Lazarus: Original Cast Recording — Various Artists. If only for the three songs on the second disc that didn't make it onto .
Wild Stab — The I Don't Cares
The Ghosts Of Highway 20 — Lucinda Williams
Just A Little More Faith And Grace — Lucinda Williams
The Ship — Brian Eno (previously mentioned, but not listed )
The Rarity Of Experience — Chris Forsyth & The Solar Motel Band
Glitterbust — Glitterbust
Heron Oblivion — Heron Oblivion
"Not A Word"/"I Won't Let You" — Low/S. Carey
Patch The Sky — Bob Mould
Forever Sounds — Wussy
Tense Nature — Brian Case
Feelin Kinda Free — The Drones

No Waves — Body/Head
Bleed For This: Original Motion Picture Soundtrack — Julia Holter
Crab Day — Cate Le Bon
PRN — Gate
Strung Out In Heaven — Amanda Palmer & Jherek Bischoff. Anna Calvi's performance on "Blackstar" is what truly elevates this one from the sea of tributes.

Yeah, listing always feels like a monumentally pointless exercise when you take a step back and look at it. I feel that. Feeling it right now, in fact. I think the entire hobby/habit may simply be a symptom of obsessive compulsion... specifically the compulsion to catalogue and order life's events. Provides the briefest sense of control over the chaos of the world.

I keep thinking of things I forgot. You mention Nels Cline, Feelin Kinda Free by the Drones, and a few others that slipped my mind altogether.

Fuck. Blah.
