rainy day songs

sometimes you want to dance in the rain (think acl 2009).  sometimes you want to hole up and listen to mellow nostalgic ballads.  today i might just hole up.

last year at the film festival i saw an incredibly moving documentary about a little sweetie with autism.  i highly recommend it: http://www.horseboymovie.com/.  this song was featured in the film.  i loved it from the moment i heard it on a mix my brother made for me years before, and now that i associate it with the emotion of the movie, it takes my breath away.  hoping to see it played like this someday...

"to build a home" by cinematic orchestra


this one gets me deep, too.  heard this on npr's song of the day and immediately downloaded it.  it is the quintessential break-up-mix song.  careful, it'll make your eyes wet.

"blue skies" by noah and the whale
