your vampires" in song #3. And of course that then makes me think of Vampire Weekend. Did you follow all of that?
  • "Epilepsy is Dancing," by Antony and the Johnsons

  • "Dracula's Lament," by Jason Segal

  • "I Want You," by Third Eye Blind

  • "Cape Cod Kwassa Kwassa," by Vampire Weekend


6 p.m. Maria Shaivitz

I picked these because they are songs that I never get tired of hearing. Thanks WTMD for all the great music you play!
  • "Electric Feel," by MGMT
  • "Stop the Bus," by Grace Potter and the Nocturnals
  • "Valerie Plame," by The Decemberists
  • "Theologians," by Wilco
  • "Heretics," by Andrew Bird
