The Gaslight Anthem - Angry Johnny And The Radio

Angry Johnny And The Radio - The Gaslight Anthem

A book, song, or show recommendation for each letter of the alphabet?

1) I am sorry this is going to (obviously) be long
2) I also put in a couple films
3) There are a LOT of parentheses in my list, just a head’s up.

American Slang (Gaslight Anthem)- The question stipulated song only but I think you’re better off listening to the entire album in this situation.

Bleeder (Alkaline Trio)

Cold War Kids

Dead Like Me (Bryan Fuller. Cancelled annoyingly early on. But still amazing)

Einstein’s Dreams (Alan Lightman)

Flakes (film)

Gaslight Anthem. I know they were technically already on here but I love them and really wish more people listened to them.

Hedwig and the Angry Inch (film)

Istanbul (not Constantinople) (They Might Be Giants) (Before you yell at me I know it wasn’t originally their song and you can find out about the original artist/composer here)

Jack’s Mannequin (see also Something Corporate)

Kyle XY (I am so sorry if you actually watch this because while I truly loved it, it got cancelled on the biggest cliffhanger of all time)

Lost. Was I really ever going to put anything else here? Let’s be real. But I also want to say that Lamb (a novel) by Christopher Moore is my favourite of all time.

Memoirs of a Geisha. Though I would say you should read it with the fact that it isn’t historically accurate at all in mind. For an actual account of what it means to be a Geisha/Geiko I recommend “Geisha, A Life” by Mineko Iwasaki.

National, the (band). I can’t think of a single song I don’t love.

Oldboy (I think they’re remaking it but I implore you to watch the original, and maybe forget that there is a remake)

Particular Sadness of Lemon Cake, the (Aimee Bender) or Practical Magic (Alice Hoffman) (Even if you hated the movie, the novel is really well written/not really the same as the film at all)

Queen of Sorrow (Black Label Society) (Also Spoke in the Wheel) 

Rural Alberta Advantage

Stars. (Underrated Canadian artists)

Trailer Trash (Modest Mouse)

Undergrads (TV Show)

Veronica Mars (Ditto)

Wonderfalls (Triple ditto) (This is from the list of perfect Bryan Fuller shows that got cancelled because life is unfair and hard)

X,Y,U (Smashing Pumpkins)

Year of Living Biblically, the (A.J Jacobs)

Zombies, the

That was always going to be long given the question, but if you made it to the end, congrats! Or…thanks! And here’s a baby anteater

I am exhausted and have only just changed out of beer soaked clothing, but I can say without a doubt that tonight was glorious. There were a few snags, but what concert experience doesn’t have a colourful story or three?
As far as birthday presents go, tonight was perfect.
Now I think I will change into one of my two, fantastic, new Gaslight tees, and pass out in bed.
