We saw the surprisingly excellent movie “Nick and Norah’s Infinite Playlist” this week, and as the title suggests, it actually does come with a really awesome playlist — er, soundtrack.
Some of the songs will put you to sleep, so stick with the top four, supplemented with some randoms from elsewhere on my iPod. This includes a few oldies but goodies from Vampire Weekend, inspired by my discovery of “Ottoman,” which is on the Nick and Norah soundtrack. As usual, post your own suggestions below if you’ve got ’em — I’m always looking for sweet new running tunes.
Lover – Devendra Banhart
Ottoman – Vampire Weekend
Riot Radio – The Dead 60s
Very Loud – Shout Out Louds
Walcott – Vampire Weekend
Mudhouse – Bob Schneider
M79 – Vampire Weekend
Death to Los Campesinos! – Los Campesinos!
A-Punk – Vampire Weekend
Get Back – Ludacris
So What – Pink (thanks for helping me rediscover this one, Sarah!)
Radio Nowhere – Bruce Springsteen
