GOBL's Top 50: #37 & #36

They say a picture is worth a thousand words.  If that's the case, a video must be worth way more than a picture.  After all, a video is a series of changing photos, is it not?  So then for me to write miniature essays on top of these videos would simply be overkill.  After all, I don't want to be accused of being overly wordy.

With that in mind, I present you the overdue #37 song, courtesy of The Orbans, with directing credits to the video going to Jon Collins.

Now on to song #36, courtesy of The Roomsounds. The band finally released their self titled debut album this year, making it the newest entry on the countdown. Or is it really the newest entry? While the song was re-recorded for the debut album, I discovered the song in 2009 courtesy of Mark of the Local Edge. The version I'm sharing here, however, is neither the original or the new version. The video below was a live performance recorded in 2010 at the ScatFest in Paris, Texas. Speaking of live performances of The Roomsounds, they'll be playing tonight outside of the Deep Ellum Food Truck Rally. Set time is 8:00 p.m.
