Living Hell - The Tiger Lillies

Formed in 1989, the three-piece band The Tiger Lillies is a darkly wonderful "death oompah" cabaret band based in London.

Bedlam Sticks - Diablo Swing Orchestra

Here's another from one of my favorite bands ever! Sweden's Diablo Swing Orchestra combines elements of death metal, swing jazz, opera, and uber-yumminess laden creativity. Their newest album, "Sing-Along Songs for the Damned and Delirious" is one of my all-time favorites and one of those rare albums on which every song is a winner. And this song, in particular, rocks my socks.

Bublitschki - Gogol Bordello

I woke up early this morning with this song in my head. My husband and I bought this DVD a few months ago (BEAUTIFUL movie - everybody should see it - really) and have absolutely fallen in love, not only with the movie, but with the soundtrack as well (as is evidenced by its permanent rotation position on my ipod).

Hello Bluebird - Janet Klein and Her Parlor Boys

I'm still stuck on the sofa recuperating from last month's surgery, but that's not stopping the feeling of Spring in the air from enveloping me today. You just can't escape that kind of giddy.

Very Good Advice - Robert Smith

In full disclosure, I am a HUGE fan of Johnny Depp, Tim Burton, The Cure and Alice in Wonderland (and Alice Through the Looking Glass), so it should come as no surprise to anyone how absolutely giddy I am about this movie (opening in just a few days on March 5). In fact, adding in Helena Bonham Carter as The Red Queen (I used to pretend to be the Red Queen when I was little girl, running around commanding, "Off with their heads" to anybody who crossed my path) makes me even more than giddy. One might use the word, "delirious." Yay!

You can listen to the clips from the soundtrack HERE.
