I'm putting together a care package for a friend of mine who just bought her first condo, and I'd like to include some music. My mixtape muse has fled, and I need suggestions for songs about real estate, houses, condos, mortgages - you know, the usual stuff of melodic inspiration.

If you had $200-500 you could use in obtaining an entirely new stereo system, solely for the purpose of making mixtapes, what'd you do with it? [more inside]

What (preferably good) songs shift back and forth between fast and slow? I'm trying to put together an iPod playlist for a workout that goes back and forth between slow, steady jogging and spurts of sprinting. (Yeah, I know--I could just alternate slow songs and fast songs--but then the tempo would only shift every 3 minutes or so.) All genres are welcome, although I have a slight bias towards either jazz/swing or indie rock for this particular mix.

Every year I put together a 'best of' comp' to hand out to holiday guests. This year I'm drawing a blank. Fiery Furnaces- sure, Wolf Eyes- Maybe. Mirah, again, this year? I'm having a hard time finding the anthems of 2004. Maybe today's songwriters got too swept up in the election to write a classic 'head-nodder'? Maybe I just got to caught up in the election to listen? Can you help? What's your best pick of the year?
