This week’s playlist comes from Rob, and is a collection of songs from his favorite time of year:
“October” by U2 (A somber beginning, an epic tune)
“September” by Kami Lyle ( Jazzy tune from an unknown genius)
“October” by Broken Bells (Hip. Cool. Dig it.)
“November” by Duncan Sheik (Great writer. Nice guy. Sad song.)
“November” by Tom Waits (Freak does what he does best)
“On The Radio” by Regina Spektor (She name drops “November Rain”, which wasn’t gonna make the cut!)
“May-December” by Mos Def (I want to be Mos Def.)
“A Long December” by Counting Crows (A great song from a band that continues to disappoint.)

The video submissions for our contest so far have been incredible. Better than, well, better than the prizes we were offering. So to sweeten the pot, and since the live shows have been getting so much love and attention from you guys, we thought we could give away some live paraphernalia as prizes. In addition to the autographed vinyl and outgoing voicemail recording from us, winners will receive signed drumheads from our summer tour, signed and dated set-lists, and one lucky winner will get the tambourine Adri is playing in the “You’re Not Listening” video. Keep the entries coming, and spread the word! Get all the details at http://www.therescues.com/letloosethehorses.
The Rescues’ song “Stay Over” will be featured on the next episode of the CW’s hit show Life Unexpected. The show airs Tuesday Sept. 21st at 9/8c. Visit http://www.cwtv.com/shows/life-unexpected for more information.
This week’s playlist is from Gabe and features songs written and produced by Dr. Luke:
You’re Not Listening seems to be affecting people in very deep but different ways. I don’t think the song is NOT about that, but there is a deep sense to me of not letting YOURSELF get you down when nothing has worked out as planned. -R

never. we always get along. psych!
if we didn’t disagree and sometimes fight it would mean we weren’t being honest with each other. we’re more or less in a 4-way marriage so communication is key. we’re also a democracy so that means sometimes you get overruled and you just have to get over it. you win some, you lose some, and it’s often an exercise in humility, but we do strive to always honor and respect each other’s ideas.
sometimes we go to bed mad. but then we play a show together and remember why we love this band so much and all’s right with the world again. playing a show is the equivalent of make-up sex. ;)
I remember the day we started writing the lyrics to this one, Rob came in and had witnessed a motorcycle accident on the side of the highway. he described some pretty vivid images from the scene that got us thinking about mortality and having to say goodbye and let go. impossible things to do.
i was reminded of an idea that was touched on in a book i read awhile ago but that has always stuck with me (Aldous Huxley- Doors of Perception)…the idea being that you can be so close to another person that you almost become one, you read each other’s minds, finish each other’s sentences. but even if you hold that person’s hand all the way to the brink of death, ultimately you have to cross that threshold on your own, alone.
saying goodbye is the hardest thing i’ve ever had to do. this song is from the other side, from the point of view of the person who is leaving, dying, going “back into the sun.” i imagine it’s pretty hard to be on that end of goodbye too.
aww, shucks! and thanks for that inaugural formspring question.
this band is a blast. what does it feel like? hmmm. it’s like that high that you get after running for a few miles…runner’s euphoria. we’ve been working pretty hard for awhile, us 4, and we’re starting to hit a stride now and it feels great. it really is a “teenage dream” come true!
