They're one of my favorite contemporary groups, along with Coldplay, Radiohead, Muse, and the Black Keys. I was going to nominate Beck, but I noticed he's got songs in the TT already, though not a #1. Maybe I'll save him for when we do that special. :)

1. Green and Dumb ~ Roger Clyne and the Peacemakers Really quite a beautiful song, if you'd just give it a listen. (lyrics below)

2. Steady as She Goes ~ Raconteurs Not much of a White Stripes fan, but I like this foray outside of it.

Green and Dumb

Daisies stand up on their tip-toes

Clouds tumble over themselves in the sky

And all the pretty horses come runnin' to her

And even the dust devils pray

that they'll catch her eye

I haunt her house from the outside

I watch her bake cornbread and talk on the phone

And the wireless on the inside plays a sad sweet song

A mute moonlit statue am I, she waltzes alone

But baby, baby, I could call you baby

If I weren't so empty in the head and tied up in the tongue

And baby, baby, I could call you baby

If I weren't so green and dumb

The wind ain't stopped blowin' since morning

It's got me froze up on the inside

And I could get warm in the bunk house

And thaw out on coffee and bread

But baby, baby, I could call you baby

If I weren't so empty in the head and tied up in the tongue

But baby, baby, I could call you baby

If I weren't so green and dumb

I need your government warning

like I need a hole in my head

Well, I won't shoot your coyotes

And I won't burn your weeds

Your paycheck won't fill up this hollow

It won't dull all the achin'

But baby, baby, I could call you baby

If I weren't so empty in the head and tied up in the tongue

But baby, baby, I could call you baby

If I weren't so green & dumb

If I weren't so green & dumb

If I weren't so green & dumb

If I weren't so green & dumb
