I couldn’t go through your whole thing, so let me ask if you have any Dave Brubeck? “Take Five” is an obvious choice but I also like “Unsquare Dance” and “The Duke” a lot.

I also just heard a jazz bassist named Esperanza Spalding (on NPR’s “Tiny Desk Concert” podcasts – SUBSCRIBE!). She was amazing. I don’t have any of her music yet but will soon buy some.

You can get 1,000 free songs from each year’s SXSW here.

I find that I keep about 1 of every 5 or 6 songs, and they do stay with me.

My current faves are:

Beg, Borrow or Steal by Ray LaMontagne
Little Lion Man by Mumford and Sons

and pretty much anything by Bob Schneider; if you’re not familiar, check out “40 Dogs” and “Bring the Bringdown”

@GeorgeGee I fell in love with Eva Cassidy’s “Fields of Gold” when Michelle Kwan skated to it after she lost the gold medal to Tara Lipinsky. You can see that performance here

@OreetCocker Roam and Love Shack are 2 of the best pick me up songs of all time!
